Now that I’ve featured our gorgeous new exclusive piece, here is a list of 10 more pieces that would make the perfect gift! I tried to include something for every women’s taste! I’ll list their names and details below.

1.CORINTHIANS BANGLE |MADE IN INDIA


Proclaim “Love is patient, love is kind“ with this curved-edge silver bangle. Inscribed in both English and Hindi. 

2. LOVE BOWL | MADE IN INDIA

This dark finish wire bowl is filled to the brim with love. I think it would be so nice filled with some Fair Trade chocolates! Everyone loves chocolate! Or…. write her a bunch of love notes and fill the bowl up! She will be flattered and can be reminded of your love for her throughout the year.

3. LOVE HEALS SET | MADE IN USA

Pamper yourself or gift someone with this set of all natural beauty products. Each set includes a roll-on energy essential oil, pomegranate lip smoothie, and a tea tree mint lip balm. This set is made by women in Tennessee who have survived lives of violence, prostitution, and addiction. They have been wounded and hurt but, through your purchase, are being offered a new life! The women in this job training program are proving that “Love Heals.” Be a part of their healing today! 

4. OFFER OF HOPE CUFF SET |INDIA

This set comes with wire-wrapped square earrings, an adjustable ring, and an adjustable cuff bracelet, so you won’t even have to worry about knowing her ring size!

5. BEGINNINGS JOURNAL | INDIA

This light tan leather journal is embossed with a botanical pattern, holds blank artisan-made paper, and has a beautiful latch closure.  You should fill it up with sweet love notes!

6. PAISLEY JOURNAL | INDIA

Give her flowers in a unique way! This fabric-covered journal holds handmade paper that has small, imprinted pieces of marigold petals. This has such a fun story, since the Hindi writing on the front tells stories of kings and queens of old. I always picture love stories when I look at it. <3

7. WORTHY NECKLACE | INDIA

Rose Gold is so trendy, yet still timeless! Beautifully delicate in design, this rose gold plated chain displays a light pink rose quartz stone. 

8. STEADFAST CUFF | INDIA

This beautifully hammered rose gold cuff has an open crossed design for an elegant contemporary statement. It would pair perfectly with the Worthy Necklace!

9. SAMBA FRINGE EARRINGS | THAILAND

Playful maroon tassels fan out from these delightfully festive statement earrings. They would be so fun and flirty on your Valentine’s Day date night!

10. BLACK SUNDARA SET | INDIA

I thought this set would be perfect to place a bouquet of flowers in the larger one, and a candle in the smaller one! She would love to come home to that on her table or even on her desk at work! It would be a unique way to give her flowers, and she could use them to decorate with for years to come!
