WIN with Gifts from Franschhoek this Valentine’s Day

Whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day most of us still secretly love being spoilt on this day. In the end it is still a great excuse for the romantics at heart out there to be a tad bit soppy by saying “I love you!”. But honestly it’s not always easy to cut through the clutter to find the perfect gift and being creative year on year can be quite the challenge! To make this year’s Valentine’s special and simple we have approached the Gifts from Franschhoek online shop to share their most romantic gift ideas below. Best is that you can order and pay for these online and your gifts will be delivered straight to your door. Now that sounds like the type of Valentine’s Day everyone will love!

These gorgeous handmade wooden heart boards are made in Franschhoek. It is perfect for serving cupcakes or cheeses or simply use it as an everyday chopping board.

Is your other half a foodie at heart? Then you can’t go wrong with this beautifully illustrated “Babel” recipe book from Babylonstoren.

Instead of buying a gift this year, what about spoiling your loved one with some quality time in Franschhoek? At La Bri you can taste their range of handcrafted Turkish Delight paired with three La Bri wines and get a gift to take home with you. 

Spice up any Valentine’s Day with some Chili infused olive oil from Noble Hill or some Angel Hair Chili imported from France.

And lastly for the garden guru you can’t go wrong with this handmade solid Iroko wooden pot maker locally produced in Franschhoek.  Plant your seed or young seedling into the pot, when transplanting, the whole pot can be planted into the garden as the newspaper is biodegradable and never have to buy a plant pot again!
