Valentine’s Gift Ideas!

By

Romantic jewellery, art and accessories for the season of love.

Are you a lover or a hater of Valentine’s Day? The holiday of love isn’t beloved by everyone, but we think it can be nice to have a little romance and optimism injected into the greyest time of the year! And we can’t argue with all that extra chocolate. Whatever you make of the concept Valentine’s Day has its perks, right?

In that spirit we’ve put together a collection of Valentine’s gift ideas with just a hint of romance about them, from traditional gold jewellery to vibrant art and sweet cards. The independent designers behind them have used the classic symbolism of love in a fresh, interesting way that we think you’ll adore – whether you’re coupled up or not. We hope they’ll inspire you to embrace your romantic side!

A few gift ideas…

Symbolic rose quartz is the perfect material for a Valentine’s gift:

Hannah Zakari 2019 Christmas Gift Guide – Fruits and Flowers!

By

Christmas Gift Guide – jewellery, stationery, art and accessories inspired by nature!

There’s a lot to love about winter. Crisp days, snow, mulled wine by a roaring fire, and of course – Christmas! One thing we don’t love, though, is the loss of all the beautiful flowers and fruit that fill our gardens in summer. If you know any keen gardeners or nature lovers, they might be feeling the same thing! That’s why we’ve created this Christmas gift guide full of colourful fruit and flower themed gift ideas. Help them to recapture the vibrancy of summer with a gorgeous flower necklace or a fun pair of fruit earrings!

The pieces below have been created by independent artists, and a gift bought from them is also a great way to support small business this Christmas while getting your loved ones something really unique! In the run up to the 25th we’ll be publishing a few of these gift guides to show off our favourite pieces by indie designers and hopefully give you some fresh gift ideas.

Introducing… Brie Harrison!

Introducing a new designer to Hannah Zakari, Brie Harrison!

We’ve recently started stocking some wonderful designs by a new designer to Hannah Zakari: Brie Harrison! Our card shelves are looking especially lovely right now as a result. They’re bursting with plant life, pattern and colour, all hallmarks of Brie’s work! These pretty botanical card designs are also really versatile; the simple plant illustrations are suitable for just about any occasion you can think of (you could even use them as miniature art prints for your own wall)!

Brie Harrison is a British illustrator and designer based in Suffolk, where the beautiful surrounding countryside inspires her work. She’s a Printed Textile Design graduate, and you can see the influence of that background in her skilled use of colour and pattern! Her stunning range of paper goods features house plants, patterned crockery, fruit and seasonal flowers.
