Santes Dwynen 25th January
With St Dwynwen’s day fast approaching, we thought we’d list a few of our favourite gift ideas to show that special person that you care. St Dwynwen’s day is on the 25th January and it’s an important date on the welsh calendar so what better way to celebrate it than with traditional welsh gifts?
Love Spoons are an important symbol of such a romantic day and whilst a hand-carved wooden spoon is certainly something special, this twist on the classic gift is perfect. Don’t want to clutter the house? These chocolate love spoons made by Wickedly Welsh are sure to disappear in minutes! Almost look too good to eat. Almost.
We always find that a good “paned” is the way to a person’s heart, whether it be coffee or tea. Finding local coffee or loose-leaf tea adds a special touch to a gift that is sure to be used every day. With the environment needing a helping hand now a days, you could even pick up a reusable bamboo mug to keep them nice and toasty!
Why not go a step further and create a fully customised Afternoon Tea hamper. You can choose your loved one’s favourite roast, add a couple of tasty welsh treats (Bara Brith, anyone?) and tie it all off with a ribbon!
Is your loved one not so much of a sweet tooth? How about some welsh cheeses or even a selection of chutneys or pate? There is no end to the options of booze-infused treats for the special man in your life. We absolutely love the Whiskey infused Amber Mist cheese from the Snowdonia Cheese company, or Stilton and Guinness cheese pate from Patchwork Pate.
