1 BAKING LOVE
We’re completely obsessed with this glorious pink baking bowl It’s the perfect size for mixing Valentine’s cakes and puddings. It’s a real stunner with embossed hearts all around the side, so you’ll want to find a proud spot for it on your work surface. We’ve been working with Mason Cash for a while now and we’re so impressed with the quality of their lovely products. You can find out more in our cupcake tutorial
2 COSY CANDLE
Candles never get old, especially when they’re from Nathalie Bond Organics. This one combines the sweet garden scents of rose geranium with the earthy shades of patchouli, and will transport you far away to a fairytale garden. All these candles are blended with 100% natural soy wax with no hidden chemicals, free from nasties and vegan friendly.
You’ll love the scent too – this gorgeous candle will fill your home with springtime fragrances and I can definitely recommend it on the side of the bath for your Valentine’s soak.
