SOME THOUGHTS ON LOVELY,

SIM­PLE THINGS TO SEND

A hand­made card: This doesn’t have to be per­fectly il­lus­trated or in­clude a long mes­sage – just have fun and let some­one know you’re think­ing of them. And you could use our ower cut-outs to make a card!

Seeds: I love the sense of hope and the for­ward-look­ing na­ture of giv­ing seeds. They’re not just for avid gar­den­ers ei­ther. Herbs or small, in­door ow­ers are ideal for those re­stricted to a few pots on the win­dowsill.

Pressed ow­ers I of­ten pressed ow­ers be­tween heavy books when I was

Iit­tle and re­cently saw a friend’s child continuing this age-old tra­di­tion with a sim­ple ower-press she’d been given. It’s such a thought­ful (and in­ex­pen­sive) way to send ow­ers.

Mini care pack­age: For me, a care pack­age should be about com­fort, things to cud­dle up with and en­joy – a favourite tea, maybe even a good novel, and cer­tainly a treat to eat.

Pho­tos: Real, ac­tual printed pho­tos! I take so many pic­tures th­ese days, it’s lovely to share them as prints some­times, as re­minders of happy mo­ments spent to­gether.
