Columbia Forest Products Alexander Girard PLYprint® - Love Heart

I know a major round of holidays just ended and the last thing anyone wants to think about is another holiday. I also know that a lot of people are not too gung-ho with what will soon be coming our way…Valentine’s Day. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but the fact is V-day is approaching and whether you are super, semi or hope to be chummy with your love he/she probably wants a small token of appreciation whether you like it or not. So, I thought I would collect some of my favorite Design Public Valentine’s Day-ish gift ideas…

For the guy/gal you feel a super strong attachment to, one of these may symbolize your love. You’d be surprised by how many pieces we have of two people attached to one another…

1.) A Hybrid-Home Anatomical Print:

1.) The Thorsten van Elten Good China Bad China featuring the 7 Deadly Sins and 7 Seven Contrary Virtues: Abstinence against Gluttony (serving plates) , Humility against Pride, Kindness against Envy, Chastity against Lust, Temperance against Anger, Charity against Greed, Diligence against Sloth:

Or, if you are in trouble and need to make it up to someone but don’t know what to say, the Thorsten van Elten Honesty Stamps will do it for you.

Available in:
- All I ask for is one last chance
- I sincerely apologise for all the trouble I’ve caused
- I swear on my mother’s grave I’ll never do that again
- I know in the past I’ve found it difficult to say these words but I LOVE YOU
- What do you mean I’m always too busy?
- You’re right, the key to a strong relationship is communication.
- Set of two Stamps – It wasn’t my fault! & But I’ve changed!
