Valentine’s Day will be different this year. Do you know why? Because your gift will be unique and original, handmade by a Canarian craftsperson.

Every 14th February romance is in the air, making you want to give a special gift to the one you love. For this Valentine’s Day we offer you special gifts full of feeling, but above all unique and original, made with tender loving care by our Creative Craftspeople of Fuerteventura.

Discover the ideal gift for your loved one from a carefully selected range of items and accessories for him and for her.

A very special key hanger

You get home and there it is: love is waiting for you by the door. This hand-carved key hanger has room for four keys, but also for belts, necklaces, bracelets, scarves…

Its heart-shaped design, in turquoise mottled with white, looks like pumice stone. This decorative item is 100% ecological. Why? Because it’s made from recycled wood and the paints and varnishes used are acrylic and ecological.

In the words of  Marcos the craftsman behind this key hanger: “follow your heart and let love be your guide, for love is surely the most powerful force there is.”

A shoulder bag to fall in love with

You can’t keep love tucked away, but if you could, you’d definitely keep it in this shoulder bag. And it’s not just any bag.

Flypart hecho a mano has used all the colours of a summer sunset to design this handmade calfskin shoulder bag. It is unisex and has an adjustable strap so you can wear it at the length that suits you best. It is also hand-sewn and has metal buckles. 

A shoulder bag made with lots of love, lots of detail and above all the creativity of Paula and Felipe, the artisans of Flypart hecho a mano.

Tiles of love

The yellow brick road led Dorothy to Oz, but these tiles with heart designs will guide you to pure, true love.

Red, the colour of love, had to be included in this pack of 4 ceramic tiles with little hearts measuring 3.5 x 3.5 cm. To create them, Andrea, a ceramic artisan, has glazed them at 1000 degrees helping to make them more hard-wearing They come with double-sided tape so you can stick them on any wall or in any corner you choose, creating a colourful touch with a message for your home. Remember, you can order your hearts in whatever size and colours you like.

It’s a lovely detail to add to a gift to express your love and affection. Special, unique tiles for a special occasion: Valentine’s Day.

Earrings unique in every way

You will fall in love with them as soon as you see them. If your partner likes accessories, they will love these elliptical ceramic earrings set in sterling silver. They don’t need clasps because the weight of the beads alone keeps them on the ear.

The ceramic pieces have been created with different types of ceramic paste, and Pitoya, the craftswoman who brings Caracola to life, has used oxides and metallic dyes to give them those two shades of blue.

Different, handmade, original. Unique earrings for a unique person.

Flowers never fail

And if they don’t wither, they’ll last for ever.

So it is with the bouquet of flowers handmade by María, an artisan basketmaker. She personally gathers the green and white Canary Island palm leaves she uses to create these non-perishable flowers.

You’ll notice how natural they feel, the details of the traditional plaited palm empleita used to sew them, and the feeling of craftsmanship and tradition they convey.

This year your vase will have a touch of Canarian style, handmade and personal.

A hand-woven bracelet

If you’re looking for something attractive, hard-wearing and special, this wide handmade macramé bracelet is all that and more. In the centre it has a green gemstone, but if you prefer another colour combination, just ask Martin, its maker.

Martin uses the finest quality waxed threads to create his macramé costume jewellery. Treating the thread with wax makes it long-lasting and proof against anything.  

Let the knots that form this handmade macramé bracelet be the lasting bonds of your life.

A candle designed specially for you

The flame of love will never be extinguished with this natural soy candle.

You can personalize this candle, made by hand from soy wax and carved with roses, by giving it your favourite aroma: lavender, jasmine, mint, lemon… so that the room you put it in will transport you to that unique, special moment you were waiting for. You can also choose the colour.

The Taller de los Aromas (Aroma Workshop) creates, wraps and labels all its products by hand, so we can guarantee that this candle is 100% ecological  and handmade, from production to packaging.
