Valentine’s day is approaching, and it’s a good time to surprise your loved ones in a special way. In this post, moomin.com has selected the most Moominous Valentine’s day presents, inspired by three Moomin characters: Snorkmaiden, Snufkin, and Moominmamma.
Something shiny and beautiful for a fan of Snorkmaiden
Snorkmaiden is a daydreamer and often imagines what her prince charming will be like. She keeps her fringe neatly combed and wears a gold anklet. Snorkmaiden may be a little vain and flirtatious, but very resourceful when she’s in a tight spot. But what to give your own Snorkmaiden for Valentine’s? Something shiny and pretty, of course!
The Moments necklace by Lingon Design is a dream come true for a jewellry-loving Moomin fan: a beautiful silver jewel, picturing two sea shells seeking one another. The designer of the necklace, Lina Simons says: “Moments is my celebration of those moments in life you want to share with someone special.” Sounds like the perfect Valentine’s Day gift!
It’s important to have somewhere to store all those seashells and pearls. Martinex’ large Moomin purse is perfect for coins, cards and other small treasures. The lovely illustration on the purse features Moomintroll enjoying in the blooming garden.
Those treasures that don’t fit in a purse must also be stored somewhere. Muurla’s storage basket adds colour to the interior and makes one smile just looking at it. The image of Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden hugging will surely remind the gift receiver of you.
Something sweet and tasty as well! Teministeriet’s rooibos tea is a delicious blend with currants, papaya, strawberry and raspberry. The smell and taste of this tea reminds of adventures in the Moominvalley. The caffeine-free tea comes in a beautiful, reusable tin box.
Making the real-life Snufkin’s adventures easier
Snufkin is a philosophical vagabond who wanders the world fishing and playing the harmonica. He carries everything he needs in his backpack, as he believes that having too much stuff makes life overly complicated. The real-life Snufkins are most likely spending their Valentine’s Day fishing or wandering around somewhere, so their gifts should be suitable for outdoor life.
When wandering the world, it’s important to keep the stuff you need safe. Docover’s iPhone case comes with a waterproof bag, making it a must-have for all those who spend time by the water.
The day outdoors will be much more fun if one is properly hydrated. The stylish thermos bottle from Martinex keeps the drink temperature for 12 hours, making it perfect for longer hikes and other adventures.
Lastly, one should not forget to cover their eyes when going outdoors! Everyone needs a pair of sunglasses, and what would be better than a pair of Snufkin sunglasses by Gloryfy?
What is common to all these products is that they also do their part in taking care of our nature: all the items are part of the #OURSEA campaign, protecting the Baltic Sea and its unique heritage. From every #OURSEA item sold, a part of the proceeds is donated directly to the campaign.
Cozying the home in Moominmamma style
Is your Valentine a fan of Moominmamma? The calm and collected mother who never lets little things get on her nerves and who ensures that the Moominhouse is always a safe and loving place – both for her family and for visitors. Here are some gift ideas for those who identify themselves with her!
All home chefs needs an apron, of course. Finlayson’s Dreaming Moominmamma apron makes cooking more Moominous and helps keep clothes clean. No one wants jam on their dress, right?
Speaking of dresses – People Tree’s gorgeous dress comes in the same colours as Moominmamma’s apron. The dress, made of organic cotton, is comfortable to wear at home but also works for the moments when you want to dress up a little.
Spending time at home with the whole family is the best, and candles are a great way of making the home cozier. Muurla’s candle holders made of glass lighten up the room beautifully and create a magical atmosphere to the house.
Even the most hard-working ones need a break sometimes, and Finlayson’s blanket makes those moments comfy. The grey cotton blanket is perfect for curling up on the sofa or taking a nap on a busy day.
