I am always on the lookout for great ideas for gifts, especially for the people I know who already seem to have everything. Peach Perfect is a site which seems to have been created to address exactly that need – it is packed full of unusual and beautiful things which make perfect presents.
I was sent one of the Art Glass Hanging Heart ornaments to review, it arrived well packaged and protected and in perfect condition. As soon as you pick the item up you can tell that it is of a high quality, the item is handmade and mouth blown, and is surprisingly heavy to hold, whilst still appearing delicate and ethereal.
The hearts are available from the site in a range of colours, and each one will be completely unique. By combining a simple shape with a range of colour options and a traditional craft skill these hearts would look fantastic in a range of styles of house. Although to truly appreciate the beauty of these hearts they need to be placed near a light source – we hung ours in front of a window, and the colours change and sparkle as the light hits it and changes. On these dark evenings with the light low in the sky sometimes the heart almost looks as though it is lit from within, as the rays bounce off the swirls and colours.
These hearts are really unusual and charming, and at £13, excellent value. I love finding things which are a bit different from what you might find on the high street; it’s also lovely to buy something which you know supports a traditional style of art and which has been painstakingly handmade. I plan to order a few for presents for people and to stock my gift-drawer. They would also make a lovely alternative to a bunch of flowers or a bottle of wine when visiting a friend.
A high quality, hand-crafted item at an incredible price. A perfect gift for someone who appreciates the finer things in life.
