Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men

Let’s face it; us ladies are a little spoilt for choice when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. We have a huge range of flowers, chocolates, jewellery, clothing, books, cuddly toys and other suitably romantic gifts designed for us. But when it comes to shopping for our men folk, the high street seems to be sorely lacking in manly love gifts. Even the Valentine’s cards seem to be geared towards the girls but don’t really have anything suitable for the dudes. Well, we like to think that Shiny Creations has a little something for everyone, especially if you can’t find it anywhere else. So, I’ve dedicated this blog post to …

Never fear, Shiny Creations has some top tips to help you hold on to that holiday feeling… even when it’s raining cats and dogs! Summer scents: Did you have a particular perfume/body spray this summer? Most ‘holiday marketed’ scents are there one month and off the shelves by the next. So when they come into season, bulk-buy so you can keep that summer spritz for longer. Or maybe you picked up a certain scent whilst on an exotic holiday; passing a lemon stand in Italy, or drinking a cocktail from a coconut in the Caribbean.  Find a …

How Shiny Creations Saved the Day.

One of the many reasons I started Shiny Creations was because I loved making personal gifts for the people I loved. That soon leaked into making personal gifts for strangers. It’s not just the simple act of making a fine craft by hand that I enjoy, but also in the agonising, tiny details that make a product truly personalised. I will often spend days working on a product until it is perfect. Though yesterday I took on a challenge that had me wondering if I had been dropped on my head as a child and everyone just forgot to tell me. Yesterday morning I received a panicked phone call; a …
