Valentine’s Day is all about showing your partner how special they are. This February skip the typical brand name jewelry or sports stores and show your love for not only your partner but for the world with a one-of-a-kind gift from The Curious Tour. From bold hand-beaded bracelets to handsome turned wood vessels, each of these pieces is made with expert skill and balance by talented African artists.
At The Curious Tour, we are proud to distribute unique gifts that support the hardworking artists in South Africa through the Mdukatshani Project. Your Valentine’s gift will not only be a meaningful way to show your partner you love them, but 50% of all proceeds will go towards a wonderful cause, which encourages women’s economic independence through skilled craft-making, supports sustainable farming practices and furthers education.
Top Valentine’s Gifts for Her & Him
