Here at Devon Pixels we have seeking great Valentine’s Day gift ideas that are either made, designed or sourced in Devon.

Initially we thought this may be a difficult task, but soon enough we discovered these amazing Valentine’s Day Gifts from Devon ❤️

Valentines Potters Wheel Experience with Fizz & Gift

Tarka Pottery

Why not surprise your Valentine with a Potters Wheel Experience for 2? While we can’t guarantee a repeat performance of the iconic Patrick Swayze & Jennifer Grey scene, we can offer an relaxing, enjoyable creative activity for 2.
Our Valentine special includes 30 minutes on pottery wheels, having a go at throwing your own matching bowls. Even if the bowls don’t quite match, the hour you spend afterwards decorating them with a glass of bucks fizz will make the whole experience a thoroughly perfect Valentines activity.
When you’ve made and decorated, we glaze your pottery in a colour of your choice before it’s fired ready to collect.
Includes a complimentary glass of bucks fizz (or a hot drink if you prefer), a personalised handmade ceramic heart tag for you to keep and firing of your finished bowls.
The whole experience takes up to 1.5 hours and is suitable for adults only.
Your Valentines Pottery will be ready to collect within 10 days
We can post onto you – standard p&p charges apply.

You can buy a voucher online

Cobalt blue is one of the rarest sea glass colours to find. It was used for medicine and poison bottles. This chunk of sea glass was bezelled in sterling silver exactly as it was found, and has produced a stunning ring.

Artisan Truffles and Chocolates

Chocolats de Caprine – North Devon

We are a very small producer of artisan truffles and chocolates which are lovingly made in the rolling hills of North Devon near Torrington. Totally hand made from the cream, and where required hand churned butter, produced using the milk from our small herd of dairy goats. We use only high quality chocolate, natural flavourings or alcohol.

As goats milk is clean and sweet, we discovered that we needed to add no extra sugar in the truffles, and also with the reduced lactose, 50% of people who are intolerant to cows milk, can eat our truffles. We then took this one stage further and use no gluten containing ingredients or nuts, and so we can confidently say our chocolates are:

  • COWS MILK FREE
  • GLUTEN FREE
  • WHEAT FREE
  • NUT FREE
  • EGG FREE

and the smaller fat molecules in goats milk, gives a lighter, smoother and less cloying ganache.

Paper Mache Creations and Decorative Fimo Designs

Sarah Cox – Artist – North Devon

I’m Sarah Cox, Artist, maker of paper mache creations and decorative fimo designs. I live and work in Ilfracombe, a stone’s throw from the sea, where I have been for 9 years. Ever since I was a child I always yearned to live by the sea and I finally made the move in 2006 with my family when I regained by creative appetite. With a graphic design degree I love design and exploring how colours work together. The sea and coast is my main inspiration, from tiny exotic fish to large mackerel canvases, and seagulls, beach huts, the list is endless, if it’s possible to make it, I will!
