Make this Valentine’s Day one to cherish with personalized accessories from Anavi Designs
This Valentine’s Day is going to be different, we all know that, but it’s more important to hold the ones we love closer, especially after the year we’ve experienced. Personalized gifts, especially ones with meaning and memory, will be cherished long after these days have become foggy in our minds. Toronto-based accessories brand Anavi Designs makes gift-giving easy for even your most discerning loved ones.
For the Sustainable Romantic
Starting as a way to give back to the community and the planet, Anavi launched their line of Denim Totes last year. Using quality denim sourced from local second-hand stores and donation centers, each tote is unique and carries its own personality. Couples can bring in their own jeans (perhaps the ones they each wore on their very first date?) and give them new life. What better way to remember a great day and be sustainably minded?
For the Sentimental Collector
Surprise a loved one by repurposing a cherished vintage brooch into a new handbag. Often we keep brooches in jewelry boxes which can be forgotten and neglected. By transferring these keepsakes, it can be admired and worn often in the form of a purse. Brooches can be affixed to existing styles or to a custom-designed purse or bag.
For the Experience Lover
For those who love to be a part of an experience, purchase a gift card that they can use to create their dream purse. With a one-on-one design collaboration with Creative Director & Anavi Founder Ivana Walker, they can go through the process of creating a bespoke creation from selecting the leather, wool, or vegan leather to deciding on the hardware, shape, lining, and special design elements to ensure the finished piece fully embodies their spirit. Design consultations can be done virtually from anywhere around the world or in-person at their boutique in Toronto, Canada.
