Shop Local – Handmade York

Gifts & Keepsakes

Based in York, Katie at SEEDS OF LOVE creates thoughtful and sentimental flower seed packets, all with uniquely crafted poems to suit the occasion and reflect the mood. Whether you’re looking for a wedding favour with a difference, teacher thankyou gifts, a unique birthday wish, a beautiful funeral memorial, a special marking of an anniversary, or a thoughtful expression of sympathy, you’ll find gifts your friends and family will treasure here at Seeds of Love.

All the seeds have been carefully selected for their meaning or their name. They’re easy-to-grow British varieties which flower back each year and won’t just look lovely in your pots and borders, they also help protect the habitats of our native butterflies and bees. Just another way we can share the love.

Katie will also try to create poems on request if required for any other reason. £3 per packet plus small postage fee, quantity depending.


Delicious by Claire

Delicious by Claire produces small batch Jam’s, Jellies and Preserves. We are based in Rural East Yorkshire. Our ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible and often come from the family farm to guarantee a jar bursting with seasonal flavours. An advantage of making small quantities is that I can ensure great taste, flavour and seasonality using the best quality ingredients.
