I was a Bridesmaid at my friends wedding earlier in the year and I wanted to get her something special as a wedding gift – something from a small independent crafter.
Sadly she lost her dad 18 months ago and I wanted to get something that would include him. So I found the cutest Lockets from a UK based lady whose blog I had read for a number of years. Bonbi Forest is based in Cornwall and she leads an idyllic life creating and selling her crafts online. You should check her out.
I went for this locket and put a photo of my friend in one side and her dad in the other. I gave it to her on her wedding day and she wrapped it around her bouquet so it was like her dad walked her down the isle – it was beautiful and sad at the same time.
Everything was amazing from the packaging right down to the quality of the locket.
I loved the hand printed paper – the locket was wrapped inside it. So simple but unusual too. Always Over The Mountain Locket £19
I’d highly recommend bonbi forest and will be using this lovely shop again for a few other gifts. It’s always nice to buy from handmade sites where you can!
