Winter months are a time of giving and showing your love for friends and family. Here at Simply Inspired, we believe in conscious consumption by offering socially responsible gifts for everyone in your life. With Valentine’s Day approaching, we’ve compiled a list of 5 handmade artisan gifts that give back!
Artisan Crafted Wool Felted Bee Bag Gift Set
These stunning handmade wool felted bee bags are our not only one of our biggest sellers, but one of our most inspiring products. Skillfully handmade in Nepal by local women, the Simply Inspired Bee Bag aids in creating employment opportunities. A community of women gather together to make every felt bag from local wool. After felting and shaping each bag, a sewing circle of women stitch all the sweet honey bee details. Your bee bag is fair-trade and made with love, empowering the women of these villages.

Handmade Gifts - Made With Love
If you looking for a unique Valentine's Day gift, consider this beautiful hand-felted wool bee bag! The bag includes a nourishing Vanilla Honey Bee Bar Lotion and a yummy Vanilla Almond Lip Butter Tube.
Rich with Anti-Aging, antioxidant Pomegranate seed oil and Shea Butter, the soothing Lip Butter will drench dry, cracked lips in moisture, refreshing and rejuvenating them for visibly soother lips.
The lotion includes essential oils and butters that are released and can be gently massaged into the skin and absorbed like any lotion.
This is the perfect gift for your honey, your BFF's, or yourself!
