Handmade with Love

Handmade gifts of love from my heart. Unique handmade gifts for Baby Showers, Wedding Favours and Corporate gifts and giveaways. My passion is to bring you natural, homemade gifts created with natural, raw and Organic ingredients where possible, without any nasty chemicals.

From novelty handmade soaps to ebooks with recipes and tutorials, you will find goodies and gifts that are not only good for your body but also great for your soul and the environment.

Handmade with Love is about keeping age old traditions alive, teaching our younger generation to create with their hearts and mind and igniting passion by simple skills. I am passionate about teaching our kids the beautiful art of handmade.

I started Handmadewithlove.nz to inspire people to look at everything they use on their skin and eat and to encourage them to be able to make soap, beauty and skincare products for themselves. I also do classes in handmade soap and skincare.Buy-handmade
