A Year of Dates
Go out there and have fun.
The perfect gift that keeps you laughing, trying new things and making memories together. with friends or by yourself. Everyone has busy lives and the dates are here to help you spend quality time doing things you might not have thought of or wanted to suggest.
At A Year of Dates, we are a small business built on a Christmas present from husband to wife; a date jar containing sealed envelopes – the same style glass jar that we use today.
We are on a mission to encourage everyone to date more, spend quality time with friends, make memories with your family – and most of all have fun! Life is fast paced and fitting it all in is tricky, often the best bits are the first things we give up – the adventures, the date nights, the laughter.
All our ideas are sealed in envelopes, so there is a surprise for everyone, and the decision is made for you once you open the card.
A thoughtful gift that has led to an award winning business, and lots of happy couples all over the world.

Welcome To Little Things To Cherish
Hello. I’m Catherine: the artist and founder of this small, family-run business. I have always loved to draw and paint and with huge support from my fantastic family and friends I am living my dream. I began my business, in September 2016 selling paintings I created and restoring furniture. All this changed in February 2017. When I received some heartbreaking news; a former pupil of mine aged only 11yrs had passed away. A young boy called Charlie who had bravely fought a battle against Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an extremely rare paediatric brain tumour. Charlie’s funeral was a sad, gloomy day filled with rain and clouds. But something very special happened when we came out of the church. The clouds parted, and a rainbow appeared. One of Charlie’s classmates pointed up and said, “LOOK! It’s Charlie letting us know he is okay.” My rainbow art was born.
If there’s something that’s important to you, let me know, I’d love to work for you.
Sofia Ryan is an online floral designer specialising in forever roses, based in Chorley, Lancashire.
My business is named after my twins.
I make bespoke flower arrangements. Made to order services.
The roses are real and have been preserved to last a year or more. They are in luxury hatboxes and also in glass domes. No water or sunshine is needed.
I also emboss on fresh roses lovely messages that customers can choose themselves to be printed on the roses. They usually last about 3-4 weeks in sufficient water.
All of these gifts are carefully handmade by me. I also have hand-poured luxury soy organic candles. Beautiful and just gorgeous.
I hope you will love my roses and the candles as much I do and when I make others happy, it’s an amazing feeling I will always treasure.
