You know the drill. You go out with this plan to make a great impression this holiday. “Don’t. Mess. It. Up.” You tell yourself. You get chocolate and dead! We can’t all have a green thumb and cut roses only last so long, so say hello to the no wilt, no guilt bouquet. Filled to the brim by our yarn florists, these bouquets are curated specially for roses - a safe choice, right? Wrong! A few days pass, and the roses are already a project in mind with options for knitters AND crocheters - this way, your loved one (or you, we don’t judge!) can get that beautiful arrangement and make something out of it to wear time and time again!

But what about the chocolates, you ask? Well, have no fear, Jimmy Beans is here! In our newest bouquet, the Coffee and Chocolate Valentine’s Bouquet, you get the whole package PLUS a gourmet cookie dipped in milk chocolate and organic Jimmy Beans Wool coffee! This particular gift is perfect for all sorts of makers out there with a pattern included for both knitters and crocheters. With this in mind, please note that this kit doesn’t come with a crochet hook or knitting needles.

Small, Sweet, and (almost) good enough to eat, these little guys pack a punch! This set comes in a romantic palette of pinks and purples and fits into anyone’s stash! Both sides of these mini zips are magnetic, which is basically like, the best thing ever when you have a ton of tiny stitch markers and darning needles!
