Cadeau du Coeur Coasters

These wooden coasters emblazoned with iconic South African images are the perfect place to rest your red wine glass this winter. Available from Cadeau du Coeur, they will protect your table tops and be a talking point – we love the cheeky little ostrich on one and it might be fun to quiz your guests about how many of the places they have visited from the list on another. Cadeau du Coeur is French for ‘gift from the heart’ and Stephanie Joubert decided this was the perfect name for her business. ‘I lived in France for four years and have always been in love with the French style,’ she explains. Her range of gifts features products from Bubinga, such as these coasters, ceramics from Urchin Art, wooden products from Goeters met Liefde and, a new trend setter, little bamboo piggie cutting boards and side plate toasties with engraved hearts made by a special friend and her husband, Michelle and Rhyno Von Schlicht. ‘All my gifts are chosen with care to portray the amazing talent we have in South Africa and how special our country is,’ she says. ‘Cadeau du Coeur is a mobile gift shop, so items are available from my home and from local markets such as the I heart Market in Durban. I deliver and gift wrap and I keep my Facebook page updated regularly. I am based in Durban, but also package and courier if you order something online,’ says Stephanie. For more information or to order the coasters, which retail for R100 for the set of four, contact Stephanie on stephhick7@gmail.com or find Cadeau du Coeur on Facebook.
