Here are some of my favorite finds for handmade Valentine's Day gifts.
I like to feature new designers on my blog every time I do a "favorite finds" for handmade items, but I just love the work of this dynamic duo. And when I saw their new valentine inspired creations I couldn't help but add them to another favorite finds list! Cart before the horse is located in my hometown, Portland, Oregon. The owners and creators, Dylan and Jo, make contemporary folk art pieces that are completely charming and amazingly detailed. Each of their pieces, is entirely made by their own hands; individually sewn, stuffed, and painted. Check out their Etsy shop here
I just love these little hand-crocheted hearts from Etsy shop HoKiou. The red heart was hand-crocheted with threads of red cotton (features silver lurex threading throughout.). It is adorned with a silver arrow, on a silver chain. The green heart is custom made with your initials and is a steal at $13.00! Find them here.
Looking for sweets for your sweetie? Look no further than these adorable cookies from bbsweetslove on Etsy. You can even have personal messages written on your love letter cookies! You can't get much sweeter than that <3
J'adore ces! These pillow cases are so lovely. Perfect for someone searching for a non-traditional and neoteric valentines gift for a artist contemporary design lover. And fear not, you can order boy/girl, boy/boy or girl/girl combos of the pair. You can find these at Etsy by Jennidesmond
I don't want to make this about me but I think someone should buy me this locket. Why? Because I love lockets, sacred hearts and embroidery, so I kinda think it would be a crime if I did not own this....someday. I just love it so much!!! The shop Stella Saves the Day on Etsy has many more gorgeous items to chose from. But let me just say if you know a gal that likes lockets, hearts and embroidery this would be a sure-fire gift!
