I’ve always had a soft spot for sparklers – they bring out the child in us all, memories of the excitement of being outside in the dark on Bonfire night, writing in the air, the magic of the fizzing bright light. So I was very excited to discover these heart sparklers, adding even more romance to the sparkler scene!
They might be intended as wedding sparklers, but I think they’d be great for any romantic occasion – Valentine’s Day after dinner, to start off the fireworks perhaps!
Gold Heart Wedding Sparklers – Pack of 6costs $6.95 on Amazon. Or if you are buying lots of them as wedding sparklers get the big package, it’s much better value at $74.99 for 144: New – 144 Sparklers – #11 inch HEART Wedding Sparklers – Great Gold Sparkles for your special event.
Almost every serious cook lusts after Le Creuset casseroles, but generally speaking they’re a practical rather than a romantic gift… except when they’re heart-shaped! In this case it would be a wonderful anniversary, Valentine’s or Christmas gift for your beloved, and if you’re very lucky it might even be used to cook a romantic candlelit dinner for two!
This gorgeous pot combines the functionality of a true Le Creuset casserole, which is the best in oven to table cookware, with the whimsy of romance. At $159.95 from Amazon, the Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 2-Quart Heart Casserole, Redis a true proof of love and devotion!
Bright gaudy colours, endearing polka dot design, this glass heart platter would make a great Christmas gift for anyone who loves entertaining or just presenting food beautifully. It’s almost a shame to cover up the heart with food, so I can also see it taking pride of place on the coffee table, even with no snacks in sight.
Created by Lori Siebert, glass artist, the platter is made with layers of colored glass fused together for a stunning effect.
The Heart Rectangle Glass Fusion Platter by Lori Siebert currently costs $32.95 from Amazon and there is only one left, so get ahead with your Christmas gift list if you know someone who would love it!
I love the simplicity of this sterling silver ring. Just a delicate heart shape in polished silver that is the right size for a pinkie / little finger.
The finger size is 4.25 or H-1 for UK and Australia. The ring is Rhodium plated so it won’t tarnish.
A pretty and romantic Valentine’s gift if your beloved is a silver person, but also tempting to buy for yourself, as it is very affordable on Etsy at $17 from VaLa Jewellery.
Thanks to Jenny for pointing it out to me on our Red Velvet Heart Facebook page!
Bright colors, funky design and hearts, hearts, hearts! This teapot would make a fantastic centerpiece for any tea-table or dresser.
Some might collect it as a decorative piece, but it’s totally functional and even pours well!
Bold and beautiful, it is a classic Romero Britto ceramic piece with loads of whimsical details and would make a great gift for a loved one who collects ceramics, either for Christmas or for Valentine’s Day.
New Romero Britto Teapot Square Heart Ceramic Dolomite currently costs $46, down from $101.97 at Amazon.
I’ve loved these gorgeous glass hearts, ever since I first saw them. There’s something about the solid, smooth weight of glass in the hand, the brilliant colours and the fact that they’re hand-made and each one is different.
Artisan-made pieces usually aren’t cheap…. so I was stunned when I saw that this one is currently hugely discounted on Amazon. It’s advertised at $13.99 down from $111.00 at the moment, so if you’ve been longing for one, but have held off because of the price, now’s the time!
Or get ahead of yourself and buy your Valentine’s Day gift now! Mind you, I’d not say ‘No’ to this for a Christmas gift either!

If you’re looking for a gift that a teenage girl will treasure, how about this one-year diary with rich heart design bejeweled cover?
The gorgeous colors and design of the diary add warmth and importance to the secret thoughts and desires she might write inside its covers and two keys keep the contents private (note to moms – it’s not OK to keep the second key for yourself, however tempting!!).
It’s made by CR Gibson who produce quality stationery and measures 7 x 5 inches with dated pages, 2 days to a page. The diary matches this beaded heart notebook, so they could both be given as a set.
