Simple heart shape and smooth stainless steel, this looks like one of those feel good toys that would appeal to adults as well as kids. It’s aimed at little girls who believe in fairies I think, perhaps to emulate Tinkerbell in Peter Pan, but I could imagine it going down well with bigger girls too just as a beautiful toy.
There are no reviews that describe the sound of the chime, which makes it difficult to assess on sound appeal, but it’s definitely worth a try if you’re looking for a little gift to please a young daughter or niece, or a special stocking filler.

These are individually carved and painted to order. There is a huge range of options including larger wooden message hearts, which can have a romantic message of 6-8 words painted on. There is also a pretty range that would make fantastic wedding favours. They all come from UK site Country Hearts.

Cute heart shape, groovy colors, these hand-made ceramic buttons are irresistible. Don’t think of them just in terms of sewing and knitting. There’s so much more you can do with buttons this pretty!
How about stringing a few of them into a necklace?
Or sewing one into the center of textured hand-made paper for an individual Valentine’s Day card?
Giving them to the kids for Valentine’s Day crafts, or using them to make an unusual tie for a special package?
There are many more colors and designs to choose from and you can even commission your own bespoke buttons if you don’t find exactly what you want. They are hand made in the UK, shipped worldwide.
These heart buttons pictured cost GBP 1.20 each from The Queen of Buttons.
I love the simplicity of this little carved wooden box and its stylish red and black color scheme. It’s made from seasoned Linden wood in the Tatra mountains of Poland and carved and decorated in traditional style by artisans there.
Just under three inches across it is the perfect little treasure to give as a romantic gift with a little keepsake inside. The top swivels open to reveal a little round hollow just big enough to hold a ring, pendant, lucky charm or whatever takes your fancy.
Little girls would love these too, so it you want to surprise a dear daughter, granddaughter or niece on Valentine’s Day this would be just the thing.

I love the depth of colour in these gorgeous felt heart ornaments: purple, pink and red make for a richness that almost glows from teh picture..
