I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day but there are plenty cute things out there to steal my heart. Here’s a round up of kawaii Valentines cards and gifts from indie artists, makers and small shops for your valentine, BFF or yourself.
Whatever your feelings about V-Day, Squishable (USA) have a plush for you! These mini Candy Hearts come in 8 cute emotions and if you buy 4, you’ll get 10% off.
For another take on candy hearts, PlanetBunnie (USA) has some super cute stickers and sheets including a sweet trio of bears.
You may recognise the polymer clay charms at KawaiiStudios (UK) – they’re handmade by Ruth of the xoxRufus Youtube channel. This Valentines cupcake charm is my favourite but there’s lots of fun acrylic jewellery too.
I’m getting a little tired of puns on cards but how can you resist this pair of pears! Hannahdoodle (UK) has a few love-themed cards to choose from including tea and breakfast.
If your life revolves around pets and gaming, Fuzzballs (UK) definitely have a card to suit you! Their Valentines range is full of cats, bunnies, junk food and general nerdery.
Doodlebug Designs (USA – stockists worldwide) have some really cute Valentine’s designs, available as stickers, washi tape, ephemera packs and more. This fabric would be so cute for the most 2021 of romantic gifts – a handmade face mask.
Noodoll (UK) have some special offers on pink plush and cute pairs like this Dino couple. Every order gets free limited edition stickers too.
I have to include the latest Dumpster Fire vinyl figure at 100% Soft (USA) as it’s pink and full of mean candy hearts! It sold out super fast but I hear there will be more released. Follow them on Instagram for updates. If you do miss out, you could try making your own by customising Twinkie Chan’s crochet pattern.
If you love Valentine’s Day we’ve got some crafts coming up, starting with an original DIY tomorrow.
