Just over a week until Valentine’s Day! I actually really like it, I agree with those that say it’s commercial but I still think it’s fun and I kind of enjoy going out and people watching all the couples who genuinely are out for the sake of it rather than because they actually like each other.
Moon and I don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day other than get each other cards and pop out for a nice meal so I find it a little odd that there are so many Valentine’s-themed gifts floating around at the moment. That being said, I’m a sucker for love hearts, commercialised love day or not. So here are my favourite picks of Val Day treats from Etsy, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these really but what better excuse than when I can make it adhere to a theme?
[Shop Miss Ella]
I love big statement acrylic necklaces but have been too covered up in scarves and coats to show any of my collection off.
I love this Peter Pan collar necklace, the stitching detail kills me!
[Back Bay Pottery]
Such adorable little bowls, I could definitely find room in my little flat for these and I love that they’re not too obvious too!
I’m hoping that my nails will be long enough by next week to do some cute nail art as it’s been quite a while since I last painted my nails. I’m not very trusting of nail stickers, mainly because my nails are kind of small, but these was are almost irresistible I love the colour combination.
[Twin Crafts Knit]
I’m a sucker for silly plushes and this kitty would make a great addition to my slightly embarrassingly large collection.
I’ve seen a few versions of similar sweaters on the high street and I don’t think this something I would actually pick to wear on a Valentine’s date, but I do think the heart patch details are cute and easy to get away with every day.
I do love a good pun and I’m finding all these love-based puns a bit much.
I’m actually secretly a little more excited for Pancake Day, but Valentine’s Day is one of my favourites too, even if it’s not a holiday at all and my Valentine isn’t so secret – speaking of which, I’ve still not managed to pick up my card for him, oops!
