When I was in grade school, Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays. We’d spend the afternoon cutting out hearts and pasting them to white paper doilies to make valentines. Then we’d gorge ourselves on Sweethearts and heart-shaped Red Hots and red fruit punch. Life was good.
So it should come as no surprise I’m still a sucker for the holiday after all these years. Here’s a collection of gifts that are perfect for your Valentine (or yourself)!
A pair of vintage lead type from an actual printing press hang from this necklace. Perfect for one of your initials and the initials of a loved one!

This tiny gift from the World’s Smallest Postal Service comes enclosed with the message “You are as Cute as a Button”. A tiny vintage button completes the package.

A heart-shaped clip with a birdcage veil is vintage kitsch and glamour all rolled up into one. And a purple leather paperweight instantly prettifies any desk.
