Heartstrings & Shoestrings

From Miette

We have to admit- we're total suckers for the fun, festive, silly romance of Valentine's Day. It doesn't have to be serious grown-up romance: pink & red & sparkly & heart-shaped is way more fun, and can be obtained on the cheap.
Presenting, our very first "$5 & Under" Valentine's Gift Guide!

It's just not Valentine's day without little chocolate hearts. Really, just one of these would make an adorable gift. Who could resist? Pictured above is $4.95-worth of milk, dark, and gianduja-filled hearts, if you feel like going all-out.

Gianduja Hearts $0.75
Ferry Building, Octavia

Milk & Dark Hearts $0.30

From Miette

Red! Hot! Hearts! One of our favorite customers saw these & was like, "They still make these? I feel like I should send them a thank-you note!". Totally. They're teeny, hot, spicy, & classic. The bags in the photo are $3 for the larger, & $1 for the smaller. That's old-school value.

Red Hot Hearts, $1-$3

From Miette

Shaun of Au Coeur makes perfect dark chocolate-covered caramels. Just perfect. They usually come in an elegant box of 9, but for Valentine's Day he's created these darling little boxes with 2 caramel hearts. Still elegant, still perfect, only $5.

Au Coeur Caramel Hearts $5

From Miette

We just got a fresh batch of jelly beans in, and the pinks & reds are out of control! Cotton candy, bubblegum, pomegranate, sour cherry, raspberry, strawberry cheesecake, & cinnamon are just some of your festively-hued options. We make $5 bags & $1 bags, shown above, but you can buy as much or as little as your heart (or sweetheart) desires.

Jelly Beans $10/lb
