We’re all for handmade tokens of love on Valentine’s Day, but if you can’t make it yourself, then handcrafted mecca Etsy is most definitely the next best thing. We’ve handpicked our favourite Etsy delights that are sure to show your Valentine how much they are treasured.
Can Valentine’s Day outfits get cuter than this? I doubt it. Adorable heart knee pants for sweet babies from Antsy Pants will melt hearts all over the place on February 14. They cost less than $21, come in sizes from newborn to toddler, and shipping to Australia is available.
Let siblings or twins shout out how much they love you with these custom made Love tees from Twinzz shop. They come in short sleeve versions for Australian climes, and you can chose a grey or navy tee and pink hearts too if you prefer. Tees cost $55 a pair. Larger families can even share the love among four tees, ensuring L-O-V-E spells perfect!
Or, if your bundles of love happen to come in a smaller package, then let Twinzz fit them out in matching Lo-Ve onesies (above) for $53.
Heart-shaped crayons from Etsy’s Ivy Lane Designs are just like those retro love heart message lollies so beloved at the moment by my daughter – just without the potential for cavities and a trip to the dentist! They cost $10.30 and come in a set of five all packaged in a sweet little box perfect for gifting.
Anoint your daughter Queen of Hearts for the day with this delightful felt crown from The Merry Crown Society. Believe it or not, the felt used to make these pretty head toppers is made from recycled plastic bottles. So they’re environmentally conscience as well as adorable. The Queen of Hearts crown costs $23 plus post.
Let the stacks of love you have for your baby take a literal turn with these stacking rainbow heart blocks from Zooble. Stack them, whack them, sort them or simply use them to teach your toddler colours – the choice is yours. And at only $11, it’s any easy choice to make.
Put your love on the nursery wall with the bold Love You typography poster from The Motivated Type. A limited edition print, it costs $14 with free delivery. All that’s left is to choose your frame.
For something a little more laid back, you’re gonna love the luv ya sign (above). Handmade to order from Slippin Southern, it can be painted in any one of almost thirty colours. It costs $48.45 and shipping to Australia is available for less than $20. Gotta love that!

A little bit of love goes a long way with kids. So too for these little felt mice from Muddy Feet. They have a heart emblazoned on their teeny-tiny mouse chests, so there can be no mistaking their Valentine intentions. Each mouse comes in its own cardboard box, which can be decorated however you like. They cost $17 for one mouse or $45 for a set of three mice. Post to Australia is available.
We started with something adorable for the boys, so it’s fitting to finish with something equally aaaw-inspiring for the girls. Check this Valentine’s Day dress from Tutu Adorable Bowtique, Pretty as can be with its heart pattern and retro styling, it is available in sizes to fit from two years to seven years and costs $25 plus shipping.
And that, Babyologists, is how to spoil your Valentine, Etsy style.
