This Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking hearts, hearts, and more hearts are the way to go. I’ve never been a major Valentine’s Day fan as I think love – and hearts – should be spread around generously throughout the year, so considering this, I think it’s as good a time as any to share some lovely items here (yes, even though we haven’t even yet entered February).

I recently came across online market DLK, and I would love just about every item in my own home (even though the shop is definitely more targeted to items for kids and families). The product collection is so carefully curated, and the high-on-design items have the whole family in mind. While I featured a few of their organizational items earlier this month, I’d like to share more of what I’m liking from this shop.

I love all the personalization options that are out there in the marketplace. From bags to shoes to home decor items, there’s really no limit to what can be personalized with embroidered and printed initials and names. Here are five items that caught my attention this week from personalization expert Mark & Graham.
