Happy Valentine’s day, everyone. In honor of this lovey dovey day, here are six wonderfully awesome prints (all from Etsy) that say, “I love you” without all the flowers and chocolates and flying babies with projectile weapons. Enjoy.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake - By Jan Skácelík

It’s probably bad luck for me to start talking about spring, but I’m willing to chance it. This year, I’ve decided, is finally going to be the year that I grow a little garden on the balcony of my apartment. And what better way to water my spectacularly luscious garden (I’ll settle for “sort of living garden,” though) than with one of these Eco Watering Can Bottle Adaptor from The Balcony Gardener. The little spout/handle can screw onto a variety of different bottles, transforming them into funky, eco-friendly watering cans.



Buy one from The Balcony Gardner for £13.50.

Some of you may remember me saying that I’m a huge fan of Breaking Bad. Well I was really excited when I came across this series of Breaking Bad paper dolls made by Jackson, Mississippi-based illustrator Kyle Hilton. The little accessories that come with each “doll” are what make these great…so many little references to somewhat esoteric moments from the show.

And if you like these (or if you’re not into Breaking Bad), then I suggest checking out Kyle’s website. He’s made paper dolls for a whole bunch of other popular shows (Arrested Development, It’s Always Sunny, Parks and Rec, and more…)

The Key Plate, designed by 2nd Shift, is a clever redesign of the traditional door frame strike plate. Just replace your current strike plate with the Key Plate and you’ve got a handy little spot to hang your keys or other random knick knacks that you often forget at home.



Visit 2nd Shift’s website for availability and ordering information.

Greatest iPhone case ever? I do believe so. This case, made by Schreer Delights, simulates the original Mac’s trademark vent grooves, SCSI port, ADB printer and modem ports as well as a speaker jack.


Buy it for $44.95

Wanna make a super cool (and geeky) Valentine’s Day card? Sure ya do. So head over to Mini-Eco for the full instructions (and printable templates!) to make this pixel-y popup card.



The Buddha Bowl is hands-down the coziest mug/bowl I’ve ever seen. If I had one, I think I would actually look forward to cold weather.



Buy it from Viva Terra for $29

Maybe I don’t get out enough, but the Turnkey Pencil Sharpener looks like so much fun. I want one!



Buy it from Animi Causa for $13.49
