Valentine's Day Heart Themed Outfits, Decor and Kids Toys from Southeast Michigan Stores

This February, give your little loves one of these delightful products we picked up around Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties

Looking for a little extra to show your affection? Metro Parent's roundup of Valentine's Day-worthy goodies is here to help! We bounced around to everyone from the chains (Pottery Barn Kids, JCPenney, Janie and Jack) to the indies (Adventures in Toys in Birmingham, Yellow Door Art Market in Berkley) and found some real gems – from table decor and a darling teddy bear to adorable jeans, onesies and tulle skirts. This stuff sure made our hearts go pitter-patter!

Click through the gallery and see what catches your fancy. Each has a link to the local shop where we found it. All merch is current as of early February 2013, but we suggest calling ahead to see if shops still have the item, just in case (if not, in most cases, we've included the link to where you can buy it online).

 

Boy Valentine's Day Plates by Pottery Barn Kids

With a decidedly retro tilt, these boy-geared valentine plates are, indeed, inspired by actual vintage be-mine cards from the '60s. They're 9 inches in diameter, totally washable and cost $12 for a pair (or about $6.50 each). The girl's valentine plates are just as stunning and cost the same.

Buy it at Pottery Barn Kids at Somerset Collection, 2800 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy; 248-643-0172

 

Valentine's Day Table Runner by Pottery Barn Kids

We happened to spot this darling number at the PBK over at Somerset Collection (it's no longer available online – so give them a call!). Festooned with appliqued hearts and fun-looking word "LOVE," this table decor is made of "pure cotton canvas," is machine washable and runs about $34.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Print Panel

A perfect pick for any child's room, this lovely little print, mounted on wood, says, "Twinkle twinkle little star ... do you know how loved you are?" It's $35 at the Yellow Door Art Market in Berkley, Michigan.
