When hearts begin to appear all around in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, you can find them in almost any form: usually paper, chocolate, hard candy or plastic. But it’s not often that you come across individual hearts made from leather. It was love at first sight when our eyes met these leather heart-shaped zip pouches from Roots.

This year, we say forego giving cards to your sweethearts in favour of these. There are three colour options, so remember: white for a friend, pink for your crush and red for your love.

$18. Available at Roots, 220 Yonge Street, 416-593-9640
