Heart-shaped things are especially in right now, and it’s not just because Valentine’s Day is coming up. It ties into the coquette aesthetic that’s been dominating social media over the past few months, which is an ultra-romantic style that features a ton of lace, pink, and (you guessed it) hearts. I don’t know about you, but coquette home decor videos have been popping up on my social media feed left and right, and I’m downright obsessed.

If there’s anything that all of those videos have taught me, it’s that there’s no such thing as too many hearts. You can (and should) add them to every area of your home — especially the kitchen. There’s no shortage of items to choose from: Take HomeGood’s adorable heart-shaped Champagne flutes, for instance, or this adorable knife block set from Paris Hilton’s cookware collection. One of my personal favorites, however, is Le Creuset’s entire Valentine’s Day line. They’re offering heart-shaped mugs, pinch bowls, and more must-have items, but right now, I’m giving these salt and pepper shakers major heart eyes.

What are the Heart Salt and Pepper Shakers?

This salt and pepper shaker set is the perfect way to introduce the romantic aesthetic to your kitchen. It’s a small touch, but it’ll still go a long way while they sit on the countertop or the dinner table. Whether you opt for the vibrant red, pastel purple, or neutral white, the whimsical set will certainly stand out. It has even more to offer than good looks, though — both pieces have an angled design, and the salt shaker offers one opening while the pepper shaker has three, allowing you to have more control while pouring. Its quality is at the high level you’d expect of any other Le Creuset piece, consisting of durable stoneware and wear-resistant glaze. The shakers are so high-quality, in fact, that you can even pop them into the dishwasher.

Other items in the Valentine’s collection, like the mini pinch bowls, have already sold out, so odds are that this set will be quick to go as the holiday approaches. Don’t wait to snag it as a gift for a loved one or as a treat to yourself!
