The latest style to take over the internet — you know, another “-core” in the vein of cottagecore, and Barbiecore — is the coquette aesthetic. The gist? It’s all about indulging in things like frills, hyperfemininity, and romance. While a quick social media search of the term will show creator after creator adding ribbons to their hair and wearing lace clothing, the look has also been making an appearance in the home space — the kitchen, included.

As fun as those total kitchen makeovers are to watch, starting small and introducing a coquette accent piece here and there is a bit more realistic. That’s where Le Creuset comes in — and it doesn’t get more sweet than the iconic, editor-loved cookware brand’s Valentine’s collection, which is full of pastel, heart-shaped kitchen gear that you’ll want to use all year long. Allow me to point you toward an item that’ll give your kitchen some subtle coquette flair for less than $40: the Mini Heart Pinch Bowl Set.

What is the Mini Heart Pinch Bowl Set?

Already sold out in pink and red, this offering is bound to sell out soon, especially as Feb. 14 approaches. However, what I would argue to be the cutest option out of them all is still available: the multicolored set, which includes pink, sage, and white mini bowls. If you have a more minimalist vibe going on, however, there’s also an all-white set up for grabs. 

No matter which selection you make, these deserve to sit out on your counter all of the time — and not just because they look absolutely adorable, though that’s certainly reason enough. They’ll keep your spices, dips, condiments, or snacks all within easy reach. Despite their delicate appearance, they’re sturdy enough for everyday use, thanks to the high-quality stoneware and scratch-resistant glaze that Le Creuset is known for.

And, as if the deal wasn’t already sweet enough, the bowls will arrive in a gift box, so you can give it to your loved one right away (if you don’t want to keep it for yourself, that is). While you’re at it, there are a number of other giftable, under-$50 items in the Valentine’s Day collection that you can pair the bowl set with — just look at the heart-shaped mugs!

Though the coquette trend proves that girly, heart-shaped things have a place outside of Valentine’s Day, the occasion does present a fitting opportunity to treat yourself or someone else to this whimsical bowl set. Don’t wait too long to snatch it up, though, because it’s sure to go fast at its discounted price!
