What’s out there: Check out these Valentine’s Day items

Just in case it’s not a case of true love, consider the messages on these fun, heart-shaped boxes of Whitman Sampler chocolates at Target. Plus, if your heart isn’t invested in the relationship, neither is your wallet: Each is $2.84. These are from the Fairview Heights store.

While not exactly a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, these big bundles of pretty yard are from Red Heart and just $2.99 each at Here Today in Fairview Heights (by Marshall’s). If you know a knitter, this could be a nice surprise. You might get a warm winter scarf out of it, too.

Forget 50 shades of gray, check out the shades of red purses to accessorize your Valentine’ Day ensemble. Look for them at Here Today in Fairview Heights. Prices range from $4.99 to $29.99.
