I do not know why, but it is next to impossible to find Paperchase Products -- and images of them -- online. They have so many stocking-stuffer suitable gifts at Borders and at stationery stores, but for the life of me I can never locate them online. So, the heart chopsticks pictured above, although also lovely, are not the ones I originally wanted to post about. The ones I saw in Borders yesterday were by Paperchase, and they were pink and red plastic chopsticks that tapered down from a heart shape at the top to traditional chopsticks at the bottom. They were less than $5 for a nice boxed set.
Since going out to dinner on Valentine's Day does not always yield the hoped-for experience, I think having some heart chopsticks on hand and surprising your sweetie with Chinese take-out is a wonderful idea, especially if you put the food on your best dishes and make sure there is candlelight!
(The heart chopsticks above are also very nice; they're actually listed on the Las Vegas Wedding Favors website at $1.60, but that's at a minimum quantity of 50 pairs! So probably not the way to go, but you can still shop around online, or go to Borders in person, if you think that heart chopsticks are a good idea.)
What: Heart Chopsticks
