Whether you have that special someone or not, these things will definitely get you giddy over the Valentine’s Day season. Spice up your life for that romantic evening or your lonely hearts soiree!
1. Sip with some sass
These Ophelia glasses speak to your inner elegant goddess. Bring out your romantic side without breaking the bank with a couple from Anthropologie.
2. Pops of pink without being cheesy
Bloomingdale’s fushia Pedra coasters by ANNA new york by RabLabs will add that pink to your life without shouting VALENTINE’S DAY to your all of your guests. Its the classy small touches that can upgrade your (hopefully not too obvious) IKEA furniture.
3. Love your kitchen
I love bringing the holiday spirit into every room, but hate anything that is a little too in your face “Valentine’s Day,” especially since most of my house guests are still living the single life. These towels from William Sonoma are perfect – adorable without being vomit-worthy. Drape on your stove handle bar for the complete look.
4. Beautify your bathroom
I’m not normally a fan of anything too “girly” but Valentine’s Day gives me a good excuse to embrace it for a little while. World Market is selling pretty rose petal soaps in a variety of colors. Put the pink or red ones in your bathroom to expand that festive feel throughout all of your rooms.
5. Kiss me, I’m caffeinated
Is an explanation really needed for this one? Target always has the cutest things.
How about don’t kiss me until I’m caffeinated?
6. Valentine’s Day Wine Bag with Chalkboard Label
The burlap look is everywhere, and this wine bag still looks chic without being fancy. The chalkboard label means you can display several bottles in the same bag – just mark each kind on the label. This is also a great way to disguise some of those cheaper wines (TJ’s 2 buck chuck anyone?).
7. Let love in
Bring a smile to your face each time you come into your home, or set the party tone from the very first moment with this Heart & Arrow Doormat.
8. A romantic tone for your desserts
Perfectly paired with their Valentine’s Day kitchen towel, the Williams Sonoma muffin pan with a “hand-painted fluted gold rim ensures beautiful oven-to-table presentation.” Splurge for the stoneware and even baking throughout.
9. Love Potion #9
Love potions and potion bottles have popped up as fun party decor for Halloween and Harry Potter themes, but I haven’t really seen them used for Valentine’s Day and I don’t get why. They’re LOVE POTIONS. You can even be super cliche and play the Love Potion #9 song in the background.
These love potion gift tags on Etsy would be great around favors or as a table centerpiece, wrapped around an assortment of colorful perfume bottles.
10. Most importantly – be your own valentine
Spoil yourself with Bed Bath & Beyond’s over the tub bath caddy. This thing lets you drink wine and read by candlelight, all while in the bubble bath.
