Heart-shaped cookies or chocolates can be a real treat in the month of love – and it's a chance to play around in the kitchen.

Invest in some heart-shaped molds or cookie-cutters and get baking! You can design all sorts of treats.

This design also shows us how easy it is to invest in a few heart-themed textiles, crockery and cutlery too, adding to the effect!

2. Heart-shaped coasters

When you're enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of coffee with your loved one, a few heart-shaped coasters could help set the mood. They're also really easy to make!

Once you have the material, you can get to work creating patterns or images with pens, crayons or even paint. Cut your coaster out in a heart-shape and there you have it. You'll also save your surfaces from stains!

If you have some old jars lying around, it's so easy to make your own candles:

1. Choose some old jars or glass cylinders

3. Put them in the oven on a low heat to warm them

4. Place a candle wick in the middle of the jar. You can buy them at any craft store!

5. Place wax flakes around your wick

6. Place your glass jars in hot water on the stove, allowing the wax to melt

7. Leave your jars to cool

8. Light your candles and enjoy the ambiance!

You can also use paper or origami to create your own colourful or romantic decor in your home. Use soft colours like red, pink and white to really introduce the Valentines theme.

As we can see in this design, an XO canvas really brings a sophisticated touch to the room, enhancing the entire interior design.
