Forget fancy restaurants or chic hotel getaways – Valentine’s Day 2021 will be a very different affair to what most of us are used to. But that doesn’t mean you can’t create a romantic haven in your own home.
In fact, celebrating at home can be even more meaningful – cooking a special meal, planning fun activities and decorating your home are wonderful ways to let your significant other know how much you care.
We’ve scoured the High Street in search of the best romantic decor for Valentine’s Day. Whether you prefer a low-key intimate ambience or full-on love hearts a-go-go, you’ll find something in our list to get you in the mood for love.
