Valentine’s Day Gifts to Warm Your Home and Your Heart
They say home is where the heart is, so ditch chocolates and roses this year and give your Valentine something to make home a little homier. Here are some ideas for putting romance into the kitchen, living room, and—of course—the bedroom. By Jessica Sidman

This chocolate-fondue pot from Williams-Sonoma, usually $29.99, is a steal at $9.99. A romantic way to share a rich indulgence, the porcelain pot and tea-light candle come with six stainless-steel fondue forks that can be used to dip strawberries, marshmallows, brownies, and more.

These heart-shaped sugar cubes ($14.99) from Sur la Table would make a cute gift for a coffee or tea drinker. They fit snugly on a cup’s rim and come in white, amber, and ebony.
Show your love for the planet—and your Valentine—by snuggling beneath an organic cotton blanket ($69 to $99) from West Elm. The cotton is grown without herbicides, pesticides, or other harmful chemicals, so you can feel warm and fuzzy inside and out. It comes in twin, full/queen, or king sizes and in three colors: sea spray, natural, and clay.
