Valentine's Décor

The online world is brimming with Valentine's-related things, from prints and tins to tea cosies and cushions!

Here's a look at what is on offer at three fantastic online stores that provide everything you need to decorate your pad for Valentine's Day.

Bold & Noble

What they sell: Beautiful hand-pulled screen prints. Each one comes in a choice of colours and is printed on 100% recycled card--so your wall art is environmentally friendly! Their prints fit into standard off-the-shelf frames, meaning you won't have the extra hassle or expense of having a special frame made for your print. 
Bold & Noble offers a wide selection of prints featuring animals, text, maps, mottos and more! I particularly love their Hedgerow and Birds A-Z prints. 
The web site provides several pictures of each print--both in and out of a frame, plus a detailed close-up. 
Bold & Noble also take commissions--their web site displays an impressive selection of work made for publication.

Pictured above: My Heart in Raspberry sorbet (also available in Duck egg blue), and Love in Poppy red (also in Candy pink). These prints are priced at £43 + P&P.

Rockett St George


What they sell: Fabulous and funky housewares! Rockett St George sells everything from the big (such as their Skull & Rose Tub Chair £545) to the small (I love the Coloured Cupcake Tea Light Holders, £14.99) to the teeny-tiny (check out their Lace Tape, £6.50). In short, Rockett St George provides everything you might possibly need for your home--and they make it kitschi, original and whimsical. I could easily devote an entire blog post to listing all the things I love on this site! 
Alongside the wallpaper, lighting, curtains, cushions, furniture and countless other knick-knacks, Rockett St George also sells a selection of jewellery, handbags, accessories and stationery--they even have their own Food Hall!
A company that clearly has its finger on the pulse, Rockett St George have put together a section on their web site devoted to Valentines Day, so you don't even have to trawl around for ideas.

Not On The High

What they sell: A better question would be 'what don't they sell'! Browse this site and you'll find a huge choice of housewares, womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, accessories, toys, games, cosmetics and gifts--this is a one-stop online shop that will satisfy all your needs (except for groceries!)
Like Rockett St George, Not On The High has a whole section of Valentine's gifts to help save you time finding the right thing for your special someone. 
The style of their products ranges from vintage to kitsch to modern and arty. Their bath & body products look absolutely divine whilst their brightly coloureed recycled paper heart bunting (£11) provides a greener way of setting some Valentine's atmosphere in even the mundanest of settings. 
Not On The Hight also offer some personalised goods, such as this handpainted love heart (£28)
Rather than being one big online store, everything on the site comes from one of about 1,600 small businesses supported by Not On The High

Pictured above: Heart bowl and nibble dish set, £33 (includes a bowl, 3 dip dishes & spoons plus a tray) and Gingham heart tea cosy, £30 (various colours).
