German discount superstore Aldi has some truly stellar home decor and storage finds, like this ingenious fridge colander and this reusable glass vase filled with tulips. However, the budget grocer has outdone itself with the latest release hitting stores this Valentine’s Day — just in time for your celebration!

Inspired by the faux food decor trend, Aldi is selling the Huntington Home reusable bread pan candle for just $3.99 starting February 14. Measuring at about 6 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 2.5 inches high, the candle comes in four colors and scents including key lime pie (green), iced lemon bread (yellow), coffee and walnut cake (red), and raspberry streusel (pink). While the bread pan candle itself is an adorable decor piece for your home, once the wax is gone, the pan is totally reusable and even food-safe. Just give it a good clean (it’s dishwasher-safe!) and you can use it for baking, decor, or storage.

If you’re looking for a chic storage gem, the mini pan can be used to store fruits on the counter like avocados and lemons, or as a berry bowl for the fridge. You can also fill these with nuts, candy, or even dip to lay out when you’re hosting, and they’d make for cute movie-night snack bowls, too! If you’re looking for more of a decorative moment, DIY your own centerpiece with faux greenery or flowers, seashells, or marbles. It’d also make an excellent jewelry tray.
