Want to avoid the bright-red, disposable stuff in the "seasonal" aisle at your local drug store? We've found an unexpected source for sweet, inexpensive Valentine's Day kitchen gear that'll help set the mood: H&M. The Swedish retailer has long been a go-to for fast fashion, but the home section is also a great spot for on-trend deals that won't break the bank.
Here are 10 buys that all ring in at $10 or less.
- Textured Bowl, $10: Millennial pink isn't going anywhere, so your Valentine can keep this on the table long after February 14 passes.
- Jacquard-Patterned Hand Towel, $6: Get this towel and even doing dishes can feel a little bit more romantic on V-Day.
- Metal Tea Light Holder, $6: A duo (or trio) of these make for an easy, no-fuss centerpiece that also sets the mood.
- Porcelain Cup, $10: This cup is perfect for coffee in case you and your valentine would rather celebrate over breakfast (or brunch).
- Texture-Patterned Plate, $5: Make a heart-shaped pizza and serve yourself some slices on this textured plate.
- Small Glass Vase, $4: Not getting a giant bouquet of long-stemmed roses? Who cares! You just need a single bud to fill this cute little vase.
- 4-Pack Coasters, $2: Because getting rings as jewelry is one thing, but getting water stain rings on your coffee table is totally different.
- Small Metal Tea Light Holder, $3: Repurpose this tea light holder as a bowl for small, wrapped candies.
- Oven Mitt, $10: This oven mitt features a good motto for Valentine's Day ... and every time you step into the kitchen.
- Small Porcelain Plate, $3: Get this for the person in your house who usually has to do the dishes. (It's okay if that person is you!) It can hold rings during cleaning sessions.
