Now, we're not proposing you deck out your home in Valentine's Day banners and teddy bears, but there's definitely some fun to switching out a handful of everyday items with love-themed pieces come V-Day. These can range from candles to mugs, and they don't need to be tacky. (Unless that's what you're into, of course, in which case you have our blessing.) Below, nine Valentine's Day home pieces you won't be able to resist.

1. Keith Haring Red Running Heart Candle, $55

You, avoiding commitment, in candle form. But all jokes aside, this pop art candle is printed with the late Keith Haring's work, which happens to be very fitting for Valentine's Day.

2. Le Creuset Heart Cocotte, $150

This enameled, cast iron cocotte from Le Creuset shows your food the love it deserves.

3. Williams-Sonoma Valentine's Day Ceramic Measuring Spoons, $18.36

To ensure you won't forget to add the sunshine and kisses when baking Valentine's Day cupcakes.

4. Monique Lhuillier Heart Confetti Appetizer Plate (Set of Four), $48

These precious plates were inspired by one of bridal designer Monique Lhuillier's favorite gowns. How fitting.

5. Urban Outfitters Corduroy Heart Throw Pillow, $39

This heart pillow avoids tacky-town with its cool, '90s vibe.

6. Godinger Double Wall Glass Heart Mug, $25

If you're not drinking heart-shaped tea from this mug on Valentine's Day, then you're wrong.

7. Canvas Home Tinware Espresso Mug in Red, $7

Or if you don't want to add hearts or cupid into your life, this red mug is a festive way to ingest your morning caffeine, too.

8. Society6 Love Heart Pattern Art Print, $17.99

This sea-foam green print would look great hanging on your wall year-round, to be honest.

9. Sage and Clare Sierra Tea Towel in Blush, $19

We heart this festive tea towel.
