We're so tired of dime-a-dozen Valentine's Day tokens that scream last-minute run to the grocery store rather than offer a heartfelt display affection. We're taking the holiday back with these inspiring Pinterest Boards that get it right:
Saint-Valentin, by Régal Why we like it: Régal is a French magazine dedicated to "tous les plaisirs de la table" and it shows. We want to savour each and every last one of these 55 exquisite confections -- from heart-shaped roasted potatoes to the red apple/green heart.
My Shabby Valentine, by Lesta Why we like it: A wonderfully eclectic take on valentine; only 143 pins, but the soft palette of flowing dresses, girly accessories and big-screen romantic icons make us swoon.
Walking in the rain in Paris, by Edmund Fellinger Why we like it: What could be more romantic than wandering through Paris in the rain? These photos capture the city of lights at its loveliest.
Dried Roses, by Penny Clark
Pink, by Masja's Artwork Why we like it: Pink is the colour of unconditional love, and Masja Van Den Berg's board offers a wonderfully varied selection of pink wallpaper and fabric patterns. Few hearts here, but no matter -- from 18th-century French woven damasks to patterns by 1960s mod icon Lilly Pulitzer, we're pretty sure your own heart will be all aflutter.
Love Love Love, by Michiko M Why we like it: The best gift your valentine can receive this holiday -- or any day of the week -- doesn't cost a cent: a kiss, a hug, a laugh, a stolen moment together. Michiko M's photo board captures just such simple displays of affection through different kinds of love and moods that colour intimate relationships over time.
Valentine Street Art, by Elizabeth Crombie Why we like it: Love is just around the corner in this fantastic collection of street art showcasing matters of the heart. There are only 20 pins, but they are powerful.
Hearts, by Amy Eshelman Why we like it: Speaking of love where you least expect it, this board's collection of antique hearts -- from maple sugar moulds to homestead pillows and vintage quilts is, quite simply, stunning.
Romantic Places, by Crystal Memmott Why we like it: We're not saying you have to spend a fortune to show your love, but if that was already the plan, these beautiful location shots from around the world are all the inspiration you need. We're partial to snuggling in an igloo under the Northern Lights and lying on a beach in Tahiti, but we're not picky.
Love is in the air..., by AniZet Designs Why we like it: Well, we created it! Christine's collection of all things heart-shaped is a charming mix of crafts, nature, baking and home decor. We're sure you'll leave with an idea or two of your own.
