Finding a way to show love to your sweetheart can be very stressful at Valentine's Day, so why not forgo the chocolates or roses and create a romantic environment for the one you love?

Special decor touches of colour, texture and whimsy can bring heart-thumping feelings all year long.

Here are a few sexy yet personal homegoods that are sure to lift your love of everything decor:

Flicker of love
The Island Nights candle is one of the most sensually scented candles, boasting orchids, orange, musk and jasmine. Tip: the coral sleeve makes a fabulous bottle coaster when the candle is long gone, and the amethyst glass container would be stylish on a desk
as a pencil holder. $47at crabtreeevelyn.com.

A piece of me
Just a bit of body fluid, a kiss or fingerprint and look what you can give him? Your DNA makes personalized art. Go for bold and go big. Large art is a great way to give big impact to a small space, whether it be your lips or finger prints. Priced from $100 at canvaspop.com.

Luscious Lips
Is there anything that makes a statement more? I'd use this sexy sofa as a banquette by placing a stylish dining table at it. A sofa with such personality is the star of the room, other furnishings should be simpler in design and colour; a square-shaped chair in dark grey and modern square-shapes will make the sofa stand out even more. $1,500 includes delivery at www.sexyfurnishings.com.

Sexy Walls
Painting the wall behind a bed or sofa can add much needed pizzaz to an all neutral, boring room. Surprise your loved one with the gift of a focal wall this Valentine's Day. The perfect colour of love is Bon Nuit AF635 from Benjamin Moore Paints. This murky purple tone looks great with almost any colour; especially the popular chocolate browns and greys.

A glitter in your eye
Cool chrome and red acrylic droplets create a splashy light fixture for a foyer or over a dramatic dining table. Red means love. Hang it low (about four-five feet off the floor) over a
corner table for a modern focalpoint in the living room. $299 from Euphoria Chandelier, available at homedepot.ca.

Tech Treats
Treat him to the ultimate docking station for iFetish items. The BeoSound8 is the perfect blend of style and sound. Beware - one piece of B&O technology often leads to another, you may be creating a style-tech obsession for him. $,1090 at Bang & Olufsen, available at bang-olufsen.com.

Under The Tuscan Sun
Is she a home decor enthusiast? Treat her to an exclusive girls' week in Tuscany with designer and television personality Debbie Travis. She's guaranteed to come home with a million ideas to make the home more romantic. Remember, a trip for her is also a vacation for you, and you'll be the hero. From $4,700 (plus air).
