Valentine’s Day is approaching, and if you’re the kind of person who celebrates it I guess you’ll be thinking about what special thing you can do for your significant other. Perhaps a romantic dinner, a special meal, a picnic, or a breakfast.

But have you ever considered preparing a Valentine’s Day brunch?

Today I give you 10 brunch recipes and 4 decoration ideas for Valentine’s Day in which hearts, naturally, feature highly. Just a little heads-up, I might have gone too far with so many hearts…

So I thought I’d do a bit of investigation and I’ve found some interesting, and fairly cheap utensils. And if you’re also missing a few heart-shaped cooking tools, here are some of the ones I found for less than €10 and that you could buy with a direct click on the picture:
