Fancy a romantic night in this Valentine's Day? If you're staying in and creating a romantic dinner setting, don't forget about the candles! They don't only give off a warm, cosy glow but they also double up as a thoughtful gift. Take a look at a few of our favourites.

You can't go wrong with a Jo Malone candle. Yes, they come with a hefty pricetag but for good reason - the scent travels around your entire home and it's a candle that will last for a long time. We think Velvet Rose & Oud is the ideal scent for Valentine's because it has romantic florals mixed with smokey wood notes – the perfect combo.
This is a candle has become an interiors icon in its own right! Designed by one of Britain's top designers, Bella Freud, the 'Loving' candle comes in striking red packaging and has a base of sandalwood, with amber crystals and top notes of tuberose. What could be more suited to Valentine's than that?
If you're after a scent that's going to fill the entire room and not cost the Earth then this pomegranate three-wick candle from Aldi is the answer. Because it has three wicks, it offers a burst of fragrance and a warm glow. It has an approximate burn time of 70 hours – wow!

Express your style by your choice of candles. This tattoo love design is definitely aimed at those that love quirky interiors. It's available in multiple colourways and comes in a 'Wild Bluebell' scent that is initially crisp and fresh but has base notes of white musk.
Because everybody loves the Moomins, right? This gorgeous candle features a wonderful illustration of soulmates Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden sharing some seasonal love. The outer surface of the candle does not melt away, meaning the light glows through the outer surface and can be used to house a tealight once the candle has burnt out. Why not match it with a cute Moomin wall print as a gift idea?
