Flowers, candles and glitzy items can definitely set the mood for Valentine's Day. For personalized gifts or decorations, local craft stores can provide a few ideas. The crafty mind can also come up with customized designs, such as using tea lights, organza cloth and rose petals to create romantic backdrops.
