Valentine's Day is looming and as lockdown dictates that we can't dine out, or physically see friends or family unless we're in a bubble, lots of us are looking for creative ways to make 14th February extra special at home this year.

In fact Etsy has revealed that shoppers are opting for at-home mixology kits to spice up their date night this year, with a whopping 1,183% increase in searches for cocktail DIY kits.

Searches for baking, cooking and other food-related DIY kits have also increased by 165%. These fun and easy-to-use kits contain everything you need to whip up a treat - making a great activity for couples - or the whole family - to get involved in.

Etsy has also seen a 117% increase in searches for Valentine's Day decor, with popular options including garlands, banners and floral wreaths.

It would also appear that in the wake of the pandemic, shoppers are seeking out meaningful gifts that reflect their special relationships - from a best friend, to their beloved pet.

Personalised jewellery remains a hit, with a 45% increase in searches on Etsy for zodiac necklaces and a 440% increase in searches for birth flower jewellery.

Wellness gifts have also remained popular, as shoppers seek out ways to step away from their screens, relax, and reset for the year ahead. There's been a 48% increase in searches for notebooks, journals, or diaries, and a 163% increase in searches for bath bombs or bath salts.
