In the name of Valentine’s Day and home furnishings that bring out our innermost emotions, our favorite home goods retailers invites its supporters to dig deep and share some public sentiments with the ones they love. Throughout the day, IKEA will post super fun Valentine’s Day messages to its Facebook and Instagram pages, and followers are encouraged to “share how they feel.” But the best thing about these social media sentiments is the delightfully fitting decor-themed twist.

Instead of dropping a simple “I love you” to that special someone, the goal is to come up with a message that’s inspired by your favorite IKEA product.

For instance, if you get just as excited at the sight of your sweetie as you do when you spot a ton of those ah-mazing $1 items at IKEA, let ’em know! Maybe something along the lines of, “Love is in the picture,” inspired by this 99¢ Tolsby picture frame. If you’re a dramatic lover whose home resembles an urban jungle thanks to the overwhelming presence of IKEA house plants, let your significant other know how much they mean to you with a super mushy message like, “I can’t breathe without you.”

So, you’re probably thinking “Furniture…and feelings?” Sounds like an unlikely pairing, but then again, even psychologists agree that IKEA can have a major affect on relationships, proving that expressing your love in terms of home goods is a *totally* natural thing to do. Just think about how much you love your favorite IKEA products and the person or people who mean the most to you. And if you still don’t find yourself posting endless sappy soliloquies on IKEA’s page, check out their Facebook and Instagram for some of their original heartfelt posts for inspiration. Just to be sure to keep a HÄREN towel on hand in case the messages move you to tears.
