Valentine's Day Gifts
As much as I like flowers, there’s something so nice about receiving gifts that will last long after the holiday or celebration has passed. For Valentine’s Day, I especially love the idea of a carefully curated box of goodies, made even more special by the care with which it is presented. With this in mind, I asked the lovely Amy Blessing (who expertly assembled the gorgeous array of boxes that we are currently offering in-store) for some of her tips and tricks. Here, her thoughts on everything from theme to materials, as well as a list of our boxes, available just in time for the holiday.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s a good time to start looking for the perfect gift…or dropping some subtle hints. Here, some of my favorites for giving and receiving this holiday, both traditional and a touch unexpected.
Though I don’t necessarily subscribe to all of the commercial notions of what Valentines Day “should” be, I love the spirit of the holiday, and how it can manifest itself – whether through words, actions, or the perfect gift. I’ve put together some of my favorite picks for the latter.
Nothing makes Valentine’s Day extra special like a piece of gorgeous jewelry. Because I am a lover of jewels, especially when they are well designed and interesting, I have made a point to make sure I absolutely adore every piece of jewelry sold in my store.
