Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day: Are You Ready?

Filed under: Gifts, Holidays — Tags: , , , , — michaeldelicio @ 9:38 PM

Not ready for Valentine’s Day?!?!  You  procrastinators can still stay out of the dog house!  Here’s how:

Start with a luxurious cashmere throw.  Any good department store will have them.  These are from Gracious Home. Combine that with a couple of Valentine’s Day classics, and you’ll be in good with your sweetheart!

I really hope you’re getting ready for Valentine’s Day.  You’re running out of time!

For the romantically committed, the Met Store has this reproduction of a 17th Century Marriage Box.  Laden with meaning, the engraved figures depict Trust, Hope, Prudence, Love and Tenderness. We girls love that stuff!!

A pair (of course!) of Love Bird Mugs would make a heart warming, and hand warming gift of affection. These are from Jane Jenni’s collection of Personality Mugs.  They’re all cute, and modern, and make great gifts.

Valentine’s Gift Idea of the Day:

Valentine’s Day falls in the the heart of the coldest winter. Give someone that “warm fuzzy” feeling…literally. Very sexy, sensual, and chic.

The larger one (60″ x 86″) would be great on a bed!  Now we’re talking!

11 Days Till Valentine’s!

Gift Idea of the Day:

Candles are of course traditionally romantic, therefore perfect for Valentine’s Day.  But these by Barrick are a little more than just that. They’re elegant, modern, sculptural.   Almost too good to burn.  But go ahead…Valentine’s Day only comes once a year!
