Love Me Tender—Be Mine Valentine!

Reminding someone how much you love them is the ultimate goal of a Happy Valentine’s Day. So instead of the simple gift guide, we are bringing it all around to share more thoughtful options and ideas—classic keepers, something different, and some at-home coziness that will have them feel all the warm and fuzzies for more than just a day!

Set the stage for Valentine’s Day because love isn’t dead and real romance is still going strong with the classics—flowers, a cute card, sweet treats, wine, and a gift or three!

In Bloom can create the ultimate classic dozen red roses with a pop, or something delicately elegant in your sweetie’s favorite colors or flowers!

Find the perfect card to pair with those flowers at Tiramisu Paperie — this is where you can make your sweetie melt, make them laugh, or go wild and unleash your sass!

Next up—treat your sweetie to something that is as pretty for the eyes as it is delectable! Pizzelle’s Confections is bringing the sexy back to chocolate with Sexyback—salted caramel in dark chocolate; and Kickstart My Heart—dark chocolate ganache with balsamic reduction and strawberry pate de fruit in a dark chocolate shell. They also have an assorted box of 24 with some of their favorites!

Variety is the spice of life so we have more ideas! How about a dozen chocolate-dripped strawberries? Or a gorgeous dessert box with a mix of tasty delights like sugar cookies, chocolate-dipped strawberries, fudge, macarons, and marshmallows from Mason Dixon Bakery and Bistro!

Perfectly paired wine or some bubbly are a plus for romance too! Domaine South and Petit Bijou have been hosting some fabulous wine tastings recently (put that on your to-do list too if you haven’t gone) and right now they have a 70 year old-vine Riesling—2016 Immich-Batterieberg “Jour Fixe!” Ask the experts there for their favorite red, white, sweet, dry—they will not disappoint!

Bring on the comfy cozy with some gift ideas from The Cottage Collective! Who doesn’t love relaxing at home? For her—how about these elegant bamboo pajamas? Each classic buttery soft silhouette is perfect for sleeping and lounging! For him—we suggest adding this Ukrainian Chess Set to his lounge. Every piece is trimmed in detailing making this a classic piece to enjoy for years.

We have to share a little pampering for our honeys too! Stach & Co. has gift sets from Jack Black Body and Saxx pajamas for the guys and delightfully comfy PJ Harlow pajamas for the gals!

And speaking of pampering think about pampering each other with a couples massage at Hand & Stone in Huntsville or Madison or an overnight spa getaway at The Soak House & Soapery because sometimes a day just isn’t long enough. With the stresses of the everyday treating each other to a relax and refresh cannot be understated!

We hope that this gives you some great ideas for creating that utterly memorable Valentine’s Day. Love them tender, pamper, dote, and show your sweetie some love this February 14th!
