2013 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Presents for more than just your sweetie

2013 valentine's day gift guide!

Don’t put all your conversation hearts in one basket. Spread the love with gifts to celebrate your whole tribe.

All’s Fare in Love and War
Sleep in knowing Craftsman and Wolves has you covered. Its Morning After Box ($50) stashes sweets (lavender-vanilla shortbread cookies, jar of winter citrus and cocoa nib marmalade, pieces of strawberry-hibiscus pâte de fruit, plus a dark chocolate praline bar), a customizable message, and tea — all inside a red keepsake box.

Shacking Up
Surprise your roommate with a Ferry Plaza Farmers Market Chef Basket ($27-$38), overflowing with Starbelly chef Adam Timney’s haul of locally sourced ingredients (think Hamada, County Line, Iacopi, and Prather Ranch), which makes farm-fresh meals for two to three. All recipes are gluten free and can be made vegan.

Rock Solid
Soothe your suddenly single little sister with baubles not of the blue box variety. Aoko Su’s raw oversize pyrite posts ($98, available by special order at Revolver) are the sort of natural wonders that help heal wounds.

Haute Chocolate
Leave the kisses for the kids and treat Mom to the most decadent box on the block. Ten Michelin-starred chefs (including Thomas Keller, Corey Lee, and Gary Danko) collaborate on one ultimate 28-piece artisan chocolate constellation, with all proceeds benefiting Share Our Strength.

Cookie Monsters
They left a batch for Santa; let Nana Joes return the favor. Treat little ones to a healthier version of the snack — six organic chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, plus Almond Bliss milk ($22). If they’re in SF, have them delivered to their door.

Heavy Petal
Watch your cubicle mate’s opinion of the 14th go from doom to bloom after gifting her with a Studio Choo bouquet ($60). The wild bunch comes with seasonal picks and textural additions like berries and feathers.

Pen Pals
Express long-distance friend love with more than just Instagram likes by putting your appreciation in fine print. From a BFF necklace design to a duo of love-locked lobsters, Dog and Pony’s show cards ($4 each) are cool, not cutesy, ways to show you care.

Throw Yourself a Bone
Take matters into your own hands with a little self-love in the form of Corey Egan’s spine cuff bracelet ($263) cast in bronze.

After all, you’re not made of stone.
