Regular old life is like a box of chocolates, so on Valentine’s Day, give them anything but.
Amour Is More
You’re in love, literally. If the fluoro Elasticco heart posters ($49 each) don’t get your point across, say exactly what you mean with mix-and-match Jennifer Meyer word studs ($275 each) in kiss, love, you, and me or a cup of Sweet Love Kusmi tea ($18).
Shack up at Rancho Pescadero (starting at $185 per night). With an itinerary of whale-watching from bed, poolside cerveza and guacamole, and kicking it on Todos Santos’s beach, he can toss everything he needs inside the rugged Altadena Works rucksack ($235).
Rise and Shine
A wake-up-and-smell-the-roses pillowcase set ($34) provides the perfect backdrop for breakfast in bed. Blackberry Farm’s breakfast kit ($95) comes packed with necessities such as griddle cake mix, apple butter, ham, and coffee. Score extra points with a heart-shaped egg fry ring ($15).
Manly men need flair, too, like an Apolis linen pocket square ($42), Tusk Cobra bracelet ($207) by Dess Homme (the new gentlemen’s line from Made Her Think), and Mister Freedom Bourgeron Biribi jacket ($250) in Ball and Chain.
For old-world glamour, tap Des Kohan’s vintage selection ($65-$85) of designer decor and jewelry, like gold bangles from the ’20s and ’40s. Take a less subtle approach with exotic floral Joya FvsS No. 1 perfume ($28-$112) or a Faire Frou Frou giant powder puff ($63-$225) made to order by a burlesque queen.
