Fall for These Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

A heart-to-heart on thoughtful gifting

v-day gift guide!

Mama always said you should play by the rules. Follow her advice when picking presents for all your special someones.

Love Can Be Messy
That’s a good thing at The Clay Studio’s date night (February 13; $135 per couple). Swayze-loving sweethearts throw pottery on the wheel Ghost style and take breaks for champagne and chocolate.

The Way to His Heart
Personal Gourmet delivers a three-course Valentine’s Day feast ($79-$99) to your door. Choose from decadent options such as bacon-wrapped scallops, lobster tails, and pints of Little Baby’s Ice Cream. To order, call 610-420-4424.

Laughter Is the Best Medicine
No date? No matter. On February 14, Karen Gross’s “Valentine’s Mixtape” show at Puck should make you forget your solo status. Plan a girls’ night out and giggle at her bawdy songs and stories. Tickets ($20 in advance; $25, day of show) at ticketweb.com or at the door ($25).

There’s Nothing a Drink Can’t Fix
The W&P cocktail kit ($340) — part of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction’s Philadelphia Textile Collection — comes with tumblers, a muddler, and everything else you need to mix a beverage, all nestled in a canvas bag.

Don’t Neglect Your Friends
Best buddy weathering another breakup? Dry her tears with Occasionette’s King of Jeans tea towel ($14). And because your trips to the park have dwindled since you met the One, treat your pooch to a Found My Animal leash ($56) at Roots Inc.

Make Time for Romance
Stop by Art Star Gallery & Boutique for Laura George cards ($4.50) to tuck in his coat pocket. Create mood lighting with Farmhaus votive holders ($20), made of reclaimed from a church in southern New Jersey. When things get frisky, massage on Aromabliss oils ($21-$22); the ayurvedic formulas warm you in all the right places.

You can take it from there.
