What, you may ask, are little girls made of? Who knows. But we know what we like when we see it.
What could be sweeter than a purrfect rescued kitty or pup from the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (12 Airport Boulevard, San Mateo; 650-340-8200)? Indulge her sweet tooth with burnt caramels designed by Creativity Explored for Recchiuti, featuring art by adults with special needs. Butter her up with Thalia baubles from new home decor gallery Sarlo (295 Kansas Street; 415-863-1001).
Heat things up with couples cooking classes organized by Parties That Cook (Sur la Table, 77 Maiden Lane; 415-732-7900). Pepper her pad with vintage barware and tabletop trimmings from Mignonne (1000 Jefferson Street, Oakland; 510-444-5288). Her skin will savor the 80 Acres body care collection culled from organic olive oil by McEvoy Ranch (Ferry Building, 1 Ferry Building; 415-291-7224).
Lift her up where she belongs with a helicopter tour over the bay, provided by Viator; end with lunch in Sausalito. Stay grounded with a donation in her honor to help stomp out global poverty at MicroPlace. Or sweep her off her feet with a frock, coat, or, really, anything from Filippa K (66 Kearny Street; 415-951-0210). Mention DailyCandy for 10 percent off everything December 2-15.
