A Dozen Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas in D.C.

Each one has rhyme and reason

v-day gift guide!

Though you’ve less than a fortnight, there is plenty of time
To shop local for gifts that say, “Will you be mine?”

Like a fresh Acne Studios sweatshirt to flatter your fellow;
Add high-waisted knickers (for you) in bright yellow.

Spoil your sis, son, or niece with a lightbulb that grows
Spend the eve over Asian street food, girlfriends in tow. 

Now map a lovers’ escape packed so full of bliss,
You must prep with a minty refresher prekiss.

(’Cause it’s been long enough. Steel yourself for three words
With a locket, a pillow, or a heart made of boards.)

Pack this overnight tote — it’s exclusive to Mutiny.
Pick a grand dame address so discreet, there’s no scrutiny.

Book a room with a view, bubbles, breakfast in bed.
Or stay home with chocolaty beans. Grind your heart out instead.

And remember — true love’s never been about money: 
At least snag a card from Amanda and write to your honey

bees knees!
