How do I love thee? Let me shop the ways
It’s that time of year again. Your loved one is expecting a special romantic treat and so are you. Turns out neither of you is in the market for a new pair of socks. As experts in online retail, we’ve created a handy gift guide to make this process as painless as possible. If we’ve done our job right, there may even be some pleasure in it for you. For your convenience, we’ve divided our list into three categories: Delectables, Desirables, and Unmentionables. Webgility’s 2016 #ValentinesDay #GiftGuide. How do I love thee? Let me #shop the ways. #Topgifts Click To Tweet
Chocolate Apricot Treasures, $25.75, BRFarms.com. If your sweetheart also likes a sweet tart, think outside of the typical chocolate box with dried apricots. This lovely collection includes the top-of-the-line dried Blenheim apricots, royal medallion, completely drenched in delicious milk, white, and dark chocolate from quality purveyor Guittard. Just between us, a little natural fiber never hurt anyone’s mood either.
And how better to honor a long-term relationship than to support a long-term family owned company like B & R Farms. These folks have been growing and drying Blenheim apricots on their ranch in California since 1929. It warms our heart knowing that old-school brick and mortar and wholesale businesses can find a happy home in online sales.
Lucite Colorful Pretzel Tray, $35, TheCandyStoreOnline.com. For the realists out there, salty and sweet is the yin and yang of a well-balanced relationship. This festive gift of dipped pretzels has something for everyone—rainbow chocolate chips, metallic sprinkles, coconut, sequin confetti, pink seeds—so you’ll be a hero for serving up a party on a lucite tray.
Let it be known, these pretzels are just one of hundreds of fun, sweet selections from The Candy Store. Their impressive dried fruit, sugar-free, and chocolate selections pretty much cover any craving you can come up with. And if you’re in the market for kosher treats, make this your first stop. Mazel.
JK Gift Box Tower, Six Jar Gift Set, $84, JKChocoate.com. For those special times when you want to clonk someone you love over the head with chocolate, this should be your weapon of choice. Pick from several flavors of chocolate sauce (Caramel Sea Salt, please) and Microchip Cookies (we’ll take Six Spice Gingersnaps) to create a tower of goodness to suit any sweet tooth.
What the heck is a Microchip Cookie, you ask? From what we can tell, they’re tiny nuggets of classic cookie recipes, borne out of the need for two enterprising moms to produce large amounts of teacher gifts for the eight kids between them. Since all of JK Chocolate’s products are made for gifting, you better believe they have festive packaging for every special day of the year.
Longevity Bliss Heart Bar, $9.95, use promo code webgility for 15% off online orders through 2/15/16, SacredChocolate.com. Giving this delicious treat is an adorable way to tell your beloved “I want you to stick around for a long time.” Packed with a combination of scientifically proven anti-aging ingredients and magical make-believe (hand-wrapped with love by Marin County Oompa Loompas), this chocolate is a must-have for anyone who needs both love and laughter this Valentine’s Day.
We’re totally sold on this company just based on the unbridled enthusiasm of its founders, whose videos do not disappoint. Apparently Sacred Steve spent a year on the mathematical design of this custom heart-shaped bar, resulting in a 3D sacred surface geometry: A plane, an ellipse, and a golden spiral, or logarithmic spiral growing at the rate of the golden ratio. Totally kookie—we’re in.
Sterling Silver Engravable Heart Shaped Locket, $61, use promo code SWEETIE25 for 25% off any item through 2/14/16, SilverMineGifts.com. There’s nothing more romantic than a classic silver locket engraved to your beloved and made complete with photos of the two of you inside. And because your love will last forever, this necklace has a lifetime guarantee from the manufacturer.
Silver Mine Gifts is a family owned and operated company that does not outsource any of their engraving, polishing, or shipping. It warms the heart knowing that the family is handling your order from start to finish. We also love that their goal is to be the best at what they do, not the biggest.
The Cufflink with Koa Wood Inlay, $149.99, KoaWoodRings.com. Remember that time in Hawaii … or how you’ve always wanted to plan a trip together to Hawaii? This set of cufflinks covers it all. Elegantly designed with brilliant titanium, Hawaiian Koa wood inlay, and a spring-loaded whale tail-style foot, this beautiful set is both romantic and practical.
Since 2004, Komo Koa has been combining two of nature’s finest materials: Hawaiian Koa wood, traditionally used by ancient Hawaiians to make some of the first surfboards; and titanium, one of the earth’s most abundant eco-friendly metals. The resulting wood jewelry is extremely light, comfortable, non-allergenic, eco-friendly and water resistant. We think Komo Koa’s Hawaiian Koa wood jewelry is the perfect statement of your affection for Hawai’i and each other.
His and Hers Matching Novelty Sets, starting at $19.99, PlanetLingerie.com. For those in true need of “couples therapy,” these packaged sexy lingerie ensembles will bring creativity and humor into to the bedroom. Best sellers are Almost Commando, Jungle Love, and Black Tie Optional, but don’t overlook the aptly named fishnet selection, Catch of the Day. Thank goodness, all of these playful outfits are available in one size fits most.
PlanetLingerie.com is best for individual sales, but if you’re looking for bulk lingerie—and who isn’t?—consider their sister company, LingerieMart.com. Their wholesale collections are not to be believed, for example The Stripper Lingerie Package could make Valentine’s Day last for a back-breaking 50 nights.
Aubade Boite a Desir Magnet Set, $139, LingerieParadisUSA.com. Costume lingerie not her thing? Consider an investment gift, one that will never go out of style and yet take years off of your life. Billed “as a whole lot of sexy packaged in a small box,” this beautiful set includes bra, panties, leg straps, and garter belt.
This tasteful retailer carries basic bras, beautiful lingerie sets, sleepwear, loungewear, bridal, shapewear, and all the accessories you need. Your favorite brands are at Lingerie Paradis, too: Prima Donna, Marie Jo, Simone Perele, Cosabella, Mimi Holliday, and much more.
L’Agent Grace Playsuit, $198, ShopFortyWinks.com. So many pretty things, so little time. If you’re going for the efficiency of a one-piece purchase, this little number covers lots of territory. And what woman wouldn’t want a new playsuit for goodness sake?
Forty Winks is dedicated to the idea that beauty and luxury can effortlessly blend with everyday practicality. Amen to that. By catering to different shapes, sizes, and styles, they’ve thoughtfully handpicked lingerie and loungewear from designers across the globe.
