Cocktail Pairing

Super gorgeous and tasty, this cocktail is a lovely, refreshing way to start the night.

Find the original recipe here.

Nest Fragrances Classic Grapefruit Candle

Citrusy, fun, and flirty. The Nest Fragrances Classic Grapefruit Candle is a nice way to set the mood if you want to light it up for your Valentine’s Day dinner service or open it during cocktail hour.

Price: $42

Appetizer Pairing

Pomegranate Goat Cheese Crostini

Super-rich, heavy foods are so 16th century. Move over Henry VIII, we’re keeping things light and simple with tart, juicy pomegranate seeds and a touch of goat cheese on fresh baguette. (Although, we’ll have anything Jonathan Rhys Myers is serving.)

Heart Bowl

We’re suckers for artisanal goods. And your Valentine will be putty in your hands for this bowl and its beautiful jewel-like pomegranate coloration. Just read this description: “In lamp-working (as in love) the heart's true form is created as the raw material is warmed over a flame, becoming soft to the touch.” Be still my heart.

Price: $98

Soup Pairing

French Onion Soup

There’s something just so rustic and inviting about this warm and silky classic. The perfectly crusty croûtes (aka fancy croutons)? The lightly salty Parmeggiano-Reggiano? The chef’s touch? Whatever it is, get close and share a perfect little bowl.

Photography

Rebecca Plotnick’s imagery of Paris is romantic, modern, architectural, and dreamy. Any of her photographs serve as a reminder of a perfect Valentine’s Day evening and also as something lovely to gaze upon. Plus, the gift of art is just plain thoughtful.

Price: from $30

Salad Pairing

Shaved Asparagus With Arugula and Parmesan 

This salad is effortless but its flavors are sophisticated. Just like the rest of your perfectly planned Valentine’s Day.

Beautiful Blooms

Flowers are lovely, no matter the occasion. But this one is extra special. Roses are fine. They’re fiiiine. But this orchid blend is a statement.

Price: $125

Main Pairing

Coq Au Vin

It’s getting serious now. The New York Times called this authentic French dish “succulent.” We think that’s a good direction to go at this time of the evening. There are tender parts, crispy bits -- everything good about delicious food. A little bit of prep, some simmering on the stove, and it’s ready for its moment.

Double Moon Bracelet

It takes two, no? This piece of moon jewelry lets you put a story behind the gift. Whether it signifies you and your love’s birthdays or two major relationship milestones, two beautiful lunar charms set in dramatic rose gold is an amazing way to demonstrate the feelings you have for your person.

Price: $140

Dessert Pairing

Riesling-Poached Peaches with Tarragon and Salted Sour Cream

This dessert is so pretty and is a clean finish to the evening. Rosy in color and elegant in presentation, this dish is sure to impress.

Plush Throw

Dinner’s over and you deserve some well-earned cuddles. What better way to end the night than to pour yourselves a nightcap and cozy up under this hug of a blanket with some conversation? *wink*

Price: $98
