Gifts for Your Valentine

A dozen presents for everyone you love—including your pup

Salmon Quince Branches

Blooming branches are a beautiful alternative to standard roses because they flower for more than two weeks and bring the beauty of spring inside a little early. Just remember that these beauties arrive before they flower, so give them a day or two to do their thing. $58;

La Vie en Rose Gift Box

If you’re going to give something sweet, this trio of confections (tea, truffles, and chocolate hearts) from Maison Bouissier in Paris is a beautiful way to do it. The tins they come in are gifts in their own right. $80;

Olympia Provisions Salami Bouquet

Do not laugh at this idea. It’s delightful in person and made me crack up when I opened it, because I wish I’d thought of a meat bouquet. And aside from being clever, it’s legit: all from the artisans at Olympia Provisions, from Chorizo Rioja to Loukanika, and all cheese-board ready. $85 for six;

Mirth Caftans Robe

The women behind this Texas-based line create beautiful feminine fabrics, and this cotton robe emblazoned with a tumbling feather pattern will make someone very happy. $160;

Rebecca de Ravenel Cora Heart Earrings

Have a little fun with the holiday with a playful pair of heart earrings by Bahamian designer Rebecca de Ravenel. $250;

Lolo Upland Briar Pants

Our editor-in-chief, Dave DiBenedetto, discovered these on a recent quail hunt. “A couple of fellows were raving about these pants because they were comfortable, durable, had ample pocket space and you could wear them into town without looking like you were looking for a lost bird dog.” $269;

Here Comes the Sun Hyacinth and Vase

When I saw this combination of container and flowers, I loved that it was really two gifts in one. The hyacinths arrive in tight buds and take days and days to even begin to wilt, and they fill a room with their scent. So it’s pretty perfect all around. $48 for both;

Ratio Eight Coffee Maker

A love note to pour-over coffee nerds and design geeks in one. $595;

Tubtrugs Garden Buckets

My husband specifically requested these for Valentine’s Day after spotting them in use on the British garden show Monty Don. Because they’re flexible, lightweight, and stackable, they come in handy in about a million ways outside. $17 each;

Magnifying Glass & Letter Opener Set

What better way to open and read a letter, or better yet, an old-fashioned love letter? $290;

Rowdy Collar and Dog Leash

Every color of the rainbow is woven into this handmade collar ($72; and leash ($86; for the canine love of your life.

Red Heart Cards

A handwritten Valentine is always appreciated. $7 for set of 20;
