Anatomy of the Best Valentine's Day Gift Collection
Valentine’s Day flowers are a good start, but if you really want to delight your lady or your man. Check out our Stargazer White Collection. Why is this collection perfect for Valentine’s Day? I’m going to break it down for you in a step by step guide to an amazing Valentine’s gift.
Start with Flowers
First, we start with the flowers, in the Chinese language “Lily” means “forever in love.” Stargazer lilies exude passion, love and desire …this is what you’re going for right?
Our farm fresh Valentine’s Stargazer lilies come bursting out of the box, with big voluptuous buds. These lily stems can be kept long for an elegant spacious arrangement, or trimmed short for an intense burst of intoxicating color. Our lilies also come with small hand full of bear grass, to add, form, line and texture. We also include a little “how to” sheet that shows the best way to use this design element.
The very nature of flowers is that they open up over time, a first bud will spring open as they get a fresh stem cut and placed in a vase, but the remaining buds will pop open over days and even weeks (yes, farm fresh Valentine’s Day flowers really are different!). We include a tasteful galvanized French bucket style vase with the collection, so no matter where you are, you can enjoy the flowers.We understand that on the big day, you want to have your cake and eat it too. The other two elements in this Valentine’s Day Gift Collection achieve immediate gratification.
They say “Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker” …This gift collection has both. First the perfect chocolate for Valentine’s Day is a dark, single origin chocolate bar from Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate. It is no secret that chocolate is an aphrodisiac, and couple nibbles from this chocolate will really kick you Valentine’s into high gear. This bean-to-bar chocolate is sourced from the rich soil of Madagascar. The raw beans are shipped to Eureka, CA, and Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor go to work making the chocolate from scratch. We are not exaggerating when we say this chocolate is an intense and visceral experience, best shared with someone you love.
We might be stepping out of line by assuming that most women love a crisp glass of chardonnay, but so far we’ve found this to be true. Our 2014 Chardonnay just won a silver medal at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, so you can trust it is a nice bottle of wine. Our un-oaked chardonnay is light, with a floral nose and hints of tropical fruit flavors. It goes wonderfully with food, so pairing this wine with your Valentine’s Day dinner may be a great choice…if you can wait that long. Personally, I think chardonnay and chocolate are best enjoyed snuggled up by the fire, or maybe snuggled between the sheets!
Looking for a red wine, flowers and chocolate gift collection? Do not fear, we have this covered as well. We have many varietals for award winning wines as part of our collections, or you can simply build your own flower and wine collection.
Valentine’s Day is not a time to be shy, or coy. It is a time to show your special someone just how special they are. A gift collection with wine, hand-picked flowers, and chocolate will truly dazzle her this year.
Enjoy and Cheers to Love!
