‘Tis the season to shower those we love with Valentine’s Day gifts. Whether with a simple handmade card, a plate of decadent sweets, a colorful bunch of flowers, or even just a much-needed hug. Cheers to those who make life special.
But first, Champagne
Whether you are a prosecco admirer, a cava fanatic, or a Champagne devotee, you just can’t go wrong with a bottle of bubbly on Valentine’s Day. There truly is no better way to celebrate the one you love than with a pop, fizz, and clink! We love this Philippe Fontaine 2014 bottle of 100% Pinot Noir brut champagne. With hints of peaches and lychee fruit, this Champagne also has notes of buttered almonds. So if you’re feelin’ bubbly, this is the fizzy treat for ton amour.

Come on, you know you want to try this
Champagne is meant to be savored—and occasionally sabered. Rooted in 19th-century French tradition, the elegantly curved Champagne saber slashes through bottles with ease—without the added danger of a standard saber’s edges. So for the thrill-seeker in your life, we can’t think of a better way to indulge in your favorite bottle of bubbly.
The way to everyone’s heart is through their stomach
This mini Dutch oven is simply adorable. And just the perfect size for a lovingly made individual pot pie, cobbler or gratin. Featuring an artisanal hand-applied heart applique on a classic white background, the mini cocotte is crafted from premium stoneware to ensure food is cooked to perfection. So whatever you choose to make, we’re thinking breakfast in bed sounds like the perfect way to start your Valentine’s Day.

Don’t forget the melted butter
Prized for its rich flavor and succulent texture, Maine lobster served with drawn butter is just about as decadent as decadent gets.
