It seems like it was just January, but Valentine’s Day is less than a week away! There are so many fun ways to celebrate this festive holiday, and I’ve been saving some of my favorite ideas to share here. So if you haven’t decided how to surprise all the ones you love this year, here are some ideas for you.
Brittany at The House that Lars Built put together a heart-shaped care package to send overseas—and she just put the address right on the outside of the box and shipped it! Wouldn’t it be a fun surprise to find in your mailbox? And while a Valentine’s card is sweet, I’m always a fan of sending a print that you can keep around a bit longer. I love the sentiments of these two from oh my deer. If a digestif is the way to your Valentine’s heart, may I suggest the Botánica cocktail with Cacao Prieto’s chocolate rum and muddled raspberries? Using the signature liquor from Brooklyn-based chocolatier, this recipe sounds decadent and delicious. And finally, there’s one of the most widely loved ways to serve chocolate: the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. Jacques Torres’ recipe has developed quite a reputation, so if you want to bake up a sweet surprise, it’s a sure winner. (Or if baking isn’t your strength, you can have the cookies delivered straight from Jacques to your door.)
