lovely letters

I have been eying the Maya Brenner letter collection after spotting a necklace on one of my best friends. The necklaces, bracelets and earrings are all completely customizable with one or multiple letters. They are ideal for bridesmaids and besties. 
mini letter stud earrings $196 for a pair
asymmetrical mini letter necklace $198



caffeine fix

One of the best finds for locals, and tourists alike in San Francisco is Blue Bottle Coffee. With outposts throughout the city, it's hard to not join the hype and wait in line for a perfected single drip coffee or their signature gibralter. Although they now have a Brooklyn spot for east coasters, they are spreading the love even further with coffee subscriptions for those not lucky enough to have a shop within walking distance. This is a perfect gift for anyone who depends on an uber-flavorful cup to begin the day, or who fell in love with the java at first sip while visiting SF. I recently gifted this to my father-in-law with all of the fixings to make a gibralter - including the signature cup which is available for purchase on their site.

If you're looking to get in the holiday spirit, I wanted to share some adorable apparel options to gift yourself, or to others for Valentine's Day.

cheers to the couple

It's peak engagement time during this time of the year, so when I came across this, I absolutely had to share it! Through Wine for a Wedding, you can custom wine crates for the couple's 1, 5 & 10 year anniversaries. It's completely customizable - you select the design and pick the perfect bottles to complement the couple. You instantly create a thoughtful and memorable gift that will be cherished for years to come. Simply love it. 


love struck

The amazing team at Bellafare shared an absolute perfect Valentine's gift idea - these charming arrow necklaces created by a Sister/BFF team (just love that!). You can purchase for yourself, a friend, a loved one...or better yet, get two and share with your BFF! 

This is a serious upgrade to the split heart BFF necklace. 

$95 for one, $190 for two


manolo mayhem

Men, if you are struggling to find just the right Valentine's Day gift, you can't go wrong with a classic Manolo Blahnik at a fraction of the cost. At the NY store on 31 West 54th (btwn. 5th & 6th and open from 10:30- 6pm during the week; 10:30 - 5pm on Saturday and 12 - 5pm on Sunday) you can snatch up these coveted shoes for $195 per pair (vs. the usual $500 and up retail prices). Sale is through the weekend so perfect timing, but act quickly! You will show your thoughtfulness by knowing her shoe size (be prepared for European sizing, i.e. an 8 is a 38...just grab a heel from her closet for a size check) and showing her that you are a super stylish guy.
