I don’t know about you, but Valentine’s Day makes me feel sappy and romantic. And yes, I’ll admit it, I love being showered with gorgeous roses and artisanal chocolate, kinda cliche but it’s the truth. Anyhow, my perfect lovers day includes the one I love, a romantic atmosphere, a delicious bottle of red wine and gourmet chocolates. This gift guide for the Hopeless Romantic is short and sweet, but oh so perfect! Cheers to Passion & Romance!
Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Candle ($50) Vanille Insensée is a gorgeous aromatic candle that I am swooning over! This fragrance has a hint of sweet vanilla beautifully blended with jasmine, fresh lime, oak moss, woods and spicy coriander. It is an intoxicating scent that I would describe as sensual, warm and fresh all a the same time. This sultry candle will set the perfect mood for Valentine’s Day and romance.
2011 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Coastal Crush Red ($11) Coastal Crush Red is made from grapes that come from the cool-climate Central Coast. This is a bright, light and smooth wine that is primarily a blend of Syrah, Merlot, and Malbec. It features a juicy blend of ripe strawberry and red raspberry fruit with a hint of chocolate. This is a fresh, easy to drink wine that pairs easily with food, but tastes even better with chocolate!
Lula’s Chocolates Sea Salt Caramels ($12.95 for a 9 piece box) Lula’s is a California Coast artisanal chocolatier that people rave about. Lula’s is best know for their handmade caramels in smooth dark chocolate that are then topped with an eclectic selection of epicurean sea salts from around the world. The pairing of chocolate, caramel, and gourmet salt together is a sweet and salty feast for the senses and absolutely HEAVENLY!
