VALENTINE’S DAY DATE NIGHT AT HOME by charlotte miller
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we can’t help but start planning how to celebrate. Some years we can’t wait to put on our highest heels for a night on the town but this year we are opting for a cozy, comfortable, date night at home filled with locally made treats from some of our favorite Bay Area artisans.
For our Valentine’s Day date night at home all we want to do is pop open a bottle of Bluxome Street Winery 2011 Russian River Valley Chardonnay, nibble on some 479 Popcorn, and watch a movie on demand. For gifts, we decided to shop locally as well. A perfect gift for her is a 3D printed necklace by smith|allen, an interdisciplinary design firm based in Oakland that is a collaboration between an architectural designer and an installation artist. We particularly love the blue cellular series necklace shown above. A perfect gift for him is a bow tie from San Francisco company Tasty Ties. In their San Francisco collection, they designed a bow tie named after each neighborhood that captures the personality perfectly of each San Francisco neighborhood. One of our favorites is the Embarcadero shown above. Finish off the evening with cocoa collection chocolate for a sweet end to a perfect date night at home.
