Five Great Local Gifts for Your Valentine

Wednesday, February 09, 2011


Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot!

La Perla has been synonymous with luxury since 1954, and decades later, the lingerie company’s legacy endures. It’s a complete splurge, but think of it this way: bare necessities of this caliber are indeed a gift for her, but once on, truly a gift for him. Mignonette has plentifuloptions, but an eye-catching bra ($225) and matching panty ($140) set in red of handmade Leavers lace would make any Valentine swoon. A jaw-dropping one-piece option is a red, spaghetti strap La Perla chemise ($350). Mignonette, 301 Wickenden Street, Providence, 272-4422, mignonette.net

Rock On

Have a huge heart but a tiny bank account? The Curatorium has the sweetest, petite, heart-shaped rocks for just $5 that make the perfect pick me up for a friend who could use a smile. 197 Wickenden Street, Providence, 453-4080, thecuratorium.com

Mixed Signals

Say it with signals with nautical flag jewelry from Style Newport. Each flag represents a letter, so present you betrothed with a secret hidden message. One Rhode Island young man gave his best gal a beautiful bracelet with flag charms that secretly spelled out “Marry Me?” which now makes for a precious keepsake and conversation piece. Initials, monograms and simply spelled out “Love” can all be customized. Style Newport, 302 Thames Street, Newport, 847-1470, stylenewport.com

Love Times Two

West Side Wellness has two ways couples can celebrate Cupid’s lovestruck arrows...their Valentine's couples massage package includes a 60-minute couples massage on Friday, February 11 and Saturday, February 12 (two tables, two therapists, one room), cupcakes, and a coupon for a half-price appetizer at nearby Broadway Bistro ($150 per couple). Looking for homework? West Side’s partner massage workshop on Sunday, February 13, from 1-4pm includes instruction on basic therapeutic massage techniques in a small group setting with wine and cheese ($125 per couple). Make reservations for both. West Side Wellness, 379 Broadway, Providence, 837-6204, westsidewell.com

Too Cute

Wanna see grown men coo? Check out the 100% cotton Carters onesie hand screenprinted by Heatherjeany with an old time bicycle graphic being chased by a flurry of red hearts at Craftland. The unisex style, $16, is unisex and completely precious. (Grown ups, however, might find the perfect piece at this weekend’s jewelry trunk show there too!) Craftland, 235 Westminster Street, Providence, 272-4285, craftlandshop.com (pictured here)
