LA Florist Heather Williams' Top Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
If we're being honest, we'll take any excuse to head into florist/shop owner Heather Williams' sweet little gift shop, Twig & Twine (also the name of her booming floral business). Not only does she have all the freshest, seasonal blooms on standby for an impromptu bouquet, but practically everything in the store suddenly becomes something we never knew we couldn't live without: cookbooks chock full of mouth-watering photos, hand painted greeting cards, and dainty jewelry with just the right amount of edge, to name a few finds here. That said, with Valentine's Day around the corner we couldn't think of any better local expert on the subject of what to give your loved ones next Tuesday. So we popped by and had the flower whisperer give us her best ideas for how to spoil your sweethearts—and they're all for sale in the shop right now. You're welcome.
Flowers: the surefire and traditional way to spread love on Valentine's Day. If something isn't broken, don't fix it, but how about a little tuneup? Leave the typical red roses in the dust and buy your special someone a springy treat of ranunculus, anemones, daffodils, hellebores and tulips. Or for the more adventurous how about protea, thistle and anthurium? Something unique and thoughtful is guaranteed to bring you plenty of hugs and kisses.
Not everyone understands the joys of fresh-cut blooms, so why not give the gift that keeps on giving: a plant! A treat that will grow in time like the love you share with your sweetheart. Perfect gift for the dudes as well.
I Like You, I Love You by Carissa Potter
The sweetest and realest take on love you ever did see. I teared up the first time I read this book because it was so relatable. The illustrator's take on finding and falling in love is beyond charming and the ideal gift for any romantic.
Men of Style by Josh Sims
I'm a strong believer of man-gifts on Valentine's. It's not just a holiday for the ladies. This is the perfect gift for the stylish man who has your heart.
The humorous and discreet love notes on these In God We Trust pendants—such as "Flawless" and "Sweet Tits"—are sure to make your valentine smile. Wear that "Bad Bitch" proud knowing that your lover feels you deserve it.
For all the strong ladies out there—friends, lovers, sweethearts, sisters, Galentines, etc.—to scribble down all their ideas (for world domination). This one is especially pertinent to our current times. Pair with a The Future is Female t-shirt and you're good to go.
