I've always been a fan of Valentine's Day. February 14th is just another day to show the people around you how much you appreciate them. Whether in the form of grand gestures and communal gatherings or honest notes of appreciation, the day of hearts has us feeling quite sentimental (and the fact that dark chocolate will probably be in reach isn't the best part).

As an aficionado of food puns (and really all puns in general), Rifle Paper Co. may be my match. Get silly with style for the food-lover in your life.

Sarah Elmore paper goods also takes the cake. For the people that are darn better than cheddar or just plain gouda.

Make a bold statement with Modern House Wines, and give the gift of much-deserved indulgence and bold flavor.

Send some SOY LOVE with hand-crafted, hand-poured candles that burn for 50 hours and come in delicious scents like Lavender & Vanilla and Cinnamon & Clove.

We are in love with this Limited Edition line from S'well! Nothing says, "I care about you," like a fun new way to stay hydrated. (Bonus points: cold drinks stay refreshing for 24 hours and hot drinks stay toasty for 12 hours. Plus, no pesky condensation droplets on the exterior!)

As for food? Well, we've got you covered with some romantic recipes. Treat your loves, gal pals, man friends, and of course, yourself. 'Tis the season for appreciation.
