Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you don’t have to go far from home to find the perfect gift for the one you love.
If your usual Valentine’s Day “go to" gift roster has lost its luster, try these chic local boutiques to find fabulous and unique gifts that won’t break your wallet.
For Your ‘Foodie’
The local Certified Farmer’s Market has an abundance of farm fresh products to impress your sweetie. I fell in love with Farmers Daughter, Orange Blossom Honey. Place in coffee, tea or drizzle over…your oatmeal for a delicious treat!
Farmer’s Daughter Olive Oil and Honey, out of Hemet, Calif., may be found Wednesdays in Palm Desert as well as Saturdays at the Palm Springs Certified Farmer’s Markets. http://farmersdaughteroliveoil.com; 951-973-3825
What to get the person who has “everything”…you won’t go wrong with a gift from Clementine Gourmet Marketplace & Café on El Paseo in Palm Desert. English soaps, French linens, and Moroccan glassware are just a few items to impress your most worldly gift connoisseurs. And if you prefer traditional, the Grand Courtage champagne and heart Petits Fours are just as worldly.
Need an Ice Breaker?
Share a smile with this stylish, functional and fun gift choice found at Kitchen Kitchen on Highway 111 in Indian Wells. The whimsical GurglePot is sure to lighten up the mood at your table. Nicknamed the “giggle pot”, this stoneware pitcher makes a gurgling noise when liquid is poured. Available in multiple sizes with over 30 different colors, we thought red, pink, and white for your Valentine would tickle his or her fancy.
Make your partner glow inside and out with naturally luxurious skincare products from The Body Deli on Highway 111 in Palm Desert. Focused on raw, organic, living botanicals, The Body Deli handcrafts the purest and healthiest soaps, lotions, scrubs, and more for both men and women. Check out the Palm Springs Collection designed with fresh ingredients from right here in the Coachella Valley (think “dates” for your date) or satisfy your heartthrobs craving with a Chocolate Truffle selection.
And, Then There’s Just Fabulous
Give a gift with swagger from upscale lifestyle gift boutique and bookstore, Just Fabulous on North Palm Canyon in Palm Springs. Curvy frames by Jonathan Adler, a red “Satellite Bowl”, or a special book celebrating your relationship (Just Fabulous recommends “2: How Will you Create Something Beautiful Together by Dan Zadra) will make the perfect statement to show you care.
