Visit your favorite bakery and/or shop to purchase gifts of Raspberry Truffle ice cream, artisan cakes, divine cookies, and specialty peanut butter. (Yes, we really are suggesting peanut butter for Valentines Day… Have you tried Coffee & Chocolate PB? Chipotle PB? Better yet, have you tried dipping a piece of dark chocolate into some Pumpkin Pie PB?

Tigers Blood Social Club and Tattoos, AlamedaSomething Completely Different

There’s no need to purchase a “store-bought” card when Pippa & Co has a collection of handmade, Valentine-themed gifts and cards. Then for something sexy and fun, you may want to check out the selection of lingerie at Aphrodite’s Closet (all at 15% off until Feb. 14). But for an entirely different Valentine’s Day gift, take your significant other to pick out an artistic rose or heart tattoo at Tiger’s Blood Social Club during their “Valentines Day Tattoo Massacre.”
