As our budding romance with Fisherman’s Wharf progresses, we’re starting to wonder, what is FW going to get us for Valentine’s Day? To help them and you find the perfect gift, we’ve put together a few inspirational gift ideas sure to wow your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Follow our fling with #WharfMeetsSquare.  

1. Handcrafted by the best local jewelers in Bali, these asymmetrical earrings from Cuyana ($140) will go with many ensembles and offer a subtle statement to finish any outfit.

2. If you’re really looking to impress this Valentine’s then a Le Vian ring with chocolate vanilla diamonds ($999) from Macy’s is just the ticket. This stunner will definitely take her breath away.

3. If your sweetheart has a sweet tooth, Café Rulli is a wonderful spot to pick up some special handmade chocolates. Specializing in Italian pastries and confections, they’ve created a collection of artisanal chocolates in a heart-shaped box ($28) just for Valentine’s Day.  

4. Make him dream of sandy beaches in to Caribbean with these classic Moorea pineapple print swim trunks from Vilebrequin ($280) and plane tickets to go along with them wouldn’t hurt either.

5. This leather mini-clutch from Cuyana ($170 in red, $190 in Champagne) is perfectly sized for an elevated evening look.
