Union Square SF’s Valentine’s Gift Guide for Her & Him

In case you haven’t picked up a Valentine’s gift for your special someone (or for yourself), we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite treats, indulgences and luxuries sure to impress your sweetheart. It’s all available right here in Union Square, so you can stop by and have it wrapped and ready come Valentine’s Day. 

Spa Queen (or King)

If your partner loves to home spa it, we have plenty of delightful bath products perfect for pampering. For the city girl, we love Fresh’s Sake Bath soak (#1 above - $80), which has detoxifying sake in it to ease tension and promote relaxation. Top this off with the Brown Sugar Body Polish (#2 - $65) for supremely soft skin, and you’ve got one sumptuous bath!

Bewitched, Bejeweled…

One of our go-to gift boutiques is Gallery of Jewels – it’s a treasure trove of hand-crafted baubles and bangles to suit any taste. For a Valentine, we recommend the adorable At Last charm by Heather Moore (#3 - $870) or an elegantly striking pendant necklace by Adel Chefridi (#4 - $1,162).

For the guy or gal who enjoys a unique and modern look, we love Adam Neeley’s designs. Try these gorgeous L’Aqua teardrop earrings (#5 - $2190), made with rose gold and diamonds to truly spoil your lady this Valentine’s. For the gents, they have some absolutely stunning, yet masculine rings, such as the Vibe Ring (#6 - $790) in gold or silver with oxidized grooves.

Macy’s jewelry department offers a huge selection of lovely accessories for your Valentine this year. Consider the Michael Kors gold hue watch in a variety of colors (including pink!) or a beautiful Bonzarte rose gold cuff bracelet.

We see London, We see France…

If you’re looking to spice things up with some pretty lingerie, we recommend a trip to Agent Provocateur. We like their Classic Dressing Gown for a touch of old Hollywood glamour. Also, consider the silky bright pink Novah Slip, which would make the perfect Valentine’s nightie. On Valentine’s Day they’ll offer exclusive couple's shopping appointments with Champagne cocktails and sweet treats as well as a special gift with purchase.

For the guys, we suggest the David Jersey boxer shorts (#7 above - $50) in pink from Thomas Pink! It’s hard not to make a statement in these brave Jersey knit boxers. Crafted from 100% cotton they are soft-to-the-touch and both comfy and classic.

Little Luxuries

If you really want to go all out this year, Mulberry is a wonderful boutique to visit. Their elegant British handbags are truly exquisite, yet practical. Consider the adorable Willow Tote (#8 - $2,300) in Ballet Pink. It is truly irresistible! The men aren’t left out, either – you can get a stately tri-fold wallet (#9 - $330) in a lovely oak natural leather for him.

If your sweetheart is more into treating her feet, then we heart the cute ballet flats from London Sole. Try their red Nubuck ballet pumps (#10 above) or their petal pink ballet pumps (#11 - $155). These timelessly stylish flats are the perfect addition to any fashion-forward gal’s wardrobe. Plus, all red and pink styles are 10% off through Feb. 14.

For the gents, we like the idea of some classic flair that he normally wouldn’t buy for himself. Try Thomas Pink’s cute Elephant pocket square (#12 - $70) in silk. With its charming pattern this would make an ideal gift for an unsuspecting man.

Oh so Sweet

When all else fails, some good chocolate is always a sure bet. A stop by Ghirardelli will yield a whole array of decadent goodies to choose from. We recommend the Sweetheart Truffles box (#13 - 2 for $20) with a variety of carefully crafted truffles in unique flavors.

If you’re looking for something a little less traditional, consider a trip to Chocolatier Blue. This delectable little gem of a chocolate shop offers scrumptious works of art made from seasonal ingredients and top quality chocolate with flavors like root beer float, sage honey and sweet potato casserole to name a few. A small box of these big impact chocolates is sure to go a long way with your date this Valentine’s Day.

So go ahead, spoil your honey this Valentine’s Day! It’s sure to earn you points all year long.
