Valentine's Day Is for Lovers! Great Gift Ideas for Him and Her

Mini_cakesValentine’s Day is just around the corner…have you found your fabulous gift yet for your one-and-only?

I’ve got some lovely ideas, just in the knick of time. Drop by A Perfect Event for your sweet Valentine. We’ll take care of you from start to finish.

P.S.- These ideas also work great if you are attending a party and need the ultimate hostess gift.



For the Ladies:

Let her eat cake, literally! Skip the predictable flowers and chocolates, and make her a yummy cake from scratch. Then accompany it with all the right accessories. Our stunning new arrivals from Rosanna would fit right in on Marie Antoinette’s table.

A glossy 3-tier black cake stand steals the show. More fabulous French-style pieces include beautiful candlesticks that you won’t believe aren’t vintage. White, black and daring gold are the palette.

Snap up the dessert and coffee set, also from Rosanna. Stunning red florals dance across plates, cups and saucers. Best of all, the boxes are works of art themselves—no wrapping required (ahem, men!). Just add ribbon.

Score points with the pink leather agenda or chic pencil cases (that don’t have to be used for pencils…great for makeup, spare change, you name it). Kate Spade also makes adorable playing cards, with pretty designs.

Now, every woman likes jewelry and pictures, so how about something to feature them? Stunning brocade jewelry boxes and picture frames are truly beautiful. She’ll adore them!                                                   4805p27001_2



For the Men:

Romance is in the air with these gifts he can’t help but love. Combine his love of adventure and celebration for the year ahead with creative gifts that are sure to impress.

For the wine snob, pick up a Wine Kit, for picnics on the beach, concerts at Ravinia and lazy days in Grant Park. Package it with a bottle of his favorite wine, or make it a case! Label each bottle in the case with a special occasion—“Valentine’s Day,” “Birthday,” “4th of July,” “Father’s Day” and more!

If martinis are his thing, create the Martini-to-Go Kit. Who doesn’t love to mix a cocktail at all of the fabulous summer parties and outings downtown along the lake. Pick up a Martini Recipe Book, filled with great new cocktail and garnish ideas, then top it off with a vodka sampler: Grey Goose Orange, Stoli Vanil and Effen Black Cherry. You’re set!

Rock his world with a sophisticated collection of music from his favorite city, from the AFTER DARK mix series. This is hot and modern “house” music for grown-ups, including: After Dark Milan, After Dark Paris…London…San Francisco…you get the idea. Travel without ever leaving the house.


Happy Valentine’s Day!
