this. I'm basically doing all the work for you because I don't like it when my friends hand out uninspired gifts.
I just threw up a little in my mouth reading those sayings. Anyways. First up, you can go to Peter Pan, buy some pink frosted doughnuts and binge your mutual ways through an evening "House of Cards" marathon. (Let's not mention that this is totally my plan for Friday.) Those not in Brooklyn and/or in need of chocolate gifts can head down to Essex Street Market or Forsyth Street for something from Roni-Sue's Chocolates. If you're not a true fan of their Valentine's picks, the ladies there can help you whip something together. Have someone who loves those sweet confections known as macarons? Well, then head to Macaron Parlour. These vibrant hearts showed up in my Instagram last night and even I got sentimental and lovey-dovey.
an ice cream gram from MilkMade! Two pints of ice cream--Salted Caramel & Red Velvet Cake--hand-delivered on Friday with a handwritten note (with your love saying, obviously). Also, perfect for that "House of Cards" binge. Want to get a whole personalized medley of things complete with savory items and bouquets because we all know you can turn this holiday into a weekend at home doin' thangs? Then order some groceries through Good Eggs. For those needing your favorite New York things somewhere else in the country, then Farm to People is your answer.
Now no one has a reason to not buy your love, or me, something scrumptious.
