Red Dawn
Last-Minute Keys to V-Day Victory

Valentine’s Day. Yep, they’re still doing it. In three days, in fact. So we’ve taken the liberty of finding you some last-minute, fake-holiday-saving givables. You’re welcome.

UD - Shiny Roman Jewelry

FOR THE UNADORNED

Shiny Roman Jewelry

We don’t expect you subscribe to New-In-Town Italian Jewelers Quarterly. So you may have missed the new player in town, Iosselliani. Well, we’ve got it on good authority that they know their way around a stack ring. And that no date would turn down a good stack ring.
411:
Now open, Iosselliani, 4 W 29th St (near 5th Ave), 212-686-2211
UD - The Bondage Workout Plan

FOR THE LEATHER LOVER

The Bondage Workout Plan

You’re always looking for an activity you can share. Here’s one: the bondage workout class. It’s got blindfolds, ankle bindings, godlike amounts of stamina and a trainer literally named Love. And if you get a yes on that, you’ve got what’s commonly known as a keeper.
411:
Thursdays through February, 5:15pm, available at New York Sports Club, 502 Park Ave (at 59th St), 212-308-1010
UD - Full-Service Pampering in Midtown

FOR THE ONE WHO LIKES TO BE TOUCHED

Full-Service Pampering in Midtown

An hour-long, moonshine-based rubdown. It exists. And it’s apparently delightful. Also: it’s part of this spa package at Le Parker Meridien, along with a Drybar blowout, a manicure and lunch at Petit Blue Dog Café. Booze for the body, wheatgrass shots for the soul.
411:
$215, available at Moonshine Spa at Le Parker Meridien, 119 W 56th St (between 6th and 7th Ave), 212-708-7444, reserve here

FOR THE PECKISH

The “Home-Cooked” Meal

Maybe you can cook. Maybe not. Not important. Because this’ll make it look like you spent hours slaving over swordfish puttanesca or eggplant parmesan. It’s a “faking it” kit. It’s got an apron and beautiful food you literally just put in the oven and serve. Hopefully you can handle that.
411:
$120, available at Casa Nonna, 310 W 38th St (between 8th and 9th Ave), 212-736-3000

FOR CUPID’S VICTIM

The Custom Chocolate Arrow

Some people might say a life-size, personalized cupid’s arrow made entirely of chocolaty goodness from a treasured French confectioner is over the top. You simply shake your head slowly while saying, “Incorrect.” And then you get this. And yes, we measured Cupid’s arrows.
411:
$35, available with 24 hours’ notice at Dominique Ansel Bakery, 189 Spring St (between Thompson and Sullivan), 212-219-2773
