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.
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.
Now open, Iosselliani, 4 W 29th St (near 5th Ave),
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.
Thursdays through February, 5:15pm, available at New
York Sports Club, 502 Park Ave (at 59th St), 212-308-1010
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.
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.
$120, available at Casa
Nonna, 310 W 38th St (between 8th and 9th Ave), 212-736-3000
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.
$35, available with 24 hours’ notice at Dominique
Ansel Bakery, 189 Spring St (between Thompson and Sullivan), 212-219-2773
