His: Zirh Cocktail Bar
For the One with a Sixth Sense

His: Zirh Cocktail Bar

Lather up with Zirh's Cocktail Soap Bars—in scents like Cucumber Martini, Long Island Iced Tea, Sake Bomb and Screwdriver. It's hair-of-the-dog philosophy taken to the next level.
411: Available at Sephora

Hers: Yosh Han Custom Fragrances

Get her a gift that's as unique as she is: her own bespoke scent. All she has to do is sniff a hundred different oils—from artichoke and oak moss to lilies and vanilla—to create her aroma profile. If there's no time for that, pick up the Sweet Suite, six of Yosh's signature scents.

His: Bar Accessories from Cask
For the Ultimate Home Entertainer

His: Bar Accessories from Cask

Ask a smart bartender and they'll tell you that every good home bar needs four things, in addition to booze: a Rosle bar strainer, a Boston shaker, a Mr. Mojito Craftsman muddler (designed by Clock Bar's own Marco Dionysos) and a lemon squeezer. Get them all in one place.
411: Available at Cask, 17 Third St (at Market), 415-281-6486

Hers: The Inside-Out Martini Glass 

She'll appreciate the sturdy construction and no-spill factor of these hand-blown glasses. You'll like the double-walled feature that keeps your martini chilled. Add the champagne flute, liqueur and shot glasses and she's got a complete set.

His: Cured Meats Samplers from Boccalone
For the Gourmand

His: Cured Meats Samplers from Boccalone

Opt for the limited-time, sliced-to-order Mortadella with black truffles or stick with the tried-and-true salami sampler—four chubs of unsliced salami. Either way, these handmade cured meats from heritage-breed pigs are a world away from bologna.
411: Available at Boccalone, Ferry Building Marketplace, or online

Hers: Kara's Cupcake Delivery

If there's one thing she'll never turn down (other than you), it's a cupcake from Kara's. Surprise her with two dozen—think: chocolate velvet, sweet vanilla, lemon, carrot—and a bottle of organic 2% from Clover, delivered right to her door.

His: North Face Surf & Turf Pants
For the One Who Battles the Elements

His: North Face Surf & Turf Pants

Given San Francisco's proximity to both mountains and the ocean, these ski pants that convert to board shorts will come in handy just about any day of the year. They're also great for a quick turn from the slopes to the hot tub.
411: Available at North Face, 180 Post St (at Grant), 415-433-3223, or online

Hers: Swims City Slippers

She's not one to sacrifice fashion to a few drops of rain—or a downpour for that matter—so she'll appreciate Swims' stylish galoshes. Not only will they keep her stilettos protected, but the city-map soles provide just the traction she needs on slippery sidewalks.

Available at Saks, 220 Post St (at Powell), 415-986-4300, or online
