Cupid Is as Cupid Does

Valentine’s Gifts: Last-Minute Edition

Saint Valentine. That guy really did a number on you. No worries, though. You can still do this. And considering you’ve only got about three days to still do this, allow us to help you out with that—with five Valentine’s Day gifts there’s still time to procure.

Aromachology Custom Scents
FOR THE AROMATHERAPIST

Aromachology Custom Scents

The perfume pickup. Pretty essential, that one. Probably best to customize it based on your giftee’s personality type. Go online and choose a base (exotic, spicy...), then some top notes (seductive, spontaneous...), then wait two days for it to show up, and spray it all over someone. Well, maybe just someone’s neck.

Necklaces. Vintage Ones.
FOR THE NECK MODEL

Necklaces. Vintage Ones.

Dinner reservation: check. Someone to eat food with once you show up for your dinner reservation: check. One-of-a-kind necklaces made with vintage Victorian brooches and art deco pendants from the ’20s: not quite check. So... here.

The Story of Olga
FOR THE BEDTIME-STORY FAN

The Story of Olga

There’s this new photography book. A pictorial fairy tale, really. The main character’s name is Olga. And, well... Olga likes to pose for pictures with no clothes on in front of giant châteaus with a bunch of Eyes Wide Shut–looking people. Should make a pretty good gift. And a pretty good night.

Mountain Crest at Snowmass
FOR THE DISCERNING SNOW BUNNY

Mountain Crest at Snowmass

Six bedrooms. Private chef. Fully stocked bar. Hot tub overlooking your own private ski run. Sounds pretty nice. In fact, it sounds exactly like this sprawling new chalet in Snowmass Village that you and your date are about to take over for a long weekend. Mostly because it is.

Farm-2-Market Oysters
FOR THE SHUCK OF A LIFETIME

Farm-2-Market Oysters

Nice job planning that big home-cooked dinner. Someone’s really going to appreciate that. Especially when they find out you ordered a few dozen oysters (Quilcene, Kumamoto, Olympia...) from a San Francisco–based bivalve house that doesn’t pull them out of the water until you order them. The whole aphrodisiac thing’s a nice bonus.
