Valentine's Day will be here before we can blink an eye! It is amazing to me that January is over already! Where did the time go? I thought I would come up with a Valentine's Day Gift Guide with New York City products! New York City has some of the BEST shops in the world, and the merchandise is just amazing. I like to give regular gifts for Valentine's Day, not always chocolates, but they are nice to give if you know of a GREAT chocolate shop! Here are just a few items I thought would make for nice gifts, not only for your significant other, but your best friend, your mom, sister or perhaps mother-in-law!!
My favorite coffee New York Gourmet Coffee makes a wonderful gift for the coffee lover! So many flavor selections, no calories and they grind the coffee to whatever you prefer or you can receive the whole bean. The Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Cup are new and I need to try those soon! All flavored coffees come in Decaf as well for those who need to choose that type of coffee. They also make non-flavored as well if you are more that type of a coffee drinker.
The museums shops in New York City (or any city actually) offer some amazing and unique gift ideas. This ultra cool necklace from Museum of Art and Design is called a Swedish Love Story Necklace. You would receive many compliments wearing this piece just about anywhere!!
One of the most original chocolate ideas comes from Jaqures Torres, Mr. Chocolate, with chocolate covered cheerios! What a fun gift, they do ship these from his website, along with lots of other wonderful chocolate confections!

You can check out my fabulous review of this wonderful tea set HERE and be sure you are giving one unique gift to whomever you choose to receive it. This is so lovely, I had to include it in my list for you.
I had the pleasure of visiting the Goorin Brothers Hat shop in the village and it was so fantastic! Hats for the gentlemen or ladies can be found here and would be a marvelous Valentine's Day gift!!
Our friends at The Savory Pantry have these old fashioned candies available that are made in Brooklyn, New York. I love the bottles they use to store them, and the old fashioned type labels. Flavors come in Green Apple, Concord Grape and Wild Strawberry.
Levain Bakery actually ships their amazing cookies nationwide. I cannot begin to tell you how many points you will score if you send this gift to a lucky person. These cookies are just heaven on earth!! You can also check out my review of the bakery HERE.
I have become a MAJOR fan of the Drybar product line. When I use these styling products, my hair always looks it's best. This is a great way to try them, a trio of 3 of their best styling products. They sell direct on their website, as well as Sephora, and it would be also fun to include a gift certificate with this set for your favorite person to receive a blow out as well!
Henri Bendel is one of the most iconic stores on 5th Avenue. This ultra cool bag screams New York City and would make for an incredible gift. I love these types of illustrations, this Megan Hess Street Style Shopper can be found online exclusively!
Accomplice New York is a cool show. Here is some info from their site which best describes it:
Accomplice is a theatrical scavenger hunt.The world becomes your stage during this urban exploration. Part cafe crawl, part immersive theatre, Accomplice transports its participants into a world of secrets, clues, and mystery.Bars, street corners, and iconic landmarks take on new depth and meaning as you stroll through historic neighborhoods carrying out a mission.Lines between reality and play are blurred as actors send you from place to place, leaving you asking, “Who’s in on this? Who’s not?”
I hope you have enjoyed this small list of ideas. Tickets to a Broadway show is always a very nice gift if your receiver is a fan of the shows. You can get pretty creative with your gifts these days. I tried to select items that would work for a lady or gentleman.
Disclosure: The Savory Pantry is a sponsor of this blog. I do not receive any type of paid commission for any purchases made via this post. These are items which I myself find pretty fabulous and would make for a great gift for the Valentine's Day holiday. Actually, any holiday, for that matter!! Thank you.
