Flowers and candy have their place in the Valentine's Day giftverse, but I always like to think outside the box, so I searched through some of my favorite etsy shops - TJBSGDI, am I right? - for some sweet gift ideas that feature these romantic shades but won't wither and die after a week or make anybody stress about calories or carbs.
Take, for example, these two absolutely amazing Victorian style domed vintage wooden bird cages ... or an antique cranberry glass rose bowl vase flashed with gold... both available at Nyssa Ink.
Or this fabulous 1970s cranberry velvet maxi dress, with cream colored lace that's to die for, from Kris's Vintage Clothing ...
|Fun fact: Etienne Aigner originally called his trademark burgundy color "Antic Red."|
We've got one Aigner bag listed at the moment - the last of three we bought from a local estate a few months ago. The leather is so soft!
... or this Wallace China restaurant ware set of mid century modern cups and saucers that feature a fab reddish brown art deco inspired design on an ivory background - these would be very romantic given with a box of your sweetheart's favorite tea or a bag of coffee beans. These can be found at Grouchy Parrot, where they have another similar set if you just can't make do with one.
