Melanie Turner“After Christmas shopping and my husband’s birthday in early February, I’m usually out of options and gift ideas. But you can’t go wrong with a box of chocolate or toffee. For myself, I love any piece of jewelry designed by Lisa Stein.” — Melanie Turner, Melanie Turner Interiors

Caryn Doug Print-1237“I’m partial to Sean OKeefe Events’ new Floral of the Month Club, which is designed to celebrate love year round in conjunction with the grand opening of our design and floral studio. For an extra touch, I think diAmano Chocolate’s personalized handmade chocolates are the best gift for Valentines Day. See Faye to personally select treats for your love. “— Sean O’Keefe, Sean O’Keefe Events

Mallory Mathison“This Valentine’s Day, I am pining away for the vibrant, exhilarating Marche Dansant {Dancing March} by Georges Nasari through Huff Harrington Fine Art.  This painting makes me want to hop on a plane to Paris and skip down Rue Cremieux celebrating the upcoming arrival of Spring.  When I think of the perfect Valentine’s present it’s one that evokes love, passion and inspiration… and Marche Dansant does each of these perfectly!” — Mallory Mathison Glenn, Mallory Mathison Inc.

Robert Brown“I am very fortunate to be in Europe shopping for business right before Valentine’s Day.  For my wife, this year I wondered into a Hermès store and picked a great cashmere stole. It’s huge and looks so warm and luxurious.  My daughter was easy.  She specifically requested Eiffel Tower earrings.  You can find these on every corner and, at 13, it’s ok just to spend 5 Euros.” — Robert Brown, Robert Brown Interior Design

Clary Bosbyshell“My favorite Valentine’s gift is a piece of original art. I love NG Collectives Minis, especially pieces by Kristen Giorgi.” — Clary Bosbyshell, Margaux Interiors Limited
