Valentine’s Day Style

We would take the 101 to the 10 to the 405 for you. What can we say, love makes us do crazy things. So while you may claim to loathe February 14, keep reading for some of the most thoughtful and out-of-the-box ideas for your Valentine.

Flower Firm LA

Pick up a fresh bouquet from Flower Firm LA, an obvious name for lawyer turned florist, Madison Karsenty’s floral studio and pop-up. Her arrangements are beautiful, non-traditional and wild — simply put, an ideal sign of affection for the most elegant hippie you may know.. Pre-orders in advance of February 14 are available via email or by phone 310-801-9888. What’s better than a florist who texts? See, we told you she’s unconventional.


Should you go the traditional route and give a woman flowers she’ll likely expect a card to go with it. Poketo designs their very own stationery and any occasion cards that capture the passion and creativity of the brand. There’s no cutting corners when it comes to a true love letter and Poketo’s selection of cards are the perfect pick.

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream

Van Leeuwen, Van Leeuwen, Van Leeuwen. You get us and we are getting your Anti Valentine’s Day Black Heart Sundae. There’s whip cream with black honeycomb on the bottom, a mini scoop of black sesame ash ice cream in the middle, and, fruit compote with more black honeycomb pieces on top. Believe us when we say it tastes better than it feels. Still up for seconds? The Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sundae consists of vegan brownie pieces, a mini scoop of strawberry ice cream, fudge or vegan chocolate sauce, strawberry rose drizzle and topped off with heart shaped sprinkles and dried strawberries. Both sundaes only available from February 9 to 18. Just like our Valentine’s, we can’t resist.


You know that guy who is impossible to buy for because he already has everything he needs? It stresses us out too. So you’re not flying the both of you to Bora Bora for a long weekend. Skip the time you would spend on Pinterest searching and enter artist David Kaul. Joining Reservoir February 9, 10, and 11, David sets up shop and is painting custom skateboard decks for your dude or even you. Shreebs Coffee will have cold brew coffee plus their own coffee for sale too.

Charlotte Stone

What woman doesn’t love shoes? Call us when you find one. The latest name to pop-up at PLATFORM is Charlotte Stone and believe us when we say this is one shop you won’t want to miss. The kind of shoes someone “forgets” where they got them because it’s clear this is the next name every wardrobe will need to know. In honor of Valentine’s Day, select pink and red shoes are 25% off. Need another reason? They’re beautiful and comfortable too.

Bird Brooklyn

Bird Brooklyn is sharing the love and offering 10% off all jewelry purchases through February 14. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but we’re more interested in spending time with real women. Think Grace Lee, Sophie Buhai, Melissa Joy Manning to name a few, plus many more including Quarry, Wake and Catbird too.


Tenoverten has a Valentine’s Day Gift Box like you wouldn’t believe and all for $125. This curated clean beauty gift set contains non-toxic nail care staples and their top-selling pink and red shades. Throw in a soothing jade roller and luxurious candle and you’ve got the perfect package for indulging in some serious self-care. Perfect for any beauty guru, refer your BFF to tenoverten to receive a $25 credit while your extra appreciative friend receives 50% off for their first visit.


Lastly, let’s take a moment to sit back, relax and reflect on the simple things in life. Warm sunny days in LA, the generous Pinot Noir pour at dinner last night, a closet full of Velvet tees. These clean and elevated staples are made only the finest fabrics so treat yourself to some fine designs and receive a free bundle of flowers from Flower Firm LA with every purchase while supplies last.
