Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Thymes Goldleaf bath products make a stunning impression. Besides the packaging being festive and pretty, the jasmine, rose, and hyacinth draw a tapestry of scent on her skin. Put together a combination of bath powder, lotion, and soap and then give her an hour to herself, no questions asked. Your Valentine will find one hundred ways to thank you!
Kate & Company, Bristol ($13-$49)
She'll love an iconic heart in sweet shimmering silver. Green River Silver Co. has outdone themselves with pendants, bracelets, and earrings of whimsical hearts to cherish. Better choose two as she'll surely want one close to her heart.
Green River Silver Co., Bristol, Providence, Wickford ($10 - $186)
A tissue weight wool scarf in an Easter egg color will keep her warm now but herald in her spring later. These cheery accessories are more affordable than you think but have the mark of luxury and will be sweet and soft around her neck. Happy colors, happy Valentine.
Stalise Boutique, Portsmouth ($30)
She adores it so why not indulge her? Pink Pineapple carries the best cashmere in the chicest styles. Choose a stunning black tunic to wear with winter boots or a bright sweater in a Palm Beach color to lift a dreary winter mood. Go ahead...make her Valentine's Day!
Pink Pineapple, Newport, Portsmouth ($50-$200)
Gifted socks don't have to be a boring practical gift when you choose a few pairs from the delightful Details accessory boutique. They have scads and scads to choose from. Make a bigger impact with three or four pairs of patterned and textured styles and both her feet AND heart will be warm.
Details, Providence ($14-$30)
Old money bling
There are some wonderful treasures in the estate jewelry case at most jewelry stores but the Ocean House gift shop has only carefully edited pieces and the collection changes often enough that it's always a surprise. A pretty charm for her bracelet with a heritage past will show your thoughtfulness and good taste.
Ocean House, Watch Hill ($250 up)
Today's mini clips and barrettes are yesterday's glamorous 40's hair combs. The most fanciful and sparkly are at Karol Richardson. Just one of these irresistible little hair charmers will throw facets of light back at your smiling face in thanks. You'll love the candy counter experience so cast a spell with one (or two), made in France with Swarovski crystals.
Karol Richardson, Newport ($4-$66)
Lingerie is a traditional Valentine's Day gift but forget granny gowns and opt for an exquisite chemise in a sumptuous color. Blush of Montreal's Sweetest Sin chemise works for all women with its covered lace and quarter wire for support. The beauty of lace is that it draws attention but reveals little.
Staci's Place, Fine Intimate Apparel, East Greenwich ($66)
