Milk Bar

Some of us like our Valentine's Day celebrations to be festive, but not so on-the-nose. There are few things as festive as birthday cake, and there are few people who make a better one than Christine Tosi. Her deconstructed funfetti cake is a longtime hit at Milk Bar, and it's exactly the right vibe for just about any holiday. A 6-inch cake serves 8–12, and a 10-inch serves more than 20.

Of course, it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without candy.

Each pack includes 20 cookies.

If the super-sweet nature of Valentine's Day doesn't for you, skip the conversation hearts and give something savory. The Californian brand Brightland has carved its space in the market for making distinctive, top-quality olive oils, vinegars, and honeys. Their Mini Essentials Kit packs two distinctive olive oils and two distinctive vinegars that can star in a holiday meal worth remembering. (And, if you're not totally skipping sweets, try the "Rapture" olive oil on a scoop of good vanilla ice cream for an easy but sophisticated dessert!)

21 / 23
Le Moné

CItrus has a special superpower of brightening up the darkest, coldest winter nights. Want proof? Try a shot of Le Moné's bright, aromatic aperitif and for a few seconds you'll be standing on the Ligurian coast. While we suggest sipping it chilled and straight, it also works well in spritzes, margaritas, and yes, a retro Lemon Drop.

When the NJ father/son duo behind The Bagel Nook set out to concoct some of the wackiest bagel flavors imaginable, they did a solid job: World, meet the Oreo-stuffed Overloaded Oreo Bagel. If your coworkers could use some whimsy, treat them to a dozen red-and-pink swirled bagels (actually 11 red bagels and one heart-shaped bagel ... that one's for you). And, of course, they ship the schmears, too. Add a tub of Maple Bacon, Birthday Cake, or Jalapeño Cheddar and be the office sweetheart.

Pineapple Collaborative

The internet flipped out a while back when the Pineapple Collaborative introduced its Apple Cider Vinegar (it had a waitlist of 1,000+!). Now the retailer is bundling the vinegar with its best-selling Olive Oil to make any day-to-day dish feel like so much more. The pair will also make your pantry a little more stylish with its minimalistic bottles that come in a variety of colors that will make you happy as they peek out of the cabinet.
