Life may be like a box of chocolates but we’re thinking outside the box when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. The Laundress co-founders, Gwen and Lindsey, share some of the gifts they’re getting for their sweeties this year.
VINTAGE OAK BAR TOOL | BAR10DER
Lindsey has her eye on this 10 in 1 bar tool (a gentleman’s take on a Swiss Army knife) that includes a muddler, reamer, stirrer, jigger, knife, bottle opener, channel knife, corkscrew, zester, and strainer.
HANDSOME DAN FOOTBALL | LEATHER HEAD
This classic leather football is a tailgating staple, sure to bring back nostalgic memories for your sporty sweetheart.
LE LABO SANTAL 33 | THE LAUNDRESS
The Laundress ladies looked high and low for the perfect fragrance to pair with their detergent and found it in Le Labo – a modern perfumery with a cult following. This detergent boasts a delicate, yet iconic, woody fragrance the man in your life will appreciate.
LACQUER BACKGAMMON SET | JONATHAN ADLER
This preppy essential gets a fun, modern update with bright colors. You won’t want to stash this is in your games closet, which means more chances for impromptu game nights.
FOUR-PACK | TILE
This is a functional gift you may also want for yourself. The tiles, each equipped with a Bluetooth tracker, attaches to items like keys or wallets, so virtually any item can be tracked down in seconds.
HEART BOXERS | J.CREW
We just can’t help ourselves. Classic heart boxers are a fun and timeless gift year after year.
HEART SOCKS | SOCK SHOP
Gwen loves to give festive socks to her Valentine. These cozy socks are perfect for the guy who likes to wear his heart on his sleeve, or in this case, leg.
BEVERAGE COOLER | HYPER CHILLER
Gadget loving guys will flip for this device. It can chill a bottle of wine or a cocktail in one minute, and turn a hot cup of Joe into an iced coffee in just 15 seconds.
THE SEARCH FOR EVERYTHING TICKETS | JOHN MAYER
Give something to look forward to with a concert date night dancing to John Mayer’s newest songs. He recently announced a spring tour to promote his new record, The Search for Everything.
LIMITED EDITION ROSA MUNDI CANDLE | DIPTYQUE PARIS
This gorgeous candle is part of a collaboration with Antoinette Poisson to develop two exclusive motifs for Valentine’s Day. The scent combines the two most exquisite roses used in perfumery: Damascena, the Damask rose, and Centifolia, the May rose.
ROSE HIBISCUS HYDRATING FACE MIST | HERBIVORE BOTANICALS
This all-natural, plant-based mist softens and hydrates all skin types. Bonus, the simple, but oh-so-pretty packaging makes it a nice item to keep out on display.
GARBO PJ SET | JOURNELLE Is there anything more lux than silk-charmeuse pajamas? Gwen is a big fan of this tuxedo-inspired set in a gorgeous blush shade.
AVIATOR SUNGLASSES | RAY BAN
We love to give (and get) classic aviators and these pink lenses offer a cool update that makes the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
THE LOVER’S DICTIONARY | DAVID LEVITHAN
This intriguing book constructs the story of a relationship through a dictionary. The end result is a unique and moving tale of the joys, trials and great milestones of coupledom.
BRA & UNDERWEAR KIT | THE LAUNDRESS
Pretty little underpinnings require a delicate touch. This kit contains everything you need to clean and preserve your cherished pieces for years to come.
CACTUS | THE VINE
Lindsey loves gifting these petit succulents – available in a variety of bright colors. They require only a small bit of sunshine and a few drops of water each day – perfect for a pick-me-up in a small space like an office, bathroom or kitchen window.
1. WILSON KEY RING | CRAIGHILL
This minimalist, chic key ring makes a practical, yet thoughtful gift for a friend or family member. We love the colored stripe – anything to make our keys easier to find!
LOVER’S CARD SET | PEEPS’S PAPER X GOOP
We can’t get enough of this sexy, grown-up Valentine’s Day card set. The sophisticated designs are all hand illustrated.
