A grocery-store sixer simply won’t do for this Hallmark holiday; show the love with these romantically beery gifts.
STUCK ON YOU: Personalize Erin Condren’s heart-shaped labels ($25 for 23) and stick ‘em on a bottle of your very own homebrew.
MADE WITH LOVE: Nothing beats a sweet treat you make yourself: Try Sprinkle Bakes blogger Heather Baird’s delectable ale and pretzel soft caramels.
BATH FOR TWO: Your V-day gameplan: You, your significant other, flutes of saison and a bubbly tub. Lather up with The Beer Soap Co.’s round bars of beer-infused soaps, crafted with everything from Abita Pecan Harvest Ale to Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout; cut to the chase with Sex Panther soap ($5.50), made with Brazil’s Xingu schwarzbier.
LOVE NOTES: Etsy artisan RobertoSand laser-engraves birch beer carriers with any message imaginable; think of something saucy, then fill the box with your Valentine’s four favorite brews.
JUST DESSERTS: Feed each other Vosges’ Madagascar vanilla bean and caramel marshmallows, and share a snifter of Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout; they come beautifully boxed in the chocolatier’s mouthwatering set ($50).
BEER BOX: Skip roses and give your beer-drinkin’ sweetie hop flowers instead: FromYouFlowers.com offers the limited-edition Samuel Adams Hoppy Valentine’s Day basket ($55), which in addition to gorgeous green hops includes two pint glasses, a bottle opener keychain, organic dark chocolate, artisanal salami, smoked gouda cheese and a mixed-nut assortment, all for pairing with a favorite brew.
