Dinner can be something as simple as a nice loaf of bread, a great piece of cheese, a bit of fruit. Maybe a little pâté if you’re feeling a little fancy. A bottle of wine or champagne and you’re all set. Check out our recipe for an easy pâté that would be perfect for Valentine’s.
Of course you could just skip right to chocolate fondue. Ours is made with deep dark chocolate and a touch of cognac for a sophisticated version of this Valentine’s day classic.

Valentine’s day never seems complete without some Conversation Heart candies.
We love puzzles and these 3-D Heart jigsaw puzzles are a fun Valentine’s gift for all ages. Sold in sets of three, these are great as individual favors for a Valentine’s Day Party for kids and adults.
Setting the mood encompasses all the senses. The sense of smell is a powerful and often overlooked trait. P.F. Candle Co.’s Rose & Sandalwood candle fits the bill perfectly here. The combination of rose and sandalwood is a classic and is a blend that is better than the individual components.

Chanel’s Bleu de Chanel for him is a personal favorite. A spicy, woodsy fragrance with citrus and herbs, this is a sophisticated, yet understated fragrance.
