Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

This Valentine’s Day, think about the imbibers in your life and what kinds of treats they’d love most. From a rich vermouth to vintage Champagne coupes, we’ve got some ideas that are sure to please.

Alessio | Vermouth di Torino Rosso
One of the most delicious vermouths of 2015 is now being released in the smaller, home bar–friendly 375 mL. size, making it easier to use up a bottle while it’s still fresh. Vermouth fans will love the rich body and bright berry flavors sipped on the rocks or neat, and it works beautifuly in cocktails. Try the Rosso in the gin-based Hanky Panky. $19

Alma Chocolate | Large Sacred Heart
Almost too pretty to eat, this 5″ by 5″ chocolate heart is rich and earthy with a makeup of 74% dark chocolate. Pair it with a madeira or port, or do like the folks at Alma Chocolate do, and reach for a big, bold beer like Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. $25, almachocolate.com

Chicago Candle Company | Gin & Rosemary Candle
Inspired by the botanicals used to make gin, the lovely aromas of this soy candle are sure to mellow the mood. Bonus: each candle comes nestled neatly within the shell of a former wine bottle. $28, chicagocandleco.com

Craft & Mason Coffee | Aurelo Ceron Colombian Coffee 
Every good brunch needs good coffee, and these Colombian beans roasted by Craft & Mason offer hints of peach, black tea and honey. $16.50 for 12 oz.,  craftandmason.com

Francois Motand | Brut Rosé
Made in the classic Champagne method, this blend of black Grenache and Cinsault is crisp and effervescent with hints of dark brown sugar and vanilla, making it a perfect rosé for sipping away the chill of winter. $13.99, wine.com

Food 52 | Set of 2 Vintage Champagne Coupes 
Sip your bubbly in style with a set of vintage coupes. Each set is hand-selected by Salon du The, meaning the styles will shift from order to order. $28, food52.com
