Chocolate-Dipped Vanilla Caramels
F&W's Grace Parisi experiments with ever-versatile to make these chewy candies.
Tea lovers will adore these heart-themed teas from DAVIDsTEA. The fine mesh stainless steel infuser filled with either berry or Earl Grey tea will warm your heart as it bobs in the heart-speckled mug. (mug $23, infuser $12, heart-shaped stackable tins $6/each)
Harney & Sons created a lush, chocolatey tea especially for Valentine's Day, but the American company's flowery green teas make excellent romantic gifts as well. Jane's Garden blends green tea with roses, and $1 from each sale supports breast cancer charities. From $9; harney.com
Heart-shaped ramekins aren’t just for Valentine’s day. This high quality, durable (and cute) stoneware can bake at high temps, store desserts in the freezer and even go through the dishwasher, making it a year-round kitchen super tool. Valentine’s Day idea: Don’t just give your sweetheart the ramekins, bake them a chocolate soufflé in these for extra points.
