Ah, Valentine’s day, you either love it or you hate it. But if you hate it because you can’t think of the perfect gift, we might be able to help. Whether you are shopping for yourself, your friends, or the special person in your life, here are a few of our favorite things everyone can enjoy straight from our Gift Shop:

Chocolate: If you want to go the traditional chocolate route, kick it up a notch with the Francois Pralus chocolate bars. These pure origin bars are thick and full of decadence, from the almond to pistachio, we love them all. The price point is higher than your average Hershey, but once you taste it you’ll understand why.

How about the gift of a good night’s sleep? That may not sound romantic, but as I get older, I just want to sit back, breath deep, and relax. Slip into a Peruvian cotton bathrobe lined with plush terry or a pair of silken pajamas, and let your head sink into a luxurious king size feather pillow. Paired with our signature sheets, you can bring The Umstead home with you.

Wine or Champagne: a bottle of our custom blended Pinot Noir or Aubrey Champagne is a wonderful way to celebrate. You can extend the celebration with a Coravin and enjoy not only our bottles but any bottles by the glass without worrying about ruining it for later.

Custom gift basket: Let us help you create the perfect gift basket. Add a few house made bon bons, a botanical spa product, perhaps earrings from Alexis Bittar or candle from Dayna Decker. With a wide selection for you to choose from, we can arrange it all together beautifully for you.

Still at a loss? Grab a gift card and call it a day. Our gift cards come in any dollar amount you prefer, never expire, and can be used anywhere. Let them decide how to indulge.

For more options, visit our Gift Shop. This jewel box of delights is filled with clothing, accessories, artwork, and more. You won’t leave empty handed.
