How best to express your love? Locally, of course—with these sweet to saucy gifts from around the Hudson Valley. Artisanal, alcoholic, silken, studded or waxen (really), chocolate or blooming, you’ll find it here.
Shop Little House in Woodstock has charmingly tongue-in-cheek gifts for the occasion, including items that fuse the topical with the practical. The Counter Culture Anatomical Heart tea towel ($14) is a pure cotton flour sack towel printed in eco-friendly red ink (pictured), made in the US. There’s also a matching pillow ($44). Or go for gothic, with a one-of-a-kind porcelain skull and heart cup by Michael Corney ($95). Add a dash of bold red with color-dipped porcelain mugs, made in Japan ($28 each). Or, wander into the shop and find something you never even expected; that perfect objet to better house your heart’s delight.
