Gifts for Your Significant Otter

Valentines Day Otter

Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays when we all feel pressured to get a gift that will beat all other gifts that have ever come before. To avoid anxiety and last-minute sub-par gift buying, plan ahead and get your loved one(s) a gift they will love.

Sweets and Treats

Think outside the chocolate box this Valentine’s Day with a gift of something your loved one will love (other than you, of course). Check out the goods at Freestone Artisan Cheese company in Freestone. Who doesn’t love some artisan cheese, gourmet meat, or olives with a bottle of their favorite wine? They’re open Friday through Sunday 10am to 5pm. Or, you can never go wrong with a box (or two) of delicious chocolate (link my candy shops article here).


Sonoma Loop is a fine women’s clothing boutique located in Sonoma that offers designer apparel, accessories, and extras for women. Their accessories include belts and jewelry as well as Henné Organics (a thoughtful gift for anyone who wants nourished lips.) Not only will you feel luxe shopping here, your loved one will appreciate the beautiful gifts you give them.

For the men, Louis Thomas is a men’s fine apparel boutique that carries stylish, well-made clothing. They have a location in Petaluma so you can pick up formal, sport, and custom apparel for your loved one this Valentine’s Day.


A perfect gift for everyone: candles! At Sonoma Pinery in Sonoma you can make the perfect gift for your Valentine. Start with a custom candle(s), pick the finish (metallic, neutral, unfinished wine bottle, etc.). Then, choose up to 3 different scents you want in the candle. Voila! Not only will you give your loved one something that will bring them joy for hours and days after Valentine’s Day, but it’s something made from your heart with them in mind. What could be better?


Flowers are a great go-to gift. This Valentine’s Day order an arrangement from Dragonfly Floral in Healdsburg that is specially crafted to wow. Choose from one of their six pre-made arrangements for Valentine’s Day or stop by the farm to grab and go. They grow most of the material they use for the arrangements which means they’re all one-of-a-kind and you are supporting an awesome business.

Don’t get caught just at Target or Walmart this Valentine’s Day, Sonoma. Choose a gift that comes from the heart – a gift with extra care and thought put into it. Your loved one will thank you.
