While sweet treats are always in fashion, perhaps you’re looking to move past the sugar and score something new and interesting for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. These color rich brands bring a different flavor that’s memorable, with great marketing to boot. Our three favorite brands this month:
The Bouqs Co.
Venice, CA based The Bouqs Co. has changed the game and upped the design ante to deliver fresh, fashion forward blooms at great prices. It took an upstart to innovate past carnations, mums and baby’s breath. Consumers had come to expect ultra boring arrangements online, but that’s not what you get at The Bouqs Co. Flowers come direct from carefully chosen suppliers for a flat (and very reasonable) fee. I’ve placed three separate orders with Bouqs and love their service, selection and sophisticated arrangements.
The luxe cotton and ohhhhhh so cozy jammies by Sleepy Jones had us at hello. Andy Spade (yes, of Kate Spade fame) started the brand to bring stylish loungewear to the mainstream. Classic silhouettes and clever designer collaborations, like the cheerful collection we featured by John Derian, are brand signatures. Prices range from $48 undies to a $348 satin tuxedo nightshirt. Special occasions deserve a little splurge.
Truly unique, in fact, one of a kind, LA-based RAREFORM repurposes discarded billboards into colorful wearables. What was once destined for a landfill becomes a durable base for surfboard bags, duffles, totes, wallets and more. Laptop sleeves start at $34.95, backpacks at $49.95.
