Dallas Valentine’s Day Gifts We Would Happily Buy Ourselves

From At-Home Experiences to Romantic Date-Cations, There’s Something for Everyone to Love

BY // 01.29.21

There are all kinds of ways to show love. Be it with food (particularly from a favorite local restaurant), flowers, or the more intangible things in life. But should you want to buy a gift gift, we’ve rounded up a few Dallas sourced options for a practically fail-proof Valentine’s Day.

Tea for Two To-Go from Taschen Library

Of all the afternoon tea options in Dallas, Taschen’s might be one of the most special. Held inside the gem-colored library of The Joule Hotel, the champagne-accompanied service offers tea fare that’s almost too pretty to eat — in addition to, you know, tea — along with a bit of education on the downtown building’s artful restoration.

This Valentine’s Day, you can take your experience to-go (complete with Cultured Cup tea and a bottle of Impeccable Rosé Brut). You’ll also get to choose your own tea adventure: “Naugh-Tea” comes with Dian Hanson’s infamous Butt Book, while a custom “Pret-Tea” cup is paired with a fashion book.

Head to for more details (the packaged tea box is $189) and to reserve your curbside pick-up time.

Eataly at Home

Now that Dallas is home to the first Eataly in Texas, we also have all future holidays easily covered by the beloved Italian market. There is an actual Valentine’s Day dinner box, but the conveniently packaged “Trip to Napoli” is the one calling our name. Also, caviar. All the caviar.

With the slogan “host more, stress less,” Santa Monica-based Casamia was created to help anyone up their tablescape game, a skill that likely came in handy over the past year. For Valentine’s Day, they’ve partnered with Dallas-based Boxed Bites for a “Be Mine!” kit ($53) to help transform your table into an all out love fest — Sugarfina candy lips included. Bringing the celebration home is a gift all its own.

To Have and to Wear

Not many find it easy to justify buying themselves cowboy boots covered in hearts. But, to that same point, not many would ever turn down the gift of cowboy boots (especially from Dallas-based, female-owned brands) covered in hearts.
