What are you doing for your sweatheart for Valentine's Day? How about a Vermont Teddy Bear or a romantic weekend getaway in Vermont?
For the ultimate in luxury check out Twin Farms, an "an intimate country hideaway set amid 300 acres of meadows and woodlands in an unspoiled valley, 15 minutes north of Woodstock, VT." Besides all the other superlatives, Twin Farms has one of the best reputations in the Northeast for its natural, local organic cuisine. After dining you can indulge in a luxurious spa treatment before retiring to your own private suite or cottage. Rates are all-inclusive and start at around $1500/night or $43,000 if you'd like to rent the whole place.
If that's a bit over your budget or you're not able to travel out of the city for Valentine's Day, here are a couple other gift suggestions. How about Vermont Teddy Bear's Big Hunka Love Bear? It's made right here in Vermont and the company is involved in many charitable initiatives in the local community and beyond.
In the organic and fair trade department, we have Lake Champlain Chocolates Organic Chocolate Truffles, fresh all natural chocolates, made in Burlington, Vermont. And Laughing Moon Chocolates made in Stowe, VT with locally sourced products whenever possible.
Now if you REALLY want to show up on Valentine's Day with a truly unforgettable showstopper of a gift then I think you might have to consider commissioning Vermont's premiere luxury furniture artisan, Steve Holman to craft one of his Valentine's Day Heart Chairs for the love of your life. We'll post the details about this heart-warming conversation piece on Valentine's Day.
