Valentine’s Day gifts you can find in Fort Worth that will broaden your love language

Text and photos by Meda Kessler

Say it with … flowers

From a massive arrangement to a single perfect stem, florals are still a favorite. While guys tend to zero in on red roses, we think there are better options. We like to send our gal pals peonies or tulips (or sometimes both). Hit up your favorite floral designer as early as possible.

2. Say it with … fire

Ginori 1735’s LCDC Il Favorito candle is made for one who is determined and self-assured. The porcelain container, made in Italy, holds Ginori’s Black Stone fragrance, a woodsy musk. $200, Neiman Marcus 

Say it with … wit and wisdom

Better yet, let John Kenney do it for you with Love Poems (for Married People) and Love Poems (for People with Children). Don’t expect sappy sonnets from the prize-winning author, just an acknowledgement that love means never having to apologize for wearing old sweatpants while eating cold mac and cheese from the pan. $15 each, penguinrandomhouse.com or your favorite book merchant

Say it with … chocolate

Along with flowers, a box of sweets (the good stuff, mind you) is a solid gift. Dallas chocolatier Kate Weiser’s Heart Collection features her top-selling flavors, from salted caramel to cookies ’n’ cream, all artfully decorated. The box is pretty sweet, too. $40 for the 12-piece collection

Say it with … sparkle

Jewelry always works, but if she wants to boost her chakras, give her white crystals. This chunk of rough quartz makes a beautiful presentation nestled in a hand bowl. Crystal, $399; bowl, $28; sold separately at Raw & Pure 

 Say it with … Cupid’s arrow

Reusable Acrylic Sticks, made in Dallas, add a romantic touch to any cocktail. Set of four, $16.99, Domain XCIV 

Say it with … whiskey

If your friends are more the Old Fashioned type, gift them with a bottle of Angel’s Envy. This Kentucky bourbon is aged for about six years and finished in port wine barrels and offers just a hint of sweetness. $45 to $50 at your favorite spirits dealer

Say it with … shoes

Instead of an ill-fitting glass slipper, why not gift yourself a stylish pair of heels. The Twist Chain Slide from JW Anderson features a built-in chain link for a bit of shine. The padded upper is comfy and so is the low, but sexy heel. $525, Neiman Marcus 

Say it with … self-care

A gift certificate to her favorite spa is always welcome. Or put together a trio of products from Milk + Honey. The Pink Clay Konjac Sponge is made even for sensitive skin. The Pink Clay Masque tones and invigorates. Finish with a spritz of Hydrating Rose Mist, which contains organic aloe vera, rose extracts and antioxidants. $8 to $44, Milk + Honey

Say it with … service

Breakfast in bed can be overwhelming, but bring her a cup of her favorite tea or coffee on this acrylic tray with brass handles. $156, Domain XCIV
