If you are looking for a unique package for Valentine’s day, we suggest the following (post your own suggestions as well):
Old fashioned Valentine’s day cards: In the Seaport is Bowne Printers offering old fashioned printing press cards.
Holy Cow Bakery cookies: Start by ordering in advance the artisan line of Holy Cow Bakery cookies. A favorite of Goldman Sachs employees who buy them in shops near their headquarters, these are the best chocolate chip and walnut cookies, (or oatmeal and walnut) that you can find.
They are now available on Amazon.
Florist: FloraTech is selling the best roses, straight from Amsterdam, fresh, 70-cm, for $125 per dozen. Tell the owner, Michael Collarone, that you heard about him from DowntownTV and he might cut you a deal.
They are located on 51 Beach Street (212) 941-0021 www.floratechnyc.com
Wine and gifts: Pasanella & Sons gift baskets are loaded with wine and other unique holiday gifts. They are located at 115 South Street in the Seaport (no phone yet).
The Greenwich Hotel spa: The best luxury spa treatment, in our opinion, is found at The Greenwich Hotel spa. Rates start at $180 per hour.
