The Mood for Love

Love, lust … and that’s just the high we get from shopping! Treat your lady friend to one of these fun Valentine’s Day gift ideas.


Hot Stuff works on a candy heart when you’re 8, but the Sweetheart eye shadow palette ($12) has less sugar. Inside, pinks, silvers and mauves have cute names like You Baby and Heartbreak Hotel. Blush, Kahala Mall, 739-6200.

2.Eco-conscious ladies would love a Bath and Body Trio of lotion, soap and body wash from Bubble Shack. They’re biodegradable, paraben free and locally made. The South Shore Sweetie set ($30) features the refreshing scents of yuzu fruit, tangerine, grapefruit and pomello. For a list of stores carrying the line, see www.bubbleshackhawaii.com.

Star-crossed lovers don’t hold a candle to your romance, of course, but she’ll still savor Hawaii Opera Theatre’s season finale, Romeo & Juliet. A $99 Romance Package will get you two tickets (worth $58 each) and romantic love notes. The performances are Feb. 29, March 2 and March 4. Call the box office at 596-7858.

4. Love letters look so much better on classy stationery, like these cards. They’re hand-stamped on cotton fiber by a company that’s been making paper since 1878.  A set of 10 cards, with white, lined envelopes, is $35. www.dempseyandcarroll.com.

5. Flirty and purse-size, Silky Underwear solid perfume ($11.95) smells warm and tropical. Notes of jasmine, jojoba and vetivert shamelessly encourage her to wear the perfume and not much else. Lush: Ala Moana Center, 941-7400, or Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, 923-5874.

6. If her perfect night in involves a bottle of merlot, a couch and a DVD, she’ll be comfy in I Love You Cherry Much 100-percent cotton knit boxers ($24) from David & Goliath at Ala Moana Center, 973-6302.
