Great Online Shopping for Valentine’s Day 2013

Telluride Truffle: Tops in Chocolate

There’s still time to remember special people—whether it be your sweetheart, mom, dad, son, daughter, aunt or pet—with something from the heart. Distance separates many of us, so sending a little something often takes on more meaning, especially if it arrives unexpectedly.

In this post, I’m highlighting the boutiques featured in the Online Shopping page at BonjourColorado.com. Peruse their sites and you’ll find a great many gift ideas for the loves in your life. All offer 10% discounts on online shopping to Bonjour Colorado readers, so be sure to follow the instructions carefully and type in the Bonjour discount code as specified.

Chocolates, chocolates, chocolates. For extra good ones in a variety of forms—from truffles to chocolate sauce to the best chocolate chip cookies you’ve ever tasted—order a slice of Telluride from Telluride Truffle. Perhaps granny has more of a penchant for toffee. If so, I’ve found the best from Ruth’s Toffee, another excellent confectioner of the region.

Champagne Biscuits from Quel Objet

Nothing tickles a lady’s heart and nose more than pink champagne. You can find some of the finest at Henri’s Reserve and/or order some Bubbles & Bon Bons for yourself. Ah—hhh, ça c’est la grande classe. While you’re at it, I suggest you order some mouthwatering Biscuits Roses de Reims from Quel Objet, the perfect accompaniment to champagne (aside from a kiss, of course). Quel Objet, my favorite online boutique for all sorts of wonderful French products, also offers more lasting gift items such as home and table arts as well as a luxurious collection of soaps and fragrances on their colorful site.

If you’re looking for everlasting, sentimental gift ideas, shop at Alpen Schatz, purveyor of fine European goods, also located here in Telluride, Colorado. From heart necklaces to Old World wooden plaques (great selection for men), there’s much to be sourced here in this boutique specializing in alpine treasures. You can also find gorgeous collars for that special pup in your life. Owner Mary Dawn DeBraie showcases some of the most beautiful—so much so, in fact, that she’s on her way to sell her gorgeous goods at the renowned Westminster Dog Show.

Heartfelt Alpine Treasures for the Ladies from Alpen Schatz

Dogs and kitties alike love the all-natural toys and accessories sold at Purrfect Play, another boutique I feature on my Online Shopping page that also offers a 10% discount.

How about sending someone something to keep them oh-so cozy during these cold winter days and nights? For base layers, tops and more for men, women and children, check out Cinnamon Wear.

Want to put more thought into your special gift? Consider The Autograph Source, an Aspen-based gallery and online boutique, that sells some extraordinary gift ideas, all signed by renowned people from sports, cinema, politics and more. They should definitely be able to help you with that often hard-to-please man in your life. Aren’t ladies so much easier to shop for than men?

So go now to my Online Shopping page, peruse my more detailed descriptions of these online boutiques and then click through to their sites to begin your shopping. Be sure to remember to type in the Bonjour code to receive your 10% discount.

Here’s another gift idea full of love:  give someone a year’s membership with MedJet Assist, the world’s best medical evacuation service. (Just think of your beloved and all of his heli-ski/surfing adventures.) As a Bonjour Colorado reader, you also receive a 10% discount. Note that that discount is already built into the MedJet information provided here.

Whatever you do, remember to cherish and show appreciation for those near and dear to you. Cards and phone calls are great, too.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
