Book the “Roses for Two” treatment at The Biltmore Spa and thank us later. The hedonistic ritual boasts a 50-minute couples massage using sensual lotus rose oil. The finishing touch? Complimentary sparkling rosé and two single roses. $345, call (800) 727-1926 to book.

Real roses wilt. (Insert sigh here.) But this on-trend LeiVanKash double ring certainly will not. Comprised of pressed coral and gold, this is the ideal gift for accessory addicts. $403, available here.

 

Living in the condo world that is Miami, many miss out on the outdoor grilling experience (no gas or charcoal allowed on the balcony). So let us introduce you to the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill ($79). The nonstick-coated surface with adjustable temperature control is perfect for 15 burgers, grilled veggies and even chicken filets. Perfect grill marks every time, and a center channel that drains fat into a grease tray. A removable stand allows for tabletop options.

For the man who loves his cognac, go for the Tesseron Cognac Royal Blend ($1500). Only 1,000 bottles have been produced in an old-world style decanter. Royal Blend is a selection of 50 distinct Grande Champagne blends and grapes, aged for more than two generations. And when you pour that glass, do so over a Rabbit Jumbo Chilling Stone ($20) that is made of stainless steel, won’t dilute your drink, is dishwasher safe and comes with a storage case.

Nothing like gifting some wine for some romantic sips. We recommend the bright and bold reds from the Toro region of Spain’s Numanthia vineyards – particularly the 2010 Numanthia ($47) and the 2009 Termanthia ($200). This region yields a low number of high-quality grapes, so the wines are rare finds. Rather go with something light and refreshing, then Chandon’s new Delice sparkling wine ($17) – crisp, refreshing and semi-sweet. Perfect chilled or served over ice.

Looking for a gift of food, wine, spirits and savings? On Thursday, Feb. 19 Chef Mike Isabella and Chef Blair Underwood will collaborate at the Private Pasture at the Surfcomber Hotel on South Beach for The Mediterranean Feast where $100 per person gets you whole lambs on spits, a plethora of seafood and loads of delicious sides served along with wine and custom Mediterranean-themed cocktails from 9 p.m. to midnight. Click here for tickets and make sure to use Promo Code “Miamicom” and get two tickets for $175 (a savings of $25).
