Metro Man & Metro Home

LAFCO NY’s House & Home Candle Collection has something brilliant for Valentine’s Day this year, whether you’re celebrating with one special person at home, having a party, or giving a gift: Fresh Cut Gardenia Mini Candles or a Grape Hyacinth candle. Spike Lavender and Daffodil are lovely too, and for kitchen: Cilantro Orange, Rosemary Eucalyptus, and Sage & Walnut. The “Minis” in the House & Home Collection come in sets of three and burn for 20 to 25 hours; they’re larger than a votive candle and truly elegant. Find these at the Santa Maria Novella store in Nolita at 285 Lafayette Street or online at

This year, craft homemade Valentine’s Day cards with i-Pezzi’s Bell’Invito stationery, which is derived from recycled materials and features more than 80 pre-cut printed and silk-screened designs (40 exclusive to Bell’Invito). I-Pezzi means “the pieces” in Italian, the language of amore, Florence and Vespas. Tell your loved ones how incredibly important they are to you on this affordable heirloom stationery. DIY is so romantic. Visit for more information.
