Shopping for Valentine’s Day can start off looking like this on the Left Bank in Paris…

…then you may pick up a few suggestions when you step into the Heart Gallery…

Find at-home evening apparel including a heart-shaped water bottle to warm you up on a chilly evening…at La Paresse en Douce (rue du Bac/7th arr.). By the way, the shop’s name means ‘lovely laziness’ or ‘laziness quietly’)

Get tickled by this perfumerie’s windows…Annick Goutal at 12, Place Saint-Sulpice (6th arr. with more than one location in Paris)

Be titillated at Sabbia Rosa at 73, rue des Saint-Peres (6th arr.). Definitely has the Oh-la-la! allure, wouldn’t you say?

Christian Tortu’s florist shop possessed a big heart (in more ways than one)…

Another way to take pleasure in this day, by yourself or with others, might be taking the time to walk or have a ‘sit’ in one of the gardens in Paris, if the weather cooperates. Think of this day as a day to show love to yourself, family, friends, companion, lover. To me, one doesn’t just have to look at this day as only a couple’s day.
