Valentine's Picks for G&G Mercantile + Co.

I think G&G Mercantile + Co. is tops. It's Garden & Gun Magazine's online store, and we're thrilled to offer our exclusive Bourbon Decanter and Glass Set there. The decanter says Bourbon, and the glasses say Neat, On the Rocks, Old Fashioned, and With a Twist!

We did a little pop-up shop for their annual Jubilee down in Charleston (my husband, Willy's, hometown) in December, and it was fantastic. So I was super happy to get to do a little virtual shopping from their offerings for Valentine's Day. Among my picks? Pappy & Company's Bourbon Barrel Aged Pure Maple Syrup and chef Edward Lee's book, Smoke & Pickles. I remember him from when I was about 22, working in SoHo and going to his restaurant, Clay!

GIFT GUIDE: GIFTS FOR YOUR SUPER COOL FRIEND WHO ALREADY HAS ANYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF

Hi, again! Have you started holiday shopping? OMG. I haven't bought one thing!! But we sure have done some research if you want to crib our notes. 

Here's a collection of awesome prezzies for your girls. Stuff she likely doesn't already have and is as awesome as she is. Some pretty polish – pair it with a mani/pedi gift certificate if you wanna be super sweet – some radical jewels at all pricepoints from our collection, our fave MZ Wallace bag that we tote everywhere (no pun intended). You'll also find a super cute hat from our friends over at In God We Trust, a kick ass pillow from the amazingly curated Studio Four NYC shop, The Market, and last but not least, a flower crown from Love & Victory's own Kerry Ann Stokes. I ordered mine for New Year's Eve already.

And without further ado...
