Love, Costco

February 8th, 2008 · 2 Comments

With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, there’s not much time left to find that perfect gift for the perfect person in your life. Here are a few of the highlights from But don’t forget that you can always run in your local warehouse and pick up gorgeous fresh flowers (though the selection gets a little slim on Valentine’s Day, I’ve noticed) or chocolates.

  • Valentine’s Cupid Mixed Bouquet – This is a really pretty mix of pink and white flowers (Gerbera daisies, hydrangea, and Asiatic lilies) with a nice array of greenery, as well. It also includes a vase. Delivery on February 13th or 14th & you must order by February 11th. It’s only $59.99 and that does include delivery, so it’s a pretty good deal.
  • Chuao Chocolatier Mi Amor Valentine’s Gift – For the true chocolate lover, this sweet heart-shaped box is filled with 11 pieces of hand-painted, Venezuelan bonbons and truffles, all in different flavors. At $36.99 it’s not one of the cheaperst chocolate gifts at, but it is certainly a beautiful treat.
  • Kirkland Signature Daskalides Chocolates – If you’re looking for a slightly less expensive chocolatey gift from Costco, look not further, because these chocolates are great! I tried one of these this weekend at my local Costco, it was really great chocolate – smooth, creamy, and a delicious taste. There are 34 heart-shaped chocolates made by Belgium’s Daskalides chocolatier in both white and dark chocolate. They are beautiful and only $24.99 (including shipping and handling), so they’re a phenomenal gift for anyone that loves chocolate.
  • Drive a Race Car Voucher – This is such a fun gift for the guy, or girl, in your life that loves to go fast. You can choose to drive a real NASCAR or full-sized Indy race car at the Jeff Gordon and Mario Andretti racing schools at one of 13 nationwide racetracks available. There’s a little instruction and then you’re off racing…you actually get to drive the car, not just sit in it while someone else does the driving! It’s $299.99, which is actually a pretty good price for an experience like this.
  • Fancy Purple-Pink Radiant Diamond (3.43 ctw) Ring – It’s a little over the top for me, but if you happen to have $260,000.00 that is burning a hole in your pocket and you’re looking for the perfect spectacular ring to buy, this might be for you. Only one available, so don’t dilly-dally! (Yes, you’re probably not going to run out and buy this if you’re reading my blog, but I just had to include the most outrageous Valentine’s Gift I found on Costco’s website.  But if you do buy it, can you post a comment about it, please?)

There are a ton of other thing to get at Costco, so if none of the things listed here seem right, you should glance through their other selected Valentine’s gifts.
