Shop Local: Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with these sure-to-please gifts from Bay Area businesses.

EO French Lavender Body Polish, $17

This body polish — new to EO — is a rich and creamy exfoliator that leaves skin feeling velvety-smooth, nourished and radiant thanks to moisturizing pure lavender essential oil and other plant-based oils and butters.

Heath Ceramics Box and Stopper Vase, $295

A mini-vase in two parts — box and stopper — intersects art and function. This textured sculptural piece is art unto itself, yet transforms for playful floral arrangement any which way.
