Maybe you like to celebrate Valentine’s Day with champagne and chocolates. Maybe you opt for action movies and some brown liquor. Maybe you completely forgot it was a thing until we reminded you just now.
Either way, 1) it’s coming, and 2) you probably need to give someone a gift.
So here it is, MiMi Miami’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.
You already knew we were going to call it that, didn’t you…
For the gin lover:
Gray Whale Gin, a California-made, consciously crafted spirit, has expanded distribution to Florida. Gray Whale Gin was founded in 2018 by husband and wife team Marsh and Jan Mohktari while they were on a family camping trip in Big Sur. The gin is inspired by the migratory path of the Pacific Gray Whale. The gin’s botanicals are all organically farmed or hand harvested along the gray whale’s 12,000 mile journey from Baja California to Mendocino. With every sip, the botanicals take the drinker along the California coastline; Gray Whale Gin is truly California in a glass.
For the mindfulness one:
Founded by a dedicated mother-daughter duo, MaeMarie Wraps are individually hand strung in the US with 1,800 uniquely sourced 1.4mm European glass beads, making each wrap as one-of-a-kind as we are. Nearly weightless, MaeMarie Wraps soften and conform to your body the more you wear them. The intention-centric wraps gently remind our loved ones to take care of themselves through mindfulness, set personal goals and intentions for the new year.

Miami’s Phuc Yea brings you this exclusive scented candle, which, according to the restaurant “Smells like Steaming Spiced Smoked with an Afternoon Toke.” The cardamom, cinnamon, clove, star anise, and cannabis-inspired scent is made of virgin coconut soy with no toxins, chemical and it’s cruelty free.
