Express Your Love, Go MAD for Valentines!

New York, NY (January 23, 2009)

February 14th is Valentine's Day, a time beloved of romantics. With all its charisma and magnetism, Valentine's Day brings out the vibrancy of love and is the perfect occasion for romantic proposals, a special date and to shower a loved-one with matchless gifts. Offering a myriad of special offerings to express your love, The Store at MAD offers many romantic gifts ideas specifically for Valentine's Day:

Chuck Boux's hand-blown Glass Kisses, varying in vibrant colors and different sizes, or Curneo Furnace's Heart, using classic Italian glass blowing techniques, are perfect small gifts. The small glass kiss costs $9, the large one $14. The Small Heart costs $36, the Medium Heart $45 and the Large Heart $62.

For the serious giver, Silvia Uhlenbruch's Gold Vermeil Necklace, Pin or Earrings or Randolph Somers's Silver Necklaces are wonderful gifts. Silvia Uhlenbruch is recognized as one of Germany's leading jewelry designers. She recreates and uses old and lost techniques, reinterpreting metal into contemporary design. Each piece of Randolph Somers' jewelry begins its life as a tiny soapstone sculpture before he casts selected pieces in precious metals, turning stone into silver and gold. Uhlenbruch's Necklace costs $740, the Pin $648, the Earrings $425. Somers' Silver Necklace costs $460.

Beth Muller's Icon Milk Bottle, hand-decorated with a red heart drawing, or accompanied by a phrase on love, is an extremely sweet gift for people who care for each other. Inspired by her childhood in rural Indiana, Beth Mueller's playful take on the classic milk bottle recalls a bygone era. The Small Milk Bottle costs $28, the Large Milk Bottle costs $44.
