Wine & Dine
D’Vine Kailua Wine Bar offers a Valentine’s Day Sweethearts Special for $40 per person. Each guest receives two glasses of bubbly, a long-stemmed rose, choice of panini or small charcuterie, and cheesecake with dessert wine. Reservations required.
Give the home cook a night off when you order Big City Diner Kailua’s Valentine’s Prime Rib Family Pack to go (serves 4 or 5 people and is a deal at $169.99). There’s also a hearty Valentine’s Breakfast Family Pack ($74.99). Both are available Feb. 12-15 and pre-orders are a must. If you’re dining in, there are Valentine’s breakfast, brunch and dinner specials, Feb. 12-14.
California Pizza Kitchen brings back its Sweet Deal for Two package for take-out from February 10-14. The $40 prix fixe menu offers a choice of 1 appetizer, 1 heart-shaped pizza and 1 other entrée, plus 1 dessert. A selection of heart-shaped pizzas can be ordered a la carte, too.
Tempting prix fixe specials also are on the menu at Goen Dining + Bar. The 4-course Valentine’s Day Celebration Dinner, available for dine-in Feb. 13 and 14, offers a choice of whole roasted branzino, ribeye or lobster entree ($80-$105 per person). If you’re the stay-at-home type, opt for It Takes Two to Take Out, a 3-course special, available Feb. 14 only, featuring a 16oz ribeye and seared scallops ($120 for two).
For the sweetheart with a sweet tooth, Baskin-Robbins’ “Conversation Heart” ice cream cakes are pretty darn adorable. They are available in a choice of cake and ice cream flavors and include your customizable message (Be Mine!). Order at least a day in advance.
Whole Foods Kailua is stocked up on heart-shaped cookies! Iced cookies, vegan sugar cookies, bite-size vanilla and chocolate cookies in mason jars and more. Mix and match to make festive samplers for all of your valentines.
Fitness & Fun for 2
KOMO Studio: The pros at Oahu’s premier Lagree Method fitness studio will tell you, “Couples who sweat together, get stronger together.” When you buy one drop-in class for $35, get another one free when you email [email protected] and mention “BOGO Valentine.” In-studio and outdoor class options are available.
If the ocean is your preferred venue for a workout – or play date – Kailua Beach Adventures is offering 25% off a double kayak rental or two SUP rentals when you use the code “Lanikai.”
His & Her Gifts
Family-owned Windward Jewelers is a go-to place for fine jewelry. You’ll find a wide selection of locally designed and made pieces, including Denny Wong’s award winning, nature inspired creations or Windward Jewelers’ signature Lanikai Collection, hand-crafted in solid 14k gold or sterling silver. We love that a portion of each piece sold from this collection is donated to the Institute for Human Services, helping to break the cycle of homelessness in Hawaii.
Jewelry boxes aren’t easy to find in stores these days, so we were excited to discover an assortment of lovely fabric-covered ones in several sizes and colors at Classic Waves Boutique. This newest Kailua Town shop also has barware gifts for him, like sleek sets of lead-free crystal whiskey glasses with granite chilling cubes; decanters; and whiskey tumblers with a built-in cigar rest. Tea-lovers will be thrilled with the shop’s selection of Tea Forté’s exquisitely boxed gift sets, steeping cups and luxury teas.
Lanikai Bath and Body seems to have an ever-expanding selection of all-natural products for women and men. Choose from ready-to-go gift packs for him or her or ask a sales associate to help you put together a perfect gift set – tucked in a complimentary gift box – to match your budget and fragrance preferences.
