A “Happy V-Day” Text Just Doesn’t Cut It — And Here’s Why

If you really want to ramp up your romantic cred this week, Thornwillow — the delightfully old-fashioned stationery shop inside the St. Regis hotel — is giving you the perfect opportunity. Tomorrow, you can pop into the shop between 12 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to pick up gorgeous hand-engraved cards, hand-bound books of poetry, keepsake journals, or a set of quote-emblazoned notecards in tiny envelopes. Oh, and from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., White House calligrapher Pat Blair will be on-hand to create complimentary Valentine's Day cards to accompany your purchase. Is there anything more endearing than a thoughtful gift accompanied by a beautifully handwritten note? We're swooning already.
When: Tomorrow, February 14, from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Thornwillow at the St. Regis, 923 16th Street NW; 202-552-4742.
