Posted by Stephanie Blanchard on January 30, 2019 9:26:40 AM EST

Love is always in the air at Venezia for good reason. First, couples celebrate their weddings in our ballroom—it doesn't get much more love-filled than that! Second, we make Valentine's Day really special in our restaurant. Chef Caruso plans an amazing dinner menu, and we set the mood with romantic live music. Since Valentine's Day is one of our favorites, we rounded up unique gift ideas and experiences for you—maybe you'll choose one of them for your Valentine this year.

A Memorable Valentine's Card

When you can't find a Valentine's Day card with the perfect message, choose to give them a 3D paper sculpture. Without saying a word, one of these beautiful pop-up cards from Lovepop may just leave your love speechless. And, you're supporting a local business as Lovepop is based right here in Boston.
