Things to Love Valentine’s Day 2012

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and MSLK is here to give you exactly what you need to share the love.

Pantone Postcards

Brighten up your Valentine’s Day by sending a Pantone Postcard! Trend spotters say direct mail will be hot in 2012, so show your love this season by mailing a swatch from the ever-famous designer’s tool, the Pantone Matching System. This box of 100 colored postcards will give you the freedom to send as many as you want.

Support Individuals and Individualism

If you’re not loving solid bold colors this Valentine’s Day, MSLK’s Sheri Koetting has a solution at Felt and Wire called Out of the Ordinary Love. You’re sure to find a one-of-a-kind Valentine here that will knock all other greeting cards out of the water. When you buy from Felt and Wire, not only are you supporting a local artist, but you are sure to get a Valentine that is as unique as your love.

Sleep No More

Macbeth as it’s never been interpreted before, right in the middle of New York City. We’re loving this interactive take on a Shakespearean classic. Wander at your own pace through five floors of an abandoned “hotel” for a truly unique theater experience. One part haunted house, one part choose your own adventure. Running through April.  Get tickets soon, you won’t regret it!

The Meatball Shop

Meatballs have moved out of the spaghetti bowl and into three NYC locations. You’re sure to fall in love with the flavors and atmosphere at The Meatball Shop. With the ability to customize your own dish, these energetic restaurant/bars have made the meatball this year’s macaroon. Vegetable, Spicy Pork, and Reuben are just a few of the many flavors of meatballs on the menu, catering to even the pickiest of taste buds.

Warby Parker
After breaking the bank on those pricey gifts for your significant other, you won’t have to feel guilty about this purchase for yourself. Warby Parker’s promise of “boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear” will have you seeing crystal clear for under $100. We’re big fans of clear vision and pristine design, so Warby Parker is a match made in heaven.


You deserve to get exactly what you want this Valentine’s Day, so why not start by introducing yourself to unlimited music and sharing between friends? With the ability to search for any song and listen to it right away, Spotify makes it easy for you to listen to what you want, when you want. Create your own playlists and share them, so your friends know what’s buzzing in your ears that day.

Love at the Met: Historic Valentines and Paper Kisses
Valentines have been a tradition ever since we can remember, but the Metropolitan Museum of Art is displaying a collection of Valentines and traditions that span over 250 years. Get a pen and paper ready.  You’ll want to take notes on how to create a real Valentine’s Day card after seeing this exhibit.

Who says you show your love only on Valentine’s Day? Pinterest is a way for you to organize everything you love in one place.  We love that Pinterest is perfect for image-driven brands. Create boards with specific topics and share your interests with friends on this virtual tack board of inspiration.
