Valentine's Day Gifts
He Shops, She Shops
Actions speak louder than baubles. Instead try helicopter tours or tango lessons, say our columnists
By ALAN MURRAY and LAURA LANDRO

A Personal Concierge: By the time he's thought to make a reservation for the hot new restaurant or club, get tickets to a play or buy me that bauble for Valentine's Day, it's probably too late. Concierge services offer to take care of it for him. Quintessentially (quintessentially.com), based in London with offices in New York and elsewhere around the globe, offers memberships starting at $1,500 a year and can get last- minute reservations at hot spots, hard-to-get tickets and entry to private clubs. Less pricey: services such as Yourpersonalbutler.com and Finiconcierge.com that charge by the hour for errands like shopping and picking up your dry cleaning. To find one near you try the International Concierge and Errand Association (Iceaweb.org)
