And Soaps

West Newton

And Soaps’ gorgeous hand-crafted small batch soaps & candles look like they were created with holidays like Valentine’s Day in mind. (Have you seen the pink and white Peppermint & Salt bar or these Valentines Day bundles? They’re perfect for galentines and valentines!) West Newton resident and RISD grad Meiera Stern uses her art background to craft soap and candle masterpieces, using the highest quality ingredients available. Cold process soaps are created from local ingredients when possible. Container candles are hand-poured from 100% American soy wax and the pillar candles are a blend of soy and beeswax. Wicks are cotton and burn clean for hours and hours. This environmentally-friendly business takes sustainability seriously--steering clear of plastics and petroleum by-products. Soaps and candles can be shipped to far-away valentines, or picked up in West Newton for local gift-giving.

Let's Glow Esthetic Co.

Newton Highlands

There’s just something about Chelsey Hitt, the owner-operator of Let’s Glow Esthetics in Newton Highlands, that makes you feel completely at ease, even if you’re like us, and get slightly uncomfortable at the thought of esthetic procedures. We think it’s a combination of her utter professionalism and laid back and quirky personality. Most importantly, Chelsey delivers—from facials to brows and waxing, we bet you’ll not only be pleased with the outcome, but grateful her services don’t take a big bite out of your wallet. Valentine’s Day is a great time to visit Let’s Glow Esthetic Co in Newton Highlands, when Chelsey is offering a host of specials on waxing as well as brow tints. Oh, and when you’re there, you may just want to ask about the small-batch, artisanal Meaux Co. skincare product line—perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for others, or to treat yourself.

Antoine's Pastry Shop


This old school Italian bakery first opened its doors in 1954 and is a popular destination for its scratch-made cannoli, Italian rum cake, tiramisu, and pretty much everything else its bakery staff cooks up. On holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Antoine’s production goes to the next level, as it turns out heart-shaped cakes, frosted cookies, cupcakes, and decorated gingerbread men--perfect for treating all of your valentines. Antoine’s cases are already filling up with heart-shaped goodies, so we can begin shopping, sampling, and treating ourselves now—even before February 14th. Open seven days a week, Antoine's kitchen is busy all night long with bakery staff coming in as late as 11 PM and as early as 2 AM to keep up with the steady demand for its goods. Mon-Sat: 7-6; Sun: 7-3

Have you discovered chocolates from Beth Kirsch, the international award-winning, Master Chocolatier based in Newton?
