Objets D'Love: Assembling as many fascinating kitchen-esque love items and talking the photographers into arranging them in an artistic display has become a Gourmet V-Day tradition. Of note, the Equinoxe dark chocolate selection, "the best chocolate in the world," says Janet Ostrow of Premier Gourmet in Kenmore. The scent of the red candle: Sex on the Beach, believe it or not, also at Premier. The heart-version of the famous marshmallow Peeps (remember when Gadgets lined up rows of bunny Peeps military-style one Easter?) may be among the top 10 confections ever made. The heart-shaped drain strainer, the "Bad Girl's Guide" ("Once you light the badness fuse, you'll start to hear the muse") and "All About Us" question book for couples ("What scared you about your parents' marriage as a child?") are available at Willis & Lowe. The V-Day M&Ms you can get at a drugstore. All prove, once again, love (and a few sweets) is the answer.
