Um, yes. You read the headline correctly. Same-day delivery service WeDeliver has teamed up with local businesses—including Wicker Park's lingerie and sex shop G Boutique—on some quirky Valentine's Day packages.
Dubbed #WeDeliverLove, the service offers three packages that you can have delivered to your Valentine on the day and time of your choosing.
The packages feature goods from seven local businesses in total. The "Pamper Me" package ($150), for example, contains a $100 gift card to Pretty Quick for any spa treatment, as well as a gift card to Noble Grape and a box of chocolate truffles. The "Breakfast in Bed" package ($60) includes Glazed and Infused donuts and more; and then—this is the one you were waiting for—there's the "Sweet and Sultry" package.
Okay, so it contains a gift card for G. Boutique rather than goods from the store, but there are two cupcakes in the package to sweeten the deal. And if you need some help using that gift card, here's what a store staffer had to say: "Our top toy sellers for Valentine's Day are the We Vibe 4 ($160) and the Pico Bong Ipo Finger Vibe ($45)."
