Best Flowers: Sweet Nest Bouquet from Rose and Radish

If sorry seems to be the hardest word, let a Sweet Nest Bouquet from Rose and Radish—a delightful pairing of fresh flowers in a collectible Nymphenburg porcelain vessel —do the work for you. The Hayes Valley retail store recently closed its doors, but its art-driven perspective continues on its Web site, now featuring an online gift registry.

Best of the City 2009: Day

Best Dog Day

The city’s newest doggie day care is the eco-friendly High Tail Hotel, which uses plants, grass, natural light and an oxygen system to re-create the outdoors in its 5,000-square-foot indoor facility. Think of it as a biodome for man’s best friend, a romper room where they get to munch on tasty organic kibble. The best part? You’re not on cleanup duty.
