Last week, I put gifts for the ladies first (naturally), but we don’t want to neglect the gentlemen in our lives! Here are a few ideas that are sure to be a hit on Feb. 14.
We’re just a couple of weeks away from the most wonderful day of the year (pfft…). I’m really not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day with over-the-top declarations of love. I’m perfectly content with small gestures like our annual heart-shaped pizza dinner, a special beer we’ve been saving, and an intense Mario Kart match. Even if you’re like me and crave a low-key day on Feb. 14, it’s still a lovely excuse to buy a little something for the person you love most: yourself. 😉 No significant other required!
Of course we can’t put a price on our furry friends, but I will point out that Americans love them enough to spend $56 billion on them last year. Just let that sink in for a minute. Fifty-six billion dollars. That obscene amount of money pretty much proves that a pet-centric gift is going to be a home run, especially if it teaches the pet to pull its own weight in the household. (Seriously, it’s about time Bacon starts earning money to pay for his food. He gets more Instagram likes than I do!) And, while I didn’t include it here , this inflatable cat unicorn horn is pretty much the best thing ever.

There are plenty of accessories and handbags that come in under the $200 mark and many of the cutest items come in at under $100. I, for one, would be delighted to find the little travel jewelry box with DVF’s signature lip print under the tree.
