If you are anything like me you’re dreading Valentines day and the thought of spending it alone, save for the box of chocolates your boss gifts you. Or, you’re one of the lucky ones — part of a blissfully in lovecouple — but short on time, and you’ve waited to the last-minute to buy your sweetheart his gift. For us in the first group, I say, “Be your own Valentine. Treat yourself to what ever you have been coveting – celebrate the wonderous, remarkable you!”
For the latter, I’ve curated a guide to gifts he’ll adore and remember for some time to come. They encompass a variety of price points and were chosen to celebrate the longtime love, the hot new romance, the we-are still just-friends man in your life and for the girl who needs her man to make the move or else…
For the I’m not sure girl, I’m lovin the Shipley and Halmos Graph Check Plaid Tie — perfect for you to entice your man into spicing up his wardrobe — or the J Crew Suede MacAlister Boot — he can wear and remember (you) them for years . Whether spicing up your bedroom life or enticing your man into a new level of relationship, The New Edition Naughty Weekender Kit from Lover’s Choice will heat things up. The kit includes chocolate warming massage oil, sizzling body candy, sensual body balm, satin eye mask, four mood setting tealights and a spinner game.
