Last week I shared my “Favorite Five” Valentine’s Day gift ideas for ladies. This week I thought I would share with you three of the gift ideas I am currently looking at for my Valentine. I hope this is one of my blog posts that my sweetie doesn’t read!
Typically, the ladies are the ones that reap the rewards of the holiday, but we can’t forget about the men in our lives girls!! They need to feel special too.
My first choice is Hermes – Terre d’Hermes. When I think Valentine’s Day, it makes me instantly think about giving or receiving perfume/cologne. That is why I chose this as a possibility for my Valentine. This scent is truly fantastic. I actually received a sample of this cologne last year when ordered something for myself (naturally) from Hermes. I gave it to my boyfriend thinking, well that will end up in the back of his bathroom drawer never to be seen again. I was totally wrong about that. He actually really liked the smell and wore it frequently until it ran out. For me the smell is exactly as it is described by Hermes, woodsy. It is unique and not like the many other colognes that to me tend to all smell the same. Great one to add to the gift options ladies. I have linked you to Nordstrom to view. It is available on their website in three sizes that range from $85(1.6 oz) to $190(6.7oz).
My second choice are these ridiculously fantastic octopus cuff links. I’m sorry but how fabulous are these?!?!?! So cute. I am almost tempted to buy them for myself! I have that problem, one gift for you –
two three for me. I found these little guys online at Saks. If you have a man in your life that loves cuff links, or maybe you do, Saks in my opinion has the best selection of fun and whimsical options. This pair are sterling silver and the stone is lapis. Lapis is a semi-precious stone that is known for its intense color. I think that is what initially caught my eye about this set. I love this set as a gift option for something unexpected, but will get a lot of use. The price on this cuff link set is $220. You can also click here for the additional cuff links available online at Saks.
My final choice came to me after our recent trip to Florida. I was putting away all of our bathroom items when I caught a glimpse of his toiletry bag. Gasp!!! Why the hell hadn’t I noticed how much he needed to throw that thing in the garbage. To be honest I almost did. If I choose this last gift option I will be doing just that. Peter Millar is always a site I shop when looking at gifts for my sweetie. I think this is a great gift to buy and fill with his favorite toiletry items. You could even pair this with the Hermes cologne (or scent of your choice) as a great gift set. This bag is the Collection Kensington Shaving Kit. It is a combination of wool and leather available for $128.
I am going to have a hard decision to make choosing a final Valentine gift. I hope I have given you some ideas to help make your decision a little easier. We better make up our minds quickly, we have only only 12 more days to shop! Until next time.
