While my personal indifference for Valentine’s Day is pretty well-known to all those around me, it doesn’t mean I don’t still like window shopping or perusing gift ideas for everyone else. I have a small threshold for things that are too cheesy, but these Valentine’s Day gift ideas from the buyers at Saks Fifth Avenue are pretty spot-on. And something even us who may be a little less than thrilled over the “holiday” can deal with quite pleasantly. Here, just a few of my favorite picks.
For the young fashionista, go with this Juicy Couture pink leather wristlet; it’s fresh and sassy. I’m always a fan of pink and could see this transitioning into sooo many spring outfits. The quilted leather clutch also has the signature gold-tone Juicy charms.
For the true trendsetting girl, I’m really really into this Alex and Ani Love and Luck set of gold bangles. The set of 12 gold bracelets come with a “love” and a “luck” charm and gold-plated recylced brass settings. The bracelets are expandable so they can fit from 2 1/2″ to 3 1/2″. And the set of bangles is eco-friendly as it’s made from recycled metals sourced from local U.S. mills.
For the fashion-forward guy, I’d go with this hip Paul Smith multistripe leather billfold. While I realize it might be a tad on the bright side for some people’s taste, I think it’s got just the right amount of contemporary feel without losing its masculinity. The multistripe wallet is made of classic calfskin and has eight credit card slots.
For the classic man, another savvy gift is this Salvatorre Ferragamo money clip. The textured clip is available in both brown and black leather.
When I do choose to participate in Valentine’s Day, I firmly believe you can’t go wrong with two things: flowers and jewelry. This Roberto Coin 18-karat white gold diamond “love” necklace is a stunner, and definitely reserved for the true romantics out there. The circular pendant has .75 ctw. If you aren’t so much into the “Love” portion of the necklace you might want to go with:
Something for the gal that loves a little sparkle. This Roberto Coin Baby Diamond Circle Necklace is 18-karat white gold and thediamond circle pendant is suspended on a delicate 16″ chain and has .1ctw.
This is how you know the holiday just not may be for me: I’d flip over a new pair of jeans much more than a stuffed teddy with pink heart attached, any day. So for your die-hard shopper keep it simple and gift her the 110th pair of jeans (trust me, you really can’t have too many). J Brand’s The Deal pencil-leg jeans are a can’t-go-wrong choice.
