If your like me, you appreciate Valentines for what it's about, but the commercialism of the holiday has ruined the romanticism of it all. So I am not one to go all out for one day out of the year just because it is declared as a day of love. But I do love celebrating just a little! Who can resist pink cupcakes and cute love letters! Here are some things pour homme that I think make Valentines Day extra special without breaking the bank!Southern Tide Skipjack Mini hat $20. I love a guy with a hat in the summer, I love the white version of this hat and for $20, why not? Southern Proper has a similar hat for $25, but for some reason the little blue fist appeals more to me!When all else fails, I turn to Brooks Brothers. They are reliable, you know they have impeccable quality, anything you purchase from them will arrive on time, and your guy of the moment (or let's hope longer!) will be sure to love it. Plus like some brands, Brooks Brothers bow ties are only around $50, which is a pretty good price in my eyes!And for the "fratty" man in your life, the good ol' engraved flask will be sure to please him. You can get the one picture from Things Remembered for just $30.
I'm loving Orvis's watch box. It's perfect. Personalized, check. Quality, check. Tasteful, check. Great price ($50), check. I'm thinking even I'd love one of these.I'm not exactly an advocate of cigar smoking or any type of tobacco use, but some men enjoy a cigar every once and a while, so why not get him a cigar humidor. The one above is from redenvelope and is only $50.I just love this idea of his and her keychains. Put them together and they make a heart. Take them apart and they are bottle openers. Are they trying to tell us something? I think yes. $30.
What are you getting your valentine for the special day? I'd love to hear about it, I'm always looking for new ideas! Have a great day!
