Valentine’s Day gifts for him and her

February 12th, 2014

This Valentine’s Day, ditch diamonds and chocolates for something personal and unique – gorgeous furs and manly accessories! It’s OK to veer from tradition when your gift is truly extraordinary and oh so thoughtful. So we’ve pulled together a list of our favorite stand-outs that are sure to leave your special someone speechless on February 14.

 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

This confetti dyed knit fox pull through scarf offers a rich twist on the infinity/circle scarf trend. Your gal will enjoy wearing a fur scarf to accessorize her outerwear garments as shown or pairing it with a sweater to add color and texture to her outfit.  Hints of pink in this fox fur scarf make it the perfect special occasion gift! We also love the styling on this Dominic Bellissimo tangerine wool walking coat, and your lovely lady will too. It’s pictured here with a plaid patterned chenille scarf, mink trimmed chenille gloves and a mahogany mink and braided leather hobo purse.

Thanks to Groundhog Day, it looks like winter is here to stay for another five weeks or so. Gentleman, that’s your cue – she isn’t packing away her boots anytime soon. For wet, snowy days, she’ll love these EMU Australia sheepskin rain boots in classic blue. For something more day-to-day, either of these sheepskin boots with leather detailing are a safe and stylish bet.

A new handbag or evening clutch is another sure-to-please gift idea for her.  The York Furrier accessory collection includes styles from Badgley Mischka, the rustic Rebel Leather line, and York’s own Signature Styles.  Choose from luxe materials – fur, leather, metal or wood; super shapes – totes, hobos, shoulder bags, cross body styles, and the classic envelope clutch; along with eye-catching colors and patterns – start with bold reds, rich greens, metallic gold, staid cognac or black, then add a dash of playful animal prints, lace or houndstooth patterns or choose an intriguing woven rattan.  From really, really BIG bags that carry ALL her essentials to this season’s mini-bags that carry what she definitely needs (ID, lipstick, keys, & cash or credit card), it’s all in-store and ready to wrap-up for your sweetie.

For something different, treat her to a fur restyling. A lot of women have vintage or family heirloom coats stuffed in a closet somewhere – they’re gorgeous in their own right but usually too outdated to wear. Start with a thorough fur cleaning, then, give her the option of turning that old coat into a vest, shortening the hem to a jacket or walking coat length, or removing the ginormous football player shoulder pads that were so popular in the 80’s to create a more flattering shoulder line.  She will be grateful to you for having her older fur garment transformed into a like-new style that she’s able once again wear and really enjoy.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Some guys can be hard to shop for, but ladies, we’ve got you covered! Stick with high-end classics that will last forever and make a strong impression.

Like this leather wallet in a wooden box. He’ll love the look, and you’ll love that he’ll use it every day. For the guy who loves lounging and watching sports (or is sweet enough to let you pop in Pride and Prejudice!) these EMU Australia “Bubba” sheepskin slippers offer the prefect combo of comfort, warmth and stability. One of our favorite male gift ideas is inspired by the rugged guy on the go. This leather satchel is perfect for an office-bound commuter looking for a stylish edge over the average briefcase.
