2014 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

header

The type of gift you give will naturally be determined by the type of relationship you have, but in every case, it’s important to put some thought into it. Paying attention to the little things will go a long way as well. A gift that’s very personal to her will make a bigger impression than the price tag on the gift. That said, you can’t go wrong with brand-name gifts that will make her friends jealous. Here are some ideas to get you started.

The Bouqs Co. Flowers

Buying flowers can be a horrible experience, which is probably why a lot of guys don’t even bother. But what if there was a company that not only guaranteed fresher flowers at a reasonable price, but did so in style? That’s the basic concept behind The Bouqs Co., which cuts its flowers (from the side of an Ecuadorian volcano, naturally) on the day you order and delivers them within two to four days. Fed by pure volcanic snow melt and mineral-rich, pH-balanced soil, the flowers are brighter and can be enjoyed longer compared to other online floral companies. Better yet, it costs a flat $40 for a bouquet with shipping, and there are no annoying up-sells like cheap candy and stuffed teddy bears. Additionally, The Bouqs Co. farms practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming, only cutting what they sell, and offer its workers competitive living wages and services like on-site childcare and healthcare, and adult education. It’s win-win, so you no longer have a reason not to get your special lady the flowers she desperately wants.

Blendtec Designer Series Blender

A kitchen appliance may not be the most romantic gift on Valentine’s Day, but trust us when we say that your wife or girlfriend will absolutely love the Blendtec Designer Series Blender, especially because it means you can focus more on each other instead of food prep. While many people are content with filling up their kitchen cabinets with gadgets that only serve a specific purpose, the Blendtec Blender is effectively 12 appliances in one, including a coffee grinder, food processor, hand mixer, ice crusher, ice cream maker, whole juicer, meat grinder and immersion blender. Featuring a powerful 1560-watt, 3-peak horsepower motor, this thing is an absolute beast, blending just about anything you throw at it… and up to five times faster than its competitors. (Don’t believe us? Check out the company’s series of Will It Blend? videos on YouTube.) It’s also incredibly easy to operate, with six preprogrammed blending cycles and a touch control manual-speed slider. Though the Blendtec is a little bit on the pricey side, when you consider how many different machines you’d have to buy to replicate its various uses, it more than pays for itself.

Reebok Classic Alert: Kamikaze I are back with the same flare and comfort!

Throwbacks are the hot items in sneakers these days, so we were thrilled to check out the Kamikaze I in black/blue from Reebok. Hot on the heels of the Kamikaze I white/black/green launch on Friday, January 17th, Reebok Classic readied the release of the Kamikaze I black/blue on Friday, February 7th.

Lightning struck every time Shawn Kemp stepped on the court. His larger than life persona set a new pace for basketball, and his groundbreaking athleticism inspired a shoe just as bold: the Kamikaze I. These kicks were hot back in the ’90s and they still have the look of a winner and serious baller all day long. That’s because Shawn Kemp and the Kamikaze I have been “A Cut Above Since 1994.” The color combo is sweet and the comfort level of Kamikaze I rivals just about anything on the market today!

On February 7th, Reebok Classic brought back the Kamikaze I OG black/blue at key retailers including Foot Locker, Champs, Jimmy Jazz, DTLR, Villa and reebok.com for $115. @reebokclassics, #THISisCLASSIC

  

What to buy a guy for Valentine’s Day

ties

When picking out a gift for that special lady in your life, there are plenty of options to choose from, whether it’s timeworn classics like flowers and candy, riskier presents like lingerie or more thoughtful items like a day at the spa. But if you’re on the other side of the relationship, buying something for your loved one on Valentine’s Day isn’t quite as difficult as some people would make you believe.

Though ties may seem like the kind of throwaway gift that people pick up at the last minute, that doesn’t make them any less useful. Even men who don’t dress up on a daily basis need a tie or two in their wardrobe, and those guys are often the ones that require the most help when it comes to choosing the right one. That’s where the folks at Ties.com come in handy, offering a variety of styles, colors and accessories that will keep you looking your best.

The company sent us over a trio of Valentine’s Day-hued neckties (read: purple and pink) that we wouldn’t normally think of buying ourselves but actually looked really great with formal and casual outfits. We also got a really cool paper-rock-scissors bow tie that forced us to search on YouTube for instructional videos on how to tie the damn thing – something that every man should learn at some point in their lives.

And the best part is, many of the site’s ties are not only budget-friendly, but they’re also incredibly well made. So what are you waiting for? Give your lady a hint by keeping the Ties.com website open on your computer for her to see, and with any luck, your wardrobe will be much improved in no time. If all else fails, you can always use the tie in the bedroom instead.
