V-Day Gift Guide

V-Day Gift Guide

No matter your stance on football, the Monday after Super Bowl ushers in an important time of year, Valentine's Day!  It's a great time of year to treat yourself or someone you love to a special gift, and it's always extra fun to stay on theme.

A little bit of red goes a long way on Valentine's Day, choose a handbag or shirt with red accents for a nod to the holiday, without getting cheesy.  Or you can really go for it with a red Herno vest - one of our all time favorite, go-to pieces - that can be worn (nearly) all year long. 

When in doubt a gold bangle from Rene Escobar will be a crowd pleaser and another piece that can be worn daily. 

From L to R: Herno quilted vest, Rene Escoabar 18k gold and sterling silver bangle with scattered diamonds & Hammitt cross-body bag. 

Wishing you love,

Valentine's Day is only a few days away.  The sitter's been booked, dinner reservations have been made and the flowers are on order.  But what about a gift?  Whether you're dropping hints to your spouse or shopping for a loved one, we have you covered.

A piece of jewelry is a classic Valentine's Day gift - venture outside the box a bit with a gold necklace that will make a subtle statement whether it's paired with a denim shirt or a cocktail dress.

Although lingerie is a traditional gift, it is also very risky.  Choose a delicate camisole that can easily be layered under a sweater or a blouse instead of something overly sexy.  This will delight the recipient instead of offend her.
