With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to take some time to compile a list of gift possibilities for you all. Everything on the list is under $500 and I hope you find something that makes your Valentine’s Day that much more special.

GIFTS FOR MEN:

Movado Bold Series Watches, $295-495
The 2011 Movado Bold Series brings excitement to a historically classic watch brand. In comparison to other Luxury watch makers, the Bold is relatively reasonable at a $295.00 to $495.00 price point. For work or play, this will be a gift the man in your life will wear and enjoy. So this year, give your man a gift that makes a statement.
GIFTS FOR WOMEN:
Romantic, delicate, and unforgettable, Ornamental Things features vintage-inspired jewelry sure to make any woman swoon. My personal favorite of any gift on this list is the Envelope Necklace which actually contains a love note inside. It just doesn’t get any sweeter than that.
If you’re into the love letter theme for Valentine’s, I also found a matching “Envelopment” ring by Gemma Redux on Etsy. For the love note, you can choose from a list of phrases or customize your own love note, up to 15 characters, for an additional $50. The plated brass ring comes in gunmetal, 18k gold or rose gold, so there’s something for everyone.
Sweet and edgy with a touch of medieval flair best describes Dafna Dagan’s jewelry. This Tel Aviv based designer mixes old-world charm with modern elements to produce pieces that are both timeless and intriguing. I am in love with the silver and brass Hearts Puzzle Ring which is actually three rings in one- what girl wouldn’t love that?
House of Harlow 1960
Nicole Richie has a great eye for bohemian chic. Her jewelry is expressive with overtones of tribal elements and a nod toward royalty. The Red Wax Cuff ($220) is particularly stunning as well as the Carnelian Dome Ring ($70). View the collection at Singer 22.
A go-to for any girl, Francesca’s stocks a variety of always pretty, always affordable statement jewelry and accessories. I particularly like their purses and the necklaces are a great addition to any outfit. This spectacular chandelier necklace is only $18.
GIFTS FOR MEN AND WOMEN:
For stay at home lovers:
If you’re in the mood to have a romantic night in, these companies can help ensure that dinner and dessert are delicious.
Omaha Steaks– The filet mignon is wonderful!
Legal Seafoods– The clam chowder is a favorite is our house- it’s totally addictive.
Assortment of sweets from Spiral Diner Vegan Café, Fort Worth and Dallas locations- choose from a variety of desserts: dark chocolate peanut butter cups, pies, cakes, brownies, and our favorite, the chocolate chip cookies.
For spa lovers:
There’s nothing like a romantic and relaxing evening with your loved one. Some of the local spas even do chocolate facials and/or chocolate body wraps! If body wraps aren’t your thing and you prefer traditional massages, Massage Envy is a great place to start.

From February 10-13, you can treat your sweetie to a Dallas Symphony concert of Love Themes, featuring works by Wagner, Strauss and Shostakovich.
