Stealing It: Valentine’s Day Gift Guide


Two words strike fear in the hearts of men everywhere: Valentine’s Day. Tricky to choose and often expensive to boot, selecting a gift for the upcoming romantic holiday can send a guy running for the nearest balloon-toting teddy bear in a hurry.


This year, let DFW Style Daily pick treats your sweetheart is sure to adore. Naturally, these steals are all under $100, and there’s one to suit every personality.


Consider this your painless alternative to lingering awkwardly in Victoria’s Secret come Saturday afternoon.





For the Stylish Gourmand: Colorful chargers from Diane Von Furstenberg will make any table more entertaining. Pair a set with cooking classes from DUO in University Park, or better yet, whip her up a romantic dinner at home.


Pricetag: $25 each,







For the Vintage Lover: Classic fashion books like the one shown here make ideal keepsakes for vintage-obsessed sweethearts. Not to mention, you can start a new tradition by adding to her collection each year.


Pricetag: $22 and up, Archive Vintage







For the Girly-Girl: The Le Tiare necklace by Catherine Michiels features a pretty bronze pendant and doubles as a bracelet. Gift it with blooms in shades as pale as the necklace’s washed silk cord, along with plans for a visit to the Dallas Arboretum.


Pricetag: $90, Ylang 23







For the Philanthropist: Ballet flats are the newest shoes from charitable footwear company TOMS. They come in a wide variety of adorable colors and prints, and would pair beautifully with a sweetheart’s stroll to a corner café for brunch.


Pricetag: $78.95, Nordstrom






For the Jet Setter: Polished, travel-ready items from Henri Bendel will help your Valentine pack in style for upcoming spring break getaways and summer vacays. The signature flip flops, especially, are must-haves for warmer weather.


Pricetag: $48 and up, Henri Bendel






For the Fashion Obsessed: The cherry shade of this python-embossed clutch by Kate Landry is right on-trend for the season. Give this hot accessory with an invite for cocktails at new downtown venue (we suggest The Chesterfield).


Pricetag: $50, Dillard’s

It’s also the perfect way to justify her love of shopping, her vintage obsession, and the scandalous amount of time she spends choosing an outfit.
