Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her and Him

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts. While we’re certainly not above giving boxes of chocolate or heartfelt cards, we are inclined to raise the bar with gifts that will stick around long after February. From a heated camp chair to keep your loved one warm and cozy to a quad sensor outdoor watch that will stand the test of time, we’ve put together a collection of thoughtful and useful gifts to celebrate that special person in your life.

Groove Ring

Whether you’re Valentine’s Day takes you to the ocean or on an adventure in the mountains, bringing along your wedding ring puts it at risk for the possibility of damage. Salt water corrodes metal and dulls diamonds, so even a relaxing beach vacation could cause serious problems with a traditional wedding ring. And if you think damage to your ring is bad, get this – your ring could also put your finger at risk! If your metal band happens to snag on anything it could cause serious injury called “ring avulsion.” Don’t google that one… trust us. Which is why a Groove Ring makes the perfect gift to provide men and women with a safe, durable alternative to traditional metal rings. Let your ring break, not your finger. Groove Rings come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes and are even customizable. MSRP Varies groovelife.com

Victorinox Wine Master

Valentine’s Day wine deserves a tool that was crafted with mastery. The appealing feature of the Victorinox Wine Master is its extra-long corkscrew. With five coils that helps prevent cork breakage and riveted firmly in place, it is ably assisted in its main task by the equally innovative combination tool. This can be used as a bottle opener, but above all as a double lever for uncorking. It’s a familiar technique that’s encapsulated in the design of classic sommeliers’ tools. Once the screw has been twisted into place, the first lever is placed onto the neck of the bottle. The pressure applied at this stage loosens the cork and starts coaxing it out just a little. The second lever is then used to smoothly and effortlessly extract the cork entirely from the neck of the bottle. To preserve the sharpness of the main blade – which, after all, still needs to cut the baguette, cheese and assorted hors d’oeuvres – the Wine Master is also equipped with a short and curved, wavy-edged blade for cutting and removing the foil on the cork. Together, these three provide the perfect prelude to the main joy of savoring that Valentine’s Day wine. MSRP $179.99 victorinox.com
