Love Is In The Air at Santana Row – Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again…Valentine’s Day, when love is in the air! And why not show that special someone just how much you “love” or “like” or are completely “crushing” on them by spoiling them a little?  This year, I’ve hand selected items from some of Santana Row’s newest stores and some that have been a classic.

GIFTS FOR HER

Le Tarte Swimwear

Le Tarte Swimwear - vanilla stripe wide leg pants

Because California winters can sometimes consist of flip flips, tanks and most of all lightweight pants! The Vanilla Strip Wide Leg Pants from LeTarte Swimwear makes for the perfect gift and can be worn all year round. Especially when you head to the beach. (Located next to Gucci)

Lou & Grey – Fadeout Open Cardigan 

Lou & Grey - Fade Out Cardigan

Gift the gift that she can carry around in her large tote, leave in her car or something she can grab on those chilly nights.  The Lou & Grey Fadeout Open Cardigan is versatile and can be worn with jeans, a long maxi skirt and even shorts while looking holding on to the cozy and casual look. (Located next to Madewell)

Flying Lizard – Love Coin Necklace

Flying Liard - Love Necklace

What girl doesn’t like receiving jewelry for Valentine’s Day?  Especially one that spells out one of the reasons you’re with her. The Love Coin Necklace is a great piece of jewelry that can dress up a casual look during the day or bring out your look at night. (Located next to Consuelo’s Mexican Bistro)

 GIFTS FOR HIM

Bonobos

Bonobos - SHIRT_DailyGrind_BoldCheck_Point_RedNavy_category

What guy doesn’t look good in a button down shirt?  I am loving this as a gift for him because it has a mixture of two colors and gets his wardrobe ready for spring. (Located next to Paper Source)

Orvis

Orvis - Primaloft Down Vest

If your guy is a little rugged and loves the outdoors, this vest is the perfect gift that will keep him warm all year round, especially on those cooler spring & summer nights while he’s out camping or out on mountain bike ride.  (Located behind Sino – by the concierge desk)

Scotch & Soda

Scotch & Soda - Tye Emerald Rock Jeans

If your guys is anything like mine, then I’m sure he’ll love a pair of new jeans.  This Tye – Emerald Rock pair is slightly fitted and can be worn with a button down shirt or t-shirt & vest or even both! (Located next to the Kate Spade Store).
