No one likes getting the same gifts year after year. No, this isn’t about getting the same holiday-themed sweater for the fifth Christmas in a row (thank you, Grandma) this is about the paltry boxes of chocolate and limp flower arrangements that are consistently given as romantic tokens of affection on Valentine’s Day. One of the better things about this holiday is that it offers endless gifting possibilities. Who ever said that red roses and paper cards were the way to one’s heart?
A priceless gift has no expiration date, and doesn’t come with a complimentary plastic vase. Instead of relying on old traditions of the past, why not do something new to surprise our partners? For those of us who aspire to give our significant others a gift that recognizes their style, originality and success – check out these lavish, yet practical V-Day gift ideas below.

Wool is in!
February is one of the coldest months of the year, and any jacket or coat you own is put to the winter test. If a jacket doesn’t cut the muster, you feel every wind chill like a 1,000 knives. This V-Day, consider getting your S.O. a Hugo Boss wool coat. According to GQ Magazine, the Hugo Boss wool coat is a top 10 winter coat. Consider the ‘Shawn’ Wool Blend Overcoat. This black men’s overcoat has a sublimely tailored fit and with a raw-edge texture. This warm and sumptuous winter coat will protect the wearer from the cold and pair nicely with a sleek maroon winter scarf.
It’s not so difficult to understand why flowers and candy no longer cut the V-Day muster. Giving the gift of luxury far surpasses anything a wilting flower can do. This Valentine’s Day, surprise your partner with a gift that will last forever.
