Street Style | Valentine’s Day Gifts Just For YOU

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and while you may be debating a sappy card, overly expensive flowers and maybe even a box of chocolates, there’s good reason to buy something a little more fun. We have the best recommendations for how to get in the mood for this Hallmark holiday and not getting anywhere near a CVS. But the catch is these products aren’t for your significant other, instead they’re just for you.

Much like our past gift guides, we’ve found the best products available to immediately cart, checkout and enjoy maybe even before the holiday of love arrives. Included in the mix are a pair of stylish wear anywhere/run anywhere sneakers by Brooks (the brand that has been mastering the act of jogging for over 100 years.) Pair them with a fitting accessory, like blush-inducing cherry bomb socks, or even better, a complete subscription to keep you covered for the full year.

If you’re interested in showing a little leg (wink), the pastel Amphibious 17″ Boardshorts by Barney Cools are definitely a solid way to go, or – if you want a more stoic iteration – try the Slow Jam Henna Shorts by Rhythm, inspired by 70s music and culture.

Layer it all on together, along with some slick, rose colored glasses by Epokhe, and skate into the sunset on your new Penny cruiser. Or, just over to the restaurant where dinner reservations await you. No judgement either way.
