Valentine's Day: it strikes fear into the hearts of kids with crushes and married-fifty-years types alike. Why? It's just a day... Okay, a day fraught with overblown expectations and way too many stereotypes. That's why, this year, we're presenting gift ideas that will really mean something to the recipient and show them that you appreciate them for them. Over the next few weeks, we'll be suggesting gifts for the special someone in your life, whether they're the hunkamunk coworker you lust over from afar, your bestest bud, your new sweetie pie, or the sweet schmuck you've lived with for three years.
The Gentleman Lucky you: your sweetheart holds doors, remembers your birthday and your favorite flower, and has never said anything unkind about your family. He's an honest-to goodness gentleman, and you know he's a treasure. For him:
Dream Big: - He takes care of people - shouldn't someone take care of him? Sign him up for Zebrano's personal concierge service and he'll have professionals on call to help with research, home maintenance, moving, and more - yes, including finding those impossible-to-get event tickets. ($4250 for 50 hours of service.)
Doable: - Make sure that the next time he holds an umbrella over your head when it rains, he doesn't sacrifice his own comfort in the process. A big, aesthetically-pleasing Doorman Umbrella from Brooks Brothers ($60) will make those walks happier for both of you.
