Ignore the Heart Overload and Get Your Valentine What They Want This Year

Clockwise from left: Alvarez Gomez Cologne, Erica Bralette & Shorts by Only Hearts, Printed Ties, Jordan Air Viz, and Triple Crystal Ring by Low Luv by Erin Wasson.

Right before Valentine's Day, stores (and our in-boxes) flood with gift suggestions in shades of pink and red, some covered in hearts or other patterns composed of love symbols. While that may be festive and romantic for some, a pair of red and white boxer shorts that feature a cupid print can only be semi-comical in the ironic sense. Instead, get your Valentine what he or she really wants in our latest Shop-A-Matic, filled with 120 gift ideas from your typical lingerie to offbeat cards that are more clever than saccharine, including a smattering of pinks, reds, and hearts for the purists as well. Or if you'd rather ignore this lovey-dovey business, browse to get something for the only person who really matters: yourself.

Alvarez Gomez Cologne
Price: $62
Why We Like It: This classic cologne formula features a blend of Spanish lavender, geranium, and lemon that hasn't changed in over a century. Splash it on and imagine you're in a sun-dappled porch somewhere in the Mediterranean.

Erica Bralette & Shorts by Only Hearts
Price: $48
Why We Like It: What's often deemed to be sexy lingerie usually involves scary straps digging into unflattering areas of flesh, but this sweetly romantic set bares skin without sacrificing comfort.

Printed Ties
Price: $70 each
Why We Like It: Vintage-tinged cotton ties with whimsical prints add an informal yet polished finish to a lightweight spring suit.

Jordan Air Viz
Price: $110
Why We Like It: Neon and patent accents make for kicks that are flashy enough for any avid sneakerhead but can still be easily worn by the most fashion-phobic guy.

Triple Crystal Ring by Low Luv by Erin Wasson
Price: $115
Why We Like It: Slightly tarnished with just a hint of sparkle, the ring has the beat up look of a vintage find.
