Spend A Little More (Under $100)
If your budget has some flexibility, consider a gift with some lasting power… something you know your Valentine will enjoy over and over again. Bonus points for something you can enjoy together.
You don’t need to date an outdoorsman to give this ENO DoubleNest Hammock from REI. He can set up the high-strength lounger in his backyard — or his living room! For $64.95, you’ll have a romantic spot to relax together, sip some wine and gaze at the sunset.
Work up a sweat on Valentine’s Day with a portable Table Tennis set from Crate & Barrel for $39.95. The retractable net extends to 48 inches; paddles and balls are included. Challenge him to a friendly Valentine’s Day game — loser treats for dinner. The Up wristband by Jawbone will keep your Valentine healthy and happy, or at least put him on that path. The sports bracelet includes motion sensors to monitor his sleep patterns, daily activity and workouts, and a free iPhone app to track it all. The $99 price tag seems like a small price to pay for his well-being.
