Valentine’s Day is just two weeks away. Have you tackled the what-to-get-him question yet?
If you’re in a new relationship, this is always a thorny decision; you don’t want to go overboard, yet you want to say “you’re special.” If you’ve been married or living together for years, it’s challenging to find a gift you haven’t given him before…at a price that won’t break your household budget.
Here are four thoughtful Valentine’s Day jewelry gifts for men, available for $250 or less. Look to OBJ next week for five more suggestions for the women on your list!
David Yurman Medium Silver Box Chain Bracelet
From The Chain Collection by David Yurman, this gray titanium/sterling silver bracelet is perfect for the guy who never thought he’d wear a bracelet. It’s subtle and tailored enough that he’ll want to wear it every day (so might you—perhaps on your ankle?). One size fits all; $215 on davidyurman.com, or at a Fine Jeweler near you.
Two-Color Oval Cuff Links
Add sophistication to his dressed-up look with these cuff links made from rhodium-plated sterling silver. Featuring a T-back closure, we show them here in a burgundy-navy combo, but they’re also available in green-navy, ivory-black, and navy-gold. $195 at brooksbrothers.com.
Vera Wang Wedgwood® Debonair Hip Flask
Every man should have a discreet flask for a cocktail emergency. The Vera Wang Debonair collection offers sleek, deco-inspired barware and gifts combining ribbed 18/10 stainless steel and dramatic black enamel. Only $24.49 at bedbathandbeyond.com.
Highly Collectible Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Tie Bar with Horse Head
This classic sterling silver tie bar, No. 65, was made in the 1940s by artist-silversmith Arno Malinowski at the renowned Danish silver company, Georg (no “e”) Jensen. If your man happens to be a horse enthusiast, this vintage collectible has extra-special meaning. (We think it would make a terrific bag charm too, if you want to give yourself a little love this Valentine’s Day.) Available on 1stdibs.com, via Gallery 925, for $250.
Brooks Brothers Signature Tartan Valet Tray with Leather Patch
Brooks Brothers, an American icon, first opened its doors in 1818. Their preppy-but-practical valet tray is a great place for your man to keep track of his keys, cuff links, phone, etc. The handy catch-all features the Brooks Brothers signature tartan with a leather patch (it snaps open to lie flat in his suitcase too). $78 at brooksbrothers.com.
Happy V-Day from all your friends at OBJ!
