No matter what kind of woman you're dating, she's expecting a Valentine's gift — and no matter what kind of man you are, you'll forget to buy it, because you're busy, or watching James Woods in Shark. Coming to your rescue: Red Envelope.
Based in San Francisco, Red's a high-end gifting site featuring over 100 for-the-ladies V-Day surprises, from lingerie, to loungewear, to a silver-plated, customizable, handheld vanity mirror -- so considerate it'll convince her that, despite her best instincts, you're worth wearing lingerie for. Naturally, there's jewelry (diamonds, birthstones, etc); or go with the leather roll-up perfect for protecting her jewelry as she travels to exotic locales in search of culture/more jewelry. To please her karmic side, grab her an uber-stylish take-out box of fortune cookies bearing messages like "Your love life is about to take a turn for the interesting" -- which could mean you're proposing, or that your handsome friend Giancarlo is speeding over on his moped.
For the rest of the year: Red's got gifts for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, even babies — because you know that no matter how much better James Woods gets with age, you still need to mark important occasions with thoughtful presents.
