Let these products give you a little inspiration, then skip the restaurant and plan an awesome evening, just the two of you.
The Stylish Wallet
The Covert Hickory Stripe Twill Card Case, or any of the tons of other products available at The Hill-Side would make great Valentine’s Day Gifts.

Celebrate Differences With This Book
Self.Styled: Dare to be different, by Anthony Lycett is about “the celebration of freedom of expression, diversity, and individualism through personal style”, something you can probably identify with if you’re reading this. In the book, you’ll find photos of people of a variety of genders, colors, and body shapes, as well as their compelling stories. Our suggestion: read it after homemade dinner with your Valentine. $28.
Fruity, Tasty Beer Cocktails
Früli is a strawberry belgian fruit beer made from a blend of white beer and strawberry juice. Intriguing combination, right? I tried it, and can safely say it’s one of the better fruit beers out there. Our suggestion: Mix Fruli with tequila, triple sec and fresh lime juice, garnished with a lime wheel and a fresh strawberry, topped with orange zest for one of the tastiest margaritas you’ve ever had.
