Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
Valentine’s Day is not just about someone's sweetie anymore, and trend experts at Catalogs.com observe that a booming $19 Billion in retail spending around this romantic February holiday is spread across many gift categories – from chocolates and flowers to extravagant jewelry and more off-beat gadgets and tech gear. Whether someone is celebrating “Galentine’s Day” with her favorite girls or paying homage to everyone important in their lives, there’s a great gift out there.
“People are sharing this special day – and it’s not just about your spouse or significant other – so our professional shoppers came up with suggestions for groups of people,” says Leslie Linevsky, co-founder of Catalogs.com, “and these exceptional gifts are each distinctive and smart – you can step outside the confines of the every-day and do something distinctive.”
So what should overwhelmed Valentine's day shoppers get for their favorite people? The maverick retail experts have unveiled a stunning array of gifts that will tug on everyone’s heart strings.
Great Gifts for Longtime Loves
Celebrate a lifetime of love with designer jewelry from Gray & Sons, and an 18K white gold pave diamond heart shaped ring with cascading pink sapphires, priced to make any woman's heart flutter at $10,330.
Make that romantic trip into the hot tub even more special with spa fragrances by In The Swim. A romantic couple can soak the week's cares away immersed in Hawaiian Sunset, April Showers, Rain or Tranquility ($10.99 to $11.99 at InTheSwim.com).
Need something for a meat lover? Fiorella’s Jack Stack BBQ has mouthwateringly delicious gift packs thoughtfully assembled just for Valentine’s Day, starting at $67.95.
Young Love, Best Buds or Family Gifts
Matching porcelain treasure boxes with a charming floral pattern make fabulous gifts for a tight-knit group of people; they’re ideal for a bridge club, teachers and coaches, and coworkers. (Thoughtful friends can find exactly what they need at Replacements.com, and they’re even available in sets.)
What about a steadfast workout partner? The Kiss sweatshirt (Boston Proper, $95) is a must. Hidden inside the neckline, this comfy cotton-poly blend top features an inspirational message: “Do what you love, love what you do.” For a treasured early morning gym buddy, this note of affirmation means the world, every time they pull on what is certain to become a favorite sweatshirt.
Claire Murray’s hand-hooked rugs (various prices) are spectacular gifts for that closest confidant, and zZounds.com’s Vorson Leather Flame Guitar Strap in black and red ($24.95) is great for fanning the flames of… music appreciation.
Gifts for Valentine’s Day Brides

- Honeymoon accessories, such as “Just Married” flip-flops, beach totes and bikinis with “Bride” emblazoned on the front
Decadent Chocolates for Everyone

The Purr-fect Gift for Four-Legged Family Members
Valentine’s Day is a great day to honor those who dole out unconditional love – and pets certainly fit the bill. Catalogs.com pet-lovers suggest shoppers indulge a favorite feline with a spectacular Nuvo Cat Tower (Upco.com, $104.50) or a loyal bestie with a Walk ‘N Roll Pet Stroller (Upco.com, $86.95). Although all their gifts are the cat’s meow, Upco has a number of other products for pets, from horses to reptiles, they note.
“Valentine’s Day isn’t just about your ‘other half.’ It’s evolved in a day to celebrate everyone you care about,” says Linevsky. “The best part is showing how much you care by taking the time to find something that’s unique and a perfect match for the recipient.”
