Valentine’s Day isn’t all chocolates, jewelry and flowers. Functional, everyday gifts can be just as thoughtful as the traditional gestures. Here’s just a sampling of ideas.
Eyewear may be a necessity for some, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a treat. Frames by Mykita or Thom Browne or Garrett Leight are no ordinary purchase. Package them with a Makr Black Optical leather sleeve to keep your specs in good condition for many a Valentine’s Days to come.
You and your Valentine can coast the Downtown streets or pedal one of OKC’s bike trails on a set of bikes from Schlegel Bicycles. No experience is needed to enjoy a bike from Schlegel; their staff will help you pick one for your style and experience level.
Down the street from Schlegel, Plenty Mercantile offers a variety of thoughtful artisan gifts. Their quirky little hardware keychain pictured above lets someone know that you’re nuts about them. Plenty’s selection of lovely greeting cards will help you find a clever way to say Happy Valentine’s Day too.
