Valentine's Day Gifts






Luxuriously retro, a sparkling hair comb by Chanel is bejeweled with glass stones. $2,995 at Chanel boutiques.




Half card, half sculpture, the Ribcage + Heart card by Nathan R. Chrislip is an origami heart with original art on each side that hangs inside a standing paper rib cage (packs flat for mailing). $9 at xlessthan3.com.




DEBO superheroes by Kamibashi are handmade leather tricks that bestow special "powers," such as the power to have a good hair day, find a job you like or make sure your boyfriend's family isn''t totally insane. $10 at kamibashi.com.


A USB port by Suck UK that resembles an old-fashioned cassette tape lets you make a music mix for your Valentine to download. $20 at Henri Bendel in New York, (212)247-1100.

I'll take a Big ol' box of chocolate... but I know I won't be getting anything...

You probably can't go wrong with the standard roses ... a dozen. Box of chocolates were in pre-recession. But flowers always stay in style.

We have never celebrated Valentine's day. When we met it didn't exist and then we forgot. Anyway it's not so much celebrated here in Belgium.

Dear teach Mary,
I don't think my Gunnar will go for either of these inutilities.
He's inherited our daughter's two last i-pods for computer and car use.
I guess he'd settle for some expensive photo equipment though.
A good thing we don't celebrate Valentine's Day in Norway.
(Except for the occasional flower bouquets or box of chocolate.)
