Valentines for your Valentine

Here are suggestions to please all the Valentine’s on your gift list courtesy of The Three Tomatoes (www.thethreetomatoes.com), a lifestyle guide, e-newsletter, and web site for “women who aren’t kids.”

ShutterBall Takes Perfect Selfies.  Yes, now that the term “selfie” is official, we could use one that doesn’t show our arms, isn’t fuzzy, and takes more than a head and shoulders shot. That’s why the ShutterBall from Audiovox is terrific.  This $25.00 gadget is a remote wireless shutter release triggered by an app that helps frame a larger shot (you can easily snap group photos from up to 60-feet away). The gadget is small enough that you can loop it onto jeans, a bag, or a key chain, and its pre-installed battery lasts up to five years. www.myshutterball.com/

iPhone Necklace. This uniquely designed Vanesa Rey Necklace Case combines a detachable jewelry-grade chain with a slim wallet to keep credit cards and cash protected and close at hand. For $99.00, the Necklace Case’s open-faced design provides immediate access to the iPhone’s home screen. www.vanesarey.com

Downton Abbey Wines. A Lord and a Lady can make the perfect Valentine’s toast with a $14.99 bottle of wine from The Downton Abbey Wine Collection, featuring two enticing blends from the Bordeaux region of France. There’s a “Blanc” white wine and a “Claret” red wine, both created by Grands Vins de Bordeaux, a family-owned Winery with more than 130 years of winemaking experience in the prized Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux, France. Now if only we had Mr. Carson to serve them! Available online at www.Wine.com and www.DowntonAbbeyWine.com, and at specialty wine retailers and supermarkets nationwide.

Say It With Rosemary. Forget the roses — bring the garden indoors by sending your Valentine a beautiful Rosemary Topiary. Lovingly grown in the warm California sunshine, each $49.95 plant is pesticide-free, safe to cook with, and delicious to eat. www.surlatable.com

Fragrances for a Cause.  We love this line of delightful 100% natural and non-toxic fragrances which benefit three wonderful charities.  Ten percent of the net sales proceeds will be donated to three charities — Empower sales will benefit Guiding Eyes for the Blind and children with autism, Envision proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and Together’s sales go to the Cancer Support Community. Don’t you love gifts that give back? www.pourlemondeparfums.comfragrances

For Breaking Bad Fans.  Your Valentine will love the Official Breaking Bad Heisenberg hat, as seen on the nefarious Walter White. This $149.00 black pork pie hat is crafted of the finest-quality 100% wool felt from Rambouillet sheep in Texas. www.goorin.com/heisenberg-hat
