Framed reproduction of Jim Dine’s Rancho Woodcut Heart ($50, momastore.org)
A heart for Valentine’s Day? Not very groundbreaking, and most guys may need some convincing before hanging it on their wall. Just remember to tell them what Dine once said about criticism: “I’ve never had an easy relationship with critics. I hold a lot of homicide in my heart. If this was another time, I’d be packing a piece.” That should be enough to give this gift some extra badass points.
Keep your guy stylish à la The O.C.’s Seth Cohen with this fleck-patterned skinny silk tie. It’s good for both inside and outside the office . . .
. . . and would look great on your guy with some jeans, a corduroy blazer, and these shoes. Though available only in dark brown, this skate-style sneaker is versatile enough already—working both at a casual dinner and a late-night dance party at the Black Cat.
