V-day-900

Like it or not, the status of Valentine’s Day as a Hallmark Holiday is irrelevant. It doesn’t matter if we believe that because she doesn’t. Even the most frugal, “I don’t want chocolates and flowers” types secretly want to impress their co-workers with stories of romance and intrigue. Gentlemen, you’re not savages, so give her what she wants. This is everything you need to dress it up a bit for a night on the town, an escape to a hotel, or just some quality alone time. Just remember, don’t screw this up or she might forget about Steak & BJ Day next month.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
