Valentine's Day gifts for your love

Hearts are all the rage in fashion these days, from a Michael Kors sweater that shows the love to heart-studded, well, almost everything. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, any of these designer duds could make a perfect gift. But no worries. If all that’s a bit pricey, we offer some ideas for more traditional (and less expensive) gifts, everything from rubies to candy.

Love hoodie

For guys not exactly
Photo Credit: Ports 1961

For guys not exactly “hearting” the heart trend, Ports 1961 has more under-the-radar alternatives. Creative director Milan Vukmirovic doesn’t shrink from the word “love” — he splashes it on hoodies, writ large — but in Chinese and Japanese, which use the same character for the word “love,” it turns out. Then he gets downright anatomical — a crisp white shirt states “I ‘heart’ you,” with an image straight out of your AP biology class. Alas, these are part of the fall collection, which won’t hit stores for six months. For info, visit ports1961.com
