T.U.G Valentine's Day Giveaways: A Pair of TOMS

Photobucket

So our Giivaways continue. And this time we're combining charity and style by giving away a pair of TOMS. Yea, it's still kinda cold outside, depending on where you are it may be very cold outside, but Spring will be here before you know it. And when it gets here, you'll be back on your sockless swag and in need of a pair of TOMS. (Every stylish person should have atleast one pair). This can be a Valentine's Day gift for yourself or your sweetheart— guess it just depends on what mood you're in.

**To win you must comment on this post, comment on our Facebook and/or re-tweet on Twitter The more ways you enter the more times you're entered– increasing your chance to win. This giveaway is open to all countries TOMS ships to or has a store, which is alot of countries (all the major ones plus more, check here to see)

We've perused the TOMS website and made our top picks For Him (if you keep the TOMS for yourself) and For Her (if your give the TOMS to her).

Stone-washed Classics. These are from their Spring 2011 collection, and I really like 'em. You know how we've been keepin' it jeaned up, well these will take that trend further by givin' your soles a denim look as well. I'm thinking this is an easy must for Spring/Summer 2011.

Waxed Twill Cordones. I fancy the cordone style TOMS because they offer the choice of shoe-strings or no shoe-strings and look just as good either way. (these come in ash gray (above), black, and chocolate brown).

Black Stone-washed Classics.

There's nothing like a pair of red Toms, they're classic– plain & simple. You can go His & Hers for Valentines Day with this one since they offer the style in both men's and women's. You could pair these with a dozen red roses for V-DAY.

Every girl likes to shine, and the Gold Glitter TOMS are an easy way for her to do that. Imagine your girl  in dark denim skinny jeans (hepburn style), white t-shirt, navy blazer, gold watch, simple gold necklace, and her favorite bag. I'm telin' you she'll love these, especially if shoe's a shoe fanatic.

And of course she'd love a pink pair. You could pair these with a bouquet of pink and red roses.

T.U.G Valentine's Day Giveaways: Chocolates & Flowers

Photobucket

Try to make her this happy (photo from TV show I Love Lucy). If you're unsure about what to get her, keep it classic with roses and chocolates. Not carnations and a bag of skittles, lol, but the most red roses you can afford (whether it's half a dozen or 10 dozen) and her favorite dessert.

Seriously, there's nothing like the classics. If you do decide to purchase your valentine a unique or "different" gift, it's important to pair atleast once classic element with gift just to be on the safe side (remember our mix of thoughtful and traditional). Well giiv.com is helping us to keep it classic by giving away Roses from TeleFlora and a $25 DeBrands  Fine Chocolates Giftcard. So if you win this, depending on who you're giving this to, you could actually be done with all your V-Day shopping.

Winterized Street Layers

Let's take a quick break from our Valentine's Day Giveaways to see what's been going on in the streets. (via Scott Schuman and Tommy Ton)

Gotta love seeing that classic American style (jean shirt and pants, canvas vest,aviators) on the streets of Milan

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

I really love the drama of this photo. The fitted elegant styling and monochromatic hues of dark blue gives me flashes of the style of the men in the Black Panther Party, like Huey Newton, but with the color navy instead of black. (Happy Black History month, btw).

Photobucket

One of my favorite things to see is the mixing of "types" of clothing. A bubble vest, a more rugged type of clothing, layered on top a suit just does it for me on so many levels.

A Hodgepodge of V-Day Gift Ideas: Tokyo Bay DIY Watch, Kings Underwear, RumbaTime Watches, Etc.

Here's another hodgepodge of Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Photobucket

We meant to post this watch as a great Christmas gift idea, but unfortunately didn't get around to it. So we have our opportunity again with Valentine's Day. Tokyo Bay has a Do-It-Yourself Watch kit that will truly make any guy feel like a man.

The limited edition DIY tool box contains nine quality tools essential for ‘do it yourself’ watch repair, enabling the wearer to become the pro themselves. The DIY watch kit includes two mid size classic watch faces in a cream dial and black dial, alongside four different colored straps in military canvas, sporty nylon and hard wearing leather. Back up batteries and slug pins, which hold the strap onto the watch case, are also included to keep the watch in working order. All components put together create the ultimate in modern hand built watches.

Purchase it, here.

Kings Underwear, we gave away a ton of their stuff for Christmas. And since then we've had a chance to review them ourselves– very soft and comfortable stuff. So if you think your man will be purchasing Victoria's Secret for you, then maybe return the favor and get him King's Underwear.

RumbaTime watches would of course make for great mini V-Day gifts for friends and crushes. Maybe buy a bunch in red, pink, white, and black and just pass them out like the Santa of Valentine's Day.
