Is it just me, or does Valentine's Day seem kinda one-sided sometimes? Like it's allllll about the ladies. And while I am all for being showered with gifts, as modern women don't you feel like we should also be showing our men how much they mean to us in equal measure? So here are some ideas for that super sweet fella.

For one, we've just gotten restocked in Galtani cycling gloves & a new U-lock holster which is a collaboration between Galtani and fellow Victoire brand The Stowe. Made with rich, oiled buffalo leather, The Holster will age beautifully while firmly holding your U-lock in place. The streamlined design allows the Holster to be threaded onto your belt, providing a sturdy and stylish way to carry your U-lock.

25$ each, available at both locations & online

Totally locked it down? This tie-clip by Salvage Jewelry out of Kingston is for you then my dear.

35$, West Wellington location only

This is probably one of my favourite suggestions. And proof that you don't have to spend a ton to show someone you care. 

Patches, 4.95$, available at both locations & online
Lastly, these Ottawa-shaped cufflinks would be a total slam-dunk since coincidentally enough, the City of Ottawa is *actually* kinda heart-shaped. Again - it's subtle, so you're dude will actually want to wear them, but still a little nod to your L-O-V-E for each other.

40$, available at both locations & online
