According to the National Retail Federation, $4.5 billion were spent on jewelry last Valentine’s Day and $2 billion were spent on clothing. So believe it or not, shopping for a good girl is pretty straightforward. She is sweet, innocent and classy which makes anything from jewelry to a simple tee acceptable. Online stores such as Forever21 and Urban Outfitters are key when looking for such items. Their affordable attire keeps Valentine’s Day casual.
Lace has been a common trend for your average edgy gal this winter season. Students have been rocking several forms of lace through sweaters, skirts and everything in between. And while most may think that one lace item is enough, I beg to differ. Shopping for a girl who keeps up with what’s in is simple. Honestly, just look around in the hallways and see what her friends are wearing.
You love him, he loves sports. He needs new clothing, you need a gift idea. The girls of Staples view the mix of clothing and boys as one of the most difficult challenges of all. In fact, Gabriela Vega ’18 dreads shopping for Valentine’s Day for that exact reason. “I never know what to get guys,” she said. “They don’t ask for anything and only like sports.” I think almost every girl would agree with Vega’s logic, it was her words that assembled to create the ideal gift for a man. T-shirts, jerseys, hats and scarves for whatever team, build his wardrobe without going too crazy with a super expensive gift.
