Tina Tang answers your Valentine’s Day questions!
My boyfriend of 3 years has bought me jewelry that I absolutely detest every Valentine’s Day. How do I tell him without hurting his feelings?
At our stores, we encourage our women customers to give us “wish list” ideas which we keep on record. This not only makes the women happy, but it makes the men happy! Do you know how happy our male customers are when they come in with a pre-made wish list, or better yet, know there is a wish list at the store?
At your favorite jewelry store, pick out at least 3 items that you would love to own. Any store would gladly keep that on record. Then, with all subtlety, let your man know that you LOVE that store, and they know what you like there.
My boyfriend and I have been dating for 6 months and our first Valentine’s date is coming up. I want to give him something nice such as jewelry but I want to get something masculine. What can I get my boo?
Do you know if he likes jewelry? Cufflinks are always a safe choice. They are something that are always needed for those special occasion cuffed shirts.
If your man likes to doll it up a little, how about a heavy silver chain bracelet? Chrome Hearts makes very rock and roll heavy jewelry that your man might just love.
I have a Valentine’s date with my boyfriend of a year and thought it would be cute to wear matching outfits to celebrate our bond. What do you recommend we wear to casually match without looking too ridiculous?
Dear Miss Matchy,
Hmmm. Matching outfits… Have you done that in the past? All us strangers don’t need to know about your bond, that is something to keep privately between the two of you. Don’t worry about matching for the romantic evening. Just make sure you look pretty and have a great time!
