SPOT GPS Messenger – Show both that you care about your Valentines safety and that you are interested in their travels. The Messenger not only sends a distress signal, it also sends “I’m Okay” messages geo-tagged with a location and a link to an online map. My parents love to follow my track on their topo maps when I travel and it really makes me feel special. $169.99
GSI Stemless Wineglasses – These stemless self-righting glasses are perfect for a romantic evening in the outdoors. I love their ad copy, “As alcohol’s effects become more pronounced with every additional foot of altitude, holding one’s drink can become a real problem. Fortunately, GSI has created these cleaver, self-righting, stemless wine glasses which will help to keep your Merlot and your merino separate, even above 10,000 ft.” Made of stainless steel. $9.95
