Orbitkey key organizers
If your Valentine still carries traditional keys but has them on a boring old-school split keyring, do them a favor and get them a brand new Orbitkey key organizer for Valentine’s day. These EDC key holders are available in leather or TPU and come in a variety of colors including brand new seasonal colors: like Sea Foam, Island Green, Cocoa Rose, and Cotton Candy for the leather version and Mist, Graphite, and Tangerine for the TPU version. Both styles of the key organizer keep 2-7 keys secure AND quiet as well as prevent any other items in your pocket from getting scratched up by the sharp edges of the keys. There’s even a place to attach a keyfob.

OpenRun Pro wireless headphones
Motivation is an important tool for exercise. For a lot of us, it’s music that kicks us into gear, or maybe a really good audiobook, and that usually means headphones. You want to hear it, feel it, and let it drive you. But, if you’re running or cycling outside, blocking out the outside world can be straight-up dangerous.
That’s where the OpenRun Pro Headphones from Shokz shine. They use bone conduction for audio which leaves your ears completely open to hear vehicles, horns, sirens, wildlife or anything else you need to be aware of in the moment. Unlike running with one earbud or AirPod, your awareness isn’t lopsided and your music isn’t single channel.
The OpenRun Pros channel best-in-class audio through your cheekbones just in front of your ear. Two bass enhancers round out the sound to create premium, full audio that sounds great while letting you hear all those other sounds you need to hear.
They’re built for athletes with features like IP55 sweat resistance, a comfortable action-specific fit, 10-hour battery life and even a 5-minute quick charge to get you 90 minutes of listening. And because they aren’t in your ear canal or pushing your ears against the side of your head, you can wear them for long sessions without discomfort.
OpenRun Pros are available in 4 colors; Black, Blue, Pink and Beige. A smaller size (Mini) is available in just Black and Beige. It’s about 0.83″ smaller in diameter which is great for smaller heads or for use with helmets. Shokz has a great sizing tool to help you find your fit.
If you’ve got an athlete in your life these are an excellent gift idea for motivation while helping to keep them safe while exercising. How great is that?

A loaf of bread, a flask of wine and thou…
Valentine’s Day is here again, and every year I try to find something different to surprise my wife. This year it is the Firelight 750ml flask from High Camp customized with our personal logo. Now I’m pretty sure I know what you’re about to ask – “Dave, why in the world would a flask be a good Valentine’s Day present?” I’m glad you asked that. Aside from being able to celebrate a toast on this special day with your partner in crime, a nicely designed flask (especially one made yours through customization) can become an integral part of your misadventures throughout the year. Imagine enjoying a Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras parade with 750ml of Hurricanes. Or a quiet evening around the fire pit with hot toddies. Or kicking off summer at the pool with Golden Margaritas. And alcohol is not always a necessity – we’ve even been noticed to fill a good flask with white grape juice and club soda for something lighter. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
High Camp has a winner with the Firelight flask. Yeah, there’s a 375ml version as well, but the 750ml keeps the celebration going. Size-wise, it can hold a fifth of your favorite beverage, a bottle of wine or hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps when hunting the elusive Christmas tree. The High Camp comes with 2 tumblers to share and a double-walled and insulated main container that will keep your beverage of choice hot or cold (depending, of course, on how you started the adventure). Plus you can upload an image and/or text to be laser-etched on the body of the flask, making this undeniably yours (or that significant other’s should you give this for Valentine’s Day). Coming in Copper, Gunmetal, British Racing Green or Stainless Steel, and priced at $125, the Firelight flask is a gift that will have you and your loved one smiling – and enjoying – the entire year.

Comfytemp weighted heating pad
The perfect Valentine’s Day gift includes a warm hug from someone that you love. Here’s a gift that delivers on the warmth part. It’s a weighted neck and shoulders heating pad from Comfytemp. It even comes in a deep red color if you want to go all in on the Valentine’s Day theme. If not, it also comes in grey and blue. I reviewed the larger version of the Comfytemp weighted heating pad last year and I can attest to the fact that it’s still working wonderfully (Jeanne has been using it every day). The outer cover is velvety soft and the built-in heat controller allows you to dial in the right about of heat to soothe an achy neck, or just add some extra coziness while vegging on the couch with your favorite rom-com for the perfect Valentine’s day evening.
