Editor-Approved Valentine's Day Gifts for Anyone in Your Life
Spread a little love this February 14 with these fun finds
If Katie Holmes was spotted wearing a Sharkchaser bag, then it’s definitely on everyone’s wish lists now. We love the slightly smaller bucket bag version — it’s super chic and an everyday essential, plus it’s made with radiation-shielding fabric to protect the wearer from the electrical fields and radio frequencies that cell phones emit. Bottom line is, it’s worth the splurge.

You don't have to be on a tropical vacation to enjoy a crisp glass of RUMOR Rosé (although we wish we were on a beach — any beach — right about now). This buzzy wine hails from the heart of the South of France Provence region, and since it hit the U.S. market, it can be found at trendy venues like The Beverly Hills Hotel and The Setai in Miami Beach. Despite its fancy foundation, we suggest cozying up with a bottle at home for under $35.
