If you want to branch out from the same-old Valentine’s gift for the stylish man in your life, these gorgeous, romantic, handmade Valentine’s Day Cufflinks from Digby & Iona will make all the other dudes green with envy. (Or you know, roll their eyes. Depends on the dudes. Hopefully yours has cool, artistic friends who can appreciate such coolness.)
Each pair of cufflinks is handmade in Brooklyn of oxidized sterling silver and carved with the initials you indicate. If you loved Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree as a paean to selfless love, you’ll be glad to know it was the inspiration for the design. If that book didn’t shake your leaves (ahem), just think of it as a timeless and beautiful expression of your union. Personally, I always worried that carving initials into trees was kind of cruel to the tree, so I’ve never done it. But in silver, on my husband’s navy dress shirt, shooting his cuffs like James Bond? Yeah, that works.
