Vday tips for the Gays from a Gay!

HEY GUYS ELIZA HERE! SO, I ASKED MY TWO BESTIES TO WRITE ME A VDAY BLOG AND THIS WHAT THEY CAME UP WITH! I HOPE THAT YOU LOVE THEM. HERE IS THE BLOG VIA MY NUMBER ONE GAY CAL FOR THE GAYS OUT THERE! xo Eliza



Valentine's Day is around the corner and for the gays, this either means agonizing over another year without a man or perhaps celebrating the romantic evening with the one that drives you wild.  Gay, straight, transgender, we all have issues shopping for the ones we love.  I am here to give you a few ideas that may alleviate your gift giving fiasco.

 

:::Mr. Brainwash::: a Frenchman who currently lives in LA, has evolved into a street and gallery artist.  Many of the gays would recognize his pop art through his most recent endeavor, the cover art to Madonna's most recent greatest hits album "Celebration."  According to his website, Mr. Brainwash will be releasing two special Valentines Day prints. Each print is on hand-torn archival art paper and they are signed, numbered, and thumb printed by the artist.  Each print will retail for $100.00.  Act fast gays, because these won't last. Nothing says gay Valentines more than a provocative framed piece of art by an iconic, prolific artist.

Maybe you have a romantic evening set up for you and your boyfriend that requires a sensual and aromatic mood.  Well this candle will definitely set it off.  Coming from famed apothecary and lab, Malin + Goetz, is the 9oz OTTO candle.  It retails for $52.00 and is available at Barneys Chicago.  Let me tell you, it is worth every penny.  The stunning aroma it gives off will definitely heat up your special Valentines night. Otto is a dynamic collection of complementary natural notes combined to please the mind and enhance any environment.  This complex fragrance will take your night to the next level.

Another great gift idea comes from Aveda.  Their professional hair and skin care products give you a fashion-forward look while still supporting eco-friendly practices.  This gift involves the mind, body, and spirit. All things we love to elevate as gay men.  CHAKRA journey can be done with your loverThe Aveda Bio-Energy captures and analyzes an individual's state of wellbeing, according to his or her own profile of the seven chakras. The size, intensity, shape, and symmetry of each fingertip image reveals clues about an individual's physical, emotional, and spiritual states.  The journey ends with one of the self-chosen chakras.  Through aromatherapy and deep relaxation, Grounded, Nourished, Intention, Harmony, Expression, Insight, and Wisdom will become more clear.  Go to your local Aveda Spa/Salon to sign you and your significant other up for a spiritual chakra journey.  It will be a date that you will never forget.
