HARTFORD -- Connecticut Post Mall has everything you need this Valentine’s Day – cards, gifts, outfits, restaurants, entertainment options and more for all of your Valentines. Danielle Consiglio brought some terrific gift ideas to FOX 61's Good Day Connecticut.
$150 and under
Get your loved one's heart racing this Valentine’s Day with a FitBit. The Fitbit Alta is $129.99 at Dick’s Sporting Goods and doesn’t only track steps but will remind your Valentine to keep moving throughout the day. We love the Alta because for the price it also doubles as a watch and when synced to Bluetooth can show you your text messages. It also syncs with various nutrition apps like Weight Watchers or My Fitness Pal.
After flowers and chocolates, a new fragrance is the number-one choice for a romantic gift. For her we suggest Love Relentlessly by Tori Burch or Daisy by Marc Jacobs. For him, we love Sauvage by Dior. You and your Valentine are sure to love these scents & they will last longer than flowers! All are available at Ulta Beauty for under $100.

We love this ‘His n Hers’ gift from Things Remembered (who has totally upped their jewelry game btw). Styled in sleek stainless steel, inside of each cuff is engraved with His One and Her Only, and you can engrave the outside to personalize them. Get the word ‘love’ engraved for free on any item now through Feb. 14. Plus, get a Shadow Box for only $14.99 with any purchase.

If your Valentine loves Limited Edition cosmetics you have to get her the Maneater Eyeshadow Palette from Ulta Beauty. It’s only $29 and features 8 shades with cute Valentine appropriate names like Passion and Foxy. We also love their Mascara. I’m actually wearing it right now. It’s amazing, and there is a Maneater Event at Ulta Beauty at Connecticut Post today and tomorrow and you get a free gift with any Maneater purchase.
