Style File: Valentine's Day
'Forget me not,' Valentine's Day is less than a week away, and, if you haven't got your special someone a gift, don't fret. In tonight's Style File, 7's Belkys Nerey shows us some cool gifts for the guys and dolls.
WSVN -- Is your honey a Macho Man?
Then pamper your partner by sending him on the Tough Guy Getaway at Spa Terre at the Ocean Key Resort.
Stephanie Blacksmith: "It's the perfect setting, coming to Key West, hanging out with the guys, get a massage done."
Joe Mitchell: "I'm here for the tough guy spa experience."
Guys will drop all their inhibitions about spas being girly.
The package includes a manly massage, then a soak in a wooden tub with a bucket of their favorite beer and a stogie to light up!
Joe Mitchell: "It's very relaxing sitting in a hot tub, smoking a cigar, having a cold beer. You can feel your skin kind of soft and opening up. It's very relaxing."
Aww, how nice -- at the end of the day, your tough guy gets a Cuban Guayabera shirt to hit the Keys in style with his best buds.
Joe Mitchell: "There's nothing girly about it. It's definitely a man's experience."
But this gift is all girl.
If your beloved loves shoes, send her to Morgan Miller on Lincoln Road.
There, you get to be the designer, creating your shoe from scratch.
Morgan Miller: "It's as easy as coming in picking out your selection, your different sole, strap and buckles and walking out of here with your new pair of shoes."
Start with kitten heels or cork wedges, then add soul to your soles with more than 100 swatches of imported leathers and exotic skins to choose from.
And the accessories can be as sassy as you want.
Morgan Miller: "These are our 'bling bling' accessories. We have our huge Swarovski crystals. We have Harry Winston for the shoes, and we have Italian glass stones."
Kim Rodstein: "You can work with the designer and kind of create something that you may not have in your wardrobe that you can't a find in the store."
When you're done designing, couture cobblers build the shoes in 20 to 30 minutes while you sip champagne.
Kim Rodstein: "It's just a perfect idea for Valentine's Day and for me as well, I'm single now. I'm kidding."
And -- this will knock your socks off -- your shoes are presented to you on a Tiffany's silver platter.
Kim Rodstein: "Wow, they're dynamite."
So your "sole mate" will be walking on sunshine.
The Tough Guy Getaway costs about $499.
And Morgan Miller shoes start at about $150 and go up to $500.
