Monsters and Critics’ Valentine’s Day 2013 best gifts to consider include three great gifts to give the anti-Cupid and Bow man.

For the active man who needs their music fix or to do some business on the iPhone, Droid or Blackberry:

AERIAL7 Headphones (


The top of the list for the man who runs, skis or bikes, this Valentine’s Day Gift of a clever Sound Disk Beanie is the answer to your man’s multi-tasking needs by combining music technology with street wear.

Men and women both love this beanie because the included headphones are thin enough to fit comfortably inside and can be positioned on the ear in a variety of ways. Sound Disk Beanie retails for $60 and is available in 4 different patterns. This gift is perfect for a student or the avid runner, biker, musician, or even just the tech-obsessed. Important to note the hat is incredibly comfortable and the sound quality is superb. Great gift for anyone who hates earbuds and finds them all uncomfortable too.

IVI Eyewear (


We love the retro and classic styles of the IVI line of sunglasses. For the Man of style, time to update to the classic looks of the aviator and wayfarer in unexpected materials like high-tech thermoplastics used by NASA.

The Division Style ( $150) is well balanced and protects eyes from al the harmful UVA and UVB light. These glasses marry high fashion and street cool with the best quality of materials.

The Art of Shaving (


Manliness 101: Why a shave brush and cake of soap and face oil to shave you ask? You have to go back in time, before there were disposables and replaceable cartridges there were metal razors and “the wet shave” — a rite of masculinity from the last century.

Wet shaving” actually refers to the soap, as a wet lather made with a brush and a cake of soap. The whole process takes about two minutes — soak a soft brush in water, stick it into a mug with a soap-cake at the bottom, and swirl the tip of the brush around until a foamy thick lather forms.  Then you brush it onto your face and shave.
