MACY'S EXPERTS OFFER VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT SUGGESTIONS

 NEW YORK, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Around the world and throughout the ages, Valentine's Day traditionally serves as a celebration of the joys of love and friendship. Since the early 1400's, men and women have practiced the tradition of exchanging gifts on Valentine's Day as a token of their love and affection for one another. Today, gifts of red roses, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and romantic Valentine's Day cards are popular ways to say "I love you." This year, why not indulge in a truly memorable gift for your special someone? The experts at Macy's have compiled the following list of Valentine's Day gift suggestions:
 -- Cupid, son of the goddess of love and beauty, has come to symbolize "passionate, tender or playful love." This embodiment of affection has emerged as a fashion statement today, and can be found in a variety of romantic gold and silver pins and pendants, accented with delicate hearts, bows and pearls.
 -- Choose from an extensive selection of exquisite fine jewelry, including a two-carat diamond tennis bracelet, a heart-shaped diamond ring, necklace or pin from Macy's Fine Jewelry Collection.
 -- Send your gift of love and kisses with a red leather "XXX" handbag, cosmetic purse or wallet, from Paloma Picasso (or perhaps a tooled leather handbag from Kenneth Cole, imprinted with an intricate shoe motif.)
 -- For a fun, whimsical look at the lighter side of love, Macy's suggests a pair of stylized coffee mugs for you and your mate, by Vice Versa, with such contradictory messages as "Heaven" and "Earth," "King" and "Queen," "Love" and "Hate," and "Fire" and "Water."
 -- For your music-loving mate, a colorful silk tie from The Beatles Neckwear Collection will put a song in his heart. Two seasonal favorites feature the hit songs "Can't Buy Me Love" and "If I Fell."
 -- Keep him warm and cozy all winter long with Christopher Hayes red cotton thermal underwear. (Also available in white, black or grey.) Or, choose from a wide selection of cotton and silk boxers, in a variety of colors and patterns.
 -- Candy with a cause. All-new Boca Bons Chocolates are sure to please even the sweetest tooth of all. This 12-ounce box of assorted truffle brownies is truly decadent but comes guilt-free, as a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Boca Bons will help fight child abuse in your area.
 Also, choose from a lavish assortment of fine chocolates from Joseph Schmidt Chocolates and Godiva Chocolatiers.
