Relationships 101: The Complete Guide to Gifting This Valentine’s Day Highsnobiety
Ahh, yes, it’s that time of year again when infatuation softens the heart, delight is the default disposition, and the spirit of amore is alive and well. The “Season of Love” is finally upon us, and
we’re here for it all.
And it’s not just romantic love that’s got us feeling all warm and fuzzy. Everyone deserves a little TLC around this time. Long-time friends you only get to connect with once a year. Family members who send you those little Sweethearts candies that no one actually likes—it’s the thought that counts, I suppose. Hell, even pets—because we all know they’re more worthy of it than anyone.
Love—in its many forms—is a beautiful thing that encourages all to revel in its embrace, regardless of how the situation looks from the outside.
With a decades-long history and an expansive collection of watches and accessories to boot,
Fossil has helped solidify every type of relationship over the years. Whether you’re building furniture together for your new apartment or you’ve just started to get those flutter feelings after a few dates, don’t be afraid to show that special somebody exactly how you feel on this; the holiest day for lovers across the world.

"For the Galentine Who’s Never On Time"
There’s an old saying that goes, “Time spent with friends is never wasted,” but no one ever seems to talk about all the time spent waiting on them. Considering most friendships are rooted in a long-standing and compassionate acceptance of one another, calling them out on their bullshit is all the more warranted––everybody needs a little tough love now and then.
If you’ve been searching for the perfect way to address your friend’s tardiness while still showing them how much you care, look no further than Fossil’s
Raquel Watch Ring, the new go-to accessory for your favorite person who struggles with keeping on schedule.
Crafted with premium detailing, defined indices, and an updated square shape, Fossil’s latest treasure not only makes telling time stylish but discreet and easy too. Designed with a flexible band to fit any finger, the Raquel Watch Ring is perfect to keep everyone on time and on the same page––well at least we hope.
Harlow Heart Necklace
"For The Much Needed Self Love Moment"
It’s easy to get caught up trying to find the best way to let others know you’re thinking of them. But, too often, we overlook the one relationship that should supersede them all: the one with ourselves.
No matter where you are in life, reminding yourself how much you love you is always important. And don’t worry, a little self-indulgence never hurt anyone. It’s totally okay to treat yourself to some of those generous acts you’d bestow upon any person of interest—you are the ultimate catch, after all. And what better way to solidify your forever (self) love story than with a beautifully fashioned heart-shaped pendant, courtesy of Fossil?
Made with a finely etched textured finish, the
Harlow Heart Necklace is the exemplary memento to commemorate your true number one. The gold-tone stainless steel necklace symbolizes a certain consistency and solidarity all your relationships should have, especially with the person in the mirror.
As a perfect reminder of just how special you are, the Harlow Heart Necklace takes self-appreciation to a new level.
"For Your Ball & Chain (Literally)"
It’s the age-old story. Two unassuming lovers lock eyes, strike up a conversation, and the rest is history. Through every peak and valley, this couple has remained resilient, even when some of the valleys lasted longer than anyone would’ve liked them to.
To honor all the time invested and the unwavering support, Fossil’s
Harlow Chain offers bold, distinctive links while remaining subtle with an understated shine, representative of a connection that refuses to break. With years of paralleled growth, a relationship as locked in as this needs something that can measure up to the strength of its ties, and only the finely textured construction of the Harlow Chain fits the bill. Carraway Watch & Raquel Watch (His & Hers)
"For Social Media’s First Couple"
Let’s face it: Social media has made relationships way more complicated than ever before. One minute they’re boo’d up all over the timeline; the next, they’ve scrubbed their pages completely clean of one another––almost as if it never even happened. Still, there’s something to be said about looking fly together while the algorithm is still in your favor.
As social media’s ideal His and Hers accessories, the
Carraway and Raquel watch designs fit seamlessly into any Instagrammable ensemble. Elevated in both look and feel, these classic timepieces flex Fossil’s master craftsmanship, showcasing why the brand is one of the best in the business.
Boasting quality leather straps and two distinct watch faces, the Carraway and Raquel watches give the vibe of everlasting bond, making the obligatory couple’s fit pics all that more enticing for the countless mood boards across the internet.
"For The Gold Standard"
This is for the couple that has been together for THE longest but still has yet to lock it down officially: What the #%@^ are you waiting for? By now, they’ve definitely moved in together, memorized each other’s coffee orders, and adopted a Golden Doodle. They may have even tossed around hypothetical honeymoon destinations, yet they haven’t taken any of the steps to make it a reality—don’t be ashamed, everyone is on their own timeline.
Undoubtedly the “Gold Standard” of situationships, this rare type of union extends far beyond the material. A special partnership like this is entitled to a token of appreciation that truly represents the quality of its parts. Constructed from solid steel, the
Everett Watch, with its sporty, sleek styling, is the only piece that could measure up to something as resolute as this pairing. Crafted with a contoured shape, this enduring look will never be tired or forgotten—similar to this kind of relationship.
While everyone else patiently waits for things to move to the next stage, the Everett can act as a nice prelude to the wedding bands that will hopefully follow soon after—but what’s with all the rush, anyway?
