Searching for a cute gift for your smart phone obsessed Valentine or Galentine? Consider heading to Venice's First Fridays this week where luxe-for-less essentials brand Cuyana will host a pop-up by custom case and accessories company Casetify.
From 7-9pm on Friday, in between food truck-hopping and shopping Abbot Kinney's infamous retail stretch, stop into the storefront and scope out the brand new minimal, marbled case collection ($40)—so chic and unisex—as well as handsome leather Horween Apple Watch bands ($180).
While you're in there, don't sleep on browsing Cuyana's signature leather totes, wallets, and laptop cases—all of which can be customized with monogramming. Add in the fact that Club W will be on hand with complimentary wine and your V-day shopping excursion/night on the town is done and done.
