There are millions of gifts you could get your significant other this Valentine’s Day. Literally one million. Probably more.

With so many “things” that will end up in the closet or eaten or withered in a matter of weeks, why not give a gift that they will actually use every day?

We’re talking about protection. Eye protection that is: high-quality, polarized sunglasses from Optic Nerve.

I know what you’re thinking: I’m on the Optic Nerve blog, of course you’re going to recommend we buy your products. Fair statement. But let us tell you why it makes sense.

We are independently owned, so without a parent company to share profits with, we can give you a better price than our competitors. High-quality sunglasses under $100 -- what more is there to say?

The best gifts don't have to be the most expensive.

It's simple really; we give you quality at a fair price. You don’t have to turn your wallet upside for a timely, long-lasting, and ultimately eye-saving gift. And they don’t have to know you didn’t spend a fortune.

Your significant other might even ask you to return our sunglasses. “These are too nice, we can’t afford these!” If the concern is genuine, you can let them in on the actual price. If the concern is more of a gesture, might we suggest a great follow up line: “You’re worth it, baby.”

This Valentine’s Day, give the gift of protection -- not chocolates.

Putting our money where our mouth is.

For the budget minded, check out our ONE by Optic Nerve, our line of polarized sunglasses all under $40.
