And The Award Goes To…Part 1

The Perfect Man at The Academy Awards

Yes, that’s international superstar Tom Hanks – with the Perfect Man gift from Figi’s. We took a some liberties with one of Tom’s Oscar-winning moments to help introduce our three part series on Valentine gifts. The series is entitled “And The Award Goes To…” and is based loosely on the Academy Awards. Tom sure does look good with his ‘award’, doesn’t he? (photo:

It’s that time of year again! The night all movie fans await – The Oscars are coming March 2nd! As you may already know, Oscar nominations have been announced, and is the case every year, many applauded the wonderful films and performances being honored, while others are in disbelief over the films and performances ‘snubbed’ by the Academy. For example, many agree that “Captain Phillips” deserves its nomination for “Best Picture”, yet wonder how Tom Hanks is not a nominee for “Best Actor in a Leading Role” for his work in “Captain Phillips”.  Oh well, such is the nature of show business.

With the spirit of the Oscars in mind, we’ve nominated some of our best Valentine gifts for her, him and kids and here’s your opportunity to cast your vote! So, without further ado, let’s take a look at our nominees.
