Valentine's Day: Fun to celebrate, difficult to shop for. Sometimes, the usual suspects - flowers and candy - are all it takes to please your main squeeze. But relationships are also unique, and often the best Valentine gift is the one that follows Cupid's arrow in a completely unexpected direction. Here are some ways to think about shopping for your amour.
Plenty of services offer personalized gifts for couples. Your partner may swoon when she reads a romance novel personalized with both of your names, or a bound book written specifically to tell your very own love story. There are even personalized letters in bottle for the partner who can't resist a good love note.
Anything from silky sheets and lingerie to a ride in racecar or helicopter ride is bound to ignite a spark in any relationship.
It's been proven that new experiences spice up romantic relationships and strengthen the bond between two people. The best Valentine gift for your love may be a trip to a far off land - or even an airplane jump!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but there are really only three that matter most on Valentine's Day. Say, "I love you," in countless ways with photos from a favorite shared vacation, your wedding, or even your first date emblazoned on a home accessory, framed elegantly for the wall, or bound beautifully for the coffee table.
Spa goodies are fun for couples who want to spend Valentine's Day indoors. Pamper each other with massages, face masks, and exfoliants. Up the ante with at-home spa gadgets, and throw cozy robes and vintage wines into the mix.
Sexy "coupons," lingerie, or even a night at a luxury hotel - with a steamy hot tub - are all guaranteed wins for Valentine's Day.
When in Doubt, Get Jewelry
Whether it's a diamond tennis bracelet for her or a stately watch for him, let your partner wear your love on his or her wrist - or ears, or neck, or?you get the picture.
