valentine's day is coming in hot so you know what time it is!
Time to give all you clueless men a gift guide for that special
lady in you life. Please do not resort to the classic cop-out gifts of chocolate and roses. Nothing says "I completely forgot" more than stale, Russel Stove's chocolate you picked up at Rite Aid. Whether it's your first valentine or you've been doing this song and dance for eons, make it count!

It's not going to be your Yankee
Candle, Bath and Body Works variety. We are adults here! Sophisticated,classy scents for your lady, not girl. Women can associate scents and smells with certain memories, whether they are good or bad, so make sure you grab up an amazing smell for the amazing night. These are some of my personal faves and cult classics at different price points.

If you're feeling ballsy and have a little bit more coin to burn, you can try your hand at some fragrances for the lady. Usually, women are very picky about their scents.  But there is something about a man buying us perfume that is a turn on. Whether it's a powdery, floral scent or a deep, dark eau de parfume with subtle notes of vanille, it tells us what you like your woman to smell like and gives us a sexy memory of that crazy Valentine's Day in that intimate, hotel room
*TIP: Look out for gift sets! Sometimes its cheaper to by sets, than the single fragrance. These are all available in sets.

Men. listen to me very closely. If you do not know your lady's bra size, do not even attempt to buy lingere. Nothing is more discouraging when we are in the mood and we receive lingere we can't even squeeze into. So instead of thinking about what she's going to wear the night of, think about what she can wear the morning after. Breakfast in the morning with some mimosas, just lounging around with bae in a big blanket and her matching PJ's. Even if pajamas aren't her thing, you can always buy her the cult classic combo of Calvin Klein boyshorts with the matching bra to go with it. Some of us real-world women have no desire to sleep in lingere with all the straps and the lace and the fastens (especially if we have nipple piercings like myself). It also gives us the wonderful illusion that you aren't thinking about sex right off the bat.
*If your lady cannot stand pink, 
They also come in black and grey (I gotchu)

personalized gifts:
Name plates are cute and everything but, again, we are adults here. What is Valentine's Day without a great bottle of bubbly and some engraved champagne flutes. We all have know that one store in the mall we've never set foot in. Well fellas, let's step into Things Remembered. They have got all kinds of goods you can get personalized. But if you're not the social butterfly, you can order it online!

flowers + roses:
Now I'm not saying not to get your lady roses. Just put some thought into WHERE you purchase your roses. Stop with the Publix flowers that die in three days. We want to hang onto the memories of Valentine's day for as long as possible, so we don't want those memories to start turning brown and crispy. The best places, in my opinion, to get roses is Whole Foods and Venus et Fleur. Whole Foods is your best value! The roses last forever and come in so many different shades and hues of color. Their two dozen for $20 for Valentine's Day is amazing and the amazing team members can wrap them with ribbon and layer them for free. Now on the pricier side of life, Venus et Fleur is the Bentley of roses. Their roses start from $39 dollars (for one rose) and move up through the thousands! But, their claim to fame is that their roses last for one whole year before dying. One. Whole. Year! 'Nuff said.
