Piece of My Heart: 9 Gifts You’d Love to Get This Valentine’s Day

Maybe you’re feeling sad and alone, wallowing in your sorrowful state of singledom. Or maybe you’re celebrating your five year anniversary with the love of your life and looking forward to a day of delightful surprises.

Whether you’re gifting yourself or just trying to drop a few hints to your honey, here are ten great gift ideas for feeling—and looking—absolutely adored this Valentine’s Day.


Deborah Lippmann “My Touch My Kiss”



She's designed custom nail lacquer for everyone from Julia Roberts to Lady Gaga, and now she brings her special color talents to lips. The _Naked_ nail lacquer is sheer, buildable color that drys to a high-shine gloss without any streaking (which sheer nail colors have a tendency to do). And the _I'm Every Woman_ lip color—also very sheer and buildable—is rich and creamy and feels like velvet. This is one beautiful duo. $38 Beauty.com


Jenna Leigh Biscayne Tanga and Demi



Coveted by everyone from Rihanna to Blake Lively, Jenna Leigh's ultra feminine lingerie line is the epitome of pretty underthings. And with the spring sheer trend now in full swing, we'll be able to flaunt her balconets not just in the bedroom but on the street. Sound like a tad too much? Leigh offers some sage advice for how to pull off the exposed lingerie trend, "The best way to pull this look off without looking trashy, is to wear a bra that has pretty sides (lace, interesting mesh, colored silk) under a tank top or dress that is low under the armpits so you can expose your lingerie that way, instead of in your cleavage. You can also achieve this look wearing shirt with a low back to show the back detailing of the bra." $98 and $53 JennaLeighLingerie


Elemental Herbology Neroli and Rose Damask Shower Gel and Body Cream



Elemental herbology's duo, infused with pure orange flower water and neroli and rose centifola oil, is the ultimate moisturizing and skin-soothing experience. This pair turns bath time into something truly decadent. $48 and $42 Elemental Herbology

Le Bon Garcon’s “Caramour”



Tired of getting that annual box of truffles? Me too. Thank goodness for Le Bon Garcon's handmade caramels. Creator Justin Chao, who studied in France under some of the world's top pastry chefs, has put extraordinary effort into making the finest. When asked why he chose to specialize in caramel, Justin explained, "The French have elevated caramel to an art form, soft and buttery with a perfect balance of bitter and sweet. It was a revelation to me." How might I describe Garcon's limited-run Valentine's Day flavor Caramour? It's a flavorful explosion of creamy goodness. And the cute craft paper packaging just makes the whole artisanal experience that much sweeter. $15 (4oz) or $27 (8oz) LeBonGarcon


Marc Jacobs Hammered-satin Camisole



If you're a jeans girl, it probably means you're in no mood to put on a dress—even if it is Valentine's Day. That's OK, this is exactly what camisoles are for. Throw on this sexy black satin cami with your favorite denim and a pair of super high pumps, and you'll have him weak in the knees. $148 The Outnet


Oribe Shine Reflecting Spray



Getting sultry hair is a big part of pulling your hottest date night look together. And Oribe's high-shine glossing spray is the perfect finishing touch. Infused with argan oil and lemongrass, it not only makes your hair look lustrous, but it hydrates and nourishes it too. And to top it off? It smells delicious. $36 Oribe


Luv my Box Monthly Subscription Boxes



Inspired by the wildly popular 50 Shades of Grey series and monthly subscription services like Birchbox and Glossybox, LuvmyBox sends its subscribers monthly, um…goodies for the bedroom. Founder, Kimberly Kaplan explains the concept, "I know quite a few people that are too shy to go into sex stores and if they did they wouldn't know where to start! I figured, why not bring it to them!" Each box comes in a theme (my February box came with restraints and a blindfold) and a little card with a message of seduction—and helpful tips for using your new playthings. LuvmyBox
