Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

A massage, such as one from Red Door, is a perfect Valentine's gift for anyone.

1) Let your love burn bright with the Rock of Ages Press line of Lovers candles, which pay homage to famous pairs such as Shah Jahan and his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, for whom he built the Taj Mahal. Lovers candles, $37, www.roapress.com

2) With gorgeous arrangements like this rose and lily bouquet, we are happy to say it’s now suitable to send 1-800-FLOWERS. $60-$80, www.1800flowers.com

3) She loves their shoes — now she can douse herself in Jimmy Choo’s sensual debut fragrance. $95 for 3.3. fluid ounces, www.saksfifthavenue.com


4) Yes, sometimes it feels like she’s having a relationship with her phone. But mostly she uses it to call you. Kiss My iPhone Cover in Pink, $20, www.dvf.com

5) With a bottle of sensual body oil — this one combines the essence of cinnamon, clove and cardamom with lavender and rose — you can spoil your loved one with deep tissue back rubs over and over again. Pratima Love Oil, $24, www.pratimaskincare.com


6) Make her blush even when you’re not around. Givenchy Blush Gelee jelly blush, $33, www.sephora.com

For the dudes …

7) True Tour golf shoes are selling fast and furiously. As the lightest shoe worn on the PGA Tour (11 ounces), the Tours are designed for extreme comfort when your boy spends hours on the course. TRUE Linkswear Tour golf shoe, $159, www.truelinkswear.com

8) He ends up giving you back rubs all the time, so spring for a couples’ massage and de-stress together. Red Door signature massage, $240, www.reddoorspas.com


9) Eames chairs are just sexy. Eames chair coasters, $20, www.momastore.org

10) There are a few things he is particular about — his face is one of them. Help him keep it razor burn- and ingrown hair-free with The Art of Shaving’s well-priced kit, which includes an aromatherapy-based pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm and shaving brush. The 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave, $100, www.theartofshaving.com

11) Let’s face it: Your boy wants nothing to do with hearts and candy. He would, however, love these high-quality titanium earphones that include a suppressor microphone for hands-free communication.  Munito earphones with mic, $179, www.munitio.com

Mmm, treats

1) At Girl Next Door, you find decadent baked goods like brownies stuffed with bourbon-soaked cherries and  shortbread squares topped with raspberry preserves (incidentally named “husband bait”). $27 for a dozen, www.gndbakedgoods.com

2) She loves cupcakes, so surprise her with Crumbs’ colossal “Ooh La La.”  This four-pound treat features chocolate cake, vanilla cream-cheese frosting and heart-shaped brownies. It can satisfy over eight people — like her hard-to-impress friends. Crumbs Ooh La La, $35, www.crumbs.com

3) Chocolate or cheese? Now you don’t have to pick. This brilliant gift set (heart-shaped cheese!) pairs your two favorites. Interchange bites of cheese laced with truffle with dark chocolate. Murray’s So Happy Together, $40, www.murrayscheese.com

4) Both of you know the answer to this, but it gives you an excuse to eat this box in five minutes. Max Brenner Loves Me Loves Me Not box, $12, www.maxbrenner.com
