Valentine’s Day “For Her” Gift Guide
Comments () | Published January 22, 2009
Fantasy fragrance by Britney Spears ($55 for 3.3 ounces)
Okay, we’re a little embarrassed about this one, but we swear, it smells really good! The perfume has notes of red lychee, kiwi, jasmine, musk, and orris root, and it’s allegedly “a magic love potion of sweet temptation.” The scent is manufactured by Elizabeth Arden, so it won’t cause mysterious rashes or erratic behavior, and the pink bottle and name make it perfect for Valentine’s Day, even if your girlfriend isn’t a teenybopper.

Annie Leibovitz at Work ($40)
This lightweight coffee-table book is filled with iconic photographs by the legendary photographer. Every image has accompanying text that tells the story behind the photograph.

Leopard clutch ($17.80)
Valentine’s Day is all about animal instincts. With this funky fold-over clutch, bring out your girl’s wild side. It may not be the most practical item out there, but what’s romance without frivolity?
