What Every Woman Wants for Valentine’s Day

This year shopping for your sweetheart doesn’t have to leave you with a broken heart. Stumped? Check out iMag's tip sheet for gift ideas.

Lingerie — Nothing says I love you like a little lingerie, and where better to shop for that naughty number than Victoria’s Secret. If you’re bashful, visit their website, but if you’re brave enough to walk amongst the girly gams, don’t forget her size, and do heed the help of a saleswoman.

Shop for what she’ll wear. An elegant red kimono can be just as sexy as a skimpy satin bra and panties. But don’t feel like cotton is your only option — if you surprise her with a little silk and lace she may surprise you right back and love it. For something sexy that's not too racy, check out Wonderbra’s Passion bra and girl short. It’s comes in pink heart embroidery and in a black and red combo.

My Picks:

Victoria’s Secret Red Satin Wrap ($38)
Victoria’s Secret Lace Trim Satin Slip ($24)
Wonderbra’s Passion Bra ($30)
Wonderbra’s Passion Girl Short ($18)

Flowers — Want to make your woman weep? A dozen long-stem roses are sure to do the trick. My advice? Send them to the office. When she arrives welcomed by that long ribboned box, her co-workers will swoon, and you’ll be guaranteed a happy Valentine. Make sure to say something sweet in the little white card. “Never change” never works. And to make her feel extra special, be unique when picking her flowers. Pink is nice, and white works too. Orchids can be an elegant option, and tulips will have her thinking of spring. For more advice on ordering flowers read 1-800-FLOWERS.com: Five Bets for Buying Better Buds.
