What’s on your gift wish list for Valentine’s Day?  Wondering what to buy your significant other?

For Her:

Go girly or go geek!

Other than the traditional roses, lingerie and jewelry, here are some gift ideas for her:

1.  A day spa or an overnight spa getaway is sure to be a big hit.  She will thank you many times and many ways…

2.  Geeky gifts are IN so if you can splurge, got for the latest tech gadget:  get her a new iPad or e-reader if you can afford it of course.

3.  Low on funds?  A gift certificate for a manicure and/or pedicure is always loved and appreciated.

4.  A full day out of the kitchen and meals prepared by boyfriend or hubby is a way to win her over.  Seriously, we all need a break from the kitchen so breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared by someone else for a change, would be nice.


Buy her a gym membership.  This will undoubtedly send the wrong message and will surely send you to the dog house.
