Unique, Stylish Valentine’s Day Gifts For Your Wife

pretty plum sugar robe - valentine's day giftAhh, Valentine’s Day – the official day of romance. While lingerie, flowers and candy are the holiday’s gifting mainstays for the important lady in your life, I’m a fan of going with something a little more subtle, yet still romantic. Here are my top picks for unique, stylish presents for your girlfriend or wife on Valentine’s Day:

1. Scoop Back Kimono Style Robe – Pretty Plum Sugar, $68 (see photo above)

What I love about this robe is the sexy shape and beautiful fabrics – it’s less obvious than buying your lady lingerie, but she’ll love it so much that it just might have the same effect.

2. Byredo Cotton Poplin Candle – Net-A-Porter, $80


This candle is so simple, sleep and stylish. It’s the perfect luxurious present that avoids being cheesy, but is still a beautiful romantic gift. I mean, who doesn’t love to be bathed in candlelight?

3. Faux Fur Mink Throw – Calypso St. Barth, $395  

This ultra-soft and sophisticated faux fur throw is a perfect compliment to almost any home’s decor. It makes a gorgeous throw on the bed, couch, and can make a fabulous makeshift throw in front of a fireplace on Valentine’s Day too… just saying! 😉


What are some of your favorite unique, non-traditional yet still stylish ideas for Valentine’s Day presents? Or what is the favorite gift you’ve ever received for Valentine’s Day? Leave us some love below, we want to hear from you!

Lovely Vintage Inspired Bridal Garters

Bleu Garter - bridal gartersI’ve had the website for Bleu Garters bookmarked for a few weeks now, and am excited to share their lovely creations.  Garters have become a bit passe thanks to lackluster, outdated designs, but Bleu Garters is one company that is making them en vogue once more.

Bleu Garters makes their lovely designs using high quality silks, ribbons and embellishments for unique, vintage inspired garters that an aesthetically-inclined bride is sure to appreciate.

I can just see these being used in a Parisian inspired wedding, a vintage wedding or luxuriously plush nuptials.  Or, the garters would make perfect accessories for a sexy boudoir photo session as well as a honeymoon surprise – they’re so stunning and irresistible, it’s hard to pick just one. Although, if I had to, it would definitely be the Monaco art deco inspired garter in sea foam green, hehehe….

Here are some of my favorites in the Bleu Garter collection:

1. Monaco Art Deco Garter (as seen in main pic above, too), $75

Sweet Nothings for the Honeymoon


Wedding style spans all things wearable, including the honeymoon lingerie.  But many brides-to-be prefer cute and casual styles over more restrictive sexy corsets and garter belts, and have a hard time finding what they want. Ladies looking for some cozy sweet nothings to bring on the honeymoon should definitely check out Victoria’s Secret’s new collection of bow-adorned ‘cheeky panties.’

Sugary sweet with a pinch of spice, these are great for pairing with a lacy camisole or ribbed tank to stay comfy and cute while snoozing in tropical paradise.   Toss a few coordinating tanks in your suitcase with these panties and snuggle against your new hubby in style.

‘Cheeky Panty’ with side-bow, $15 each or 3/$30 at Victoria’s Secret
