vday gift guide: fit to be tied

How you spend your Valentine's Day is up to you--whether you choose to partake in a romantic dinner or get a little raunchy. But here's a way to get all tied up and still keep things pretty G-rated. KRIMSON by Kwame ($75+), the newest ties to hit the market, is an executive neckwear line targeted to “Generation X” professionals who are not looking to wear their father’s ties. Kwame, a Harvard graduate and contestant on the first season of The Apprentice, founded the line. His exceptional personal style and business savvy is what makes it so successful. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and ESPN’s Tony Reali are fans. Your significant other can be too. Look for Krimson by Kwame ties at Macy’s and Belks department stores nationwide.

happy vday: give rose petals

It's easy to call a florist and order a dozen red roses for Valentines Day. But you'll know you're extra special if your significant other presents you with some of the luxurious products from the One With Nature Rose Petal Collection. The body wash ($8.99), hand wash ($7.99), body lotion ($9.99) and bar soap ($4.49) are all infused with a blend of rose essential oils, plant based fragrances, natural minerals and salts from the Dead Sea. I gave the bar soap to my mom to display in her guest bathroom and put the hand wash and lotion in my kids' bathroom. They love the pearly liquid soap--it makes them wash their hands longer--and get a kick out of the dab of lotion I let them smooth on afterward. (I kept the body wash for myself!) The bottom line: Everyone comes up smelling like roses! All One With Nature products are available at Whole Foods and at
