OK, V-Day is coming up fast and you might be at a loss about what you can get your significant other in a timely fashion that they will really love! So here we go--something for every budget and I admit that I picked out a few extra things for the ladies!
The ultimate V-Day gift, I found three websites that have fine jewelry at all price points--as low as $35 and as high as $3,500! They can overnight items and the prices are honestly even better than if you dragged your guy over to 47th and made him peruse all the jewelry stores there in the hopes of the ultimate deal. The first site has a greater variety of pearl jewelry than I have seen anywhere (I had no idea they came in so many colors) and is called www.americanpearl.com. There are stunning Tahitian pearl rings (like the green one pictured here set in 14K white gold and diamonds at $1800) and bracelets with and without diamonds that are perfect for that chic NYC lady who likes to always likes to march to the beat of her own drummer! Then there is www.americandiamondshop.com, which has everything from classic diamond stud earrings to engagement rings (if you want to go that far this V-Day)!
2. SPECIAL MEAL
It goes without saying that most couples like to share dinner on Valentine's Day. For carnivores that have ravenous appetites for many varieties of meat, poultry (and fish), I strongly recommend Texas De Brazil at 60th and Third Avenue in midtown Manhattan. You can watch the chefs grilling long skewers of meat (that look like swords) over by the wonderful salad bar that is also included in the $60 all-inclusive price tag (drinks and desserts are not included, BTW). If you sign up for their website www.texasdebrazil.com, you will automatically get $25 off two meals.

3. A NICE ACCESSORY
...is always a great gift because you do not need to know sizes, but play it safe if you think a pattern is too bright or funky for your “S.O.”! Ladies love bags, and I fell in love with this wonderful with this Betsey Johnson black and gold quilted faux leather heart tote called Be Mine Again available for $98 at Lord & Taylor and www.lordandtaylor.com. It comes in other color combos as well but this is the most neutral. Or get a gift card for DSW Shoe Warehouse -- it is a great choice for guys and gals who love to get deep discounts on shoes and need the maximum amount of choices!

4. SWEETS AND OTHER TREATS
I recommend going to www.gourmetgiftbaskets.com for the guy or gal who loves their sweet and savory snacks. You can get everything from boxes full of exotic flavored popcorn (my favorite one offered that is perfect for V-Day is the Strawberry Cheesecake flavor), chocolate dipped strawberries and gift boxes and mix and match a lot of great items.
