The Valentine's Day Gift That Never Fails

With Valentine's Day just one week away, I'm sure all of you (taken) ladies are in the midst of either planning every little detail for the big day, trying to decide on the perfect present, or maybe you're just sitting back, relaxing, and letting him do all the work this year.

I've always found Valentine's Day gifting to be a little bit tricky. It's supposed to be a day about you, your man, and the love that you have for one another. With that said, I think a Valentine's Day gift should be something a

little

more intimate or sentimental than your typical Christmas or birthday present. So for those of you still looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift, I've got a few words for you ladies:

BOUDOIR. PHOTO SHOOT. SEXY. LINGERIE.

We're bringing a whole new level to February 14th! Or maybe I should say, "We're bringing sexy back!" a la Justin Timberlake!

(Insert giggling, blushing, "Say what?!", "Are you serious?!", "Oh my god, what would my mother say?" responses here.)

I'm serious! What man WOULDN'T want to receive a set of photos of their beloved in something completely risque, looking at him with hungry, lustful bedroom eyes? It's a no-fail Valentine's Day gift!

Your man is going to look like THIS when he sees those pictures!

And you may not believe it, but doing a boudoir shoot can also be

good

for you! If you're new to lingerie, you have no idea what you're missing! Lingerie makes you feel unbelievably sexy, not to mention it boosts your confidence and self-esteem by several notches. Having your picture taken in lingerie can also make you feel like the Victoria's Secret model you secretly wished you were. It's a win-win situation!

(But Caroline! I'm so self-conscious about the way I look!)

Honey, let me tell you two things. 1. Find lingerie that suits your body type. That and black is

always

slimming. 2. Still feeling self-conscious? There's Photoshop for that.

So ladies, do yourself a favor...treat yourself to some lingerie and find yourself a boudoir photographer. Your man will thank you later. 

One of my favorite lingerie (online) boutiques is Agent Provocateur. They carry a lot of unique pieces that you normally wouldn't find at Victoria's Secret or other department stores. Here's something from AP that I've been lusting over recently:

Agent Provocateur Maddy Bra (

If you're looking for lingerie, here are a list of online boutiques that may aid you in your search:

Frederick's of Hollywood

Victoria's Secret

Agent Provocateur

Journelle

Of course, if you're still having trouble finding lingerie, your birthday suit could work as well. Just sayin'.

Final Note: I'm sharing this as a recommendation to the women who have been with their man for quite some time. I'm not sure it would be a really good idea to give this to someone you just met. However, if you think it's a great idea for that special someone, (even though you just met him), WONDERFUL! I'm glad I was able to give you a little bit of inspiration. ;)
