Kudos to 1-800-Flowers, which is now offering a selection of bouquets grown in the USA. None of them is specifically for Valentine’s Day, but unless your honey is hung up on red roses, you’ll find some lovely choices here.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, hordes of hopeful men will head out in search of sexy underthings for their girlfriends and wives. Unfortunately, much of what they’ll buy will be tacky “teddies,” chafing thongs and other garments that women hate.
This year, take a different approach and buy something elegant, luxurious and more likely to make her feel good about herself. Better fabrics, modern designs and a little more coverage can go a long way toward making your honey feel beautiful and desirable. Here are some ideas, all made in the USA.
The Flora Nkrooz Showstopper Robe is a perfect example of a grown-up lingerie gift. it’s sensual, luxurious and has the surprise of a sheer back when she turns around.The Showstopper Chemise, also by Flora Nikrooz is just lovely, with flowered coverage on the bodice, a sheer back and a flowing skirt.
Really good lingerie is usually made of silk. It feels great against the skin and looks beautiful. These Arak’s Cadel Slips are available in black and phthalo ( a blue-green; and no, we never heard that word before either).The Hanky Panky Ariel Lace Bodysuit has plenty of coverage, but its see-through lace shows off her curves.Speaking of curves, don’t hold back on the lingerie just because your woman is plus-size. As long as she enjoys wearing sexy things, there are plenty of gifts available in her size, such as this Signature Lace Bodysuit.A shy girl might appreciate this Magnolia Knit Chemise, from Flora Nikrooz. It’s more pretty than provocative, but still perfect for a romantic evening.
The same goes for this Commando Peacock Black Print Chemise, although it’s color scheme is a little more exotic.The Hanky Panky Shadow Stripe Bodysuit has complete coverage in the front, but the back is all peek-a-boo openings, and the bottom one cuts very low.Another option is the Debutante Maxi-Slip.And finally, Faux Fur and Satin Robes by Giraffe at Home.
