Valentine’s Day — you either love it, hate it or (sometimes) forget it. If you have a special someone (yourself included!) to celebrate this glorious holiday, take a quick stroll through the Scottsdale Quarter. With the help of the Stephanie Ingersoll, who knows the Quarter better than even the most dedicated shopper, Scottsdale Living has compiled a gift guide to the most excessively romantic day of the year.
|There’s nothing more romantic than a sensual fragrance. If you’ve been dating a long time and your S.O. Knows every word to Seal’s “A Kiss From a Rose,” there’s a good chance this gift will go over well.
Try: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Trio, $144.25 or Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Gift Set, $90 from Sephora.
|Does the Sun have nothing on the warm fuzzies you get when you look at your honey? Help buffer that beautiful shine with these products.
Try: GLAMGLOW Clearing Treatment, $69-$88 or CLARISONIC Mia2 Hollywood Lights Collection, $150 from Sephora.
|At the heart of a budding relationship is laughter and good times. Plus, you know the saying — the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. These appetite-satisfying gifts are great for a guy (and gal) whose eyes are bigger than their stomach.
Try: Edible bra and panty, $9.99; an XL beer glass that holds four brews, $14; box of chocolates or giant candy bars, $7 to $19.99, from It’s Sugar.
|Show your better half how well you know them with a gift that aligns with their passions.
Try: Marilyn Monroe gear — $13 to $39.99, from It’s Sugar.
|Is your beloved a classic? Don’t be afraid to take the classic route of gifting jewelry! For trendy items, Kendra Scott has both of you covered with cufflinks for him and gorgeous jewelry sets for her.
Try: Emerson, Daniel or Loren cufflinks, $44 to $75; Stevie necklace, Marissa earrings or an Erika cuff bracelet, $150, $125, $160, from Kendra Scott Jewelry.
