Love is in the air Boston. Let’s get ready for VALENTINE’S DAY 2014.

Here is a list of some of my HOT & SEXY Valentine’s Day gifts, favorite spots, restaurants and over-all cool things to do.

Now remember, you DO NOT need to have a SweetHeart to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It is all about loving yourself, your friends and family. So don’t go and get all depressed on us now. This ‘gift guide’ is about HAVING FUN and ‘Loving the One you are with’.

Chic Buds

LOVE THESE! With Valentine’s Day around the corner, people everywhere are searching to find the perfect gift for that “someone special”. This gift has it all and is perfect for a friend, co-worker or that ‘fashionista’ who literally has it all! Something that she can keep and use over and over again, all the while thinking of you and your amazing gift giving skills.

Want one? Right now – you can ‘Enter To Win’ your very own on our CONTEST PAGE.


The Fireplace Restaurant in Brookline, MA

This spot has IT ALL! Great food, great drinks, a fireplace to snuggle up to and an extensive GLUTEN-FREE menu (my hubby needs that!). Lots of things going on here for Valentine’s Day weekend. So if you are looking for a great night out with friends, or are NEWLY engaged, this could be it for you!

Beacon Hill Chocolates

Now, a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide would NOT be complete without CHOCOLATE. Beacon Hill is my favorite neighborhood in Boston, and this place ladies and gents is ‘Heaven On Earth’. So many good treats in here, almost too hard to pick just one favorite. One thing I do love about this place though, is that they have personalized custom ‘keepsake boxes’. This is one my husband gave me on our 10-year wedding anniversary. CLICK HERE for their website.


The Liberty Hotel – Boston

If you want to hang out in the city on Valentine's Day, then The Liberty Hotel is the spot you want to be at!

Check out their 'XOXO Valentine's Day Party' ... this 21+ complimentary event has it all. Bring a date OR find a mate! But you must RSVP to to get on the list.

Or maybe you want to spend the weekend in the city?

Then check out their 'Lip Locked Package' - the perfect option for those who want to sit back and leave all the planning to someone else. Rates from $299. Get ALL THE DETAILS HERE or call them at 617-224-4000 to book.

One of my favorite stores on Newbury Street is DQM for VANS. My husband Paul and I love to go there when we are in that part of town. And, of course, we usually buy something there too. Plus, they love dogs and Lola gets to stop in and say HI to Howard and the crew!
