Wrap it up – Valentine’s Day gift ideas for women

It’s estimated more than 62 percent of people celebrate Valentine’s Day by sending greeting cards and flowers or enjoying romantic dinners.

While the holiday is associated with love and romance, Feb. 14 strikes fear in the hearts of some men. They worry, they procrastinate and they don’t know what to buy. Should the gift be extravagant or more traditional such as candy and flowers?

No need to stress. Just put some thought into the gift. Try to connect with her personal passions or needs. And we’re not talking vacuum cleaner. A busy wife and mother might just want some time to herself to recharge – and be pampered. If she’s a techie, search out the latest gadget.

Here are a few other ideas.

* My Burberry, winner of Allure magazine’s 2014 award for best new scent, is a delightful mix of sweet pea and bergamot with geranium, freesia, patchouli and rose. Eau de parfum, $95 to $125 at Dillard’s and Macy’s, Penn Square Mall.

* Instead of a heart-shaped box of drugstore chocolates, give the good stuff. Bedre Fine Chocolate, based in Davis, is known for its delicious meltaways, bars, crisps and twists. The newest product is chocolate coffee. Bedre also creates custom chocolates for Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and the Hard Rock Hotel. Priced less than 40 cents for a meltaway, Bedre is available at Route 66 in 50 Penn Place, Gourmet Gallery in Edmond and Shoppes at Northpark and the headquarters’ retail store in Davis, as well as other locations.

* What woman doesn’t enjoy a little pampering? Surprise her with a gift certificate for a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure. Or go all out with a spa day. Check out the services at Cottonwood Salon Spa in Edmond and Renaissance Salon and Spa.

* Crafted on the island of Bali, these sterling silver woven bracelets are accented with 18-karat gold and gemstones such as garnet, amethyst and topaz. The collection by Oklahoma City-based Artista Designs also includes rings, necklaces, crosses and charms. Bracelets are $515 at R Meyers.

* Begg of Scotland’s Wispy cashmere scarf feels heavenly. It’s lightweight, thus the name, and perfect to wrap around the neck or shoulders. Cost is $ R Meyers. Other colors are available.
