Last minute Valentine’s Day Gift Tips

This Valentine’s Day give gifts that you and your loved one can share and enjoy together. Valentine’s Day is, after all, about celebrating and enjoying the love and connection you share with another. I have put together a list of gifts that can turn the ordinary breakfast in bed to something special and make that next trip even more exciting.

Nespresso Latissima+

Who says a man can’t enjoy breakfast in bed every now and then. Give the gift of Nespresso this Valentine’s Day and enjoy a lovely addition to breakfast with your loved one. The Latissima+ is perfect for coffee lovers as it brings the exceptional quality of the signature Nespresso beverages into the home. I am a coffee lover and have personally tried the Latissima+ myself thanks to our friends at Nespresso. It creates everything from traditional espressos to Americanos and Lattes with the included milk frother. It truly brings the European coffee experience home. Check out Nespresso’s Ultimate Coffee Creations  for new ways to enjoy Nespresso. Available at Nesresso Boutiques and Nespresso.com ($399)

Moët & Chandon Valentine’s Day Gift Bag

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a wonderful bottle of rosé. This year, Moët & Chandon, one of my personal favorites, is offering special Valentine’s Day bottle which invites you to customize the bottle via an array of stickers to decorate the bottle with your own message.
