If you’re out and about today looking for a great Valentine’s Day gift, we’re kissing and telling with South Florida flair. Here are a few ideas that will sweeten everyone's day -- and night -- on Feb. 14.
Write a love note and set it in stone with a Signature Brick installed along the Riverwalk on the historic New River in Fort Lauderdale. Pick the spot, craft the message and once engraved and installed (in about a month), take a romantic stroll together to find your message. Bonus: The purchase is tax-deductible.
Available: $50 at GoRiverwalk.com; save $15 with code VAL2011 through Monday, Feb. 14.
When day turns to night, heat things up with Booty Parlor’s three-in-one Skin Honey ($22). This water-based kissable body topping, massage gel and personal lubricant comes in three yummy flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla Chai and Pomegranate. Or, create sparkles and sparks with Lust Me Dust Me Kissable Body Shimmer ($32) in three delish flavors. (Find even more racy play things we can’t mention here at BootyParlor.com.)

If your BFF doesn’t have a beau, help her celebrate with Lush’s honey-scented It's Raining Men Shower Gel ($24.95) for body and hair, or the Frog Prince Bath Bomb ($4.95), no kissing necessary. Just throw the frog in the tub and he magically turns into a prince.
