How do the stars shop for the most romantic day?
Hollywood types don’t exactly have the best luck in the love department, but they have pretty decent taste when it comes to shopping. We’ve narrowed down some celeb favorites in this last minute gift guide:
Celebrity parents like Kelly Rutherford, Elisabeth Rohm, Tori Spelling, Kelly Ripa and Usher pick up this and that for their little ones from The Children's Place. For V Day, the store has adorable heart head bands, PJ’s, love notes and T-shirts with hippie peace signs. Caveat: You may want some of this stuff yourself, just supersized. Childrensplace.com.
Fire up a Slatkin candle and it’s a little trip for the nose. Slatkin & Co., big with Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Cher, has recently come out with more South Florida friendly scents: breezy Seaside Escape, fruity tooty Juicy Nectarine and Fresh Cotton, which smells just like clean laundry. A metal sleeve adornment with hearts, $5, does away with the need for wrapping. Candles: $19.50 at Bath & Body Works stores, www.bbw.com
Jersey Shore’s resident DJ has hitched his wagon to StarGreetz.com, helping design personalized e-cards, invitations and ringtones. He has one available specifically tied to the big day, when he wishes your friends and significant others a Happy Valentine’s Day from you. Primo for fans of the Jerseyite’s cheesy catch phrases (e.g, You gotta stay fresh-to-death I call it - fresh outfit, fresh haircut, fresh tan, just stay fresh.”
When it comes to celebrating the most trumped up, romantic day of the year in style, NUVO Sparkling Liqueur is a must-have accessory. The pink bottle looks like it belongs on a perfume tray. The taste is Cherry Sprite, grown up. Fans: Eva Longoria, Brooke Shields, Jamie Foxx. $10-$30 at liquor stores.
Carol's Daughter Love Butter When they’re in need of a little pampering and have no time for a two hour facial, Mary J Blige, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Hudson scoop up Carol’s Daughter Love Butter. Scented with brown sugar, honey and cinnamon, this moisturizer does its job with a soft touch. $18, CarolsDaughter.com, Sephora, select Macy's.
No valentine? No problem. Urban Decay’s Pocket Rocket lip gloss has a mini man doll encased in the applicator’s top. Makeup junkies like Annalynne McCord covet this product because when it opens, UD says it releases pheromones to attract a mate. Not that the 90210 hottie needs any help. $19, available at Ulta, Sephora.
Victoria’s Secret supermodels like Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge and Erin Heatherton just look like they smell good, don’t they? Most of them are wearing the lingerie retailer’s latest fragrance, Love Me. We also don’t have to tell you VS has a pretty good selection of sexy loot as well, if you need ideas.
Mmm, what’s that smell? Vacation. Pacifica perfumes has rounded up their give best sellers for Valentines: Tuscan Blood Orange, Tahitian Gardenia, Hawaiian Ruby Guava, Indian Coconut Nectar and French Lilac. Julia Roberts, Courteney Cox and Alanis Morissette can’t get enough of these layer friendly scents made with organic soy and coconut wax.
