Last Minute Valentine's Shopping

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

We're terrible at this Valentine's thing. Every year, we alternate between crying into our drink at home while watching sappy movies because we're lonely, fretting about whether or not the one we like likes us back, or forgetting to come through with the perfect gift for our current sweetheart. Well, not this year. We talked with Little Lady Red (aka Tracy Sandler, personal shopper to the stars) and she agreed to give us a little advice about what to get for this year's Valentine, or at least the one we hope will be.

Little Lady Red suggests:

For Women:
As a token of your appreciation of all the loving and wonderful thing your wife or girlfriend does for you, why not head over to Faire Frou Frou, a new and classy lingerie store in Studio City. The selection is fantastic. For this occasion, Underglam’s Cami ($55) and underwear ($24) set covered in sparkly hearts seems very appropriate.

For Men:
So you forgot to get him a gift – these things happen. However, he just called and revealed a romantic night of decadence at Drago in Santa Monica followed by a barefoot walk on the beach, so you better get out there. Banana Republic’s Pink-Stripe Premium Barrel Cuff Shirt ($78) is very fashionable and sure to look good on your man, whether you’re at Valentine’s Day dinner or out on a Saturday afternoon.

If your guy isn't so much into clothing, Crate and Barrel’s Grid CD/DVD Organizer for $79.95 will make him smile until at least St. Patrick’s Day.
