It’s a holiday devoted to love, so why does Valentine’s Day often inspire angst instead of ardor?
Many men are insecure when it comes to making romantic gestures, whether it’s choosing the perfect gift or deciding how to present it in a memorable way.
Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry can help, says Amy Hughes, marketing director for the jewelry store with eight locations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
“Every woman wants something special for Valentine’s Day.”
And every woman would like a little romance in her life.
So, once you’ve chosen the perfect gift – Lee Michaels has a variety of suggestions in the accompanying slide show – make it a labor of love to charm your valentine with an unforgettable presentation.

* Spoil her: Valentine’s Day is on Sunday this year, so it’s the perfect time to pamper your sweetheart with breakfast in bed. Go for heart-shaped pancakes if she likes a hearty breakfast – it’s OK if they’re not perfectly shaped -- or a bowl of bright red strawberries if she prefers a lighter meal in the morning. Either way, complete the tray with fresh flowers and a box with something pretty inside from Lee Michaels.
* Say it with flowers: Have a bouquet of 11 roses delivered to your sweetheart, then present the 12th flower in person with your gift tied to the stem by a pretty ribbon. A piece of jewelry in a love-knot design would be the perfect complement.
* Love is like a box of chocolates: Take one piece of candy out of a box of fine chocolates and replace it with something sparkly. She won’t mind. We promise.
