I've been looking around to see what's out there in terms of gifts for the special guy or girl in your life, and here are some ideas in case you're at a loss. There are some clever ideas...plus one extremely over-the-top gift that some lucky girl may get!

GIFT IDEAS FOR HER:

-- Chocolate-covered strawberries.

-- A spa package (facial, massage, mani-pedi, and/or hair).

-- Lingerie (always iffy...you really should know if this would go over well with her first...and getting her size right could be a problem!)

-- A bottle of her favorite wine (or at least a type of wine that you know she would like).

-- A delivery of fresh Maine lobster! (www.getmainelobster.com is one source.) Very original!)

-- A limo ride to a night on the town.

-- Cupcake decorating or wine tasting classes.

-- A cleaning service for a month (or more if you can!) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!

-- Jewelry.

GIFTS FOR HIM:

-- A watch or other jewelry.

--  A new smart phone case.

-- Winter sports gear.

-- Gift cards for oil changes or car washes. Cute!

-- Sports merchandise of his favorite teams.

-- Rock climbing, boxing, casino dealer or bartending classes/lessons. That sounds original!

-- Cologne.

-- A box of delivered Omaha steaks!

AND THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT GIFT I'VE COME ACROSS SO FAR THIS YEAR:

It's the world's most expensive Teddy Bear. at least according to the Vermont Teddy Bear Company. Their $30,000 bear comes sporting some bling. The Big Hunka Love Diamond Bear comes with a 5.9 carat, one-of-a-kind "Fire Rose" diamond ring. And if that's not enough, the four and a-half foot bear also has a red velvet bowtie!
