Agent Provocateur Lingerie

Some luxury lingerie is a great gift if you know your lover's size and personal taste. While the gift is really for the both of you, you should consider her style and tastes before your own to ensure picking out the perfect ensemble. For a soft romantic look that has some edge to it, try the Caitlin collection which pairs subtle bondage with a romantic gothic style. With a vintage silhouette, the soft pink is made from French Chantilly lace and is paired with black rouleaux strapping, which brings forth strength. The bra is priced at $190, the boned waspie at $220, and the two styles of briefs are priced at $190 and $120. (Photo Courtesy of Agent Provocateur) Bed and Breakfast at Captain's House Inn

Staying at a bed and breakfast is a great way to share a romantic holiday, giving both of you a relaxing weekend at an establishment that doesn't feel like a hotel. Small inn's are generally cozier and far more personal than larger hotels, and the Captain's House Inn in Cape Cod definitely proves the point. Sitting on two acres in Chatham, Massachusetts, your romantic getaway will be among beautiful gardens, wood-burning fireplaces, antiques and reproduced Williamsburg furnishings. The Lydia Harding Suite (around $315 a night) is made up of two rooms with a four-poster king bed, double whirlpool tub, a fantasy shower, and a private balcony that's the length of the suite.

As possibly the most famous opera house in the world, taking your significant other to Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy for Valentine's Day would definitely be unforgettably unique, especially if you have to hop on a plane to get there. There are two pretty amazing performance options in February depending on whether you both like opera or ballet more. If opera, Giuseppe Verdi's Falstaff (which was played for the first time ever in 1893 at La Scala) will be playing on the February 12, which tells the story of Falstaff, a minor character who appeared in three plays by Shakespeare. If ballet is preferred, check out the romantic Notre-Dame de Paris, which will be playing on Valentine's Day. For both performances, tickets range from €11 (around $15) to €210 (around $280).
