Valentine's Day should be a time to celebrate love for love's sake. Sure, the stress of the holiday can put a damper on the whole romance thing, but when done right (and really, any sort of effort is always appreciated), it can lead to something extraordinary. That's the goal at least, right? Ordinary is just that. Extraordinary means brilliance, and we want you to give brilliantly this Valentine's Day. So, to help take a little bit of the stress off your planning, here are five gifts that do just that. It's not all chocolates and roses. It's about shimmer, scents, bubbles, and a little magic. It's everything good, just a little bit more extra. Love on.
Is it really Valentine's Day if you don't pop some bubbly? Probably not. Plus, sparkling rosé takes your regular ol' rosé and elevates it to new, effervescent heights.

Two interlocking pendants come together to create a shimmery, layered look in Swarovski's Crystal Wishes Heart Pendant necklaces. The smaller, glittering red heart brilliantly fits within the bright heart-shaped cutout of the other. Talk about showing your unconditional, glowing love. Wishes, especially when shared with a friend or loved one, are better crystallized because why wear your heart on your sleeve when rocking it around your neck means it's actually closer to your real one anyway?
