The Romantic

For Her: Leopard & Lace Chemise
Price: $42

Spending on clothing and lingerie is forecast to increase 2.8 percent this year to $1.2 billion, said Nikoleta Panteva, a retail analyst at IBISWorld. This category is expected to underperform total Valentine’s Day sales partly because the holiday will fall during the workweek this year. Instead of celebrating by spending a night in, couples are more likely to spend a night out and less likely to splurge on lingerie.

Featured here is a leopard and lace chemise from Frederick’s of Hollywood.

For Him: Kimono Cotton Velour Robe
Price: $85

This kimono-inspired robe by Polo Ralph Lauren could be ideal for men who want to relax after a long Valentine’s Day of wining and dining or for those who plan on celebrating the holiday with a night at home. Sold at department stores, including Bloomingdales, this knee-length cotton robe comes in navy.
