Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming to pick out the perfect gift that says "I Love You" from the heart. Why not go for the more non-traditional gift this year? There are many unique ideas, especially for South Floridians.

Guys, if you have been waiting to pop the question but trying to figure out the most opportune moment, this is your day. Gain the confidence and give your gal a Gale South Beach & Regent Hotel Suite 13 Package which is filled with $10K worth of special treatment:

* Take over the set for the hotel's soon-to-be-released independent film
* Two nights
* Romantic 10-course, in-room dinner
* Luxury car service from home to hotel, anywhere during your stay, and home again
* Rose petal turn down
* Custom make a love scent with Guy and Girl
* Helicopter ride over the beach
* Table & bottle of champagne on roof with crystal glasses as a keepsake
* Late night heart-shaped pizza snack from Pizza Bar

If you are not quite to that point of the relationship yet, never fear. There are more gift ideas coming your way. Oberle Opticians can offer your special someone a gift that will accentuate their beauty. Luxury shades from Bentley, Sospiri, Thierry Lasry, Chanel, Alain Mikli, Thom Browne and others are waiting for you. Frames are in shades of pink and red to celebrate Valentine's Day with the love of your life. Bentley has just created a limited-edition pair of shades handcrafted from 18K red gold made to order and featuring an engraved serial number ranging from 1-100. If your lover leans towards more expensive taste, the Bentley 'B' sunglasses come with a leather presentation box and a hard case to fit into the console of the Bentley Mulsanne with a price tag of $16,285 up to $50,500 depending on whether you want 18K gold or platinum.

If you want a more low key gift which says "I love you" in a more down-to-earth manner, give her the RumbaTime timepiece in feminine colors of pink, red and purple priced from $20 to $95. All accessories are water resistant, made of silicone and sold in all kinds of styles and colors. Choose from Union Gem, Tribeca and the Orchard Gold watch collections in addition to Chelsea Clutch and Orchard Gem.

Feel free to indulge in another accessory sure to get noticed, the Tissot Swiss timepiece. So many different styles to say those magic words of love. If you know that she is the one, the two-tone white quartz watch is perfect. ($395) If your sweetheart wears her heart on her sleeve, she deserves the Lady Heart Women's Mother-Of-Pearl Automatic Classic Dress Watch ($825) and for the ultimate love of your life, tell her she is the special one with the Tissot Rose Dream Women's Quartz watch with leather strap ($1500).

But as we all know, love is a two-way street and women an reciprocate with a unique non-traditional gift as well.

First, get ready to celebrate the most fabulous night of the year by paying a visit to Blo Blow Dry Bar Midtown where you are showered with attention as you transform your hairstyle into subtle and sexy for your lover. Then you can show your endless love with the Bowery Collection timepieces in canvas and nylon, great for all occasions and water resistant in eye-catching colors.

Let your guy count the seconds, minutes and hours until you are together once again. Tissot will capture his heart with the classic silver quartz watch. ($300) For the 'Urban Gentleman', check out the Couturier Men's silver chronograph trend watch. ($525) To tell him that he is the one and only in your life, give him the Tissot Lelocle Men's black automatic Valjoux chronograph classic watch. ($1575)

Whatever gift you choose to go with, top it off with the greeting card that shares your feelings and gives your heart over to the the only one that will make all your dreams come true. Happy Valentine's Day!
