Looking for the perfect gift for your Valentine? Whether it's for a wife, mother, best friend, or neighbor, our gift guide will provide great ideas to help you find just what you're looking for.

1. Does she need to be pampered?  Get her a gift certificate to a spa where she can choose from an array of health and beauty treatments.  A facial, massage or pedicure are sure to please.

2. Is she into the latest gadgets?  Look for a digital camera that would best suit her needs and pair it with a digital picture frame.  Pre-load the frame with pictures of friends and family so that she has something to enjoy.

3. What woman doesn't love jewelry?  Look for a necklace or a bracelet that you think she would like, that way you don't need to worry about her ring size or whether or not her ears are pierced.  Think about getting her birthstone or something personalized like an engraving.

4. Could she use a getaway?  Plan a weekend to a nearby resort, ski lodge, or scenic town.  Take care of all of the travel arrangements beforehand so all your special lady has to do is show up.

5. Does she drink tea or coffee?  Get her an antique tea set with an infuser and some loose tea so that she can brew it herself.  If she's a coffee lady find some imported gourmet coffee as well as an electric grinder and French press or Cappuccino maker.

6.  Does she like to cook?  Sign her up for some cooking classes.  Look for an offering that teaches preparations for her favorite cuisine.  Pair this with a cooking book and some specialty ingredients to get her started.

7.  How about a change from the gym?  Locate the nearest yoga studio and ask about a gift certificate or a small package deal.  Purchase a yoga mat and a cute yoga outfit. 

8.  Is she a working girl?  How about a new briefcase, blackberry or fancy pen?  She will definitely appreciate the accessory and think of you when she's at the office.

9.  A night on the town?  Buy tickets to a play or concert that you can attend together.  Dress, make dinner reservations and enjoy the special night.

10. Does she like to read?  Say it with words, and they don't even need to be your own.  Pick out a novel or a book of poetry that are meaningful to you and write a brief inscription on the inside cover.  That way she'll think of you and the special holiday every time she opens the book.

11.  Need a last minute gift?  You can't go wrong with an American Express gift card, that way she can buy whatever she wants.  Make a date to go shopping with your lady.
