I stopped by the CBS Studio for a Valentine's Day Segment where I shared my tips on gift ideas for different stages of a relationship.

There were six categories: dating, boyfriend/girlfriend, friends, engaged, married, and same-sex couples. Whoa- that's a lot of gifts! :)

I had a great time putting this segment together. Here are some of the products I mentioned:


For a couple who' still getting to know each other, consider a box of chocolates or scented candles. The more simple and inexpensive - the  better.

For Her: These metallic frames from Home Goods with a picture of your first date is a gift she will definitely appreciate.

For Him: A set of six glasses from Craft Beers to help him identify the right glass for the right beer- available at Bed Bath and Beyond.
