With five selections to choose from in this collection, our favorite for the holiday is of course in pink.

Audemars launched the Royal Oak collection back in 1972, shaking up the world of luxury timepieces with that first luxury sports watch. The company has spent decades doing the impossible by improving up perfection year after year. What better way to demonstrate to your beloved that she is the most perfect in your eyes than with a brand that never settles for second-best? Apprx. $10,200

While oysters and intimate apparel may be what some turns some honeys on for love, we know others of you out there can’t resist the smell of something sensual. It is with you in mind that we recommend one of the newest fragrances to be released from luxury fashion house Prada. The amber-based scent hit the market in September with claims of power balanced with grace. Put a big red bow on this one and report back if the notes of citron, rose de mai, and amber worked as well as oysters or unmentionables.

What says “I Heart You” more than hearts packaged up inside of that famous tiny blue box?

And of course, being from Tiffany’s, the diamond key is, well, key to it all. The pendent comes on an 18-inch chain for $6,000.
