Oh, Terry O'Neill, you genius you. Though we all won't be able to snatch up one of the 300 limited edition copies of Terry O'Neill's new book, $799, those who can will enjoy a comprehensive look at his 53-year career and a special collectible, never before seen print of Brigitte Bardot taken in France in 1971. Swoon indeed.

Wrap Her Up

A quality robe is a staple for any lady. Make her feel like a princess by wrapping her up in a Giacomo hooded bath robe from Missoni Home, $369.99. She'll love it so much she might even want to wear it outside of the house (just kidding, kind of).

When in doubt, purchasing a spa experience for her is a great move, but don't just choose any old spa, make sure you send her to Auberge du Soleil in Napa for some much-needed r&r. Treatments vary in price, but start at around $240, plus since you'll already be in wine country, you can squeeze in a few tastings and make a trip of it, a win-win for all.
