A Heart-to-Heart Discussion
Only six more days ’til Valentine’s Day, so the pressure is on. What will it be: lingerie, flowers, perhaps chocolates? Fashion and Beauty editor Janet Bennett and Washington Post Shopper columnist Janelle Erlichman Diamond, doubleteamed in a special shopping hour on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 11 a.m. ET and took calls from around the area regarding this age old question.

Take this advice to heart: Don’t stress about what to get your best buddy or about the fact that you can’t get a reservation for dinner at your favorite restaurant. Just take a deep breath and think about how you’re going to enjoy the day. We’re here to help.

South Riding, Va. Caller:
What is an appropriate Valentine for my wife of eight years and pregnant with our second child?

Janelle Erlichman: A big gold medal? Or how about a cool necklace from Alex Woo. She has this great Little Numbers Collection …. where you can pick any sort of number combination. Like “2″ for two kids … or “8″ for the # of years you’re married. or “4″ for the number in your family. That sort of stuff. Check out

Featured previously in The Washington Post was Alex Woo’s Heart Pendant.
