Berry good

The Deluxe Strawberries devised by Fannie May are luscious strawberries dipped in delicious 100 percent real milk, dark and white chocolate, rather than the waxy confection blends used by others.

A farm find

After Audrey Khuner and Carolyn Newman had much success with their small coffee table book "Hot Guys and Baby Animals," they compiled "Hot Guys and Cute Chicks," released this week from Andrews McMeel Publishing, as an 80-page hardcover collection of hilarious photos of male models cuddling up with fuzzy baby chicks paired with fun captions devised as tongue-in-cheek personals giving the likes and dislikes of both the guys and the chicks.

WHERE TO BUY: $9.99 at or local bookstores

Stick to it

It looks like the familiar canister containing the classic children's game of "Pick Up Sticks." But this version is called Sexy Truth or Dare Pick-A-Stick Game and it's only for grown-ups. When faced with either a delicate question or a very daring dare, the fun begins as players reveal secrets or otherwise cave to having to do something they might dread or delight in. The game includes 50 question sticks.

WHERE TO BUY: $14.95 at

History making fragrances

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and Arquiste has got you covered with elegant takes on both flowers and chocolate for men and women alike. Each unique scent comes with a story taken from the pages of history, making this gift just a little more special. Treat your guy to flowers this year with newest scent, Boutonniere No. 7, a masculine gardenia inspired by the "opera flower" that men wore on their lapels in 1899 Paris. This bright, green floral contains notes of lavender, bergamot and vetyvert, and is equally at home on a man or a woman.

WHERE TO BUY: $175 at
