    Forget fatty chocolates, cheesy cards and the typical dinner routine. Knock your lover's socks off with a sexy treat he'll never forget this Valentine's Day.

    Here's a list of a few ideas that are sure to please him and, perhaps best of all, leave yourself feeling empowered and sexy.

    Get vajazzled

    You may have heard of vajazzling when Jennifer Love Hewitt talked about her love for jazzing up her vajayjay. Well, Toronto's Sugarmoon spa offers Brazilian bikini waxes with a glam touch, by decorating your lady parts with Swarovski crystals in the shape of a heart or your man's initials.

    "It's just fun; it's sexy. (Women) love them," says owner Paola Girotti.


    Salons across the country have embraced this shiny trend. Last February alone, salon staff at Sugarmoon used 2,000 crystals to vajazzle customers, which are offered as a complimentary service all month.

    "It's very popular here. It's good to spice it up," Girotti says.

    The self-adhesive designs, normally $20, last about four days, and can be put anywhere -- breasts, hip, and bum.

    Risque glamour shots

    Show a little skin or take it all off for that special someone. Boudoir photo shoots can capture your sultry side for your sweetheart. And best of all, it's as much of a gift for you as it is for your guy.

    "It's under the guise of a present, but it's a totally self-confidence booster," says Elizabeth van der Bij, a boudoir photographer in Edmonton.

    Key words to keep in mind when searching out a photographer include "intimate", "sensual" and of course, "boudoir".

    Ladies slip on their highest stilettos, laciest lingerie -- or even their boyfriend's hockey jersey -- and strike a naughty pose for the camera.

    "Sometimes I tell them to wear the outfit when they give their man the photos," van der Bij suggests.

    Bring sexy back

    Professional exotic dancers teach you how to peel off your clothes seductively.

    "Who doesn't want to jump into that fantasy role and be that sexy goddess in control?" says former exotic dancer Tammy Morris, now the owner of Tantra Fitness in Vancouver and Langley.

    Lap dance classes, taught by the pros, share the dirty little tricks of the trade, including how to lick your own nipple! Options across the country include teaching pole dancing, stripteases and burlesque shows.

    "What a big surprise to throw you partner in the chair," Morris says. "It's an extreme tease that adds major sparks."

    The two-hour women-only workshop offered by her studio is sure to have him begging for more, and will leave you feeling empowered, she says.

    Offered in Vancouver and Langley, B.C. on Feb. 4 and 5 for $40. Wear lots of layers and bring heels.
