Valentine's Day in Miami: Five Lavish Gifts You Can't Afford
Whoever said money can't buy love was totes in denial (sorry, Sir Paul). How else do you explain the likes of J. Howard Marshall, Doug Hutchison, or Larry King? It wasn't good looks that catapulted those creepy old men into the panties of women who could be their granddaughters. Besides, love's been bought and sold on Craigslist for years.
So if you're looking to score yourself a little lovin' on Valentine's Day and you've got the cash, here are some of the most absurdly expensive demonstrations of affection found in our fair city. No need to be subtle. Women like big, fat, bulging wallets, after all.
Private Island Getaway by the Millionaire's Concierge Club
Generally, private islands are reserved for the likes of Bill Gates, Richard Branson and whatever barely-legal beauties they choose to cart along. But if you've got the bucks, you can weasel your way onto one -- for an evening at least. A private jet, a sunset dinner, a fire pit, and maybe a celebrity or two. Of course, if you were a real man, you could provide this kind of excursion on the regular, but maybe she'll appreciate the $7,000 effort nonetheless.

Parkland-based Gilded Age Greetings delivers your personal message of affection complete with complimentary white gloves for "proper handling," laid in a silk presentation box. The price tag? Just $3,250. NBD.
