Everyone in Charlotte knows one of the best places to go for Valentine's Day gifts is The Red Door, especially if you're sick of teddy bears, heart-shaped candy and flowers. And yes, with three locations in the Q.C., it is a fine establishment to check out, which I did. But I also passed through a couple of other spots that might not be so high on your radar, and put together a gift guide for those interested in celebrating the lustier side of Valentine's Day. Lingerie, sex toys and games, woo hoo!
