Heidi Klum loves love, so it’s no surprise she’s a big fan of the holiday that celebrates it in all its forms — Valentine’s Day. Plus, the model, host, lingerie designer and mom of four, 45, has one more reason to fall for Feb. 14 this year: She’s newly engaged to fiancé, musician Tom Kaulitz. That’s why when it comes to getting ideas for sweet gifts, we turned to Klum for some suggestions. Here’s what the model picked out.



“Valentine’s Day is all about the sexy lingerie,” Klum tells PEOPLE. “I would go all out with a matching bra, panty and suspenders set with thigh-high stockings and sky-high stilettos. Wear something special for him but also for you to feel absolutely stunning in. I love a lace-y set in a gorgeous red. Even if you plan to surprise your partner later that night, or you’re wearing it for yourself, putting on a super sexy set of lingerie gives you a confidence boost.”

“Homemade gifts are easy to make and can be a great way to spice things up,” says Klum, who got engaged to musician Tom Kaulitz over the Christmas holiday. “I-O-U cards or gift cards for a candlelit dinner with your favorite homecooked meal or a massage are super cute. You can scatter them throughout the house so they find them one by one during the day. It’s a fun to find little surprises with sweet notes written on them. They are always best when least expected.”

Heart-shaped balloons

“Waking up to a room filled with Valentine’s Day-themed balloons is guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face, no matter how old they are,” says the mom to Lou Sulola, 9, Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo, 12, Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu, 13, and Leni, 14. “We are big fans of balloons in our house.”
