Fresh off of her sexy Super Bowl commercials, Adriana Lima is gearing up for a romantic Valentine’s Day with husband Marko Jaric. But surprisingly, she’s not out looking for any gifts.

“It’s Valentine’s Day — shouldn’t guys be out shopping for us?” she jokes.

Lima is the face of Victoria’s Secret’s new, limited edition Bombshell in Love fragrance, a follow-up to the successful Bombshell scent and “passion in a bottle,” the supermodel says. The perfume — which has notes of pink grapefruit, Asian pear, purple freesia, sandalwood and cedarwood — is $49 for a bottle (and $25 for body mist).

But Lima is hoping for roses this Feb. 14 — and some sexy underthings, too. “Lingerie from Victoria’s Secret is the best gift to receive since it’s the sexiest present in the world,” she says. “I especially love the Body by Victoria Demi Bra and Hiphugger Panty … it comes in a heart print for Valentine’s Day, which is fun and flirty.”

However, if you don’t have a Valentine to celebrate with this year, Lima thinks it’s perfectly acceptable to celebrate yourself: when asked if it’s OK for a woman to buy herself a Valentine’s Day gift, she answers enthusiastically, “Yes!”

But until the calendar hits Feb. 14, Lima will be focused on another holiday: New Year’s. Specifically, her aspirational New Year’s resolutions, which include learning to play piano, doing more boxing, getting a driver’s license and meeting the Dalai Lama. So … how are those going? “It’s still early,” she says. “Still working on those resolutions!” Tell us: What do you want for Valentine’s Day?
