EventsThe Valentine’s Day edit
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s safe to say that love is well and truly in the air.
This February 14th, it’s time to pull out all the stops and impress your special someone.
While written declarations of love will always have their place, it’s nice to go the extra mile and pair these with a gift or experience that will last a lifetime.
To celebrate the occasion, we’ve rounded up three ways to make them fall head over heels all over again:
Say it with arm candy
Fact: a girl can never have too many hand bags. While her collection may be full of black hand bags in all shapes and sizes, it’s a statement piece of coloured arm candy that she’s missing from her life. Keep on-track with the Valentine’s Day theme and gift her this ruby red beauty from Furla – featuring a quilted velvet fabric and gold accents that will make any outfit shine.
A necklace with heart
Who needs cupid to send your declaration of love when you can do it yourself? Make her heart flutter with this Les Néréides necklace that features two birds carrying a message of love. This is a gift that she’ll be able to wear close to her heart for years to come.
High tea fit for a royal
Treat her like the queen she is with a decadent high tea experience from our favourites at Royal St. Collins. There’s no better place to kick up her heels than in their lush high tea salon, complete with pale pink walls and marbled tables. The menu also boasts delicious petite fours, gourmet sandwiches and every tea you could think of. You can even add a side of bubbly to your order – after all, you’re in for a celebration!
Keep it timeless
For a gift that will stand the test of time, look no further than Bremont’s Supersonic timepiece. Taking inspiration from the Concorde – one of the most famous planes in history – this watch is created for the distinguished gentleman, one who appreciates impeccable craftsmanship and classic design.
A scent refresh
For the man who has everything, a cologne refresh is in order. Available at Debenhams, Prada’s L’Homme EDP is a must-have signature from the renowned fashion house. The scent is as intoxicating as it is timeless, featuring notes of neroli, violet, geranium, cedarwood and patchouli.
Essentials are key
You can never wrong with an essential and this leather wallet from Adolfo Dominguez is a winner. Crafted from a supple aged-leather and featuring unique braided detailing, it’s classic and timeless without being boring.
