This Valentine’s Day, get your lady something she’ll really cherish. From the Little Red Dress to french perfume and lush chocolates, these are our top picks for her.
WATCH by ELI BEAUMONT £69
The marble style trend is alive and well. Independent designer Elie Beaumont has created a range of elegant watches that are luxurious, but won’t break the bank. The Richmond is our favourite: black leather wristband, with a marble face wrapped in rose gold. It’ll go great with her marble laptop cover, marble iPhone case and marble sheets.
PERFUME by BASTIDE AIX-EN-PROVENCE £130
The French independent perfume brand is growing in popularity, thanks to its lush, sweet-smelling fragrances. Your femme will appreciate the uniqueness of the Rose Olivier; the eau de toilette can only be found in-store in France and the US. But you, the clever partner that you are, will order it online. Ah, l’amour.
HEARTY HAMPER by LOVE COCOA £32.99
The brand that brought us avocado chocolate has put together this hearty hamper. Beautifully wrapped with a silky red bow, the box contains four chocolate bars, a miniature bottle of Bottega Veneta Prosecco, loose leaf super berry We Are Tea, a pick-n-mix sweets jar and a Valentine’s card. Order it before 9 Feb to get it in time for the big day!
THE LRD by TOBI
Welcome the Little Red Dress (The LRD). If she receives at least one ASOS package per week and has a penchant for the colour of love, give her an all-access-shopping-pass to TOBI.The US brand has a fantastic range of items from dresses, shoes and accessories, and offers free shipping on all orders to the U.K. Plus, TOBI often runs sales, so she’ll get more for her money.
WALLET by YVES SAINT LAURENT £1,050
Fashion is for fun, YSL is forever. We’ve coveted this bag for a very long time. Despite its YSL monogram, it doesn’t scream designer, it whispers understated French style. It’ll cost you, but she will love it.
FITBIT ALTA by TORY BURCH
If she loves her fitness as much as she loves her fashion, get her the new Fitbit Alta designed by Tory Burch. The bracelet looks like an expensive accessory but comes with all the health benefits. Win-win.
CHOCOLATE by BEAN LONDON £45 – £120
A box of chocolates? That’s for amateurs. Instead, get her the gift that keeps on giving with a subscription to Bean Chocolate London. She’ll receive a new box of gold wrapped chocolates every month. Bean isn’t your average Cadbury either, the brand has quirky options like the bacon (!) and salted milk chocolate bar. Choose between a three, six, nine or 12-month subscription.
NIGHTWEAR by AGENT PROVOCATEUR £1,995
Made from the softest blood red silk crepe, the kimono features a hand-embroidered lotus flower with thousands of glittering beads, sequins and crystals. It’s part of the demi-couture range and comes with a hefty price tag. Probably one for couples who have hit the one-year-mark, at least. Unless you’re feeling very generous, that is.
BRACELET by TIFFANY & CO. £5,600
Ah, the egg-blue Tiffany box. Whatever it may contain, it’ll put the sparkle in her eyes as she opens it. Unless you get her a keyring, of course (really, don’t). This year’s favourite – if you can afford it – is the 18k rose gold link bracelet inspired by the industrial spirit of NYC. The exclusive, contemporary design is timeless.
