From small keepsakes, to statement jewels and dreamy date-night fashion, we’ve found the most stylish ways you can show some love this February
Skip the bouquets and leave the commercial cards well alone this Valentine’s Day. Instead, pick a gift that will stand the test of time. Whether it’s a sparkling piece of forever jewellery, or the perfect transeasonal day and dinner dresses, and a seductively-scented token of your appreciation, there are far more individual ways to express your love for someone.
Ignore all the cynics who say wearing pink and red at this time of year is a cliché. Miuccia Prada has already given the vibrant hues her seal of approval by way of a lipstick and pout print dress. And Alexander McQueen embraced the bold and beautiful too, with their exotic hibiscus pink ruffle tiered evening dress is an explosion of femininity.
If small packages are your Valentine’s Day Gift of choice, then consider lingerie or pretty jewels. And a beautiful bag and statement heels never fail to impress, too.
Whether you’re shopping for your friend, sister, mother – or you just need to send you significant other some inspiration – we’ve rounded up 20 of the chicest and most elegant Valentine’s Day gifts to woo you well beyond February 14.
