Cupid’s Corner: 5 gifts for your loved one this Valentine’s Day
It’s the month of love, which is also my birthday month, so I thought I’d share with you some great gift ideas for your someone special, or even your favorite influencer *hint hint*
My first tip for gift giving is that you should try to be as thoughtful as possible, try and remember what your person is into and bring that idea to life.
My second tip is that you can never go wrong with flowers. Even you lady fashionistas, can get your man a bunch of flowers these days, especially ones packaged in the classy boxes at Allure Afrique Flower Box. Pre-order any flowers you like from Allure Afrique and they will deliver it straight to your partners, home or office nationwide. Check them out on Instagram (@allureafriqueflowerbox)
Another gift you can never go wrong with is perfume/cologne. Prada has some really romantic scents for your lady/man. My personal favorite for the ladies is Prada Candy fragrance; it has a really romantic scent and is perfect for date night. For your man, Prada has a fresh scented L’Homme Prada aftershave balm that will also add a bit of style to you man’s side of the bathroom sink.
Everybody loves a relaxing date, so this next gift is a date at the La Mer counter in Hyde Park corner. La Mer offers facials for men and women as well as a consultation on how you can continue to treat your skin well and fight the signs of ageing before they even begin. Staying forever young together is pretty romantic if you ask me. Book your facial (with Nina, my fave) as soon as possible before they are booked out!
Another gift I find to be one both men and women appreciate is a pair of shoes. No one can have enough pairs of shoes. I love to get my shoes at Steve Madden. For the ladies, the most romantic shoes Steve Madden has at the moment are the ‘Carrson’ or ‘Scarlett’ heels. For the gentlemen, Steve Madden has the Quodis high top sneaker, this shoe comes in red and black but I think the red is bold and of course goes with the theme of the day. Love love love!
The last thing that I think you can never go wrong with, for women and men, is jewelry. Getting your lady or man a watch or necklace is sweet but I think the ultimate gesture of love has got to be the Cartier love bracelet. My husband and I have love bracelets and I just adore it because it’s a timeless piece that one can look down at everyday and know just how much their person loves them.
What will you be getting your bae this Valentine’s Day?
