Jewellery is always a safe bet, with British brand Missoma offering up some dreamy heart-shaped offerings that we want to get our hands on. In terms of clothes, we’re lusting after luxurious Needle & Thread knitwear, Sezanne star sign tees and Rixo heart patterned shirts.
Candles are becoming an increasingly popular Valentine’s gift ‘for her’, striking the perfect middle ground gesture between casual and full-on married. So, these offerings we’ve chosen from Jo Malone, NEOM and Boy Smells are a safe bet.
Luxury PJs are a great gift – especially during a lockdown – and there’s nowhere better than Desmond and Dempsey, or on a similar route some luxury slippers – can we recommend the UGG Scuffettes?
Happy Valentine’s Day, and more crucially, good luck!
