Roses are red, violets are blue, need some Valentine’s inspo? This is for you…
Valentine’s Day. OK, so it’s got an air of Marmite about it. Either you press the turbo button and go full-on love bug with heart balloons, cute teddies and all the chocolates, or you swerve it like there’s no tomorrow.
This year, however, we’re encouraging you to meet Cupid somewhere in the middle. Whether you’re sharing the love with that special someone, feel like treating a good pal or just up for splashing out on yourself, we’re totally here for it. Here are some top picks to get in time for the 14th…
Nothing says, ‘I love you’ like a garm that doubles up as an extra layer for you when you’re cold, right? This chunky cable-knit jumper from Maine is serving country pub meets cosy night-in realness.
If you’re feeling extra flash, we say treat your number one guy to these classic sneaks from Red Herring, too. Made from rugged leather, they’ll elevate his smart-casual look more than his pair of old kicks.
If fragrances are your go-to, Versace Eros Eau De Toilette has an elegant and vibrant finish with notes of comforting tonka bean and dainty geranium. It masterfully combines mint leaves, lemon zest and green apple, making it a perfectly balanced scent that your bff/bf will love.
Or give the gift of time(reading) with this Tommy Hilfiger ‘Mason’ Analogue Quartz Watch, which delivers on both style and substance, with chronograph functionality and three subdials, all set in Hilfiger’s classically recognisable colourways. Handily, it gives them no excuse to be late for drinks again.
Whether your girl is the Che to your Miranda or the Monica to your Rachel, or your mum, a little Valentine’s Day love is always welcome.
Guarantee a dose of zen with a calming Aroma Works petitgrain and lavender candle. Utter bliss. But what really says ‘j’adore’ like a beautiful new fragrance? Lancôme’s best-selling La Vie Est Belle blends notes of fresh orange blossom and delicate magnolia for a balanced floral treat.
Now, it is a universal truth that you can never have too many shoes. And just in time for spring, these cute Grecian-style Fia Asym strappies from Faith will pair perfectly with your gal’s new season wardrobe – surely you can borrow, right? Or if you’re keen to go old school with your gifting this year, this gorge lingerie set gets our vote.
Last, but absolutely not least – if you can’t treat yourself on Valentine’s Day, when can you?
Hot off the shelves de parfum is YSL’s latest fragrance, Black Opium Illicit Green. Chances are, if you grew up in the 80s your mum used to splash on the original Black Opium on a night out, and it’s still just as perfect to spritz on your own nights out. The olfactory wizards at YSL have combined zesty green mandarin, creamy fig and the signature Black Opium coffee base to bring you this fresh take on the classic.
Fancy going big? Then this timeless wrist candy from Tommy Hilfiger’s Ari collection is watch goals as it’s just the right side of all-American preppy. Or channel your inner 90s IT girl with this Faith Lucia Chain Soft Shoulder with ruched faux leather and chunky gold chain which pairs perfectly with these classic heeled mules from Faith.
