I’m going to preface this by saying that I’m actually single and that my v-day might involve a lot of wine, movies and red underwear from myself to myself. I actually really like v-day, most of you guys probably think it’s quite a cheesy but I guess I just love…love. Does that make any sense? So while I’ll order stuff on net-a-porter with some Drake beats and a glass of Pinot Grigio some of you might have a romantic date or a sushis night with a good movie at home. You haven’t found a present yet right? That’s why I’m here. You’ll find below my cant-go-wrong gift ideas for he and she. Let’s do this
HER We love jewelry and v-day is the perfect time to gift anything involving heart, lips themed pieces. Delfina Delettrez won the game with the perfect ring, we also love this gold pleated necklace or some cool earcuff from my favorite Rue Gembon (budget friendly). Of course there’s the “I might have plans for after dinner” lingerie, this bodysuit from Agent Provocateur is amazing, the details are just w-o-w. Heidi Klum also recently launched her lingerie line and there’s pretty nice pieces. You can’t go wrong by gifting her some beauty products as well, like this Charlotte Tilbury beauty set (I’m obsessed with this brand) , nude or red lipstick will do as well. Can we talk candles (you know how obsessed I am with these) and a romantic night wouldn’t be nothing with candles right? Byredo candles or Le Labo or Bamford or anything as long as it’s candles. There’s also some fashion must-have pieces that can’t disappoint like the Valentino rockstuds or Saint Laurent (and their cheaper versions). We also love this Miu Miu cartholder.
You can’t go wrong with
Ray Ban Wayfarer and any man looks hot with it right? We also love it a little bit more hipster-ish pairs. I feel like mens are always looking for a bag right? I really like this one from Marc Jacobs that is quite affordable. And a backpack from APC will always be useful, remember that. A good and pretty book he could hang on his coffee table as well, like this NOMA or this RIZZOLI. Let’s talk leather goods, like this Mulberry cartholder or this Bottega Veneta wallet. What I usually look first on a man is its shoes (am I weird?) stan smith are great, but sam smith designed by Raf Simons are better. And how hot are black leather boots on a man?
There you go!
With love, F.
