Valentine's Day is a lovely excuse to show the person you love, just how much you love them. But rather than opting for the typical gifts that we have all grown to expect, why not think outside the box and buy them something that expresses a little more about how you feel about them? Choose something unique, stylish and decadent. Choose something that says I want you and only you. Choose something that they won't be expecting. 

The New Flame

It can be hard decided what to buy someone at the start of a relationship. For starters, you may not have spent enough time together to really get a feel of what they are into. You may also be unsure of where your relationship is heading. Opt for something that is personal yet not too weighty. Something that is luxurious and says that you care without making them question how you feel about them.

Scent can be immensely sensual, so why not choose some fragrance. Opting for something heady and intoxicating like our Black Rose and Frankincense range means that you can imply sexual longing without being typical. The range includes scented candles, diffusers, hand and body wash, hand and body lotion and room spray, meaning you can combine all manner of these to create a gift basket.

Each item comes in an elegant box, tied with ribbon. The expensive finish and refined quality show that you care but it also means you don't need to be too clued up to her stylistic tastes, so you can't go wrong. By opting for the Black Rose and Frankincense fragrances, you are also buying her roses for Valentines without being conventional.


Girlfriend

When you’ve been together for a while, you're be much more familiar with one another's tastes meaning you can pick a gift that is a little more personal. 

A nice gift for the special lady in your life is a luxurious hat and scarf set. Splashing out on accessories that feel as fantastic as they look, is something people rarely do for themselves. So pick something that will keep her warm when you aren't there. 

Choose a hat in decadent cashmere such as our Tawny Brown Cashmere Slouch Beanie Hat or our Cream Cable Knit Cashmere Beanie. Team it with a soft scarf such as our Praline and Cream Cashmere Knit Snood. You might even like to finish off the collection with a pair of gloves such as our Cream Leather Gloves with Rabbit Fur Cuff.

Just Married

The first Valentine's gifts that you exchange as newly weds should be especially personal and memorable. Take your time in picking out something that expresses your love and devotion.

You may have recently given your wife the most important piece of jewellery of her life, but this doesn't mean that she won't appreciate a little more. Jewellery is always significant, especially once you are married. Pick something elegant and sophisticated, with a timeless beauty. She will want to be able to wear it for many years, with many different outfits. 

Something unique like a piece from our Tahitian Black Pearl range would be perfect. Black pearls are the most exotic pearls in the world, they have a timeless beauty and elegance yet offer a contemporary twist on the classic white pearls. Because black pearls are so unique, they are a lovely way to express your individual relationship. 

Our Vesta Tahitian Black Pearl and Sterling Silver Bracelet and our Fortuna Tahitian Black Pearl Earrings are truly exquisite. You might decide to start collecting black pearl jewellery for your wife, giving her unique pieces for special occasions. Black pearls work beautifully with any colour palette and are highly versatile.

In the Throes of Marriage

When you have been married for some time, it can be difficult to think of new gifts each year. It is likely that gifts may tend to be more practical and less romantic than when you first met. Why not pick something that has a practical purpose yet still has an air of romance? Something luxurious yet useful.

Why not treat her to a luxurious cashmere throw? Our Two-Tone Grey Reversible Cashmere Throw is deliciously soft and sensuous and is realised in beautiful muted tones that will fit in with any colour scheme. Why not buy some champagne, some hand-crafted truffles and a box set of old classic romantic films and enjoy your Valentine's night lost in a romantic movie night whilst wrapped in the decadence of cashmere?
