A Haute Valentine’s Day Gift Guide


Some people don’t like Valentine’s Day because they think it’s too commercial of a holiday, but that is exactly the reason why we love February 14. It’s an excuse to indulge in a decadent box of chocolates, that extra glass of sparkling rose, and a luxurious gift from that special someone. Unlike other holidays that involve gift-giving (like Christmas and birthdays), there is no pressure to be practical at Valentine’s Day. Now is not the time to ask for that new set of sheets or blender! Valentine’s Day is the one time of year when you’re allowed to want whatever you want. You can ask your husband, girlfriend, or lover for something not because you need it, but simply because you want it. Jewelry, lingerie, that glamorous party dress or expensive watch—these are the ideal V-Day presents. To inspire and guide you, we round up our top gift ideas below.

For Her

We are obsessed with the color combination red and pink, so we scoured Net-a-Porter for the prettiest looks in these haute hues. Also on our list? Tiffany jewelry, statement handbags, and a little lacy red dress by Major Obsessions.

For Him

For the handsome hunk in your life, we’re loving stylish cashmere, cool watches, and dapper coats. Our favorite places to shop for him? Mr. Porter and Touch of Modern.

For Both of You

No holiday is complete without a spread of delicious eats. We’re talking about exotic ingredients like French duck fat, fresh oysters, and decadent black truffle potato chips from the Yummy Bazaar and Dean & Deluca. Of course, we couldn’t forget the three C’s of Valentine’s day: Champagne (Dom Perignon and Charles Heidsieck), chocolate (Compartes), and caviar (The Caviar Co.).
