Valentine’s Day is one of the most controversial occasions, especially in the times of Covid. Some people say it is a harmful holiday and put an outstanding pressure on relationships. The others say it is a cheerful day and they love to celebrate it with their loved ones.
The way I see it, V-Day is not an overly important day to celebrate but I do believe every occasion is great to celebrate love. And the 14th of February is a great opportunity to gift our loved ones with what they deserve – thoughtful gifts that would show them you know what they want.
Simple, yet always meaningful and elegant – pearls are ALWAYS an excellent gift choice for the Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, pearls have symbolized everlasting love, loyalty and wisdom. They could also represent new beginnings, a fresh start, loyalty and innocence. To me, they are the greatest attribute of elegance and a timeless accessory.
As you know from my past blog articles, I was never really into mass-production and I support independent brands with a soul only. Let me introduce you to Gemondo, a British jewellery brand specializing in fine and demi-fine gemstones and metals. I stumbled across their elegant Instagram page while I was looking for pearl earrings that stand out but are yet timeless and classy. In today’s post I am wearing their Baroque Pearl & Sapphire drop earrings paired with two lovely Pearl & Peridot rings. They caused the WOW-effect with no doubt, and would compliment the majority of my feminine dresses and retro looks. I think such jewellry would make a perfec gift for ANY occasion, not just the V-Day. I am also attaching their incredibly elegant packaging as I believe wrapping is important. The brand offers a next day UK delivery so it would also make a last minute gift idea for all the forgetful lads out there.
‘I only drink champagne on two occasions…’ Coco Chanel once said ‘(…) when I am in love and when I am not’. A few of my friends have a laugh that rosé(S) were practically made for this occasion. Expensive, pink and unique – what more could you ask for? A bottle of champagne is a special treat one would spare for special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day, birthday or anniversaries. I think it would make a PERFECT gift idea for elegant ladies. A bottle of a good champagne starts from around
£30 for a bottle. It is a great last minute luxury gift idea!
Timeless Designer Accessory
This is the sort of gift you would have to really think through. I keep saying buying vintage is the key – especially when it comes to Chanel. This particular advice is probably the most expensive from today’s list and you would have to think it over but Chanel accessories are a great investment in general.
Her Fav Perfume
OK, this might not be a revolutionary idea but is always works. Always. A bottle of her favorite perfume would never go to waste. You can never go wrong with the ‘safe’ gifts. Alternatively, you could also go for niche perfume brands. I got Sunnamusk London as a Christmas gift from my sister, and I love it. She knew what kind of fragrances I use so she was able to determine the leading scents in order to pick the right oils for me.
I have already written quite a lot of blog post about such gift ideas. I would personally be very pleased with such gift. What I have in mind is either a fancy hotel stay, cooking class, bungee jumping, racing experience (for extreme ladies), beauty salon voucher or a plane ticket to an exotic country. It depends on a preference, really. Taking this horrible times into a consideration it would also be thoughtful to support businesses that suffer the most because of Covid situation – restaurants, airlines, travel agents. Most of them offer beautifully made gift vouchers you could use in the future (safer times will come). It could also make a good last minute gift as most of the places offer online vouchers you could either send as an e-mail or print yourself. Go for it 🙂
