Flowers wilt, chocolates are quickly eaten and who has a need for giant stuffed bears, anyway? This Valentine’s Day, ditch the cliché gifts and get the love of your life something they really want (hint: diamonds are always a good idea). Love isn’t about things, but the right present never hurt anybody! Follow our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide to find the perfect thing to treat your sweetheart to this year.
Show the woman in your life that you are wild about her with this Rebecca Minkoff leopard-print tote bag from Neiman Marcus. The luxury bag, made with dyed calf hair and leather, is as fierce as she is and large enough to hold all her essentials! Or, pamper her with a new perfume, like the feminine Miu Miu L’eau Rosée from Sephora, which features flirty notes of blackcurrant, lily of the valley, cassis buds and sophisticated musk. Planning on a cozy night in this V-Day? Another option is a cozy robe, like the fluffy Natori Plush Velour Robe from Nordstrom in light pink. This warm robe features an extra-soft trim around the neck and hands. It is exactly what she needs for sweet night of cuddling on the couch. Finally, you can’t go wrong with something sparkly! There are many beautiful items to choose from at Mariloff Diamonds and Fine Jewelry. We especially love the 18k White Gold Princess Cut Diamond Pendant, which features three gorgeous diamonds stacked in a row on a white gold chain. It is elegant, striking and unique – just like your girl.
When it comes to men, practical gifts are best. He will love a comfortable robe for cozy nights in with you. We like this Polo Ralph Lauren Cotton Fleece Robe from Nordstrom, which is all-black and made with a breathable cotton fleece. Or, treat him to a new cologne (one that you particularly like!) to make him feel sexy and appreciated. The Roja Parfums Elysium Cologne from Neiman Marcus is masculine and sensual, with top notes of lemon, bergamot, grapefruit, lime, thyme and artemisia. Other ingredients, like rose, apple and vanilla, give it a hint of sweetness, while cedarwood and leather among other notes balance it out with a strong finish. Also, a nice watch is the perfect way to show you care. We love the Hermès Arceau Watch from Neiman Marcus, which features a gorgeous white face with tan leather strap. In the age of smart watches, nothing will make him stand out more than an expertly made timepiece. Still not sure what to get?
