Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her 2017
Best Valentine’s Gifts for Women
by Julia Paddon
While I’d never suggest that boys need a helping hand on Valentine’s Day, the urban legend about the guy who ordered a pizza and then cut it into a love heart still haunts me (and yes, it was his favourite flavour).
So for those fellas who actually want to give something memorable, beautiful and worthwhile this Valentine’s Day, enjoy our Gift Guide, where satisfaction is very much guaranteed…
And we start in the lap of luxury. Tielle towels (pictured above) give a luxury spa feel to your loved one’s bath linen, enveloping them in extra fine, 100% cotton yarn. Perfect for relaxing together. Couple this with a sumptuous faux fur oyster grey throw (right) to add luxury to that other important room, the bedroom.
Towels £45, throw £150 from tielleloveluxury.co.uk.
Shoes and boots are, as all boys should know, vital to a woman’s existence. British company Chatham have one of the best collections we’ve ever seen, from deck shoes to boots, from casuals to waterproofs.
Take a long look through their site – you won’t go wrong with your selection. Or you could take our fail-safe advice and plump for this lovely knee-high leather boot in contrasting shades with neat buckle accessory. Gorgeous.
Chatham’s Knee-High Lena Leather Boots, £90.30 from Chatham.
SKG. EDEN is West Yorkshire’s finest luxury e-florist, specialising in bespoke and sought-after bouquet box arrangements. The company sources the most beautiful, luxurious blooms and every collection is finished with perfection.
They are the ultimate gift for your loved one and will always leave a lasting impression.
Red roses midi collection, £80, Grande collection starts from £110 (pictured £140). For more info visit skg-eden.co.uk, Instagram: skg_eden or Facebook: SKG. EDEN
Gorgeous cashmere top (picture right) in a deep Valentine’s red that has the added bonus of coming from a Yorkshire company. There’s a feast of 100% cashmere products on the Cosy Cashmere site (they’re based in Halifax), but we like this side-split top as it can function as dress-up or casual.
It’s a win-win. You will be loved.
Side-split long cashmere top, £74.75 from cosy-cashmere.co.uk.
“A thoughtful gift”
Three products for gals who love gadgets (see images below). Firstly, the new Braun FaceSpa is a limited edition specifically for Valentine’s Day. It includes a 3-in-1 cleansing brush, exfoliator and precision epilator to effortlessly remove facial hairs. Leaving only a soft and kissable skin behind.
Want a stat? It’s 200 times faster than normal tweezers, leaving more time for, well, anything you fancy!
Braun FaceSpa Ltd Ed, £99.99 from Boots.
If your partner is anything like me, the chances are she will have hundreds of pics on her phone with no easy way of displaying them properly or finding them easily. Photo Story Deluxe helps you create amazing videos and slideshows from your library of images in HD resolution. Remarkably intuitive and easy to use (I admit it, I’m not exactly a tech-whizz), this might be the best place to store and share your memories.
Magix Photo Story Deluxe, £54.99 from magix.com.
A thoughtful gift for the keep fit enthusiast, the Polk BOOM BIT Bluetooth speaker allows joggers or gym-goers to keep all their senses active while working out. Unlike headphones, which cut off ambient noise, the Polk BOOM BIT attaches lightly to clothing (it’s only 7cm x 3cm) and allows listeners to experience their favourite tunes while still fully engaging with their surroundings. Safety first.
£29.99 from Amazon.
