Even the most long-term spouses would wonder “what to buy?” when it comes to shopping the perfect gift to their other half. And that is the last question one needs to ponder, with just a few hours to sail through the gift hunt.
Ultimately, it’s the thought that counts. What is his or her favourite thing? What would make them smile? Is he or she romantic or practical?
With that in mind, here’s a compilation of dependable, last-minute gifts that will earn points in your romantic pursuit.
For him: fragrance
Playful and passionate, Boss The Scent for him EDT tugs at the imagination with the unique essence of an African fruit, the maninka, a sensual aroma evocating passionfruit and rum. Opening with top notes of spicy ginger, a heart of maninka fused with lavender and a base note of burnished leather, masculinity has never been so irresistibly.
For her: makeup
You can’t go wrong with makeup, more so themed special edition collections! For the lady who adores dolling up, the Too Faced x Kat von D Better Together collection is a collaboration that includes the Ultimate Eye kit, an homage to the friendship sealed with eyeshadows in both brands’ signature formulas, and the star products of Too Faced mascara and Kat von D Tattoo liner.
For him: bags
Capture a man’s heart by indulging his practicality – such as a bag. Braun Büffel will up his fashion game with a range of bags designed for every guy – for the metropolitan man, the Navajo cross shoulder sling, for the gentleman, a functional clutch from the Rufino collection, and the roving fellow, a handy briefcase from the Chucho collection.
For her: jewellery
Without the element of art, there’s no doubt that jewellery wouldn’t contain its unique spark. For Valentine’s Day, DeGem collaborates with illustrator Michalis Christodoulou to create exclusive artworks for its Forevermark collection to capture poignant moments of a couple’s journey. Pieces like the Endlea diamond necklace in 18K white gold is a beautiful remembrance of love.
For the gourmand: tea and treats
There are the collectors of fine wine, and there are also collectors of exquisite tea blends. TWG raises a cup to love with the dreamy Mon Amour tea, a black tea of candied sweetness, white flowers and exotic fruits, packaged into an elegant caviar tin. Flavour available in delicate macarons too.
Looking for something with a lot more sparkle and gold? These swoon-worthy jewellery and diamonds make irresistable gifts.
