In the mood for love? We are. In fact, the idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day in a kind of truly, madly, deeply way feels particularly exciting this year – and by that we mean spoiling all the ones closest to our hearts, factoring in dearest friends, sisters, aunts and mothers too. And why not? Afterall, Valentine’s Day marks the perfect time to treat those around you to a thoughtful gift, a small treasure, statement jewel or personalised pick-me-up. Here, a few gift ideas we’ve fallen in love with, from a compact purse and architectural It bag through to neat leather hold-alls and delightful charms that (literally) spell out your L.O.V.E
Roses and chocolates make a cute Valentine choice but why not up the ante by zeroing in on a statement bag that she’ll treasure now and forever? Our new Brie Shoulder Bag in French Vanilla leather is just the ticket: stamped with the house’s signature brass hardware, this modern classic features a sculptural handwoven strap we adore for its unexpected artisanal touch.
It’s true that the sweetest gestures come straight from the heart – and certainly this collection of Letter charms is an elegant way of getting your point across on Valentine’s Day (your combined initials or children’s names would make an equally romantic and sentimental gift). And if it’s time to start planning a return to the office: hide a handwritten love note inside this sleek Elm Wallet And Pouch. Crafted from the finest leather, it’s the ultimate carry-everywhere essential and comes with its own clever removable pouch.
For your mother, sister or niece with a sharp eye for style, we suggest classic jewels with a romantic twist – inspired by nature, the Marilla Cuff is created around an intricate leaf motif, whilst the delicate Valentina Necklace contrasts gold accents with the beauty of Freshwater pearls, two modern and unique Valentine gifts that will illuminate any look. We’re also smitten with our new signature candle, Flower Market, a wildly bright bouquet that combines the delicacy of Rose, Jasmine and Gardenia with the exoticism of Woody Amber, Sandalwood and Patchouli.
Treat him on Valentine’s Day to a matching suite of chic leather accessories (for instant organisation, sorted). Start with the Weston Accessories Box crafted in premium Tan pebble leather, which features gunmetal hardware and neat compartments to store all keepsakes. It might also be time to invest in a matching Card Holder and Watch And Cufflink Box, then set the mood with another of our favourite candle scents, Campfire, a warm seductive fragrance featuring evocative notes of Leather and Anisic with the exoticism of Musk, Woody Oriental, Vanilla and Sandalwood.
