With Valentine’s Day about a fortnight away, it’s time to start thinking about that perfect cadeau for our loved one. This year, there are a host of innovative and unique gift ideas for the favorite people in our lives.
In lieu of the traditional fleurs, why not select ‘forever roses’ dipped in 24K gold, silver or platinum or gold-trimmed rose jewelry by Eternity Rose? Or a curated “Love Box” from Bouquet Bar, featuring delicate red spray roses along with lavender dark chocolate drops, sugar coated sour gummy hearts, old-fashioned caramel corn, gummy bears and a scented candle.
Create a warm, cozy St. Valentine’s Day at home, binge watching our favorite Rom-Coms, wearing Tani USA’s silkcut leggings, lounge shorts or ultra-comfortable pyjamas, or a monogrammed luxury cotton robe by Luxor Linens. Or give your honey a hug and massage with Comfitude™ luxury faux fur weighted comforter. The blanket creates a mild pressure known as deep touch pressure stimulation that is akin to being held, promoting a good night’s sleep and the feeling of experiencing a full body massage.
Cashmere is always welcome with super soft, gorgeous wraps and sweaters from Kinross, (a personal fashion hit during a recent trip to the Sundance Film Festival), uber-stylish denim or jackets from KUT from the KLOTH or special occasion dresses by Speechless for the big night. Dara Shoes’ Siena Slippers are perfect for a romantic stroll.
Jewelry is always apropos, with modern lockets from A Token Of, designed to be worn with intention, symbolizing a special trait of each owner. Italian-inspired jewelry designers – NY based Mari Tome’s gorgeous and truly unique designs or one of the beautiful creations by Marina del Rey, California-based Maddelena Bearzi, will delight with their unparalleled artistry.
To truly capture your Valentine’s Day forever, why not experience the THETA V camera from RICOH Imaging, one of the first user-friendly 4K, 360° cameras on the market, or top of the line earphones from Oomo Sound to listen to your favorite love songs.
For the connoisseur, Egan’s Legacy Reserve, a limited release (only 1,000 bottles) single malt Irish Whiskey is sure to appeal to the refined spirits lover, or the most expensive perfumes per ounce by Clive Christian will definitely score points.
Should you be in Vancouver, Canada, reserve an evening at the recently revamped luxury property Exchange Hotel that will feature a special Valentine’s package, available exclusively from February 8-19 that includes sparkling wine, charcuterie plate, complimentary breakfast for two, afternoon hors d’oeuvres, turn down service and late check out. While in town, a romantic dinner at The Victor for a classic seafood and steakhouse experience, authentic Italian cuisine by Don Francesco or an elegant brunch at Yew seafood + bar, all come highly recommended.
Now to get ready for the big day, some of the latest products to beautify and rejuvenate include the Ultrasonic Hifu Skin Lift and Wrinkle Removal Portable Machine, QYKSonic’s Zoe Collection, the Banish Kit 2.0 featuring a new patented system that improves skin appearance, and Orogold 24K skincare products. Luxury hair care brand T3 micro’s newest launch is a stunning rose/rose gold collection of hair tools, including the easy to use SinglePass Curling Iron, to create beautiful styles.
Happy day lovers for what’s sure to be a memorable day on February 14, 2019!
