Our totally chic Valentine’s Day gift edit

5 February 2024
By Fashion Quarterly

Celebrate being in love with an abundance of feel-good gestures to make every night feel like date night.

For couples and singleton’s alike, we can think of plenty of reasons to love Valentine’s Day.

It transforms an ordinary weekday into an excuse to celebrate: for established partnerships, perhaps you dust off an annual tradition and make space for one another at your favourite restaurant; for new flames, it’s a chance to take stock and explore how deep your bond is; and for singles, it’s a chance to partake in a social and cultural moment with friends or new acquaintances.

But for all of us – regardless of our relationship status – Valentine’s Day provides us with an all-too enticing temptation to splurge on a gesture of varying scale. Whether you need some help dropping hints to your significant other, or simply want to feel out a treat for yours truly, we’ve got you covered with our annual Valentine’s Day edit.

From personalised jewellery and fine fragrances to creating considered moments with the help of a few daily luxuries, there’s something for everyone. Proceed with caution, lovers…
