Best Valentine's Day gifts for women
Monica Vinader, Snake Chain Necklace
Made from 18ct Gold Vermeil, this snake chain is the perfect gift for any minimalist fashion lover. It's the sort of staple that will perfectly slot into someone's everyday uniform. It's also ideal if you're at the jewelry-giving level but not quite at the heart-shaped jewelry level—know what we mean?
SKIMS, Fits Everybody triangle stretch-woven bra
Undies are always a great gift idea for Valentine's Day, whether it's cute everyday sets or full-on lingerie.
This SKIMS triangle bra is a Valentine's must thanks to its "Fuschia" colorway and versatility, plus you could even splurge for the whole matching set. If you ask us, a comfy, supportive bra is never an unwelcome gift! Available in sizes XXS to XXXXL.
BEIS, The Mini Weekend
If you've planned a cheeky Valentine's getaway, this is a great gift to go with it! This mini weekend bag is so convenient with its two-way top zip closure, double zip bottom compartment, built-in padded laptop sleeve and large zip pocket, and two small slip pockets to store all your essentials!
Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau De Parfum 50ml
The fragrance itself features a blend of Lavender, Orange Blossom, and Musk Accord for a deep, sensual aroma that's perfect for a date night...
Now, if you're struggling for gift ideas for the man in your life, we've got a few great options for you, from Calvin Klein boxers to beard oils!
Best Valentine's Day gifts for men
LE LABO Santal 33 Eau De Parfum
A little birdie told us that this very scent is a fave of Nial Horan's! It features a blend of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox, Australian sandalwood, papyrus and cedarwood.
And while it is on the pricier side, it is unisex—so even if it is a gift for your beau let's say, you can still pinch it!
Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser
Who doesn't want a body cleanser that not only smells incredible but looks seriously aesthetic in your shower?
This cleanser from Aesop is enriched with Mandarin Oil and Bergamot Rind to effectively cleanse the skin, leaving a fresh citrus-floral fragrance in its wake. It' also doubles up as a handwash and boasts a non-drying formula, to keep your skin feeling soft and nourished from head to toe!
L’Oréal Paris Men Expert Barber Club Beard Oil
If someone in your life has some facial hair, do them a favor and get them some conditioning beard oil! If this gift is for your partner, it's also just as much of a gift for you, as not only will their beards smell nice but will also be much softer on your face!
This oil from L’Oréal is made from 88% natural ingredients and features Cedarwood essential oil, which works to condition, tame and soften beard hair, while also being non-greasy.
CALVIN KLEIN, Logo-Waistband Mid-Rise 3-Pack Stretch-Cotton Trunks
Again, gifting a pair (or three) of undies on Valentine's Day is usually a good way to go if you're celebrating with a romantic partner this year.
This pack includes three, black trunks with the iconic white, Calvin Klein logo band.
