If you will be in for a predictable valentine’s this Saturday, and shudder at the thought of a Clinton’s card and rose arriving on your lap this weekend then it may be time to start dropping some not so subtle hints to your other half!
Here are my top picks for more creative type of gifts and certainly ones that don’t involve an oversized box of chocolates. (No bad thing of course, but for me having to explain where a whole box of chocolate has vanished to and facing the instant bloating that follows is not my best look, and does not, a romantic evening make)!
I would be far happier with the likes of Paul Smith’s special edition valentine’s love heart handkerchief. Perfect for blotting away the tears whilst reading the essay of sweet nothings that fills your card.
At the very least I would adore these Je’Taime earrings and I think my head would spin off into space if I unwrapped the latest Herve bandage dress.
I would give top points for the romance behind giving a funky waist cincher complete with swallows kissing and would find it hard not to fall in love with sweetheart slippers.
Better than a rose that lasts just a few days at best, is a vintage corsage that will last a lifetime and lastly, forget the anonymous ‘be mine’ card, say is with jewellery!
