10 Valentine's Gifts She'll Actually Like
Customisation, limited-edition and one-off pieces are the personal touches that add thought to a holiday overflowing with cheesy clichés. Whether she's a new crush or the love of your life, show how much you care with one of these gorgeous gifts.
Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne
Perfume is the perfect sensual gift, especially with Jo Malone’s special Valentine’s Day offer: its red roses cologne, with tones of lemon, velvet rose and honeycomb, can be ordered in a roses-filled box until February 6, and engraved in selected stores for an extra special touch.
Narcisa Pheres x Jewelry Maki
Greek jewellery designer Narcisa Pheres' latest collection for the ancient Japanese jewellery house, Jewelry Maki, embraces the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi: perfect imperfection. No two pieces are the same, as the diamond baguettes are scattered in unique patterns and held together with precious 18 carat rose gold. We love the Alayla and Alcina bangle, and Agna twisted necklace.
