Valentine's Day Gift Ideas That'll 'Wow' Her
Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so that means it's time to buckle down on finding the special lady in your life a great gift. Whether you're shopping for your wife, mother, sister, friend, grandmother, or girlfriend, finding a Valentine's Day gift to show that you care can seem like a huge undertaking.
To narrow down some of the work for you, we've put together your 2017 gift guide to make this Valentine's Day a perfect one.
A Staple Piece
Nude pumps have long been a beloved staple piece in the closets of women everywhere (and a new pair is never a bad thing). Make this Valentine's Day a sure-fire success by gifting her a pair of nude heels to rock during a night out or
at the office.
Structured is one of the biggest trends going on right now, and you can find strong structuring in dresses, tops, and bags. So we suggest finding something nice and structured to let her edge up her style whenever she wants.
Structured bags like the Loewe Puzzle
also offer up another interesting detail that's trending: geometric shapes. The Puzzle bag, for one, can also be folded into different shapes to transition from a full satchel to a backpack or clutch.
The Phantom bag
, from Celine, offers the best of both worlds: it's structured and has interesting designs, but it is also functional with expanding wings and plenty of interior space. Similarly, the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit
bag is extremely popular and is the perfect in-between bag involving some structuring and plenty of style for a Valentine's Day gift.
At a lower price point, Rebecca Minkoff makes excellent structured bags that are perfect for essentially any occasion
– and some of them are similar to our next recommendation, the Chanel Boy bags.
A Chanel Must-Have
If there's one thing a lady would love for Valentine's Day, it's a Chanel bag. It's classic, extremely valuable, and extremely high-quality. So be sure to check out some of the must-haves at Chanel, like the classic flap and boy bags they're known (and adored) for.
Because we're huge fans of Chanel pieces, we recommend the Chanel camera bag
and a unique black & white flap bag
for this Valentine's Day.
Don't pass up luxury if the important woman in your life would prefer vegan alternatives that are cruelty-free. Brands like Stella McCartney
and Urban Expressions
are doing things the right way and creating fine vegan leathers from sustainable materials– and they're made to last.
Depending on what suits her best, you can find luxury vegan clutches, cross-body bags, backpacks, satchels... you name it! They're even fitting into the biggest trends, like this Stella McCartney
take on the ever-popular fringe.
There's nothing quite like getting a delightful and beautiful piece of jewelry as a surprise. If you want to make a statement with your Valentine's Day gift, you could also consider getting the important woman in your life something like an extravagant cocktail ring
, classic watch
, or designer sunglasses.
A Wallet She'll Love
Understated but classic and functional, gifting a wallet to the woman you care about offers her a thoughtful gift. Take a look at the purses she's most likely to wear and go from there. If she tends to love big bags, take your pick between larger and thicker wallets like the Chanel Paris-Edinburgh wallet
or a more compact Dior wallet.
If she loves slimmer bags, perhaps a Louis Vuitton monogram vernis
Sarah wallet is the perfect fit. Similarly, designers like Tory Burch
or Michael Kors
sit at a more affordable price point and create astounding, high-quality pieces that would make perfect Valentine's Day gifts.
Something that tells a story
If you want something that's perfect for any season, consider a light scarf or twilly. Each scarf and twilly from Hermes comes with a story, so let her indulge in the luxury and history that comes with each design. From La Maison des Carres
, Hermes has over 140 designs for you to choose from and perfect match to her everyday style.
To give you an idea of how fabulous these pieces look, the "Concours D'Elegance"
scarf as well as the "Tohu Bohu"
Twilly scarves all make the perfect Valentine's Day gift.
A Gift to Make Her Go Wild
Animal prints and exotic leathers can spice up any Valentine's Day gift. Make her go wild with bags like the Chanel black rabbit fur signature "CC" flap bag
or the wild Louis Vuitton Exotique
But if you're looking for a bag that has the glamorous look of fur without the price tag, purses like the Dolce and Gabbana leopard print cross-body
could be the perfect choice. But remember, this D&G bag may not have fur, but the trim is leather. So if you're looking for a vegan-friendly animal-print bag, Urban Expressions carries beautiful options, like this faux snake skin tote.
Get Personal with Tiffany & Co.
Nothing says glamor like Tiffany & Co.– that's why these luxurious pieces make perfect Valentine's Day gifts.
The heart pendants that Tiffany & Co. can remind the important lady in your life that you care every time she wears the piece. And because Tiffany & Co. is making headway in giving their customers what they want, you can also choose to personalize a Tiffany & Co. piece
to say exactly what you want to convey with your gift.
A Luxury Scent
Scent is one of our most important senses, and it's very closely tied to our memories. That's why perfume is one of the best Valentine's Day gifts you can get your hands on.
We personally recommend the Dior Hypnotic Poison perfume, which is an in-office favorite among us. The Dior Poison line is known for demure, sexy scents that expertly mix sweet and woody notes to create unforgettable scents.
If you want to gift a perfume that's versatile, you can also opt for the Louis Vuitton Miniature Set of Fragrances.
Described as a very floral-based collection, this set really offers the chance to sample and find a favorite in what's the first time in 70 years that Louis Vuitton has launched a perfume.
So, when you're shopping for the perfect Valentine's Day gift, don't forget to take a look at these staple pieces for some inspiration. Trust us, whoever is receiving a gift of this caliber will love it.
