THE VALENTINE GIFTING GUIDE - A Handy How-To for the Chaps
I thought it might be appropriate, as I normally offer for Christmas ideas, to create a Valentine gift guide for the guys out there. I know it can be a minefield trying to find the perfect gift for your lady. You don't want to be too cheesy or obvious, but at the same time you also need to steer well clear of anything too tacky that might get you laughed at.
So, here goes...
If your girl loves her dresses, then do your homework and buy a knockout dress that shows off her figure. The homework part? Look at her wardrobe. Take note of what size she wears in what labels, and purchase accordingly. I love this red Tobi dress, the sweetheart neckline is perfect for a Valentines gift.
If your girl loves her sparkles, then a bracelet or necklace with a meaningful, classic motif is another great choice. Hearts and lockets always look fantastic, as do simple earring choices like studs or leverback drops like the ones pictured. If you are not entirely convinced about what jewellery she'd like, then how about a sparkling statement evening bag. Just be sure to gift this ahead of time so she can bring it out to dinner with you.
Finally the gift of love for me will always be shoes and beautiful stockings. These Charlotte Olympia heels are divine, as are the signature blue hold-ups. Classy gifting 101.
Girls, feel free to leave this hanging around on an open iPad to make sure the hints get dropped....
