What’s your sexy? Valentine’s Day gift guide
From lacy undies and jewels to PJs and cashmere - here are the gifts women *really* want this Valentine's Day. Print and give it to your partner!
Keep it fresh
Channel your inner mermaid on those Zoom calls with an eye-catching pair of sustainable, artisan made freshwater pearl and silver earrings from ethical Northamptonshire jeweller By Clemmie. An heirloom gift to last.
Is there anything more decadent than fancy pyjamas? We think not. This short love-heart print set is from hot leisurewear brand du jour Rails, beloved of Millie Mackintosh. Available from Thackerays in Northampton. You’ll have to cuddle up close to stay warm, mind.
Cheers to love
Raise a glass to love (or for making it through lockdown without killing each other), with these luxuriously elegant silver champagne flutes from Abraxas for those lovey-dovey moments. They even come with a fancy heart shaped stand. Just add celebratory Champagne, or in-the-know Crémant.
Lady in red
Breaking out the lacy smalls for V Day? Impressive effort! This sultry plunge bra set, from Rosie Huntington Whitely’s M&S collection, has an added luxe factor with ornate French designed lace, and comes in a pleasingly inclusive range of sizes.
Bra £28, Knickers £14
Make a move
Obsessed with The Queens Gambit? Ditto. This Scandi-inspired Printworks set works both as your new, freakily pink board game obsession for Lockdown 3 and as a cute 2021 update on the coffee table book – look, admire, and check mate.
say it with scent
Perfume is personal, so try Fiole – the world’s first virtual perfumery, delivering the luxury experience of choosing your own fragrance straight to your door. After chatting to a virtual specialist you’ll receive six cherry-picked scents to find your perfect match. Voila!
Anna Calvert’s Connections designs in hammered silver are handmade in her Northamptonshire studio to represent unbreakable bonds. We love this Embrace necklace – the perfect romantic love token for a long-distance lover.
Lacy undies got you itching in all the wrong places? Then try this mesh set from Calvin Klein’s new Valentine’s Day release – still sexy, but with added comfort factor.
Bra £32, Knickers £18
Did you know that pomegranates traditionally represent fertility? Light up this pomegranate scented candle from Plum and Ashby to ignite your desire. Ooh err. Available from Thackerays of Northampton.
Say it with cashmere
Nothing says love more then, well, the word love, literally. Write it in cashmere and we are head over heels. This super soft, sustainable grey and neon knit from Jumper 1234 is available from Northampton boutique 32 The Guild.
sweet like chocolate
Fact: it’s not truly Valentine’s Day without some indulgent chocolates. From British chocolatier Charbonnel et Walker, these stilettos in sweet packaging look as good as they taste.
