The Valentine’s Day gift guide
The red items edit for a stylish Valentine’s Day
It’s almost Valentine’s Day – that day of the year when you celebrate the love for the people you care the most. Whether you are in a relationship or single it’s a great opportunity to remind yourself or the other one how much you appreciate each other. Valentine’s Day has a different meaning to everyone – some people like dress up for a night out (without forgetting roses and chocolate), while other might prefer to have a quiet night with their partner. Either way, it’s a day to spend with our loved one to celebrate and remember love. If you like to give and receive gifts, there are so many ways to show to your partner how much you care about him/her. If you are more a minimalistic type – a box of chocolates, flowers and some DIY presents are always a good plan. My favorite one is a handmade photo album with the best pictures of your years together or your last trip. It’s a nice handmade present which shows how much you care about the other person! Whatever you decide, here a guide throughout our favorite sustainable gift for yourself or your partner.
1 – Scented candle
Le Labo’s generously sized soy wax candle has been blended in the label’s workshop and poured in a handcrafted concrete vessel. It’s infused with a slightly sweeter version of the brand’s ‘Santal 33’ Eau de Parfum, with smoky, leathery notes that really suit interior spaces. Place it in the larger rooms of your home, where the fragrance can circulate.
2 – Lipstick
Ilia’s ‘Woo Hoo’ lip balm conditions your pout while imparting a just-bitten red tint. Enriched with Cocoa Butter and organic oils including Avocado, Sesame and Cranberry, this creamy formula moisturizes for all-day comfort and is infused with SPF15 sun protection, too. Swipe a few times to build color.
The name alone makes WALD Berlin’s ‘Be My Lover’ necklace such a sweet Valentine’s gift or spontaneous romantic gesture. Handmade in Germany from gold-plated brass and silver, it’s strung with red Swarovski crystal hearts and tiny freshwater pearls.
4 – Lingerie
Stella McCartney’s soft-cup bra is made from pretty stretch-Leavers lace. It has satin-covered buttons and delicate ribbon straps that can be adjusted for the most comfortable and supportive fit.
Olivia von Halle’s ‘Mimi’ robe is cut from soft silk-satin in a kimono-inspired silhouette. Finished with navy piping, it has wide sleeves and a detachable belt to cinch the loose shape. You can wear it while lounging around the house or over jeans or a dress as part of an evening outfit.
6 – Beanie
RE/DONE’s beanie is guaranteed to keep you warm and cozy on chillier days. It’s knitted from super soft cashmere that’s renowned for its naturally insulating properties and has a ribbed finish.
