Love is in the air as that time of the year is approaching again.
The onset of February means Valentine’s Day. February 14 is one of the most built-up days of the year. Thanks to the candy and card companies, who turned a 15th century priest’s story into a commercial holiday, we can’t go anywhere without seeing pink, red and white hearts everywhere, ads for chocolate, jewelry and other luxury items, and the expectation that men are supposed to shower their partners with jewels.
It’s a day that requires deep pockets of some whose lady loves are expecting a materialistic declaration of love.
Still, if you want to keep the peace – and earn big points at the same time – there’s certainly no harm in spoiling your Valentine with a little surprise. If you’re single, you may want to indulge yourself on this day. After all, as the luscious blonde in those hair dye commercial says, “you’re worth it!”
Here are some gift ideas for your sweetheart – or yourself.
Give the gift of gorgeous blooms
Whether you present her with a bouquet of flowers, or a single red rose to declare your love, make sure you get to the florist early. Remember that everyone and their cousin will be racing to the florist on February 14, so if you want to avoid being stuck with a bunch of wilted, left over blooms, you’ll want to order early. A word of warning: the markup on flowers on this day will be insane, so be prepared. I
Chocolates and candy
Whether you buy your Valentine chocolates from a fancy chocolatier, or the drugstore, the sentiment is the same, but try to splurge if you can – maybe she will share with you! And chocolate is, after all, an aphrodisiac.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Diamonds (and emeralds, rubies, sapphires and pearls) are a woman’s best friend, and if you get her something along these lines, you will be, too. Bonus points if you listened to her when she talked about those earrings she saw in the store window, and you picked them up for her. But beware – if she’s expecting a ring for Valentine’s Day, be careful about presenting her with a tiny jewelry box.
Buy her a handbag or a clutch
If your love is the more sophisticated type – or maybe she’s watching her figure – a handbag or a clutch might be an ideal gift. Our bespoke luxury leather goods will last and last – long after the last chocolate has been eaten or petal has fallen off the flowers. She will think of you every time she carries her beautiful, quality handstitched handbag, and you can bet that her friends will ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over her new acquisition.
Not sure what to buy her? At Beau Satchelle, we have a large selection of handbags, totes, clutches and cases in a variety of skins, finishes and colors. We’re sure that we will have something to suit her particular taste. We’re thrilled to help you pick something that will make that lucky lady in your life happy. #BeauSatchelleBlog
