If giving gifts is your love language, this luxury gift guide will include gifts for him, her, and for partners to enjoy together on Valentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day or any special occasion throughout the year! From clever gadgets to classic presents and even some fun experiences, there truly is something for everyone to enjoy this Valentine’s Day….
LuzFlora – Flowers might be a cliche gift, but I think they are still one of the most thoughtful and beautiful ways to show your love. I also love supporting female-owned businesses and Luz Flora is an amazing Miami-based, female-founded floral company that luckily ships nationwide! They offered beautiful arrangements that are handpicked from the Andes Mountains in Ecuador so I love that travel-themed aspect as well. You can also purchase their empowering coffee table books which are authored by their founder, Macarena Luz Bianchi. This would be a great gift for any of your female friends as well – Galentine’s Day is just as fun to celebrate!
ROAM Luggage – I am a big admirer of ROAM Luggage, in fact I have a full post about it here. One of the most important aspects of planning for a vacation is deciding on the perfect suitcase. I personally want my luggage to be durable and practical, while also being stylish. Luckily, ROAM creates high quality luggage that expresses your personal travel style.
You can choose your own custom design, including the colors for everything like panels, handles, wheels, and even the stitching! They also let you add a free monogram which is such a wonderful personal touch too. I own The Jaunt Custom Carry-On in their gorgeous Rio Fire color which will be sure to stand out and not get lost amongst all the typically black suitcases! Every ROAM item is handcrafted, made-to-order, and you have a 100-day risk free trial, which is rare for any custom products. But that just shows how confident they are in their quality of products. I was not disappointed and really love seeing my initials ‘CE’ on this impeccably designed suitcase.
YSL Lipstick – Yves Saint Laurent, or YSL, is an iconic French luxury fashion house founded in 1961. I’ve always been a fan of their lipsticks which are just as high-end as the rest of their products, offering several couture-inspired colors. They are weighty and sleek in terms of packaging and feel, and also so feminine and beautiful – truly such a treat! You feel absolutely special when you use a YSL lipstick, which makes it the perfect gift. I’d recommend any of them, but especially their Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick Balm collection; several shades can be found at Sephora.
Herschel Supply Co. Duffle Bag – Herschel is based in Vancouver, Canada and is a design-driven brand that offers timeless pieces like backpacks, clothes, travel goods and accessories. I think their duffle bags in particular would make a great gift for that special man in your life! They’re practical yet sleek; I imagine them being used for a weekend staycation or quick getaway. The Herschel Novel Duffle is my favorite choice because it features a super functional side-access shoe compartment. I think keeping footwear separate and easily accessible is absolutely a smart decision, especially for a duffle bag!
Temperature Control Stainless Steel Mug – The newest temperature control smart mug from Ember is such a practical and clever gift! Gone are the days where you keep having to re-heat your cup of coffee or tea at home in the microwave. You can choose the exact temperature you prefer your drink to remain at (between 120°F – 145°F). The battery is long lasting and this temperature control mug will keep your drink perfectly hot for up to 1.5 hours, or all day with the newly redesigned charging coaster! Even more impressive, you have the option to control your mug with an app on your smartphone. If you pair your mug to your phone, you can easily set the temperature, customize presets, receive notifications and more. This futuristic product is fun and useful!
GetYourGuide Experiences (PROMO CODE BELOW) – My absolute favorite gifts are actually experiences, especially travel related experiences! Often times these types of gifts are priceless since you’re creating memories and enjoying quality times with friends or family. In my opinion, GetYourGuide is a one-stop-shop when it comes to booking any kind of guided tours or tickets to certain sights and attractions. This past year I’ve really enjoyed putting in the destination I’m traveling to, along with my dates, and easily browsing through everything GetYourGuide has to offer during my visit. From booking food tours to spooky cemetery walks, and even palace/museum tickets and more, I’ve enjoyed every single one of my experiences and all the local guides have been fantastic.
Honestly, I use their website as a travel planning tool as well because you can just see what every city has to offer! I recommend downloading their app so you can easily have all of your mobile tickets on your phone once you book. PLUS, if you book now with their app, use code LOVE15 to get 15% off your order. And far as gifting an experience, you can obviously book a specific one OR send your loved one a GetYourGuide gift card!
Subscription Boxes – If you read my recent post about unique monthly subscription boxes, you will know there are so many amazing ones out there to choose from! In terms of finding the best one to enjoy with your partner or gift them on Valentine’s Day, I have a couple in mind that would be perfect. Night in Boxes were specifically designed for a date night at home so that’s a no brainer. Each box includes several interactive activities, accessories for ambiance, music, high-quality snacks, a chef curated dinner menu and more!
Shaker & Spoon is another great choice if you’re both mixology lovers. Each box will provide 3 recipes and ingredients you need to make up to 12 delicious cocktails. But if your partner is a fan of jewelry, the Emma & Chloe monthly subscription box is an incredible gift because they will receive a unique new design every month! Subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving.
