Whatever your feelings about Valentine’s Day – the epitome of romance or all just a bit naff – it’s best to err on the side of caution and not let it go unnoticed. Best, then, to seize on the opportunity to turn date night into a special occasion. And while we’re sure you’ve had the best table in the house booked at that cosy neighbourhood restaurant you both love for weeks now (right?), if you’ve yet to find the perfect gift, allow us to lend a helping hand. Whether she’s a foodie, beauty fanatic or jewellery aficionado, read on for our edit of this year’s best luxury Valentine’s Day gifts for women.

Valentine’s Day fashion gifts

Prefer to beat the crowds and spend Valentine’s Day at home? Even with a great fine-dining delivery and a good bottle of champagne, it can be hard to recreate the atmosphere of a romantic restaurant when you’re surrounded by the detritus of your kitchen-table ‘home office’. What you can do, however, is make her feel glamorous with something gorgeous straight from the racks of Harrods or Harvey Nics. We’ve got a few suggestions…

De La Vali Cosmopolitan maxi dress

There’s nothing more befitting Valentine’s Day than pretty pastel pink or fiery scarlet but, for something she can wear again and again long after, classic black is your best bet. With its romantically draped hem and statement feathered sleeves, De La Vali’s Cosmopolitan grown is a surefire crowd-pleaser.

Amina Muaddi Camelia stilettos

The thought of buying shoes for your other half may feel faintly terrifying – but you can never really go wrong with classic black stilettos. Especially if you choose a pair from brand-of-the-moment Amina Muaddi.

Sleeper metallic pyjamas

If you’re more likely to find her in her pyjamas by 5pm than out dancing ’til 5am, turn to Sleeper – long the go-to for stylish quality leisurewear. This glamorous metallic set features a (kitchen) disco-ready flared silhouette in a scarlet hue woven with metallic threads.

Gucci Heart GG shoulder bag

Making a subtle nod towards Valentine’s Day but in a classic hue that won’t mean you’ve dropped £1,500 on a once-a-year purchase, Gucci’s heart-shaped shoulder bag is a fun update on the brand’s hugely popular camera bag design.

Valentine's Day beauty gifts

We could all do with a little pampering now and then and, thankfully, beauty brands are stepping up to provide Valentine’s Day gifts she'll love. You could buy her yet another bottle of the perfume she's been wearing for years but why not treat her to a properly lavish fragrance? Alternatively, beauty bag classics in pretty packaging make for the ultimate luxury treat.

Creed Wind Flowers

Creed has been creating fine fragrances from its London home since 1760 – so isn’t it about time she tried one? Crafted to celebrate grace, strength and femininity, the new Wind Flowers perfume features sparkling notes of jasmine, orange blossom, tuberose and sandalwood.

Gucci Rouge À Lèvres Voile Lipstick

She probably needs no introduction to Gucci’s Rouge À Lèvres lipstick. It’s been a best-seller since former creative director Alessandro Michele reintroduced it in 2019 – in large part thanks to its huge 58-shade selection. Since then, a number of hues have been redressed in gorgeous vintage-inspired bullets which are in equal parts beauty product and fashion accessory.
