Let’s be real girls — your man can’t read your mind. This Valentine’s Day, instead of helplessly dropping hints that he might or might not get, why not send him your wish list so everyone’s happy?
Here are some ideas you can show him to prevent unnecessary disappointment on Feb 14. We’ve picked out some pieces that come in the fiery shade of red.
The hue is gorgeous, plus it’s a romantic colour that represents love and passion. Sure, unwrapping your gift might not be super exciting, but it’s better than exchanging it for something else, no?
Wishlist: Luxury goodies
If your beau is a generous fella who is willing to splurge (lucky you!), we suggest picking something that is a great investment.
We’re talking about the Chanel 2.55, which boasts buttery lambskin fabric and sleek silver-tone hardware.
Instead of opting for a piece in black, ask your beau to get one that pops.
Wear it with a pink floral maxi number to give off a feminine vibe or a bomber jacket for a contrasting look.
Made out of soft silk and watercolour-inspired floral prints, spice up your accessory game with this bold Gucci scarf. Jazz it up as a head scarf, or as an arm accouterment for a sassy touch to your ensemble.
Add this floral motif brooch to your wish list if you want something more tangible than roses on Valentine’s Day. Wear this with a white cotton poplin shirt and a pleated midi skirt to inject subtle notes of artistic femininity.
Ask your partner to show his love for you with this pair of luxurious black leather booties from Valentino (but promise him you won’t make a run for it).
The quilted leather and stud details contrast with its dainty heart motif, which will be perfect if you prefer a more edgy, androgynous look. Wear it with a silk blouse and a pair of black denim jeans for a rocker edge.
Featuring a series of stunning round rubies, this delicate Tiffany & Co necklace will add a smile to your face.
Wear it with a loosely buttoned blouse and a pair of jeans to let this sweet piece be the centre of attention.
Glam your au courant Apple device up with this bright casing.
Featuring a red upper that emulates Christian Louboutin’s iconic red soles, this protective case is not just aesthetically pleasing, it is also made out of shockproof rubber.
Practical and fashionable? We’re sold.
