Despite the challenges to going out to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, there’s always opportunity at home to enjoy la dolce vita — the good life, full of pleasure and indulgence — with your cherished partner. You can do so with these special and luxurious gift ideas!
Order your partner a pair of custom-made luxury shoes, by Crossover Footwear. Tap into your creativity by designing quality personalized shoes, boots, or loafers with the brand’s online 3-D designer. Combine different materials and choose all the custom details for your made-to-order shoes. These beautiful pieces are made in Spain and serve as a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.
Also, for the special person in your life, something a little intimate can work wonders, with BN3TH‘s underwear Entourage Collection. Their Boxer Briefs are versatile enough to keep wearers comfortable for days in the office, at the gym, or hiking. Another cool part: they’re made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
Valentine’s isn’t complete without chocolate and candy! Lakrids by Bülow has the perfect answer. Since launching in 2007 on the island of Bornholm, Denmark, Lakrids by Bülow has forged an innovative twist, coating their licorice in chocolate. The heart-shaped Love Selection Box comes with six handcrafted flavours, from fruity and sweet to salty and caramel.
Winter’s cold temperatures can play havoc on our skin. Add to that dry indoor heat and the result is often dehydrated, itchy, and cracked skin. Clayton Shagal’s Jojoba and Loofa Exfoliating Body Gel combo revitalizes skin with a boost of natural antioxidants for smoother, brighter, and healthier-looking skin. A unisex daily body gel cleanser, moisturizer, and exfoliant, it gently cleanses with a velvety texture and soothing fragrance, leaving skin refreshed.
Cleancult doesn’t just make yummy-smelling soaps for duo fun in the shower, but their products are fully green. Cleancult offers high efficacy, plant-delivered formulas with irresistible natural scents from essential oils that are tough on grit and grime, and easy on the environment.
In terms of enviable accessories, your partner will love the new RIONA collection by Bentley, a vegan line of eco-friendly, cruelty-free handbags and wallets. Made from biodegradable material and recycled plastic bottles, the RIONA line is available in a range of styles and colours with embedded RFID protection to safeguard personal data, cards, and keys.
Pamper yourself and your partner with Magic Bag men’s and women’s heatable slippers. The ultimate in personal comfort and warmth, the slippers warm up your feet almost instantly, promoting blood circulation, soothing arthritic pain, and helping to release stress.
Celebrate love with an indulgent cocktail to elevate the evening. Sip romantic with Disaronno Velvet with its notes of fresh cream, almonds, and Madagascar vanilla. Or try the all-new Tia Maria Matcha, which is made with natural Japanese green tea. A toast to Valentine’s Day!
