1. Ellermann Flower Boutique
‘When in doubt, buy flowers’ is a sentiment that rings true for so many occasions in life — for newborns, birthdays or a host with the most. They’re also a winner for Valentine’s Day, especially if they’re as extravagant as the options at Ellermann, whose team this year has curated a bold and sensual trio of bouquets that depart from the traditional but are as striking as always.
2. Tiffany & Co.
When it comes to foolproof gift ideas, there are a couple of iconic coloured boxes that never fail to spark utter joy – and one of those boxes is the robin’s-egg blue hue of Tiffany. If your love isn’t a jewellery person (or isn’t after a ring… hint hint), the store’s home and lifestyle accessories are just as to-die-for.
Just as covetable as the little blue box is the little orange one. Hermès, the luxury French fashion house that needs little introduction, is a playground of precious treasures rooted in exceptional craft. The maison’s Clic H bracelets are a classic, as are the vibrant printed scarfs and pocket squares.
