Fortunate enough to find yourself in the deep throes of a codependent relationship that thrives on gift-giving? Welcome to our hand-picked selection of Valentine’s Day gifts for her. It comes around quicker every year, so luckily your team here at BH has got your back to make sure you knock this year’s Valentine’s Day gifts out of the park. We’ve looked beyond the boring bouquets, the scented candles and massage vouchers to provide you with a Valentine’s gift list that will keep that fire burning.

The Avalon Towel

If there’s a relatively new romance in your life, aim for something personal, but keep it top-line. Been for a swim together over the summer? The Avalon Towel ($240) is the beach towel equivalent of a designer handbag and will fit both of you cosily on one sheet, but if she’s hunting that designer label then a Gucci Ophidia card wallet ($770) will tick the box without breaking the bank.

As an intoxicating, modern scent, Si by Giorgio Armani (available at Chemist Warehouse for $109.99) is a homage to modern femininity and is perfect for the lady that enjoys the subtitles in life. The virtuoso blend of blackcurrant nectar with modern chypre and blond wood musk is accented by freesia and May rose scent, creating a sophisticated and deeply complex stunner. If she’s more inclined to enjoy fruity and floral notes, Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Eau So Fresh (available at Chemist Warehouse for $59.99) is an EDT with some serious style designed as a captivating and flirtatious tribute to both. Pink grapefruit and raspberries linger on the top, opening up into wild rose and anchoring down into soft musks, resulting in a simple and deeply pleasurable scent that lasts for hours.

A new pair of water-friendly Birkenstock EVAs ($91) will do nicely as you take her for a sunset walk along that gentle ebbing tide, or take the sunset to the streets and kit her out with a fresh pair of New Balance CT302s ($150).  If beachy PDAs aren’t the thing, she’s a tap-and-go kind of woman, or you don’t know her shoe size, tee her up with a Lack of Colour Wave Bucket hat ($130) or a pair of the new Today sunglasses by Pared x Tahnee ($230) or a lil’ bottle of Les Mains Hermes Nail Enamel ($75) for three gift options that say “I like you, let’s see where this goes.”

Blundstone 1671’s

For the gift recipient who is less inclined to spend a day in the sand and getting dolled up for a night out is more her speed, a pair of Valentino Garavani TipToe Pumps ($1,570) will earn you some serious brownie points on her chic spectrum (as would a pair of Blundstone 1671’s ($230). Why not both? She can carry her spare pair in her Parke Suede Tote from The Row ($2,450), or when her shoes are paired with a Faure le page 12cc Wallet night (US$800) you know she’s going to look a hell of a lot better than every other basic Betty carrying a micro bag that fits nothing but a lip gloss. Speaking of which, Westman Atelier’s Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm ($63) is a guaranteed home run in the Valentines gifting department, and you’re on a hat trick if you pick up a bottle of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge ($388). You’re already at Mecca – you may as well.

If you’re not into spending Valentine’s Day out with the masses, pull one out of the hat and set the table at home for a romantic night in with the sweet sound of Big Bash humming quietly in the background. Start with laying Lisa Corti Table Cloth from Pan After ($330), throw on a Maison Balzac J’ai Soif Carafe ($89) and a set of tumblers ($89), pop a cork on a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée ($369) or a Bill Downie Pinot Noir ($71.99) and let the magic of a well-set table take over as you serve her favourite meal on a Soft Edge Studio Rolled Rim Dinner Plates ($160). Can’t cook? Don’t fret. Open a packet of Bonilla a la Vista Patatas Fritas ($9), lather it with some creme fraiche, and crack open a tin of Beluga Caviar ($210) to seal the deal.

If you’re ready to dive right into the deep end, no Valentine’s Day gift hits like a nice sparkly piece of jewellery.  Thinking of a necklace? The Piaget Possession Pendant ($3,300) is an ultra-fine piece for her decolletage, and it’s a piece of jewellery that makes a statement for a lifetime. Likewise, over in the bracelet department, a Cartier Juste en Clou ($7,150) is one of those pieces of jewellery that let people know. It’s avant-garde, audacious, and is a sublime take on the ordinary (and, dare we say, cooler than their standard love bracelet).

If earrings are more her speed, A Seb Brown Robot Earring ($1,145) melds nine-carat yellow gold with Swiss peridot for a timeless look that she can wear to every black-tie event she’ll ever attend as long as you both shall live. And if she’s always running 20 minutes late, a subtle $4,000 hint in the form of a TAG Heuer Carrera ($4,000) ought to get her back on schedule.

Finally, if courting is done, there’s a ring on the finger and/or kids running around, keep it real with something that is both wanted and needed. Feeling a little sleep deprived? Some linen-wear that doubles as Pyjamas from Deiji Studios ($249) might help her feel and look less so. Ageing concerns? The Dr. Dennis Gross Spectralite Faceware Pro ($709) is nothing short of terrifying to look at, but the proven results are hard to argue with. Skin a little dry? No shame. Body lotion may not seem like the most exotic gift to hand over, but Tronque’s Firming Butter ($130) will have the rig feeling as luxurious as can be. Decades spent staring at a computer screen finally starting to take its toll?

Don’t let her fall down the slippery slope of multiple pairs of pharmacy reading glasses. Instead, grab her a pair of Scanlan and Theodore Chloe Opticals ($495) and send her off to the optometrist for a custom lens. And, as always, when in doubt – hit the lingerie. This year, nobody is doing it better than the Skims Valentines Day Collection (starting at $30) featuring everybody’s favourite sex workers in the ad campaign. Bellissima.
