Words by Timothy Diao
There's always a reason to celebrate Valentine's Day. Whether you're pushing a decade or two with your significant other, butterflies-in-your-stomach in love with your new partner, or reminded of the love you share with family and friends. There's room for everyone this coming February 14th.
There are plenty of beautiful—and safety-protocol conforming—ways to celebrate this heart-fluttering occasion. Think romantic dinner for two at home, a backyard picnic date, movie night with the kids, and even drinks over Zoom with the gang. It's best to think outside the heart-shaped box and be creative.
But we're also purist in the sense that we love a good, thoughtful gift in classic Valentine's Day RED, of course. This year, we list down beautiful and honestly useful presents in bright crimson hues.
From chic sunglasses to luxurious leather handbags (and even an alarm clock to boot), just about anyone with a great sense of style will love these gifts.
Don't you feel like we tend to discount belts when we think of fashion? This stunning accessory from Salvatore Ferragamo would make you reconsider the power of a good belt when it comes to style. Its eye-catching buckle and reversible leather body makes it a luxurious gift.
