The downside to being incredibly successful is that you make money but don’t often have time enough to spend it at leisure. If, as usual, you’ve been burning the midnight oil at work and haven’t picked out a Valentine’s Day present for your wife, girlfriend or ‘significant other', The LUXE is here to help.
Here are 5 luxury ‘late lateef’ gifts that are guaranteed to have your girl gloriously happy — and when she’s happy, you can bet she’ll return the favour!
Gadgets aren’t just for guys. Buy your girl an iPhone 6 — it’s the perfect partner to the Louis Vuitton handbag you bought her last year (if you didn’t, you should have!). Available in silver, gold (our favourite) and space grey, the iPhone 6 features an A8 chip, Touch ID, ultra-fast wireless, a new 8MP iSight camera with focus pixels, iOS 8 and an HD retina display. But tech specs aside, buy it because it’s sexy and she will love it!
Arm candy by Gucci
If you’ve bought up gifts galore from LV and Bottega Veneta in the past, we strongly recommend a trip to the Gucci store. Personally, we’re addicted to their Guccissima leather — but this year we’re going for gold! Choose from the ‘Soho Metallic Leather Shoulder Bag’ with embossed interlocking G and tassel details or the golden-beige leather ‘Bamboo Shopper’ with its subtle branding.
It’s too late to buy up a bagful of Agent Provocateur lingerie (next year, plan better and enjoy the results), so do the next best thing. Opt for a fabulous pair of pumps from Jimmy Choo or some red-soled divinity from Christian Louboutin. Dior’s pointed-toe suede calfskin pumps are pure paradise in pink and if your ladylove already owns a hundred black shoes, these are sure to win you big brownie points.
It’s Rolex time!
There’s a lot to love at Rolex, but if you need pointing in the right direction, why not buy the Datejust Lady 31? It’s a midsize timepiece that offers a modern take on the classic Datejust and Lady-Datejust models that Rolex has offered in the past and is characterised by unique dials and diamond-set bezels. We’re fixated on the steel and yellow gold, but the yellow gold and diamonds version is ideal for a lady who loves her bling!
Upgrade her sparkle
If you’ve already splashed out on a 2-carat solitaire, why not up the ante with a brilliant, round 4-carat dazzler? Size does matter — especially in the diamond department — and you can never go wrong with a bigger and better stone. You may be left lighter in the pocket for it, but it’s a smarter investment than a designer bag in the long term and she’ll be floored for sure!
