Your Valentine’s Day 2019 Gift Guide

By Pearl Fontaine

February 6, 2019

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and your time to find the perfect gift is almost up. Whether you’re shopping for a budding romance, your best friend, or your one true love, this list should make gifting this year a breeze.

Adeam’s Kira Kira Pochette clutch is a gift you’ll want to give a little early—so your Valentine can carry it to your romantic evening out. Available in a minty green or ivory, the clutch features a gold bracelet handle with crystal details, a removable shoulder strap, and is the perfect size for carrying just the essentials.

If you’re just getting to know your Valentine and aren’t quite sure what they love, then something from Diptyque’s Roses Collection should do the trick. Featuring hair mists, scented candles, hand lotions, and more, the Roses collection includes two rosy scents—Damask Rose and Centifolia Rose—in a variety of products that are likely to entrance almost anyone.

Whether you’re shopping on a dime or your love has no end, Yoox has something for your gifting budget. A few of our favorite Valentine’s Day picks include the burgundy 8 by Yoox beret, the funky pink and red Salar handbag, the pewter sparkly Miu Miu heels, and (you might want to snag this one for yourself) the “I Heart Me” pillow by Cinzia Pascutto.

Everyone knows the way to a person’s heart is often through their stomach. If your love is a foodie, try taking them to Barneys New York, where Freds has just launched the latest installment of the Designer Burger Series. This time honoring the Chinese American designer, Alexander Wang, the burger features Chinese Five Spice short rib on a Chinese style bun, accompanied by daikon radish, carrot slaw, and cilantro leaves, with a side of Freds famous fries. Anyone who tries the Alexander Wang burger will leave with a set of custom chopsticks and has the option of trying a limited-edition Peach Palmer bubble tea (Wang’s favorite) by Boba Guys.

Myriam Schaefer debuted four new Italian leather handbags just in time for next week’s holiday. Available in a rose pink and fiery rouge, the handbags will make both the perfect gift for your Valentine, and a great companion the rest of the year. Our favorite? The Altesse bag in pink.

If you’re looking to remind your love just how special they are, we can’t think of a better way to do it than one of Messika’s signature MOVE pieces. Reinterpreted each year, the collection includes a selection of diamond laden white gold pieces like the Romane ring, the Twin Multishape earrings, and the My Twin 2 Rows necklace, featuring a double stranded chain with an emerald and a pear cut diamond, accompanied by tiny solitaire diamonds.

For the special someone who enjoys hosting at home more than a night out, Clos19 is offering an adorable set of six pink acrylic Moët & Chandon glasses. And for the cocktail aficianado in your life, the brand debuted a limited-edition set in collaboration with Poglia. Featuring a custom corkscrew and mini pocket knife, the set fits neatly into a handcrafted leather case, making it easily transportable.

Once your Valentine puts on the Hermès Nantucket Jeté de diamants watch, you’ll never see them without it again. Simple and sweet, the timepiece features a petite rectangular white gold case covered in a spray of sparkling diamond hearts, and a red alligator leather strap with a stainless-steel buckle.

For the more fashion-forward, try checking out Issey Miyake’s collection in partnership with artist Ikko Tanaka. It’s the fourth volume of the pair’s collaboration, and Tanaka’s Continuous Symbol and Circle works have been imagined as prints on a number of wearable items including coats, pants, shoes, shirts, and more. Some of our favorites include the Circle series’ pants with the colorful confetti-like print and the white and black Continuous Symbol bag.

Moncler’s latest eyewear debuts have us wishing we were our own Valentine this year. Not only will these pink and black retro frames make a charming addition to the perfect holiday outfit, but they make an easy companion into the sunnier summer months.
