Our Interior Lovers Valentine Gift List
When it comes to gifts for your loved one, valentines day is the time you can really spoil them and get them something that says 'I love you'. I have rounded up a few things I have seen this year that may help you say 'I love you' to that special someone in your life.
Luxury cushions are a must for any stylish bed, sofa or armchair but they aren't always something that gets top of the list when it comes to your budget for home repairs or renovations. Normally classed as a 'luxury' purchase there are some great cushions out there to spoil any home decor lover. These for example are from Micheal Murphy, they have a lavish, indulgent feel of gold paint splashed on velvet. Perfect for more modern interiors they come in a a range of colours including Ocher, Navy, Champagne and Raspberry.
For those who are looking for something unique, this set is the perfect gift ...made for any gin lover, the G&Tea Cocktail Set by Root 7 is made from iridescent Borosilicate glass with luxurious gold detailing that will ensure it takes center stage at your next cocktail party or a girls’ night in. Very close to the top of my list.
The true magic though is what’s inside.. the rainbow-hued teapot features a built-in filter basket, allowing you to infuse tea or a host of other flavors into your gin (or vodka, rum, tequila…), for the perfect cocktail. But it doesn’t stop there either Borosilicate glass withstands heat too so is perfect for a soothing hot toddy.
For anyone that loves interiors a magazine subscription is a great way to give a gift that keeps on giving all year. Ideal Home, Elle Decoration and 25 Beautiful Homes are a few of my favorites but there are plenty to chose from. You can buy 6 months or a year either way, if your love loves interiors they won't help but be excited about the prospect of swooning over all those gorgeous homes every month.
The design project by John Lewis is a series of original pieces for the contemporary home, each one progressive and beautifully designed. The vase, pictured above looks gorgeous in a range of settings, alone or with stems and would definitely please me this Valentines. Any decorative piece can make a great gift but try to ensure it is something the person has asked for. We base whole designs around our clients treasured pieces but if it's someone who really loves interiors they may have 'that spot' reserved for a special piece they are waiting for.
Of course, no Create Perfect gift list would be complete without a candle. Candles work on so many levels for interiors. As an interior designer I use them regularly in my clients home for aesthetic purposes. They can bring colour, shape (form) and feeling to a rooms decor... But at night, using a candle can add a great ambiance. Of course for entertaining on Valentines evening, there's nothing more romantic that the light of a candle.
We have mentioned a few other brands and beautiful candles in our Luxury Stocking and Christmas Gift Ideas blog posts. These would all be suitable but for this Valentines I couldn't not mention Johnson and White. Always being passionate for Fragrance and Travel, each collection is based on a luxury destination. I highly recommend the Dubai collection, a unique sophisticated scent inspired by Middle East. It reveals the exotic top notes of lychee, beautiful saffron, geranium, kevda and rose otto, exquisitely balanced with Jasmin, lily and amber. All this flows into a sensuous base of musk, orchid, rock rose and precious oudh. This potion screams pure indulgence... perfect for your Valentine.
Whether they are gracing the dining table or sitting on a drinks trolley, this set of 4 wine glasses from Audenza is a beautiful addition to the entertainers toolbox. With gorgeously hued berry tinted glass and a luxurious gold detail, they are sure to make your lovers favorite grape even more enjoyable. A lovely gifts which doesn't just tell them you love them... it helps them sparkle all evening.
Lastly something for the morning after, something cosy and beautiful, of sumptuous quality. Not overly bulky and very comfortable to move around in, these 100% cotton robes are unisex and come in a range of colours. A special treat for snugly evenings or lounging morning breakfasts.
What ever you get your loved ones and what ever you get in return we hope your day is filled with love and that your surrounded by lovely things :)
