So it’s February. Love is in the air, and so is extreme stress. Choosing gifts for Valentine’s Day can challenge even the most Romeo-and-Juliet-like of couples. And when your partner is a savvy fashionista with particular tastes, there can be even more pressure to get it right. You don’t need us to tell you that scavenging around the Valentine’s sections at big department stores isn’t going to get you far. Well, unless you’re specifically looking for an oversized teddy bear with the words “I love you beary much” on it.
So what should you get them? Here’s a little tip: if you want to really impress your stylish partner this year, let them know that you acknowledge and admire the way they dress. Trust us, when you’ve got a partner who loves fashion, the next best thing you can say after “I love You” is “I love your style”. To help you express both these things, we’ve compiled a list of stylish items any fashionable girl or guy would swoon over. But feel free to also get the oversized teddy bear, if that’s what your heart – or partner’s heart – desires.

Here’s one for your working man. He’ll carry around all his business essentials with the reminder that his beloved (that’s you) is supporting him throughout the day.
Give him a splash of pink (the colour of romance, of course) with this pair of Timo trunks inspired by Boracay, a popular beach holiday destination for lovers and honeymooners. Who knows? It might inspire him to check out some flights.
Show your love for him and his wardrobe with this chic and adorable shirt that works for both the office and the bar. You’ll both be wearing your hearts on your sleeves with this gift.
Nevermind the bunch of flowers – hand him several rose bouquets on a silk tie instead. They’ll last forever too. Surely that’s a good sign?
Everyone already knows that real men wear pink. For Valentine’s Day, it’s an actual necessity. This tee is also available in Saint Laurent‘s women’s collection, so it’s a perfect opportunity to go double pink in style.
Pinned to his suit jacket, shirt, wallet, or bag, your two hearts will be beautifully shown off everywhere he goes. Subtle, simple, and stylish.
Nothing can go wrong with the classic formula of jewellery for Valentine’s Day. This beautiful plain gold heart bracelet is a sure way to please even the most fickle of fashionistas.
Whether she’s into elegant dinner parties or wild nights out (or both), any girl would be finding her new favourite accessory (and man, of course) with this gorgeous cross-shoulder bag. Decked out with vibrant gems, this is a sure way to make her feel like the most precious gem of all.
If your girl also happens to be the most stylish city dweller in your life, you’d be striking G with these Gucci sneakers with the signature interlocking G on one side and a brightly coloured heart on the other. It’s fashion and romance in perfect harmony.
It’s always a bit risky to give a girl lingerie for Valentine’s Day, or any occasion really. Without being too suggestive, this pretty kimono robe that has the perfect touch of romance will do the trick. She’ll love that it makes her feel both cosy and sexy all at the same time.
With what is arguably the most desirable of all Valentine’s Day collections, Roger Vivier provides the perfect gift for any fashionista on the day of love and all things heart-shaped. She’ll be head-over-high-heels and top-to-pointed-toe in love with these and the person who gifted them.
P.S. And, of course, if your partner isn’t exactly as fashionable as you’d hope, this list can help with that too. Happy Valentine’s!
