Flowers, chocolates or even just a card (never forget the card!) are always welcome, but to make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one, you’ll need to pull out all the stops. Fortunately, we’re here to help. Our 2024 Valentine’s Day gift guide not only includes the usual glitzy jewelry, indulgent skincare and head-turning fragrances but also gifts that encourage quality time together – after all, what could be more romantic than that?

Donning a fitting rose-red hue for the occasion, the limited-edition watch features an ultra-thin mother-of-pearl dial with gradient numerals, all framed by a bezel adorned with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds. While dainty and suitably romantic, a stainless-steel case ensures wearability. In-keeping with the brand’s exclusive nature, just 50 editions are available worldwide.
Marrow Fine, Sapphire Rose Cut and Opal Linear Band
A ring on Valentine’s Day can come with certain connotations, but this cute little Marrow Fine stacker is distinctive enough to not be confused with any sort of proposal (unless accompanied by those four all-important words!). Crafted from 14K yellow gold, the dainty one-of-a-kind ring is adorned with a hypnotizing pear-shaped opal and a delicate white diamond. Completing the piece (and delivering on the Valentine’s-appropriate color scheme) is the central pink sapphire.
Lylie, Auxo Tennis Bracelet
A tennis bracelet is a staple in any jewelry box worth its salt, but there does come a time when even a classic as timeless as this should welcome an upgrade. British jewelry brand Lylie offers its modern take, featuring a more embellished design than original with clusters of sparkling diamonds totaling 4.9 carats. As standard, Lylie pieces are handmade in 9k salvaged gold using recycled metal from its gold exchange (or from old jewelry that you’d like to remodel), but you can upgrade to 14k or 18k, if you please.
