Valentine’s Day is here and it’s confusing us again. While Christmas and birthdays are easy to buy for, it feels as though there is a list of unspoken rules for Valentine’s Day gifts. Is it the done thing to get someone an actual present or is a box of chocolates enough? Should there be flowers too? Now that most of the world is unable to take their loved one out for a meal or a romantic getaway, Valentine’s Day takes on a new life and therefore all previous rules, unspoken or not, are void.
Whether you’re lucky enough to be with your loved one or if you’re apart for the big day, your Valentine’s Day gift needs to be extra special this year because most go-to Valentine’s Day activities are off the cards. With some help from Highsnobiety’s romantic curators, though, copping the perfect COVID-era Valentine’s Day gift for her won’t be as hard as you might think.

Burberry Micro Love Motif Towelling Lola Bag
