In a fast-paced city like Hong Kong not everyone has the time to wander round the shops looking for the perfect Valentine’s gift. And with the most romantic day of the year just around the corner, time is running out for those who have left buying a gift to the last minute.
Luckily for you, we have compiled a list of Valentine’s gifts for that special someone.
Everyone loves cake! Ms B’s Cakery offers a selection of delicious and romantic cakes such as the Amoure, a chequered chocolate and strawberry butter cake laced with strawberry puree and light butter cream, and topped with a giant red rose and 20 small sugar flowers. If that is a bit too sweet for you, try the Lovebird Lilac, with lavender taro chiffon layers and a hint of coconut cream with glazed young coconut.
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a piece of jewellery, and Larry Jewelry has plenty of exquisite gems to choose from. The company’s Precious Heart collection features diamond heart-shaped rings, and some come with a sapphire, emerald and ruby. The heart-shaped gemstones are set with round, pear-shaped or marquise diamonds. The Luminous Stars collection has two-way pendants featuring shimmering diamonds with 18-carat rose gold or white gold. The pendants can be worn as a mini flower bud or a sparkling star.
Burberry has released a combined blush and highlighter palette. First Love is inspired by playful prints and fabrics from their womenswear collections. The box has a heart-print design and the palette is infused with illuminating pearls to add subtle highlights to cheeks.
Bally, the luxury fashion brand, was reportedly founded because of a husband’s simple gesture of love towards his wife. And with this in mind, the brand has unveiled its Valentine’s Day gift collection, including a simple and elegant grained calf leather Boom bag, a black grained leather Larsh cardholder and Avro and Avelle sneakers made from lightweight neoprene wrapped in leather perforated with the “B” symbol.
Watchmaker Omega is aiming to be a matchmaker this Valentine’s Day with its Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar 41 mm. The watch is ideal for the man in your life. It has a stainless steel case and hard metal (tungsten carbide) bezel, and each of its facets includes a month of the year.
Luggage maker Rimowa has the perfect gift for a loved one who travels a lot — the Rimowa Salsa Air in Guards Red. The multiwheel suitcase comes in intense red, and its light weight makes it perfect for those who are always rushing to catch a flight.
