Cue the chocolates, champers and cheesy cards – yep, it’s that time of year again, ladies. We’ve got the love buy and hope you’ve caught it too!
Whether you’re a sucker for all things pink, hearts, roses and the whole shebang, or you prefer something on the down low this Valentine’s, we’ve compiled a list of wants and needs you can shop for yourself (or send to your partner so he, or she has a clue what to get you!).
Lime Crime Lipsticks
We’re suckers for lipsticks, and what better than heavily pigmented, multi-coloured lipsticks with super cute packaging? Basically nothing. Remember to exfoliate your lips before you use these babies because they’re not dry lips-friendly!
Find it: Available online on LimeCrime.
Bando Super Chill Cooler Bag
You never have to get stuck with warm beers on the beach with this baby. This chiller bag looks way better than the ones you get in Daiso, and we reckon it will look wicked on Instagram as well. Double it up as a carry-on tote when you’re heading for your next beach vacay and then stash it with enough Singha Beer to get you in the right mood soaking up the rays on the beach.
Find it: Available online at Shopbando.com
Beats by Dr. Dre Mixr
If you need to drown out the sounds of the construction by your flat, or the endless chattering of your colleagues (that you love dearly!), these babies will keep you stylish. You can also write them off as a “work expense” if you’re planning to moonlight as a DJ. These babies have rotating ear cups swivel back behind the ears, and then rotate back for total isolation. We’re suckers for the pink ones, obviously.
Find it: Available here.
Le Creuset Petite Heart Cocotte
It’s no secret that our Acting Editor is obsessed with Le Creuset-everything. This Valentine’s, she’s planning to up her kitchen game with sweet treats fresh from the oven in these adorable Le Creuset Cocotte.
Find it: Available in multiple locations.
Atelier Swarovki by Victor & Rolf
In collaboration with dynamic designer duo Victor & Rolf, this Red Velvet Rock Atelier Swarovski collection boasts badass pieces that have been accented with red velvet and sparkling crystals. Move away from your comfort zone and try these highly covetable mixed material jewellery.
Find it: Available at all Swarovski stores.
Xiao Wang Jewellery
You know you’re all grown up when you’re moving on from Forever 21 knick knacks to coveting fine jewellery. We’re currently lusting after multiple pieces by New York-based Xiao Wang Jewelry. Rihanna has been seen recently rocking her pieces on the single cover of her latest song, FourFiveSeconds and on multiple red carpets. If Rihanna approves, we do too!
Find it: Available online.
