Important tip for men: Even if your wife or girlfriend says she doesn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day (which is tomorrow), get her something. She will be upset if you don’t, and will express her disappointment in a very quiet manner for a very long time. Another tip: It's never a bad idea to go all out, and that means emptying out your wallet for jewelry or an approximation of luxurious bling. Happy shopping.
FOR HER EARS
What does it say when you give her a pair of Bulgari Serpenti earrings that are in the shape of two awesome snakeheads? It says that you very much believe that she is the queen of your heart and that you also adhere to the adage: happy wife, happy life. Greenbelt 4.
FOR HER LIPS
Because you can’t bedazzle her puckers, give her a tube of Rouge G de Guerlain lipstick. Our sources (many women) say this creation by Guerlain and supermodel Natalia Vodianova is amazing. We say, aside from being a gift, it is also a late-night activity—offer to take it off after the date. guerlain.com
FOR HER NECK
Can’t get more romantic than these. The Louis Vuitton Color Blossom necklaces take the French house’s quatrefoil flowers, render them in sweet sorbet colors (pink mother-of-pearl, blue or green turquoise, malachite or lapis lazuli), and string them on fine chains. Greenbelt 4.
FOR HER WRIST
The iconic Love Bracelet by Cartier is updated with a more delicate form and many iterations (get one with diamonds), so it is the perfect time to symbolically and also physically seal your love again with a screwdriver. Greenbelt 4.
FOR HER FINGER
Because of its shape, a ring spells eternity. The Tiffany Infinity ring takes the symbolism up a notch by entwining the very emblem for forever on its loop. So this is eternity times forever and ever. We hope your love will last as long. Rustan’s Makati.
FOR HER FINGER (THE OTHER ONE)
If your lady is allergic to anything romantic, woo her with the Bulgari B.zero1 Design Legend ring. Dreamt up by the late great architect Zaha Hadid, the ring possesses a curvaceous and fluid movement—perfect for the woman who prefers unconventional things. Greenbelt 4.
FOR THE REST OF HER BODY
What can be more intimate than perfume, especially when it has been designed to mimic the supple skin of women? The Galop d'Hermès perfume combines the smell of soft-as-skin leather with the scent of the immortal rose. The effect is perpetual tension that is best deciphered up close. Greenbelt 3.
