From white horses to chocolate Eiffel Towers, we’ve rounded up some of the most extravagant gifts imaginable for this Valentine’s Day. While some may be crazier than others, it would be altogether impossible for your loved one to not adore something on this list.
Share with us in the comments below, what are you buying for your special someone this year?
We all know diamonds are forever, but these Fabergé earrings (price on request, faberge.com) from the Les Palais collection are inspired by the grandeur of Versailles. It doesn't get more grand than that.
Few things are as personal as perfume. Le Labo combines incredible essences, making it the perfume brand to buy this Valentine’s Day. Our personal favorite, Neroli 36 ($145, lelabofragrances.com), blends jasmine, vanilla, mandarin, roses, and musk creating a smell that’s both fresh and seductive.
Romance can’t be all white horses and princes, but it should be. Although a white stallion might seem Disneyesque, this fantasy remains timeless because it’s just that great. So on this Valentine’s Day get on that white horse and make a fantasy a reality. Lady Rhoswyn ($6,500, passingfancyhorses.com) a seven year old Warmblood/Appaloosa mare is looking for a great home, and who can resist that face?
The Remède Spa at the St. Regis Aspen, an oasis of serenity tucked in the mountains, has collaborated with Veuve Clicquot on three custom experiences available February 15-18, March 8-10, and March 22-24. Our favorite offering is the Rosé and Roses Couples Massage and Private Bath ($500, stregisaspen.com), which includes a 60-minute massage and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé Brut to be enjoyed in a rose petal bath.
While many joke that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday, we recommend a card with a little more tender, love, and care. Mrs. John L. Strong’s handcrafted stationary offers only the finest quality cards. As for the Valentine’s Day card, well the words “I only have eyes for you” are engraved into the paper on our favorite option ($20, mrsstrong.com).
La Perla makes plenty of lingerie sets in an array of colors and designs, but we thought it proper to show off this red favorite, the Kyoto Hana ($363, laperla.com). This gift can be for her or for him (wink, wink).
So lingerie might be a tad too scandalous to give your girl this Valentine’s Day, but what about some fancy PJs? Sophia Graydon is known for her chic sleeping attire, and sometimes sexy doesn’t mean showing off skin, it just means feeling comfortable. This silk pajama shirt, pants, and robe ($2,445, sophiagraydon.com) would make any girl swoon.
With a 12-inch chocolate Eiffel Tower and a high heel chocolate shoe stuffed with bonbons, Sugar and Plumm's Valentine's Day Extravagance package ($250, sugarandplumm.com) is both fun and sweet. For gift giving procrastinators who live in Manhattan, this chocolatier is offering same day delivery in Manhattan for those spending over $100.
When it comes to knowing about love, we have to give props to the French. A two night romantic getaway package at the lavish Le Moulin de l'Abbaye in Brantôme includes champagne cocktails upon arrival, a tour by boat on the Dronne river, a candlelit dinner at their gourmet restaurant, and a charming view of the village. Two nights at this boutique hotel ($946.29, moulinabbaye.com) is one amorous gift.
There is one teddy bear that stands out both in size and price this Valentine's Day. With a 5.90 carat diamond ring, the Vermont Teddy Bear Company Big Hunka Love Diamond Bear ($29,999, vermontteddybear.com) is one expensive and cuddly gift.
