Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and the pressure is on to find the right gift that's both romantic and thoughtful. Dinner, flowers and a card are a given, but a present is what will really raise the stakes. Whether you're on a hunt for a gift to seduce or simply to spoil her silly, here are our top 10 picks that are guaranteed to make the heart grow fonder.
1. Burberry Prorsum rucksack in technical nylon and leather
A functional gift like a lightweight waterproof backpack inspired by the Burberry trench coat fabric goes a long way. But one that can be personalised with initials hand embroidered using a traditional goldwork technique takes it up a notch.
2. LV & Me jewellery collection
The other alternative to personalised gifts is as easy as "ABC". Pick one from the LV & Me collection in gold finished brass featuring mini screws reminiscent of the maison's iconic trunks. Each geometric alphabet is available in necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
3. Fendi micro Baguette bag in nappa leather with fur, crystals and pearls
Red. Check. Pink. Check. Fluffy. Check. If you're looking to tick all the right boxes this Valentine's Day, the Fendi micro Baguette launched for the special occasion promises major brownie points.
4. Hanky Panky high-shine stretch lace soft-cup bra
It's sweet that men brave the lingerie section every Valentine's Day. But truth be told — guys don't often pick out the best intimates for their gals. Listen up: Comfort trumps seduction. May we suggest picking lingerie that's sexy, comfortable and practical. Yes, they do exist.
5. Bulgari Bulgari Cuore pink gold pendant with carnelian
In search for a fail proof gift? Bulgari's heart-shaped pendant is your best bet. Nothing makes the heart smile more than a classic jewellery piece symbolising your love.
6. Ocelot Raspberry & Vanila, 75% Dark Chocolate
Chocolates are an aphrodisiac and they equate to sensuality and sexuality. A high percentage of dark chocolate also means that it's a non-guilty indulgence packed with antioxidant goodness. Win-win.

If you don't already know, chocolates and candles go hand in hand. Our pick? Byredo's collector's edition to create that much needed sweet-smelling romantic atmosphere.
