Flowers, fashion and food: Three spectacular Valentine’s Day gifts


Moving on from start-of-the-year solutions, it is never too early to start planning for the day of love. Valentine’s day to be exact! Because while every day may be a day for love, the official, bank-breaking, proposal-invoking mother of all romantic events is Feb 14 and to honor just that (and make your life a little bit easier, I’m talking to you, smitten men!), we’ve curated a list of the best-of-the-best when it comes to romantic offerings.

Heart-shaped macaroon, Amorino

If you fancy yourself a Ken, then here’s your chance to take a cue from the mythical gentleman. The story doing the rounds is that Barbie and Ken officially broke up in 2004 after 43 years of bliss but the 50th anniversary of Ken in Paris last year seems to have rekindled their relationship, giving this Valentine’s Day a very special meaning. Enter The Real Flower Company! Ken confesses, “it had to be the ultimate bouquet. I can’t risk losing Barbie again.”
