Valentine’s Day is a staple in the romantic calendar and this year is no different. It’s a great excuse to show your loved ones what they mean to you and we all have different ways of doing that. For a lot of us, a single rose or a box of chocs will do the job just fine – maybe a posh dinner out if we’re feeling extravagant. It’s the little things that matter the most; breakfast in bed, a romantic note in your partner’s bag or pocket, but sometimes people feel like doing something not so little.
For the lucky few whose pockets are as deep as their love, here are some special Valentine’s Day gift ideas we came across with some very special price tags!
1. Spectacular sunglasses
So that your significant other isn’t dazzled by your generosity, you could present them with a pair of £300,000 sunglasses, as produced by Chopard and De Rigo Vision. They come complete with 60 grams of 24k gold on the arms. As if that wasn’t enough they’re embedded with 51 river diamonds; a sure way to cause a splash by the pool.
2. Put some ice on that wrist
Diamond studded sunglasses; check. All you need now is a wristwatch to match. If you’re looking for the biggest and brightest, we found more Swiss luxury in an unusual timepiece with 874 diamonds, in a variety of rare colours and shapes. This will give off a shine that even the new sunglasses might struggle to block. With a £17.5 million price tag, this is a very special gift.
3. Somewhere to lay your head
It’s not all about physical objects. Spending your money on experiences is a great way to create unforgettable memories with your loved ones. Your significant other is going to want somewhere to flaunt their brand new watch and sunglasses. How about a romantic getaway to the Penthouse Apartment at the Hotel Georges V in Paris? With the perfect, uninterrupted view of the Eiffel Tower and your own marble infinity bathtub, you can spend your Valentine’s Day in complete luxury for the cost of just £20,000 a night.
There are some incredible things out there that come at some incredible prices, but what’s important to remember is that it’s the thought that counts!
