Whether you love it or not, we're real girly girls at FBC HQ, so can't help but get a little bit fuzzy and giddy come early February; the prospect of a dinner date, romantic candle-lit anything, surprise bouquets and shiny things all have our hearts a flutter. But we're only too aware that Valentine's Day is never an easy one to shop for - while roses and choccies are always nice, they're a tad predictable and perhaps too much of a cliche. With this in mind, we thought we'd share what it is we're loving - from our beautiful collection and from further afield - as a gift-list of inspiration (ok, and maybe also a sledge hammer of a hint to our loved ones!).
Whether you’re single or spoken for, here are some gift options for everyone in your life, from your bestie to your beau…
The Girls of the FBC would love...
"I’m currently obsessed with the White Plumage Lamp: I love the way the graceful and gentle feathers sit against the shiny gold base – the perfect blend of texture and colour."
"Unveiling itself Valentine’s day: Tom Ford Private Blend Oud Wood parfum. Made with rose, amber, sandalwood, tonka bean and oud wood (one of the most precious ingredients in a perfumer’s arsenal) it’s the most incredible fragrance in the world."
Jess, Social Media Bunny
"There's such an ethereal quality to all of Luke's photographs - I could stare at them forever. Re-birth has a particularly romantic quality - the roses, the wing like accessories and the sunbeams and all just beautiful! Plus I've picked the perfect spot at home for this canvas."
"I really love a personlised present, as it shows real thought and sentiment - which, for me, is the most important thing with any gift; I have 3 boys, so these initial, stacking rings in various metals would be opened with joy on Sunday."
Milene, In-House Parisian & Digital Marketing Guru
"I’m huge fan of our Versailles Collection - each item is just pure piece of art! But my all time favourite is the Versailles Baby Gold Chair. This Gold & Silk French chair is so elegant and feminine but not too girly at the same time. It will sit beautifully in my bedroom next to my long glass mirror."
"A beautiful leather jacket from the French fashion label ‘Zadig & Voltaire’. This is my go-to brand for luxury street style. They offer every day clothes but with a rock’n’roll edge."
