The Ultimate Gift Guide For Him and Her This Valentine’s Day 2020
You've got a dinner reservation at a romantic restaurant and a beautiful bouquet ready for collection on Valentine's Day—but what about the gift? If you are still racking your brains over the perfect present that will blow your date away, here are some gift ideas for him and her that are sure to impress.
For Him and Her
1/11 Henry Jacques Les Toupies III: Fanfan and Galileo
Dynamic alone but even better when worn together, Fanfan and Galileo are the final perfumes that complete French Haute Parfumerie Henry Jacques’ limited-edition Les Toupies collection. For him, Galileo is masculine yet tender, with top notes of lavender, Italian mandarin and geranium; a heart of patchouli, myrrh and benzoin; and drying down to luxurious notes of oakmoss, tobacco, and amber.
For her, Fanfan is the picture of grace—mirroring the Galileo with top notes of lavender and Egyptian geranium and a touch of saffron; Indian sandalwood and rose damascene at its heart; and a base of cedarwood, leather and amber. Poured into handcrafted crystal bottles shaped like spinning tops, this pair of fragrances tell a playful and harmonious story of romance.
2/11 Dior Prestige Le Micro-Caviar De Rose
Here’s something that’s better than a bouquet of roses: harnessing the benefits of Rose de Granville—the first rose ever created for cosmetics at Dior, the new Le Micro-Caviar De Rose encapsulates the flower’s 22 precious micro-nutrients in the form of 17,000 caviar pearls. Infused with rose oil, rosehip, and manganese extracted from the rose, the indulgent treatment is rich in potassium, omegas-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids and antioxidants to reverse skin fatigue and restore energy to the cellular metabolism. Your partner will thank you for her renewed glow.
3/11 Chanel Fine Jewellery Extrait de Camelia transformable ring
Featuring the camellia—a delicate flower that has become synonymous with the house of Chanel, Extrait de Camelia’s latest additions to the fine jewellery collection includes this stunner, crafted in pink gold and adorned with diamonds. The ring can be transformed to be worn across two fingers or one, making it even more special.

4/11 Dyson Airwrap
Here’s a gadget all beauty junkies will love—the much-hyped Dyson Airwrap hair styler was even sold out at one point! Highly raved for its ability to effortlessly (and also automatically) curl hair without exposing it to extreme heat, it’s the answer to managing bad hair days or looking good for special occasions—like her Valentine’s date with you.
5/11 Bvlgari Serpenti Forever bag
Available until the end of February, Bvlgari’s iconic Serpenti Forever bag gets a romantic makeover for Valentine’s Day. Crafted from calf leather in carmine jasper, the bag features a unique heart-shaped charm in pink, coiled by a golden snake—an adorable reminder of your love for her.

6/11 Sustain Your Love at Six Senses Maxwell
There’s no better way to celebrate your love than spending some quality time together. But if jetting off isn’t an option, a staycation complete with a romantic dinner and spa should suffice. On February 14 or 15, Six Senses offers a one-night Sustain Your Love package with a special welcome drink and dinner for two at the Six Senses Brasserie. The escapade also features sustainability workshops and a couple yoga class. End the weekend with a pampering Find Your Perfect Match retreat at the Spa Pods, where you can indulge in a customised spa treatment together.
7/11 Leica Sofort
Whether your other half is a shutterbug or not, the Leica Sofort—now available in red—is a fun way to capture precious moments between you two. Lightweight and functional, the versatile instant camera features a variety of shooting modes, including macro, party and people, sport and action, as well as self-timer and selfie for when you don’t have an extra pair of hands. It doesn’t hurt that this camera packs plenty of style, with colourful cases and straps to match.
8/11 Saint Laurent Cit-E backpack
Tech-lovers will appreciate this smart wearable from Saint Laurent and Jacquard by Google. Appearing as a sleek, black backpack, the magic is woven into the Cit-E’s left strap, which connects to a smartphone and responds to touch gestures to activate its many functions—take photos with the phone camera, control music, drop location pins, and access Google Assistant. The backpack was made available in Singapore last month, the first country in Asia where it is available.

9/11 Hublot Big Bang Integral
Marking the 15th anniversary of the Big Bang, the Big Bang Integral will be the first iteration featuring a tailored, integrated metal bracelet. A redesigned case takes cues from the existing Big Bang 42mm model, but with indices replacing the Arabic numerals. The watch is available in lightweight titanium and Hublot’s exclusive King Gold, but for something extra special for the man in your life, opt for the limited edition all-black ceramic model, with only 500 pieces available.
10/11 Rimowa Essential
Is your partner a frequent traveller? Treat him to a sturdy suitcase that will remind him of you everywhere he goes. For Valentine’s Day, Rimowa introduces the Essential in Glacier—a crisp icy blue for Him. Available in Cabin, Check-In L and Trunk Plus sizes, you can also add a personal touch with Rimowa’s charms and accessories. Jetting off together? Couple up with the Rimowa Essential in Berry, a deep purple.
