Single, in a relationship, it’s complicated? No matter what your love life status is at the moment, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it’s time to shower yourself (hello, self-care) and others with some love, and well, gifts. Stumped on what to gift your S.O. or looking to splurge on something for yourself? We’ve got you covered.
For the Beauty Lover
You’re in luck if your gal or guy is a fan of the fragrance, makeup or skincare as the District is full of options. A perfect duo for a beauty gal is the Bond No9 Nolita set. The perfume-lipstick duo features magenta and red kisses all over the bottle, the fragrance is a pairing classic freesia with a burst of tangerine. Other notes include lilies, rose, jasmine and other scents that will please the senses. The lipstick, (vegan and gluten-free) is a bold, vibrant and chic timeless red. For the gents, Creed’s Viking is a fiery fragrance for men, or splurge on your sweetheart and gift with a massage at Emena Spa.
For the well-dressed gentleman
A visit to Duncan Quinn for a Bespoke Suit is the perfect gift for a man that has it all. A custom suit from the Design District newcomer along with a shave or a trim from their master barber, a legend of 27 years expertise from New York.
For the Sneaker lover
The sneaker craze is here to stay and while styles are ever changing, everyone loves a pair of stylish kicks. Looking for the big, clunky “dad sneaker” then try Balenciaga’s Triple S Trainer (available in mens and womens). However, if you’re shopping for someone who keeps things more streamlined, then check out Koio’s low and high tops. Another new resident in the Design District, Koio offers Italian sneakers crafted in the Marche region of Italy. And for the true collector, Flight Club will have vintage favorites from Jordans to Yeezys.
For the jewelry junkie
Nothing says I love you like an arm party, so stack up her wrist with Louis Vuitton’s Daily Monogram Bracelet. Available in multiple color options and featuring the brand’s iconic flower detail in gold- or silver-tone metal on lacquer, gift one or gift ‘em all.
For the littles
Show your little ones some love and gift them toys that don’t require technology. The Max Push Car from Genius Jones will help them start to master balance and biking or opt for an old school wooden letter block set so they won’t have to rely on autocorrect.
For the athlete
If your S.O. is a cyclist or aspiring one, head to Rapha Racing to pick up the most stylish gear for on and off the road. From jerseys to racing bibs for both men and women, Rapha will help your ride look better; it’s up to you to put in the work. They also organize rides for passionate cyclists around the world.
For the Traveler
Gone are the days when people get dressed up for the airport, but for the jet setter love in your life, who is always pulled together for takeoff, a new set of luggage is the ultimate gift. Whether you gift the Rimowa original aluminum or polycarbonate bags you’ve got Valentine’s Day in the bag.
