When it comes to choosing a Valentine’s Day gift for your partner, it can be tempting to opt for a more standard option or tried and true staple: a pretty box of chocolate truffles, a bouquet of roses or some nice jewellery. And while these are all perfectly adequate options, they run the risk of not being special, unique or personalized to the recipient.

And the best part? LuxOnlinePh regularly updates their offerings with fresh drops, so you can still shop with them long after Valentine’s Day is over.
Read on for our gift guide to finding the perfect present for your partner.
For the devoted fashionista
They’ve watched every single season of Project Runway, consider Vogue as their life manual and already have a closet filled with luxury pieces from all manner of top-of-the-line designers. And when it comes to fashion, they’re all about classic and iconic statement pieces. For an elegant and timeless gift that your significant other is sure to treasure for years to come, consider the Kelly bag in a versatile black shade or the Birkin bag in an eye-catching green hue. Both crafted by Hermès, these are two of the rarest and most coveted handbags in the world, and are made from top-quality leather with silver hardware accents.
For the exercise junkie
They start their day bright and early with a pre-sunrise yoga session, and evenings aren’t complete without some circuit training or a jog around their neighbourhood. And if time permits, they’ll even squeeze in a quick F45 training session or some HIIT during lunch. If your significant other loves working up a sweat almost as much as they love you, they’ll need a giant bag to carry around their exercise gear. For something that’s equal parts practical and fashionable, opt for a large tote bag or backpack that will fit all their essentials and more. We suggest this red Marc Jacobs backpack; spacious Kenzo tote bag in baby pink; or chic Burberry carry-all.
For the high-flying drama queen
In her humble opinion, she would have definitely stolen the show had she been cast on The Bling Empire. If your partner is a high-flying glamazon with a flair for the dramatic, then chances are that when it comes to fashion, more is more: more sparkles, more colour, more patterns; more everything. Gift her with a gorgeous two-toned Louis Vuitton carrier that is sure to draw eyes with its bold red color panel. Alternatively, you can opt for a pair of embellished high heels from Jimmy Choo in a show-stopping shade of pink or studded Christian Louboutin heels. Regardless of your pick, she’ll command everyone’s attention once she steps into the room with these on.
For the pavement pounder
Whether they’re attending a power lunch in the city between meetings, squeezing in an appointment at the salon or running a gazillion errands before the day is over, your partner seems to be constantly on the go, moving from one place to the next in rapid fashion. For a thoughtful gift that’ll help cushion their feet in style, you can’t go wrong with a pair of comfortable trainers from a luxury fashion house. LuxOnlinePh’s footwear catalogue includes a sizeable collection of designer sneakers from the likes of Christian Dior, Valentino and Louis Vuitton, so that they’ll be able to take to the streets in comfort – and look good while doing so.
For the low-key minimalist
When it comes to apparel, they prefer to keep things simple and gravitate towards Scandinavian-chic staples or black-and-white utilitarian basics. Monochrome outfits are their choice of style, complemented by simple accessories that won’t draw too much unwanted attention. Items they may currently have in their closet include Alexander Wang tees; black skinny jeans or fitted trousers; and, for the ladies, plenty of little back dresses that suit every occasion. Gift them with this vintage Chanel bag; black and navy blue quilted shoulder bag from Kate Spade; or, for the gentlemen in particular, a simple yet stunning black pouch from Saint Laurent.
