Spark(le) the romance with these Valentine’s Day gift ideas

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner which means that the season of luuurve is upon us. However, Valentine’s Day is no longer just about romantic relationships – it’s a time to celebrate your family, your bestie, or even your four-legged friends. It’s an occasion that can bring on a rush of emotions, excitement and often… expectations. 

Rather than let that special someone down, we recommend you get something that will last longer than flowers and chocolates. Wink-wink, (socially distanced) nudge-nudge, yes, we’re talking jewellery and watches. Whether it’s a luxury watch that’s saved for those once in a lifetime events or studs that can be worn more often than not, beautiful jewellery has a place in every wardrobe.  And yes, while lockdown lasts, working from home definitely counts as a special occasion – we’ll take any excuse to dazzle, even if it’s only on Zoom! 

Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls are a timeless classic – they positively glow with class and sophistication. Dress them up or down, they look equally luminous at a braai or a dinner party (remember those?). As the saying goes, pearls are always appropriate! The most popular types are Freshwater and Akoya, and they can be set on almost any piece you can imagine, from a necklace to rings, earrings, or bracelets

What Everyone Wants – More Time 

If you promised your loved one a gift of planetary proportions, and now you’ve realised that you may have overestimated your moon retrieval skills, we have just the gift for you. Giving someone a watch is like giving them the gift of time. On bidorbuy, you can find a wide array of both women’s and men’s watches, plus secondhand, new and refurbished styles. For the ladies, brands like Fossil or Daniel Wellington are popular choices, while for gentlemen, names such as Casio or Tissot will always be appreciated. 

A gift to never forget

A signet ring is the quintessential unforgettable present. Once worn only by men, these bands symbolised wealth and power. However, things have changed a lot over the years – modern signet rings are elegant, delicate and highly personal – and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. With details like engravings and gemstones, you can make them truly unique. Try designs with sapphires, rubies or emeralds for that extra sparkle. 

You can’t go wrong with a girl’s best friend

It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular times of the year to pop the question. If you’re ready to propose on February 14th, you’ll be looking for an engagement ring – and a “yes”! Find a ring that suits your partner’s personality, whether they’re into modern or vintage vibes.
