While money can’t buy you happiness, it sure can buy you some swanky things. And if you’ve got the cash, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to splurge. Sure, a stuffed animal or a box of chocolates might do the trick, but why not kick it up a notch this year? After all, the sole of her new Christian Louboutins might just be the only red-coloured thing she needs in her life this year.
Here are our picks for some splurge-worthy gifts to spoil your significant other with this Valentine’s Day.
Nothing says a Valentine’s Day kiss like the perfect crimson pout. So be sure to get your loved one a creamy wear lipstick that’s bold, but moisturizing enough to last throughout your romantic dinner for two. Go for Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick.
Stop and smell more than just the roses this Valentine’s Day with a signature scent. Whether it’s cologne for your bae or perfume for your sweetie, a fragrance is a great gift idea to splurge on because some people feel it’s too extravagant to drop $100 on a scent for themselves and won’t. But if love isn’t worth indulging for, then what is?
Now, of course, we don’t mean that ring, but a quality ring can actually be a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day. It’s wise to splurge on rings because women who do wear rings tend to wear them all the time. We suggest a combination of PANDORA’s selection of rings.
Watches are classic gifts for a reason; they’re practical, beautiful and will make your partner think of you everytime he or she looks down at it. This makes it worth the expensive price tag. Check out our choices for both him and her.
We’ll pass on the flowers this year, but feel free to pass the sparkling rosé! Skip the discounted bubbly the LCBO puts on special each Valentine’s Day and treat you and your bae to a crisp bottle of Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne. It’s okay to splurge every once and a while!
If you and your significant other are big on hand-holding, why not send your love straight to the source? Spend a little extra dough on a luxurious hand cream for your partner and you’ll both feel the benefits. Go for the Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm from Nordstrom.
A luxury handbag is more than just an expensive purse – consider it an investment. Luxury handbags appreciate in value overtime and although its initial four or five figures may seem like an outrageous price to pay, a quality handbag will last your significant other a lifetime. Plus what girl doesn’t want a Saint Laurent bag?
A Weekend Getaway

Today Maurits and I received the award for #couplegoals from @revolve, which is a pretty crazy award to receive but I can't be more proud. First of all, we've been together for 11 years. 7 years before I decided to start blogging. Those were already the best years.. but it all became surreal when we were able to travel to so many beautiful places together. At the same time we both worked our butts off handling our social pages, projects, the office, and of course our baby Gisou. What I'm most proud of is the fact that we've been able to balance our work-life relationship and when we walk outside people think we're on our second date. And then 6 months ago we got our baby @moseymirsalehi who has daddy's eyes and mommy's hair. Thank you @revolve for this beautiful award and a big thank you to all of you for voting. ? Ps. I'm so excited for tomorrow's #revolveawards. ?
Because what is more luxurious than taking time off work and cuddling fireside in a cabin? Or snorkelling in the ocean? Or roaming cobblestone together? Or drinking pina coladas by the pool? Very little. So pack the car or get on a plane, and surprise your bae with an extended weekend getaway this Valentine’s Day.
