Ted Kooser once said that Valentine’s Day is a poets holiday. I’d like to add to this sentiment by exclaiming that Valentine’s Day is also a shopaholics holiday. Sure, it can be cheesy and somewhat commercialised, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to show someone very special just how much you care (because nothing says I Love You quite like new season Valentino).

And so herein lies the GRAZIA guide to luxurious Valentine’s Day gifting ideas, accessories edition. This is a list of pieces to be treasured; fine jewels and forever bags sure to signify true love for generations to come. By all means bookmark, share with that person, email this link. Whatever you need to do to ensure one of the below winds up in your hot little hands this Valentine’s Day.

Chaumet Jeux de Liens ring, $POA. shop now

I’m a minimalist when it comes to jewellery. I’m far too lazy to concern myself with the finer details – literally – of what I wear, particularly in times such as these. But as I’ve slowly adjusted to a new routine that sees me working from home full-time, I’ve started to understand the mental connections I subconsciously make when I get dressed for the day. I’ve found that just like my AM beauty routine, putting on jewellery helps me feel more put together throughout the rest of my day. That being said, I’m hardly going to be stacking and layering accessories just to sit in my office, so an understated yet sophisticated ring like this one would work perfectly. The classic design also means that I’ll wear and love it forever, WFH or otherwise. – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Editor

Bottega Veneta The Shell Bag, $4270. shop now 

The way to my heart is through Bottega Veneta, specifically this brilliant tomato red bag. While I love the tactile nature of the brand’s iconic cloud clutch, there’s something about the unique structure of this design that feels special. From the soft suede insert to the firm peek-a-boo panelling, it’s durable enough for everyday but with a (very fiery) twist. Another soon-to-be cult carry-all from the fashion hero that is Daniel Lee.  – Emily Algar, Contributing Beauty Editor

Bulgari B.ZERO1 EARRINGS, $4420. shop now 

I wear gold hoops almost daily, so naturally my heart beats for this luxurious pairing from Bulgari. As part of the B.Zero1 collection, the double setting puts a nice spin on classic styles, without feeling too much for everyday. The subtle Bulgari branding appeals to my inner magpie as well (read. I love shiny, pretty, showy things). – Emily Algar, Contributing Beauty Editor

Hermes lipstick case with mirror, $735. shop now 

While I’d love nothing more than a Birkin from my significant other, I’d still happily settle for this intricate and artful lipstick case from the creative powerhouse that is Hermes. Moulded from a piece of buttery tan leather, the teeny tiny keepsake includes a mirror and just enough room for a Rouge Hermes lipstick, preferably in a true red. A date night staple, for sure. – Emily Algar, Contributing Beauty Editor

Christian Louboutin Epic Rose Stilettos, $1995. shop now

Nothing screams glamour like a sky-high, patent black stiletto – even more so when extracted from the creative genius of a man that has glamour in his veins: Christian Louboutin. From the slick red sole to the precariously skinny steel heel, this is not a heel for the faint of heart. This is not takeout on the couch date night attire; this is a serious stiletto made for dance floors and dimly-lit bars. They might not be shoes for right now, but until a time where days floors are commonplace, I’m more than happy to give them some prized real estate in my wardrobe.  – Emily Algar, Contributing Beauty Editor

Bulgari Serpenti Viper Bracelet, $34,000. shop now

You’d be hard pressed to find a woman who shies away from diamonds on Valentine’s Day, me included. One could opt for simple studs or a classic tennis bracelet, but the Bulgari Serpenti Viper bracelet is too glamorous to pass up. With its distinctive shape and unique scale, the 18 kt yellow gold and pavé diamond piece coils around the wrist like the house spirit animal; subtle but also wildly sophisticated.  – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Burberry Small Quilted Lambskin Lola Bag, $2490. shop now 

If I was forced to forsake all sartorial accoutrements in lieu of just one category, I would always choose handbags. I’ve been infatuated with them since the ‘It Bag’ era of the mid ‘00s, which saw designer wares rise rapidly to cult status before fading into relative obscurity. I bought into the hype every time, desperate to get my hands on the same arm candy as all the stylish stars of the time. Thankfully, my approach has changed over the years and I’m now more concerned with designs that transcend trends, can be loved and worn forever and isn’t being worn by everyone else. I’m also less partial to a giant logo these days, making this Burberry flap bag an extremely attractive option due to its discretion. The size is super practical too, meaning I can carry it for any occasion. – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Editor

Dinosaur Designs Resin Flower Earrings in Melon Swirl, $160. shop now 

What I love about these is that no two pairs are the same. Dinosaur Designs hand-make all their pieces in Australia, and because of the individual characteristics of the resin material, each duo will have individual quirks. The melon shade is decidedly festive, and the fluid form feels romantic and playful. Like tiny blooms for your ears (only with a much longer shelf life). – Marisa Patrarca, Beauty Editor, USA 

Jaeger-Lecoultre RENDEZ-VOUS NIGHT & DAY MEDIUM timepiece, $36000. shop now 

A luxurious timepiece feels indulgent, but isn’t that just the thing about love? Jaeger-Lecoultre is certainly the benchmark, so I’m hoping (praying) for the Rendez-Vous Night & Day Medium Timepiece come February 14. Embellished with a circular diamond setting, radiant rose gold face and black leather strap, it’s sumptuous but classic, and sure to mark the love and lust of generations to come. And if nothing else, my significant other will surely enjoy putting a stylish stop to my perennial tardiness… a girl can only dream, right? – Emily Algar, Contributing Beauty Editor

SMALL VALENTINO GARAVANI 03 ROSE EDITION ATELIER HOBO BAG, $4740. shop now 

Forget a dozen long stem red roses this Valentine’s Day. Instead, I’m coveting this intricate Valentino Garavani 03 Rose Edition Atelier nappa hobo bag. Handmade in Italy, the design features endless 3D leather petals, all fashioned together to create a piece that’s part bag, part artwork. The rich berry-red hue is incredibly romantic, and the magnetic closure means it’s still somewhat practical for every day. My love is like a red red rose, only this time around, I’d like the Valentino variety. – Marisa Patrarca, Beauty Editor, USA
