The Red of Love: Classy Valentine’s Gifts for the One You Love

Date: 05-Feb-2015 - Written by Debbie Davies

Hello, my Little Cupids! As I’m sure you’re aware Valentine’s Day is swiftly approaching and of course that means Valentine’s gifts. For many of us though choosing something special for that special someone can be a bit of a chore especially if you are trying to give a present with a Valentine’s Day feel. Great holiday it maybe but let’s be honest with ourselves here it produces a lot of rubbish in the gift department – tacky stuffed bears and heart-printed boxers, anyone?

Luckily for you guys though we have come up with six excellent gift options , two for the boys and two for the girls to keep it fair, which also just so happen to be in red leather to match that Valentine’s Day feel. Also since, we’re such big softies, we’ve even done it by budget so you can spoil your ‘Boo’ modestly or extravagantly depending on your wallet/purse size. So without further ado, enjoy! We hope you find something special!

Budget for Her:                                                                                                               Budget for Him:

Wombat - Ultra Soft Small Red Leather Purse - £19.99                                                                                               Giudi - Italian Leather Phone Holder Pouch - £11.00


If you’re having an inexpensive Valentine’s Day this year then these two great gifts are proof that low budget doesn’t mean low quality. The wombat purse comes in ultra-soft red leather making it a pleasure to touch. While this designer leather phone holder by Giudi, reduced to half-price from £22 shows you don’t have to spend the earth to get designer quality goods. 

Moderate for Her                                                                                                                 Moderate for Him


O Sno - Soft Leather iPad bag - iPad case – Red - £56.00                                                                                    Giudi - Luxury Italian Leather Wallet Style - £55.00

The ‘O Sno’ range of iPad cases are truly fantastic, made from soft leather they offer snug and durable protection for your tablet while making it look awesome at the same time. That doesn’t mean our luxury leather wallet, from Giudi again, is any slouch.  This well-made wallet comes with a monogrammed lining and is presentably in a lovely gift box, a gift that can be used for years to come.

Expensive for Her                                                                                                                          Expensive for Him


Chiarugi - Luxury Italian Leather Ladies Slim Briefcase - £270.00                                                                    Dimitri - Leather Luxury Gladstone Holdall Travel Bag -£250.00

If you really feel like splashing out this year and giving them a gift that can last a lifetime then you simply can’t go wrong with these two wonderful presents. Chiarugi red leather, ladies briefcase is simply stunning. Professional, beautiful and stylish it will turn heads in any office place. The Gladstone holdall is also incredible even in the picture you can see the gleam on the burgundy leather. It has classic style and is a gift any man will appreciate.
