Show Some Sparkle
We all know diamonds are a girl’s (and guy’s!) best friend, so you really can’t go wrong with a piece of jewellery, especially when it’s from brothers GUY&MAX Shepherd’s exceptional collection. This award-winning duo has earned acclaim for their super-fine and minimal diamond pieces featured in the renowned birdcage collection – inspired by the chassis of the iconic Maserati racing car. Not just one for the ladies, make your man’s heart flutter with a pair of 18ct gold paper aeroplane cufflinks, originally designed for Max’s best men (or wing men) on his wedding day.

Pull An All-Nighter
Extend Valentine’s Day by treating your significant other to a stay in London’s most unique hotel experience, ROOM – a striking sculpture, designed by Anthony Gormley, perched on the southern wing of The Beaumont, like a pixelated Buddha meditating over Mayfair. Initially approached through one of the hotel’s more traditional suites, ROOM is everything but your average hotel experience – try to imagine a 10-metre high asymmetric chamber encased in Black Forest Oak, with only a shaft of natural light entering through a small shutter. Oh, and the only furniture? Simply the most heavenly king-sized bed of your dreams.
Of course, if you prefer your bedrooms more orthodox, the hotel has numerous other beautifully appointed suites and rooms available, all fitted out in an effortlessly elegant art deco style.
