Are you struggling to find a gift this Valentines day with a difference? Need something a bit luxe, that still says “I didn’t leave this to February 13th”? Look no further – Couturing presents our favorite glamorous gifts with a very personal touch that…
DRINK Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial
Moët & Chandon has been the champagne of the glamorous since 1743 and now you can make Moët & Chandon your own. For a very limited time you can purchase the Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Valentine’s Gift Pack which includes a bottle of Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial and a phosphorescent pen which you can use to write a message straight onto the bottle.
Such a gorgeous idea and right now I am so in love with personalised gifts. Moët & Chandon Rosé is also a perfect champagne to gift for Valentines Day. A wonderful bouqet of red fruits such as wild strawberry, rasperry and cherry with floral nuances of rose and a slight peppery touch will have the one (or many) you give this to at your every call.
Not only that but Moët & Chandon have done something very clever with this “Graffiti Glamour” idea. Inspired by graffiti legend André who is critically and internationally acclaimed for his graffiti about love, you can tag your love on the bottle and online. With every bottle of Moët & Chandon Rosé you can go online here to where a world of seduction awaits. You can virtually tag the streets of Google Street View and add your own personal message of love onto any building in the world. So cute.
The perfect gift to say what you want to say in person. Suggestions include “I love you”, “Let’s fly to Paris” and (eep) “Will you marry me?” How romantic!
WEAR Valentine’s Havaianas
It goes without saying that Australian’s live a very beach culture and show me one person in this country who doesn’t have (or want) a pair of havaianas. They are the essential thong for every wardrobe. So if your sweetheart doesn’t have a pair, replace sending them flowers and send them some havaianas!
On February 14th, those who have pre-purchased a pair online here will get a cute pair featuring either the male or female designs, will have a pair effortlessly sent to someone of their choosing. The designs are trés chic featuring all sorts of little characters. They come in white with slim pink for girls and a grey and black design for men. And of course, a personalised message come enscribed on the box. For a cool $29.95, this is the easiest of Valentine’s Day gifts with a difference there is!
SHOP Melbourne’s GPO
So you want something a little bit more substantial than chocolates? How about some apparel from Manning Cartell, a cute dress from Gorman, a beautiful tie from Ben Sherman for the other half? MGPO has got you covered. With a huge range of amazing high-end retailers Couturing just cannot get enough of these guys and you know how much we love retailers with a difference – well get ready for this!
MGPO has set up the MGPO Love Mail station! On the 1st floor there will be quick little typists typing our your words of love onto a specially designed letterhead for you to give away to your hearts choosing. As the people from MGPO have said “sure, there’s none of that instant gratification that comes with email, but the pay off will be worth it.” – LOVE IT.
With another stunning visual display by Gloss Creative, the MGPO has also been so beautifully decorated by a visual display of letters flooding the walls in celebration of the history of the building (which used to be a post office for those of you who didn’t know!). You can visit the Typing Pool tomorrow to have a love letter written for you!
GIVE Fleur Flowers
If you want to go down the more traditional route, nothing is more Valentines day than a stunning bouquet. Fleur McHard, renowned event stylist and florist, who recently so generously sponsored the Couturing launch has set up her own florist, Fleur in Armadale. Known for her inspired simple elegance and unique floral designs, fleurs is the shopping destination to get your flowers delivered.
Also very cute is their current visual display in the windows. It reads ” a card – a cuddle, dinner – a kiss, flowers from Fleur – ….” Flowers with a personality!
