Flowers, books, and jewellery might be your first thought when buying a gift for that special someone in your life. Whether it’s your partner, sister or mum, there are a few go-to presents that you can count on getting a good reaction every time.
But if you don’t fancy playing it safe, what are your options?
If they’re sporty, getting them a taster session at a fun exercise class is a quirky gift (circus skills, anyone?).
For giftees that are always run off their feet, a spa day or relaxing afternoon tea is sure to go down well, and you join in the pampering too!
Want to get something that they’ll be able to use for years to come, but that’s still indulgent?
A pair of designer sunglasses is the perfect pick.
Here are some suggestions to please your discerning loved one.
Chic and standout, these shades from Chloe will add a touch of luxury to shopping dates and lunches.
Fans of the brand will not be disappointed — they’re soaked in character while maintaining a refined aesthetic.
The oversized, round lenses lend these sunnies a vintage charm, while gold cutout temples really bring the drama.
