Valentines Day is fast approaching and it’s up to the lovers of the world to once again demonstrate some thoughtful – and hopefully classy – gifting choices for their significant other.
Here at Dapper Chapper we have brought you the crème de la crème of choices to make eyes sparkle and hearts flutter. Take a peek and get some inspiration from our carefully curated collection below.
All the gifts can be purchased inside the beautiful Royal Exchange
by Bank station.
Paul A Young Chocolate Selection
As the only true artisan chocolatier in London, each of the chocolates are made purely by hand in the kitchens using fresh, expert ingredients. The flavour combinations they explore are experimental, ideal for something a little out of the ordinary. Pick up one of the small batch creations for a decadent Valentine’s treat. Various prices.
‘Be’ Boodles Diamond Pendant
A timeless piece from the ‘Be’ Boodles collection, this rose gold pendant set with round-brilliant cut diamonds. The pendant sits on a long rose gold chain with a complimentary secondary charm suspended a little above. The distinctive shape is an ideal gift for your loved one, at £6,850.
Lulu Guinness Tricolour Grainy Leather Mini Gertie
The Mini Gertie packs a big punch, taking all the beauty of the original and compacting it’s form into a bag that goes from day to night. Beautiful black and porcelain leather is offset with the classic red lips icon outlined on the front. The adjustable leather strap allows it to be worn long across the body or even as a clutch, the ideal multi-tasker at £245.
The Royal Exchange has teamed up with Lulu Guinness to bring a splash of chic style to the Grand Café and Threadneedle Bar. From 8 February to 10 March, guests will be able to enjoy an exclusive range of cocktails and desserts inspired by the luxury British accessories designer, while the Grand Café will be adorned with decorations that exude Lulu’s striking and distinctive style.
Guests who spend over £50 at The Royal Exchange Grand Café or Threadneedle Bar will receive a £15 voucher for purchases over £100 at Lulu Guinness. Meanwhile, those spending over £75 at Lulu Guinness will receive one complimentary Lulu Guinness cocktail at The Royal Exchange, and those spending over £100 will receive two complimentary cocktails.
Leica Sofort Instant Camera
If she doesn’t carry a photo of you in her purse, she soon will with this snappy little instant camera. After all, there is nothing romantic about cloud storage.
Links Infinite Love Collection
The newest collection from Links is just in time for Valentine’s Day. Links have brought together beautiful sterling silver and 18kt yellow gold entwined together as two hearts in an infinity symbol. Delicate touches like the adjustable clasp and heart shaped closure are a beautiful touch. The ring and pendant, each priced at £130, will fit perfectly into any collection.
Agent Provocateur Lorna Bra and Brief set
The delicate yet inviting scalloped edge of this plunge bra and brief set strikes just the right balance of naughty and nice for Valentine’s Day. Elegant with a twist, with French seam detailing on the edges, light pink Austrian embroidery on the scalloped edges and black net tulle base. Between the naturally non-padded cups sits a black bow with pink rose in the centre. No wonder it’s part of the new Icon range, it’s a modern classic. Bra at £75, Briefs £35.
Penhaligon’s Clandestine Clara
Spicy yet sweet, smoky yet velvety, this is a beautiful contradiction. Head notes of Rhum Vanilla give way to a woodier Cinnamon Musk heart. The exotic scent is enthralling, eventually evoking the base notes of Ambery Patchouli, and a thoughtful and passionate gift for the one that sets your heart racing. From £178 with the option to engrave.
