Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to spoil your loved one, and a luxe new accessory will do just the trick.

For the women…

What woman doesn’t love jewellery? Here at MyBag we are obsessed with Maria Francesca Pepe – the jewellery brand for the fashion conscious who like a bit of edge. Adorned with Swarovski crystals, these earrings, ring set and bracelet are guaranteed to make a statement.


A quirky lip bag from Lulu Guinness screams Valentine’s Day – and will work throughout the rest of the year too. Brighten up an outfit with a silver clutch bag or pouch for a real stand-out piece or go for classic black with gold detailing.


If your special someone is more of a classic gal, Aspinal of London is your go-to brand. This luxury British brand creates the kind of bags every woman wants (and let’s face it, needs) in their wardrobe. The ‘Essential’ tote bag is a real classic that can be worn for years to come – and will last, too.


And for the men…

Men are not to be forgotten on Valentine’s Day – they like to be spoiled just as much as the ladies! A great quality leather bag is a must in any man’s collection. These bags from Knutsford and The Cambridge Satchel Company are smart enough for the office and will score serious style points on the street.


Cold-weather accessories are a must this time of year, and make a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day. These leather gloves from French Connection are stylish and functional, while this cashmere scarf from Knutsford is a great British heritage piece perfect for layering.


No gift guide for men is complete without a watch – and with good reason. At just £59.99, this Timex watch features a classic watch face and black leather strap, and is a piece that will last a lifetime.


Lastly, get your man smelling like the dapper gentleman he is. Our friends at Mankind say Penhaligon’s is the brand to go to for a special gift. Not only are the products fantastic, but just look at that gorgeous packaging! The Mini Him Collection contains a selection of scents – perfect for him to pick and choose.
