With Valentine’s day around the corner, you may be looking for inspiration. I have picked 10 brilliant Valentines gifts perfect for the luxury traveller.
Smart Turnout Watches & Leisurewear
For something unique and “just right”, Smart Turnout is a superb choice for the man in your life. Smart Turnout is a regimental term, meaning “to look your absolute best, and have a stylish appearance about one’s self”. Smart Turnout watches and accessories continue this military theme and are designed with one eye on modern styling and craftsmanship, and another on the colours of our historic regiments and schools. They have a wide array of NATO watch straps in different patterns and stripes, first worn by the Flying Corps, formed in 1912. The strength of their designs lies in their unique and colourful variety, and with interchangeable watch straps, you can easily keep up with the modern man’s diverse wardrobe.
After diamonds, pearls have to be a girl’s best friend. The unique handmade pearl jewellery created by Naughton Braun is a must have for anyone looking for a really special gift for their wife or girlfriend this Valentines. Naughton Braun design creations out of an amazing variety of pearls. Check out these tooth pearl earrings. I am also a fan of potato pearls; large uneven pearls that look a tiny bit like a potato. I hadn’t come across them before, but now I know about them, I am drawn to any jewellery featuring these rather special pearls. Find your special pearl for your special person.
Filmstar Bronze & Glow
This time of year, skin which has been subjected to the harsh winter in the Northern Hemisphere, could do with a helping hand. Bronze highlighting is your answer, adding a warming glow to your cheeks. Born from Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic and best-selling Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Charlotte has just introduced her new Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow.
Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow combines the wonder sculpt shade with bronze tones to shape facial framework with a perfectly pink blush with finely crushed pearls for a limitless glow. Make your darling feel like a film star; surely an ideal gift?
The Ultimate Travel Camera
Teleport your friends into your travels with the Insta360 Nano S.Taking still pictures is SO last year! Recently Apple introduced it’s Harry Potter style animated “live photos”. Now a company called Insta360 has launched a camera which take 360 and 3-dimensional photos (just look through the headset and you will be transported INSIDE your photo!).
The Insta360 Nano S has video chat, offering 4K video and multiView shooting. Like I say, gone are the days of stills. With this camera, you can immerse your family or your blog readers into your travel adventures. They will feel like they are travelling with you. It also comes in a stylish apple-esque box.
BlomDahl Skin Friendly Sparkly Jewellery
They may not be made of real diamonds but they sparkle just as much! I am such a huge fan of BlomDahl earrings in particular as they are some of the only earrings I can constantly wear without my ears reacting. Add to that, they have the best set of earrings in the world (IMHO). I love their glitterball earrings. Like little round baubles of sparkle, these mini glitter balls are so pretty. Blomdahl also has some great “diamond” Swarovski crystal-encrusted hoops and studs. BloomDahl Jewellery is the gift that cares.

Bramley Toiletries For Girls
If the Beatrix Potter tales of bunny rabbits and kittens had a fragrance, they would smell like Bramley, a luxury toiletry brand with delicious English country garden fragrances.

It helps that the shampoos and moisturisers have pictures of flowers on the bottles and they make the perfect gift for a girl who likes to smell sweet!
