Whether it's your first date or you're celebrating your 30th year of marriage, spice up your Valentine's Day with a gift picked up at ifc mall

For Her

Crystal Palace

It's not just the crystal figurines at Swarovski that make for a lovely gift. Atelier Swarovski's Graceful Blooms collection combines femininity and modernity, and you can mix and match pieces to create the perfect set for the object of your affection. There are 11 designs to choose from, include three styles of earrings - we like the edginess of the mismatched set - all utilising the same champagne gold leaves and ruby crystals.

Talking Point

Impress your date with the difficult-to-nail gift of make-up. Charlotte Tilbury's once limited-edition Pillow Talk suite of products has recently been re-released as a permanent addition due to its popularity. Why do ladies love it? It's the perfect neutral shade between pink and nude, and has been mixed to match every shade, undertone or complexion. Tilbury's used this hue on a host of her celebrity clients, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Mariah Carey. It's available in a lipstick, lip pencil, blusher and eyeshadow palette.

Available at Lane Crawford

For Him

Carry On

This Leisure backpack from Brunello Cucinelli might set you back a pretty penny, but it will surely cement your relationship status! Made from nylon and grained calfskin, it's a classic that will - like your relationship - stand the test of time. Functional and refined, it features a drawstring closure covered by a flap with a zipper pocket, an exterior with two patch pockets and an interior that is lined with water-resistant fabric.

By George

If you can wait until the day after Valentine's Day, Penhaligon's is launching its newest Portraits characters, including the citrussy The Ingénue Cousin Flora and The Impudent Cousin Matthew – but you can always save that for next year, and pick up The Tragedy of Lord George, whose scent is a mix of tradition and mystery (or, in terms of notes, a combination of brandy, shaving soap and tonka bean). The cologne for the noble, respected man comes in a lovely flacon topped with an elegant golden antler bust, meant to be displayed proudly long after the final spritz.
