There’s no better way to show your love than with pure luxury. Thankfully, The Luxe Review is on hand with the most beautiful gift ideas for any partner for Valentine’s Day 2021.
Whether you’re buying a special gift for your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, or, for yourself, here are the best luxury gift ideas to really treat the one you love…
For style and substance: Honor Watch ES
Combining the beauty of giving jewellery with the practicality of a gadget they’ll use every single day, the sleek Honor Watch ES is truly a Valentine’s gift which does everything. Available in coral pink and meteorite black finishes, this gorgeous smartwatch pairs easily to your phone, with an impressive 10-day battery life, and bright 1.64″ AMOLED touchscreen display.
And for anyone who loves to work out, this is a great option, with a wealth of wellness features, too, with 95 different workout modes, a 24/7 heart rate monitor, a stress and sleep monitor, and even an animated virtual coach – like having a personal trainer on your wrist.
Not only is this a great smartwatch, but it’s also conveniently on sale until Valentine’s Day, on offer for just £69.99 (regular price £99.99). Perfect timing? We think so.
For fun and fresh jewellery: LOVE necklace by Tatty Devine
On Valentine’s Day, jewellery is always a good idea. Tatty Devine’s distinctive designs are the perfect mix of quirky and classy, with the added bonus that each piece is so unique that you can guarantee your Valentine won’t have something like it already. Even more fittingly, the British-based jewellery designer has a fabulous Valentine’s collection to choose from right now. We’re obsessed with the LOVE necklace (above), for its cute and colourful artwork, with just the right amount of romance.
Usefully, Tatty Devine also offers a gift wrap option in its signature lobster (who are known to mate for life) print, so you can also send gifts directly to your loved one, even if you can’t be with them in person this year.
£75, Tatty Devine

For the one you love as much as lattes: Home Brew coffee course
Finding activities you can do together (other than watching Netflix) for Valentine’s Day 2021 is no mean feat. But we’ve found the perfect at-home date for coffee lovers: The home brew course by the leading coffee consumers at the Artisan Coffee School.
Hosted via Zoom (and with dates available to book on Valentine’s Day and beyond), the two hour experience will teach budding baristas how to make the perfect cup of coffee from home.
You’ll learn things you never knew about your favourite drink, as well as the ideal coffee brewing times, weights, roasts and new coffee-making methods, to discover how to make your perfect coffee – a skill you’ll be able to enjoy forever after the course, too.
The Artisan Coffee School’s classes are hosted by super knowledgeable and passionate coffee experts who will educate you on any areas of coffee you’ve ever been curious about. Plus, the Artisan Coffee School even roasts its own coffee, at the Curious Roo coffee roastery in Chiswick, London, and this will be delivered to you ahead of the class – so you can hone your new brewing skills with some of the best beans in the business.

If your partner loves coffee, take their brew to the next level with this beautifully high end coffee maker by the experts at Melitta. This will make coffee which looks as good as it tastes, with a beautiful minimalist design and boasting a superior taste experience. Melitta’s especially designed filters allow for a shorter brew time, too.
We’re particular fans of the way every design aspect of this filter coffee maker has been carefully considered, from the mount of the filter ring which appears to be elegantly suspended in the air on its curved metal side, to the beautiful fluid form of the glass jug, which is made from durable borosilicate glass. Usefully, the drip stop means you don’t have to worry about leaving any drips on your counter, either.
