5 Valentine’s gifts for the unconventional

Valentine’s Day is traditionally spent showering the ones you love with the most rudimentary (and significantly overpriced) gifts – to most, this means chocolates, roses, and perfumes, which are fine and dandy for some, but we can think of far more fun things to spoil our loved ones with…

You auto be mine

For an adventure-filled Valentine’s Day (and any day afterwards), look no further than this Heritage Defender from Cool & Vintage. From mountain traversing and off-roading to curling up in the back to do some stargazing, the Land Rover will be sure to get your heart racing.

Wear your heart on your sleeve

The Twin Track 2.0 from Private White may not scream romantic to most, but we can’t think of anything more romantic than keeping your significant other warm yet stylish at chilly British racing events, such as the Goodwood Members' Meeting or Silverstone Classic.

Shot through the heart

For the Leica-loving photographer, the new limited-edition APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH lens would be the perfect V-Day present, especially when accompanied by the M-System. The bright red colour is bound to capture both the eyes and hearts of many — maybe even a new muse.

In sync

The finishing touch of every fine-dressed individual is a proper timepiece. And we don’t think anyone would say no to a 1990s Audemars Piguet. To find a matching his and hers set would be the ultimate present for a timeless couple. 

Thrill of the chase

This speedy little Vespa 125 is the perfect two-wheeler to whiz in and out of London traffic, whether solo or with a friend cosied up in the back. Before setting off, always remember safety first and wear your helmet, and with eye-catching limited-edition and one-off versions from Les Ateliers Ruby, we think most would be willing to endure the helmet hair, even on the most romantic day of the year.
