This Valentine’s Day, we’re inviting you to check into the Love Hotel, the ultimate destination for all your heart desires (aka, the best spot in town for picking up a Valentine’s Day gift for your love interest, crush, better half, serious significant other…).

From rose-infused scents via Jo Malone London and cult red lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury to those iconic, red-bottomed soles c/o Christian Louboutin and home buys that’ll spell it out for you from Jonathan Adler and Nomad Noe, there’s a Valentine’s Day gift for everyone you’re thinking of this year at the Love Hotel.

There’s only one house rule… Please DO disturb.

Object of your affection hard to please? You’ll want to pay attention. An It bag will win you serious points. First up, the adorable Prada Cleo Mini Bag, which comes in a classic black and beautiful red - just the right size for carrying all their prized possessions. Marc Jacobs have created a neat little shoulder bag – The Slingshot – in hot ‘Lipstick Pink’. If shoes are their soul mate, then Magda Butrym’s legendary Spiral Flower Sandals, adorned with a tulle rose, might just be the one. Want to be a little more obvious? Go for Gucci’s heart-shaped necklace that’ll allow them to wear their heart on their chest.

FOR HIM

Struggling to find a gift for him? You’ve checked into the right place. From skincare saviours to cult accessories, the Love Hotel has gifts galore. 111 Skin’s Contour Firming Mask uses diamond particles to lift, firm and hydrate the skin. For the fragrance obsessives, The House of Creed’s limited-edition Absolu Aventus blends grapefruit and pineapple with smoky Haitian vetiver for a one-of-a-kind scent. And when it comes to luxury accessories, you can’t get much more iconic than Gucci’s Goldie Belt, featuring the brand’s signature G buckle. Throw in the Prada Camera Bag – a classic – and Givenchy’s card holder to keep them organised.

FOR MAKEUP LOVERS

Ever mine, ever thine, ever fine, these timeless beauty buys are always a good idea. Charlotte Tilbury’s Glowgasm collection never fails to hit the spot, but the Beauty Light Wands, which come in pink, peach and gold, are among our favourites. To help them nail that flawless base? MAC’s Studio Radiance Serum-Powered Foundation delivers complexion-blurring properties with skincare – think hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and powerful superfoods – in a mega 56 shades. To deliver those big, bold lashes, you’ll want to gift them NARS Climax Mascara for lashes that won’t smudge or clump. And when it comes to lips, it’s all about the master of the pout, Kylie Jenner. Kylie Cosmetics’ Posie K Gloss & Liner Duo are the perfect pair.

FOR SKINCARE OBSESSIVES

There’s more than one way to get glowing skin this Valentine’s Day… introducing the skincare products that work overtime. From La Mer’s iconic The Treatment Lotion, which features their legendary Miracle Broth – think of it as a rush of liquid energy for the skin - to Charlotte Tilbury’s bestselling Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, which hydrates, brightens and smooths the skin in one application; their complexion is about to go up a level. At Dermalogica, there’s a new kid on the block in the form of their Pro Collagen Banking Serum, which helps to protect and preserve the skin’s collagen for the future. As for the lips, it's all about Kylie Skin’s Lip Oil, which leaves lips looking naturally plumped. Just what V. Day calls for.

FOR FRAGRANCE ADDICTS

Thinking of sending a love note to the object of your affection this Valentine’s Day? These are the fragrances to consider. Acqua di Parma’s Colonia is a stone cold classic for a reason. Timeless, elegant, fresh; think sunny Sicilian citrus fruits, florals c/o roses and lavender, and a base of sandalwood. The exclusive to FLANNELS Moncler Sunrise Pour Femme and Pour Homme make the perfect duo for him and for her. While Burberry’s Goddess will serve the main woman in your life with an ambery scent filled with a triple hit of vanilla in the form of infusion, caviar and absolute. Want to decorate their bathroom shelf with something fun? Rabanne’s Phantom comes in a cute robot-inspired bottle. Inside? It’s a creamy, sexy, woody scent featuring lavender, lemon and vanilla.

FOR HOMEBODIES

Want to decorate their abode? FLANNELS Home has the ultimate objects of affection. A coffee table book looks just as good on the shelf as it does in their hands. Top of our wish list? Assouline’s Cartier Panthere Book, which chronicles the history of the Cartier panther, from sketches to its appearance in pop culture. You can’t go wrong with a scented candle. Cander Paris’s Matriarch Scented Candle will fill their home with the smell of wood and linen, while Nomad Noe’s Lover Scented Candle and Jonathan Adler’s Vice Candle will spell it out for you. For something different, Mette Ditmer Denmark’s sculpture of a woman sitting down will bring a touch of interest to their shelves.
