Getting pampered on Valentine’s Day is the best way to keep the love alive, whether it’s for yourself or a gesture to your partner that they only deserve the best. Plan a couple’s appointment or a much-needed solo date by splurging on the best treatments—manicures included. Claws Studio is slowly becoming a popular go-to place, especially for those who want to zhuzh up their nails with extensions, nail art and more. Plot your appointments ASAP, because slots run out fast!

Keep this Valentine’s Day gift small but meaningful with eye-catching yet dainty rings. Penny Pairs has a lot of designs to choose from, but the Pixie Gold Ring (P1,899) is a definite show-stopper with its asymmetrical design and tri-colored stones. But if you want to explore something edgier, the Sabine Gold Ring (P1,799) is a great choice. The snake motif matches perfectly as the ring wraps snugly around the finger.
Check out more rings on the official Penny Pairs website.

Brand new kicks

Valentine’s Day also offers the perfect time to spend on things we want but don’t necessarily need. Whether for yourself or your special someone, a new pair of kicks is the way to go. The adidas Gazelle (P5,000) offers a great alternative to the Samba, especially for those who want the same silhouette but can’t commit to the gum sole. Meanwhile, white sneakers are foolproof—so a new pair of Stan Smith (P5,300) shoes will definitely land you on their good sides.
A love-month colored treat
Small and compact, the Longchamp Box-Trot Coin Purse (or its XS-sized counterpart) is an adorable Valentine’s Day gift idea if your loved one prefers adding tiny pieces to their bag collection. The purse comes with a detachable strap, allowing you to use it as a cross-body or standalone purse. In addition, its vibrant candy color perfectly matches love month.
