Framed, on canvas, or just as they are, these gorgeous locally made prints definitely get our seal (stamp) of approval.

Vendome Lingerie in ‘Toffee Apple’ by Chantelle

This gorgeous’Toffee Apple’ lingerie set will only be available at the new Chantelle boutique – opening soon in City Walk – hooray! Okay, so it might be cliched to give/receive/wear special lingerie on Valentine’s Day but we don’t care, it’s pretty, and it makes us feel good – and that’s all that matters, mamas.

Demi bra in Toffee Apple AED 375, Briefs in Toffee Apple AED 185, available at City Walk

His & Hers ‘Up-Cycled’ Bicycle From Charicycle 

Cycling is romantic. period. The wind in your hair, the sun on your face – the feeling of freedom as you float through the neighbourhood (and escape the family for a few mins). Well, we’ve found the most beautiful bikes that are not only about looking great, they are also ‘up cycled’, using old frames from Japan – and also about ‘giving back! Because every bicycle that Chari Cycles sells contributes directly to funding bikes for children in refugee camps. And sharing the love is what Valentine’s is all about.

Available in lots of pretty colours – from AED 1200 at


Try Something New

Looking to change things up? Whether it’s making date night more exciting, or simply getting out of your humdrum workweek routines, this fun book provides 100 different suggestions for couples from the simple (“build a blanket fort and watch movies” or “mix a cocktail for your partner”) to the elaborate (“go on an all-day scavenger hunt” or “pick five ingredients that your partner needs to cook something with”).

Try Something New: 100 Fun & Creative Ways to Spend Time Together, USD16.54 (From AED 60), Available at 


‘Haring Heart’ Underwear for Men & Women

Fans of pop artist Keith Haring will heart these super-comfy premium underoos from American specialty purveyor Me Undies (they’re known for their ultra-soft modal fabric). With four women’s styles to choose from and three for men, you and the hubs are both guaranteed to find the right fit.

Me Undies ‘Haring Heart’ special edition underwear, from USD18 + flat USD12 shipping charge (approx. AED66 + AED44), available at

Gifts are always nice, but most of all we hope you’re able to tell someone special you love them. Have a very happy Valentine’s Day, mama!
