Roses are red, violets are blue, I don't know what Valentines present, to get for you!

Look no further. We at Westgate London have put together five Valentines present ideas for him and for her.
We understand that sometimes roses and chocolates just won't cut it anymore, so take a look at some of our suggestions below.
Gifts for her
You can never go wrong with buying a lady a bag for whatever occasion. We've put together some valentines inspired bags from Valentino, Gucci and Bvlgari. You don't have to go with a valentines inspired bag as your loved one might not like pink tones or hearts. If not go for a classic handbag. For example a black or beige Valentino Rockstud bag, a black Saint Laurent cross body bag or a Chloe Faye shoulder bag.
Alike to bags, you can never go wrong with buying a lady a pair of shoes for whatever the occasion too. Just a bit of advice before you buy, if you are planning to buy high heeled shoes look in her wardrobe first at her size in high shoes. Some ladies wear a different size shoe in high heels to flats, so just be aware of that. We've picked out some stunning courts from Saint Laurent, Valentino and Jimmy Choo. You can't go wrong with a classic black pair with accents of red just give a subtle hint to Valentines day.
There is some stunning watches you can pick up on the market today. If you can find a really special watch for your partner it's a great gift as it can be worn everyday. It's nice to have jewellery you can only wear on special occasions but a present you can put on everyday and feel great is definitely a present I'd look for. Versace have a selection of Palazzo Empire watches in gold, silver, black and rose gold to suit whatever jewellery colour they like most.
You can only buy perfume for your loved one if you didn't buy it them for Christmas or if you did, they've requested more. Usually perfume will take longer than a month to use and you don't want to look like you've run out of present ideas. If you haven't already got them some of Christmas then perfume is a perfect idea. If you know of a perfume they wear and it looks as if they are running low go for that one. If it looks like they have a fair bit left, go for a different scent from the same brand or go for one with a beautiful bottle. Viktor and Rolf, Guerlain and Dior have stunning bottles that would look great on her bed side table.
5. Eye shadow palette
Within the last few years there have been surges of popular eye shadow palettes which a lot of ladies want to own. Specifically I didn't suggest make up as make up is so varied and people like different products from different brands, it can be a hard one to get right. However these popular eye shadow palettes give your loved one a selection of colours they can play around with and with a seal of approval from the UK beauty industry, I'm sure your loved one will be extremely happy with this choice.
Gifts for him
It's not just ladies that like new bags. Having a special new bag to head out to the world with everyday is a great feeling. Smythson have a range of coloured backpacks, holdalls and saddle bags made with the finest quality fabrics and attention to detail. Whether they are into backpacks or over the the shoulder bags, Smythson has a bag for them.
2. Wallet/Card holder
It's always best to buy something that is useful, so you know it will become used. Every man will use a card holder or wallet so why not get them a brand new one. There's a selection of subtle colours from Thom Browne but some more fun and patterned ones from Paul Smith. Find out if your partner is more likely to use a card holder or wallet and buy accordingly.
Watches are also a great idea for men too. A lot of men won't actually wear any other accessories, maybe a ring but that's about it. Having a nice watch can say a lot about someone so why not make them feel extra special. Also an added bonus they will always be on time!
You can't go wrong with a new state of the art piece of technology and again another useful gift. Cameras are a great present as you get to learn a new skill, it's interesting working out how the camera works and everything you can do with it. But also imagine how many great Instagram shots your going to get if your partner is wanting to try out their new camera skills.
360 virtual reality headsets, mini guitars or an Xbox are all the weird and wonderful gifts he may really enjoy and never expect you to buy. As much as useful gifts are useful sometimes getting a fun gift can make life just a bit more fun.
