Ideas for Lady Gifts for St Valentine's Day

24 January 2018

Every year it's a mind puzzler what to gift for St. Valentines. The longer you are together with your partner, the harder those holidays and special events are. Men often wish woman just goes and buys herself what she wants. But most ladies prefer to get a gift, and a nice gift, something that she wants. So go figure it out. We hope these few tips will help you out.

1. Accessories are better than clothing. Jewelry, purses, and sunglasses are always better than clothing. Clothing is getting harder to buy as a gift because many brands lack quality and style is way too diverse. Not to mention that getting a right fit is very hard. You will never have a problem with a fit for jewelry, handbags and the majority of sunglasses. It is a general misconception that sunglasses need to fit facial shape. It's not the case anymore because sunglasses are made as fashion objects, not a vision eye care. So the shape and size are lesser of a concern when gifting sunglasses.

2. Brand name matters. We live in a very commercial world. The brand name is very important when making a gift. The higher level the brand, the more valuable the gift becomes. Many fashion companies recognize that brand name sells, and have diversified in different collections or even sub-brands to offer the product in the different price range. For example, Armani has five brands: Giorgio Armani Privé, Giorgio Armani, Armani Collezioni are most expensive. Emporio Armani, Armani Jeans, ArmaniExchange are less expensive than Giorgio and Emporio. 
Same story for Roberto Cavalli - Just CavalliMarc Jacobs - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Prada - Prada Sport, etc. So getting a nice brand name does not mean spending ridiculous money. 

3. Sunglasses is a very good gift. All sunglasses in Illuminata Eyewear are by known brands and are good quality. We carry expensive luxury brands and more affordable luxury brands to offer customers not only a pricing range but also style choices. Very often a customer will choose less expensive sunglasses not because of price, but because of style. Utility feature of sunglasses makes them a very good gift. Your lady will wear them on her face, will look fabulous and love you more each time she wears them.

4. Packaging is important. It is part of presentation and gifting experience. Adults are like children. We all love unpacking, unboxing and enjoying the intriguing moment of getting a gift. Many brands that we carry at Illuminata Eyewear provide not only glasses case but also a hard box and a signature shopping bag. Tiffany, Prada and Roberto Cavalli have the most elaborate packaging for gifts.

5. Trust your instinct or trust professional fashion advisors. At Illuminata, we care a lot about style and can pretty much guarantee to help you choose the best possible gift. We know our stuff! But you will never go wrong with simply trusting your gut. If you follow these simple rules, your gift will be most memorable.
