With Valentine’s Day this weekend, there is not a lot of time to pick out a perfect present for your special someone.
So, if you (like me) are always a little bit disorganised when it comes to present buying, look no further as I have compiled a top five gifts for men and a top five gifts for women from Vida Vida (and you even get free UK delivery in time for Valentine’s Day! if you order by Wednesday - just click the red "Valentine's Coupon" button on the right*).
Remember, all our leather goods can be personalised with a short message, name or initials, so you can make any of our products even more special for that special person in your life.
For the woman in your life:
Leather Make-Up Bag, £30
With an internal zippered compartment and a waterproof lining, this travel essential is practical and stylish. This is a great gift that you know will be used endlessly.
Vintage Two Pocket Leather Satchel, £55
This saddle bag is absolutely perfect for someone who is constantly on the run. It fits in all the essentials without being bulky, and it really is so fashionable right now. I have already put this on my personal wish list, because saddle bags are really so on trend at the moment! (I wrote an article about them too!)
Large Leather Satchel, £80
This is a slightly more classic bag (that is definitely still very stylish!), which will definitely be appreciated. It is perfect for the working woman, with space for a laptop and all your other bits and bobs, while staying perfectly gorgeous, and only getting better with age!
Extra Large Leather Weekend Bag, £195
For a present that will keep on giving and that will guarantee a very happy response, get this and sit back as there is no end to this bag’s brilliance. From its versatility to its beautiful design, anyone would appreciate this, and if you want any more proof of how great it is, look at this article I wrote way back when the hype around this travel bag began.
Silver Rings, £35 - £50
If you are looking for a Valentine’s gift that is slightly less leather, one of our handmade silver rings could be perfect. We have a range of different rings but my personal favourite is this coiled ring, and one of them is bound to be the romantic present you have been looking for!
For the man in your life:
Grande Leather Messenger, £85
This is a great bag for your busy partner with its laptop compartment and the vast space, while still remaining effortlessly cool and stylish. The messenger is simpler than the satchel but will no doubt look great wherever it is taken and be enjoyed thoroughly.Large Black Satchel, £95
For a more classic style but still with its modern twist, this black leather satchel is the perfect twist for the contemporary yet practical man. It looks fantastic now but will only improve through use, and so this is a fantastic present if you want something that will look great and be used. A lot.Leather Duffle Bag 20”, £130
If your other half is a budding gym goer, or perhaps fitness was one of their New Year’s resolutions, this is a fantastic way to motivate. This duffle bag, which comes in other sizes and shapes, is perfect for holding a change of clothes and any other bits and bobs needed, while still remaining on trend.
For a man who’s always on the go, this is the perfect travel companion. With pockets for cards and coins and its gorgeous design, you can’t go wrong with such a simple gift. If a wallet sounds like a good idea, but this one is not for you (or rather, your partner), then have a look at our others.
Leather iPad Case Organiser, £50
If his iPad is almost equal to you in importance, this would be a great gift as it would not only help keep him organised, but it would keep his pride and joy safe and secure plus he will think of you each time he opens it up to play. We also have other leather iPad cases, including this in black leather.
