The Valentine's Edit

For Valentine’s, we propose an idea nothing short of crazy: give something that will actually be used. Just imagine the look on their face when they realise that the oblong package that looked like a box of chocolates is actually a gorgeous leather purse.

Thurlaston clutch handbag from Village England

A bright, fun purse that doubles as a clutch wristlet with a big pocket on the front for your phone. Shop the Wentworth HERE.

Or a beautiful envelope clutch to take on nights out or to dinner. Perhaps not strictly an ‘essential’, they’ll find more uses for it than previously imagined and enjoy the little details that make it easy to use on-the-go; the extra-long zip pull and thin detachable strap that coils up inside the bag discreetly when not needed. And perhaps something useful but not completely necessary is exactly the sort of treat that is so lovely for a Valentine's gift. Shop the Thurlaston HERE.

And for those who like to mark the occasion in the traditional colour scheme, the red Cranleigh cross body is just the ticket: beautifully pigmented red leather in a classic cross body shape that's sure to become their daytime go-to. Find it HERE.
