You may have already booked a restaurant for Valentine’s Day, but have you also picked out a thoughtful gift?
The perfect gift for the leading woman in your life may just be written in the stars. Here are our recommendations based on her star sign’s traits for your inspiration.
Gift for an Aries woman
Her traits: Ambitious and assertive, your partner drives you crazy sometimes with her fiery temperament but you also love her zest for adventure and boldness in her endeavours.
Pandora jewellery pieces
Even as she often speaks up boldly, your partner will certainly still want to make a statement without saying a word. If you’re looking for something personalised that she can wear every day, consider shopping at Pandora.
Check out new jewellery designs from its iconic collections – Pandora Moments and Pandora Timeless – as well as a brand-new chain design: the Pandora Moments Studded Chain.
The chain is available as both a necklace and bracelet and its design pays homage to the iconic Moments Snake Chain that was introduced more than two decades ago.
This new chain features a new clasp design that’s shaped like a heart with a spring-back closure. The clasp also represents the infinity loop – a romantic symbol that your partner will appreciate.
As for the new pieces, we particularly like the Frosted Red Murano Glass & Hearts Charm (S$69) that’s handcrafted from frosted red Murano glass, the Two-tone Padlock Splittable Heart Charm (S$89) that has a 14k rose gold-plated removable inner heart that can be worn as separate pieces, as well as the Padlock and Key Dangle Charm (S$99), a two-part piece with a separate key that you can keep as a symbol of your commitment.
Pandora jewellery pieces are available at all Pandora stores.

MCM Upcycling Capsule for Valentine’s Day
For the first time, German luxury fashion house has introduced a Valentine’s Day upcycled assortment – a cause that your empathetic partner will resonate with.
The capsule fuses sentiment with design and material with emotion, reminding us that love is a voyage which flows across several forms – whether it’s the affinity for a friend, the bond between besties, or a labour of love, and presents journeys from past to future as well as new to old and back to new again.
Through the process of upcycling, an assortment of bestsellers from MCM’s heritage collection is given a new look, highlighted by Aren Crescent Hobo as the signature silhouettes of the Valentine’s Day season. Complementing the upcycling capsule is the Stark Backpack and München Tote in Blossom Pink ranging from medium to extra mini sizes.
The Valentine’s Day Upcycling Project is the next in a series of limited edition drops that capture the essence of the brand’s DNA of creativity and the arts.
Introducing handpicked items from the brand’s excess inventory whose lifecycles are extended through an artisanal redesign process across hand-painted graphics and patterns, this project opens new product loops to reduce the brand’s environmental impact – showing love not just towards loved ones, but towards the environment as well.
The collection is available at all MCM stores.
