This past year, we’ve all prioritized practicality, putting frivolous or impulse clothing purchases on hold and instead buying items that will improve our daily life in one way or another. When it comes to finding something special for Valentine’s Day, the same mentality still applies. While a box of chocolates or bouquet of roses are traditional gifts, why not take a break from those clichés and say “I love you” with a beautiful jewelry box? Not only can she use it well after February 14th, but it also doubles as decor that can liven up your home.
These aren’t your typical leather zip around travel cases; these jewelry box gifts look more like objet d’art. Take Anissa Kermiche’s versions, which disguise your jewelry’s home as a ceramic sculpture you’d proudly display on a bookshelf or entryway table instead of hiding away in a dresser drawer. Sophie Bille Brahe’s elegant velvet tassel-trimmed cases are the perfect place to stash keepsakes and would sit pretty atop any vanity. Los Objetos Decorativos clam shell-shaped container or Funky Table Italy’s disco ball box would make for a fun talking piece to dress up any coffee table.
When it comes to finding the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day, think outside the box.
