Straight to the heart of it
According to a global survey 77 per cent of women receive chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day, when what they really want is jewellery, and 66 per cent of women agree they receive better gifts when they drop hints. That said, if jewellery is what you want, we suggest (with a little effort and a love note of course) that you drop him a hint that won’t go unnoticed. All it takes is a little reading between the lines and he’ll hopefully spoil you with a beautiful piece from Pandora’s 2018 Valentine’s Collection. With the usual pinks, a dash of red and some controversial lip motifs, this collection is both conventional Pandora Valentine’s Day style and a slight departure from it. Priced from R799 the collection is available www.pandorashop.co.za or instore. To find a concept store near you visit www.pandora.net.
