29 January 2024 • Written by Katia Damborsky

For the husband who likes simple style to the girlfriend who's dreaming of a sun-kissed Greek yacht charter, these are the Valentine's Day gifts the BOAT team is coveting this year... 

For the one who loves a weekend break

Carl Friedrik Compact Weekender

Polished style meets practicality in this Carl Friedrik Nubuck weekend bag, which comes complete with stain-resistant lining and a handy exterior pocket. An olive colourway and mahogany detailing sets this apart from the crowds, and a choice of two straps ensures it's versatile as both a gym bag or travel bag, plus it gets bonus points for its soft, yacht-friendly composition.  £395, carlfriedrik.com/

For the fragrance collector

Amaffi Marococa For Women

With floral notes of jasmine and gardenia balanced by a gourmand fizz of frangipani and touches of tonka beans, passion fruit and citrusy yuzu ,this fragrance is well-rounded and perfectly suited to springtime. The sculpted bottle will look at home on any vanity and it comes in a case lined with pink velvet that can double as a jewellery box. £4,500, amaffi.com/

For the one who’d rather be abroad:

Sabrina Candle Fig Tree Fragrance

Fresh fig and subtle oud notes come together to create a rich, full-bodied bougie with excellent throw and signature Sabrina packaging. The perfect gift for someone dreaming of sun-baked Greek beaches backed by leafy fig trees. €145, sabrinamontecarlo.com/

For the man who likes simple style:

Graff love knot cufflinks in white gold


Crafted in 18-carat white gold with a whale-back closure, these cufflinks are an elevated take on a simple style. Wear for meetings, special occasions or date nights on deck. £8,100, graff.com/

For the one with cold feet

Frette Icon Slippers

Embroidered with the classic Frette emblem, this cosy pair of slippers is made of buttery soft leather and crisp cotton for a soft finish on the foot. Ideal for wearing around the home or padding around on teak decks – best paired with one of Frette's feather-soft linen bathrobes.  £190, frette.com/

For the woman who’s always rushing:

Panerai Luminor Due Prada Re-Nylon 38mm

Panerai's Luminor Due collection was designed to blend historic Panera style with a sporty twist and refined touches. The result is the ultimate everyday wear, with water resistance to splashes and light swimming and the added elegance of a polished steel bezel and baby pink strap. £6,000, panerai.com/

For the traveller

Smythson Heart Keyring in Panama, Orange

This tangerine colourway of this Smythson keyring will add a pop of colour to any luggage, and the heart motif makes it the ideal luxury Valentine's Day gift. Finished in crossgrain leather with gold etching.  £70, smythson.com/

For the young at heart

Riva toy - Aquariva

Available as either a full set or as individual models, these wooden Riva toys are fun to put together and make for great additions to any superyacht study.

For the one who’s always hosting

Whispering Angel, 75cl
