If you are hoping to make Valentine’s Day really special this year, why not try one of these five ideas for original and memorable gifts, to show your loved one just how much you care, from amazing helicopter tours to dramatically different floral bouquets.
Spectacular Panoramic Helicopter Tours
Can there be any more spectacular way of saying I love you than taking one of Monacair’s panoramic helicopter tours? In addition to Nice – Monaco helicopter transfers Monacair offers three different helicopter package deals: a ten minute flight above Monaco, also taking in Cap Martin and Menton; a twenty minute flight over several beautiful hilltop villages before heading west across Eze, St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Villefranche sur Mer; or the thirty minute ultimate French Riviera discovery, with incredible views across the Côte d’Azur between Monaco and Cannes.
Couples’ Spa Treatment
What could be more romantic than sharing a blissful side-by-side massage together, using aromatic essential oils? The Carol Joy Spa at the Fairmont Hotel, winner of the Monaco’s Leading Spa Resort 2016 by the World Travel Award, has two couples’ experience suites and offers a choice between two indulgent packages: Couples’ Bliss, which lasts 90 minutes and incorporates freestyle techniques with a mini-facial; and Treasured Time, which lasts for either 60 or 90 minutes, using purpose-designed movements to stimulate circulation, promote deep relaxation and restore the flow of energy throughout the body.
Create Her Signature Perfume
All women love perfume, but imagine how special it would be to treat your loved one to a signature, personalised perfume all of her own? At Molinard‘s ateliers in either Nice or Grasse, you can indulge in two hours of choosing from nearly 100 essences to compose a personalised 75 ml bottle of fragrance, with Champagne, refreshments and cakes to make the experience even more pleasurable.
Commission A Portrait
What greater romantic gesture could there be than to commission a portrait of your loved one? Monaco-based artist Marta Grigorieva specialises in fine art portraits, and has completed works for many celebrities, business leaders and royalty. South-African born artist Stéfanie van Zyl was an illustrator for Le Figaro before settling in Monaco, from where she has painted members of the royal family, including HSH Princess Charlene.
