Celeb-inspired Valentine's Day gift guide: The Beckhams

05 FEBRUARY 2013

This Valentine's Day will be David and Victoria Beckham's 13th together as a married couple. For more than a decade, their relationship has been a comforting constant in their fast-paced celebrity life.

As committed the Beckhams are, they still have to carve out time for romance between the demands of their respective careers and needs of their four childrenBrooklyn, 13, Romeo, ten, Cruz, seven, and 17-month-old Harper.

Victoria herself admits that she and David like to reignite the spark that first drew them to one another back in her Spice Girls era. Speaking in 2011, the designer said she and her husband enjoy "date nights" every Wednesday, and added: "'We're soulmates. We're so lucky to have each other. We love each other".

There's a wide spectrum of Valentine's Day gift-ideas out there for married couples like the Beckham's who want to keep the passion – and memory – of their love alive. 

For Her:

Designer Victoria pays attention to detail, and women like her know the perfect "date night" starts with the right atmosphere. Heaven Dream & Affection Candles, £18.50, create the perfect Valentine's mood with their sensual scents.

When the founder of one of fashion's most successful labels sheds her professional skin, something luxurious is required to replace her designer threads. Artisan perfumer Ruth Mastenbroek's satin trim, scented bath robe, £120,  is up to the job. Beneath, Boux Avenue's hot pink babydoll set, £30,  is a playful and passionate nod to the night's theme.

13 years of marriage is quite a feat, and when long-term couples like David and Victoria toast their long history of romance, some vintage bubbly from Laithwaite's luxury wine trio, £50,  is the perfect drink to raise your glass with.

For Him:

David Beckham could be seen as a man that has it all – a beautiful wife, four gorgeous kids, a successful football career, his own underwear line and fragrance collection – but that isn't to say that it's impossible to buy a man like him a Valentines gift that he would appreciate.

The footballer is very much a style icon and jewellery designer Antonio Ben Chimol's OFM leather bracelets, £75, make the idea gift for a fashion-conscious man like David.

For a stylish gift with a functional purpose, quality watch specialists Swiss Military Hanowa have a classically masculine gold Patriot Chronograph model, £259, which would suit a gentleman like Mr Beckham down to the ground.

But if it is something truly unique that is required for his Valentines gift, then a Porche-designed bespoke home bar from Johnnie Walker Blue Label is sure to have the desired effect and will provide the perfect location at home for the happy couple to share a romantic moment with a Valentines cocktail.
