Valentine’s Day season is on! Whether you've been married for 10 years, in a relationship for 3 months, practicing open love, or simply enjoying a relationship with yourself… This period is marked by a flurry of advertisements and celebrations of love in all its forms. At Numéro Netherlands, while we are certainly not against love, we are particularly in favor of gifts. That's why we've put together a Valentine's Day wish list, complete with shades of pink and red, to give you a great reason to spoil your loved ones or, of course, yourself!

Indulge in the classic charm of this unisex belt, meticulously crafted from Italian vegetable-tanned leather and adorned with an antiqued silver ‘D’ logo buckle. We love the idea of this as a gift – not only does it seamlessly complement anything on our list, but it’s also an item you can give to your special someone while secretly keeping in mind the possibility of wearing it yourself. A two-in-one gift, perhaps?

What’s better than gifting your loved one a stylish cardholder to subtly encourage them to shower you with gifts? This delicate and slim pink leather card holder by Ambush, made from 100% calf skin, features the AMBUSH® silver logo with heart detailing on the front.

Whether your significant other is a collector of loyalty cards and cherished photos, requiring a spacious wallet, or prefers a sleek design like this red one from Comme des Garçons, the choice is yours.

Staying true to our love for Ambush, we couldn’t resist featuring another fashion item in this edition of Numéro Netherlands’ Wish List. This pierced earring, adorned with a heart-shaped pink crystal, is sold individually and looks just as fabulous on him as it does on her!

If you want to make your beloved blush, consider a Dior Backstage Rosy Glow in 001 Pink. Faster and more effective than a poem, this blush would be your perfect ally to add a rosy tint to those special moments.

In the makeup game, if you’re unafraid of lipstick marks, indulge in the tinted and fragrant allure of Chanel lipsticks. Renowned for their superior textures, long-lasting wear, and delightful powdery scent, we recommend the Rouge Allure Intense Lipstick in 99 Pirate. And if you’ve never thought about matching your lips to your lashes, the Noir Allure Mascara in 17 Rouge Grenat is a must to accentuate your eyes.

Fed up with your loved one’s boring or overly animated phone case? If she often captures her favorite outfits in mirrors to share with the world, she’ll surely appreciate this Leopard-print phone case, seemingly the trend of 2024. Designed in collaboration with @mingleesimmons, this limited edition Ming Lee iPhone 15 case is a nostalgic nod to her childhood memories of playing with clothes in her mother’s closet, where a leopard carpet always made an appearance.

Every fashionista needs a pair of pointed mules, but do you have the Valentine’s Day version in glossy red? Now’s the perfect time to subtly tilt your phone so your partner discreetly glimpses these fantastic mules. Presented in a striking red hue, they boast a sleek pointed toe and are crafted from shiny patent leather, elegantly resting on an hourglass-shaped heel.

Adding a touch of lingerie to our final list, we present a best-seller from Agent Provocateur. The Lindie Short Gown, with its kimono-inspired shape and flowing sleeves on a fine Italian tulle base, ensures a captivating and alluring look.

We needed to conclude our list on a high note with a timeless Valentine’s Day essential – jewelry! For our last wishlist of the season (yes, the last of the season, but certainly not the last overall!) We introduce you to the brand Vann, known for combining innovative solutions with traditional craftsmanship. We’ve chosen the Jumbo Heart Bracelet, a symbol of love to remind you that Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love above all else. We’re head over heels for this bracelet.
