The ultimate handloom gift guide for Valentine’s Day with WeaverStory

It’s the month of love and here are a few things we are absolutely besotted by!

Growing up in a typical Indian household has had us all indulge in extra-cheesy Bollywood romances that have spoiled us for life. And when you think about it, is there something more tragic than unrequited love? Well, yes, if not finding your partner the right Valentine’s Day gift is anything to go by. Gone are those cringe-worthy days when you surprised your partner with old-school candy bars and corny stuffed toys. It’s time for an upgrade, and nothing gets us in the mood for love more than spoiling our spouses with gifts worth treasuring for life. Sure, a handwritten note and a careful arrangement of flowers are meaningful options; however, nothing truly beats the allure of some classic favorites that are true to your partner’s taste. And we have quite the appetite for these delectable treats that promise a sweet ending without those pesky calories.

Below, find a curation of classic pieces that range from some drool-worthy jewellery and elegant sarees to menswear kurta sets and Nehru jackets. It’s time to surprise your partner with fancy presents that do not scream cringe, and we’ve got just the right selection.

For her:

Pashmina Shawls


We keep our eyes peeled for comfortable winter accessories that do not take away the luxe appeal and have us flaunting our best winter style. It’s time to finally absorb some of that effortless chic into your partner’s wardrobe by opting for a timeless pashmina shawl, which creates a perfect collision of traditional and contemporary. Sprinkled with Soznikari and Tilla embroidery, these Kashmiri signatures are perfect for someone who values indigenous crafts, as these statement serapes promise to inject high-fashion luxe into your everyday wardrobe staples.

Fine Jewellery


Nothing defines a romantic classic quite like those fairytale tropes that have us fantasizing about a happy ending. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and there’s no real happy ending without a big, bold diamond ring and the man of your dreams down on one knee. For all the romantics out there, your spouse may not be ready to propose but getting you the perfect promise present can be a good start. Think delicate pearl drop earrings, emerald rings or a vintage oxidised bracelet as your new promise accessory. Whether you’re a modernist, a floral devotee, or a fan of the ornate, there’s a piece out there with your name on it.

Hand Embroidered Sarees


Let's face it, you can never go wrong with a saree.

We've all been busy hustling and sometimes forget to plan out the perfect present for our partners. For those last-minute gift ideas, consider a stunning hand-embroidered saree. A perfect colour palette of summer brights can be a good start. Try our hand-embroidered sarees that come in a variety of fabrics, ranging from pure silk to Katan, organza, and tissue—all beautifully decorated with Tilla, Soznikari, Badla Zari, and Zardozi. You may be late in planning out the perfect surprise, but there’s nothing more romantic than gifting your partner with this impressive selection.

For him:

Searching for the right gift for your man can be quite the task; however, if he adores little things that feel special and unique, our range of menswear kurta sets and jackets can be a great start to your last-minute gift idea. Our advice? Start with something simple and build it up with chic and statement pieces like a Pashmina shawl or Nehru jacket to help with styling. 

Menswear Kurta Sets


Valentine's Day can be a good time to help your spouse appreciate the beauty of handlooms. Take this as your cue to invest in a handloom gift that is special and meaningful. Gone are those days when the menswear colour palette only comprised two shades of white and ecru for an entire lookbook. Instead, men today opt for brighter hues in creative styles and don't shy away from experimenting with fabrics and colours. With a fusion of traditional and contemporary, our range of kurta sets is ideal for men who love to play around with different styles and textures. Think lightweight raw silk churidar sets in pink, navy blue, grey, and mustard as a simple way to start celebrating handlooms with your soulmate. 

Nehru Jackets

Once you’ve decided on a kurta set, here’s an easy way to elevate your partner’s look by opting for accessories that go well with the handloom kurta set. A simple escape can be a statement Nehru jacket for edgy layering. If your partner has a weakness for luxe fabrics like brocade, Banarasi, or velvet, then check out these tailored pieces for an opulent look. Handcrafted in pure Katan or raw silk, WeaverStory offers a selection of Nehru jackets beautifully hand-embroidered in a floral jaal pattern or sprinkled with indigenous Banarasi motifs. You can either consider neutral shades with minimal embroidery or go all out.

Pashmina shawls


We’re totally smitten by Kashmiri handwork, and nothing spells Kashmir more than a classic Pashmina shawl made from pure wool or cashmere. Each of our pieces is crafted by the finest artisans and adorned with thoughtful detailing for an added dose of luxury and elegance. Considering your partner’s penchant for finishing touches, they can effortlessly layer these timeless shawls with their special Bandhgalas and Kurta sets. The best part? You can always raid your spouse’s wardrobe and style these gender-neutral accessories with your everyday outfits.
