This Valentine’s Day, gift yourself an heirloom piece as a little self-love token

It’s the week of love, and we’ve scouted out the right gifts to help you pamper yourself.

Valentine’s Day, traditionally associated with romantic relationships, is often seen as a celebration solely for couples. If you’re tired of this extra-cheesy holiday and the brouhaha surrounding it, why not take a moment to celebrate love within yourself? Being single can be your strike of pride the whole year, but just as February hits, you realize it wouldn’t hurt to receive flowers from a newfound lover and maybe a little token of appreciation? This year, we’ve tried our best to look at this famed day of love through an all-new pair of rose-tinted glasses that uplifts and acknowledges self-love in its best form. Retail therapy! What’s better than investing in pieces that have you flaunting your most confident self?

The idea of straying away from the classic red is definitely refreshing, so we go beyond merlot to tell you how to wear white, pastel, or vivid brights that make you feel the most powerful and confident. Think of heirloom pieces like a timeless Banarasi saree that you’d cherish for life or a gossamer Chanderi saree handwoven in pure tissue silk. Whether you fancy high-shine jewellery or a handcrafted pure Pashmina shawl, make sure to give yourself an immersive sartorial experience worth remembering for a lifetime.

Banarasi Sarees for the classic collectors


A saree holds a special place in every woman’s heart, be it the simplicity of a daily-worn cotton saree or a timeless Banarasi hidden in the forgotten corners of your mother’s wardrobe. Our love for the saree transcends time and age, making it a symbol of unwavering confidence and grace. So, why not gift yourself a classic Banarasi as you celebrate this day of self-love and appreciation? The three most important weaving techniques are Kadhwa, Kimkhab, and brocade, with a myriad of motifs to choose from that include shikargah, floral jaal, and various different types of bootas. When it comes to picking the right colour, don’t just go for bright red, green, or yellow; instead, if you like pastels, try mint green, blush pink, or baby blue with motifs that suit your taste and personality. Remember, being confident is your key to being your best version.

Floaty Kurta sets to match your blithe


If you’re planning to lounge in as you cook yourself a dinner for one while watching Eat, Pray, Love, you might as well do it looking fabulous. Our lightweight kurta sets come in beautiful shades of bright pink, aubergine, ivory, and a variety of different shades with beautiful embroidery, perfect for a night in or even a night out. Think Kashmiri tilla and soznikari work or a little Zari detailing from our collections, Mastani and Kashi-Ka. Beautiful and breathable, these comfy partners will be the ideal companion as you whip yourself a cake or curl up on the couch watching your favourite rom-com. 

You can never go wrong with some extra jewellery


Dropping hints to your partner to get you the right jewellery is old and done. It’s 2024, and we’re buying ourselves the jewellery we love. Heart-shape themes may be deemed too corny and cringeworthy, but we prefer to think of them as a classic motif. Instead of going for a small pair of earrings or bracelets, go big and bold. Our Ashna necklace set with Moissanite Polki and semi-precious stones is handcrafted in pure silver and has little heart motifs across the necklace. Thinking of a grand gesture of self-declaration? Take this as your cue to surprise yourself.

While, for others who like to keep things subtle, explore our range of fine jewellery to pick your favourite. 

Gossamer Chanderi Sarees for the romantics


Historically a symbol of royalty, Chanderi sarees hail from a small town in Chander, Madhya Pradesh, and are well-known for their buttery soft texture and luxorious appeal. Laced with a sense of romanticism, this heritage weave has also enjoyed patronage among Bollywood beauties, both on and off-screen. This confluence of craft and fantasy creates the perfect moodboard for someone looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a hint of drama. Think flowy silk Chanderi sarees in vibrant shades of yellow, pink, or red, which will make you feel nothing less than the lead protagonist of your story. The assortment also offers delicate floral motifs or birds handwoven in gold and silver zari for the romantic in you.

Luxe Pashmina shawls 


If you’re too late to decide how you want to celebrate Valentine’s Day, why not pick a last-minute gift to keep you warm on this day that might otherwise feel cold and lonely? A handcrafted Pashmina shawl sourced from the hilly valleys of Kashmir makes for a great sartorial investment for someone looking for breathable, transitional winter accessories that are lightweight and equally comfortable. Try styling these with your regular kurta sets or with your everyday denims for a clean-day look. Swap the denim with a little black dress for the night, add in some gold jewellery, and you’re right on cue for a little date-night meal for one.
