A vintage piece
For those of us who have a partner with a penchant for eras gone by, gifting them with a vintage or antique piece of homeware could see you having a few days off the washing up. There is something incredibly personal about buying vintage. Furthermore, items are also often a one-off or very rare. Classic vintage pieces are a passion of most interior design lovers who echo past periods in their own home style.
If you’re really wanting to push the boat out this February 14th, why not purchase a vintage engagement ring? No pressure!
