Minimal Valentine’s Day Gifts

I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s day: if you’re single it’s just a horrible day when the all world seems to remind you about it (I’ve been there so many times), but also as a couple I don’t think you need a special day to celebrate love….

That said, a part of me still loves and hopes to receive a little gift, something minimal that maybe makes you remember a special moment you spent together.
So here’s my minimal Valentine’s day Gift List:

“Milano – Storia di una rinascita is a beautiful book with black and white photos from 1943 -1953: a reportage from the destruction caused by the II World War, to the rebirth of the City. It’s the catalog of the exhibition at Palazzo Morando (Via Sant’Andrea, 6 – 20123 Milano). Highly recommended if you’re around!!!

The cashmere blanket is gonna be perfect for the cold winter London days, while the Menu Salt and Pepper grinder have been on my wish list for a long long time, I think they will be a nice addition to my kitchen.
