Its All in the Eyes: New Trend + Valentines Gift Guide

Golden Eye Mirror £19.95, Graham and Green

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the shops and the internet are guaranteed to abound with heart shaped objects – but at the risk of sounding a little lewd I think other body parts are often overlooked as poetic and poignant reminders of love… I’m talking about the eyes… They are the gateway into the soul, commonly associated with intelligence, light, vigilance, moral conscience and truth. Besides, looking someone straight in the eyes is a western custom of honesty – look a little longer and it’s something more – how much more sensual can you get? Take a hike you fickle hearts  – it’s all about the eyes for me this Valentines season – and also it doesn’t hurt that it’s a major home trend…
