FashionBeans x Ted Baker Valentine's Day Gift Guide
Shopping. We men like it now. Heck, we’re even good at it. But buying for your other half on Valentine’s Day? Well that’s a whole different kettle of fishnets.

Of course, if you’re planning on popping the question, the choice of what to buy is somewhat guided in the direction of the jewellery counter. If not, you’re going to have to think outside that little box.

Helpfully, we’ve teamed up with Ted Baker (the one man who knows exactly what women want) to pull together an edit of the best fail-safe options. So no last minute dash to the garage this year.
KRISTAL Opulent Oriental Leather Cross Body Bag
An LBD (that’s ‘little black dress’ in girl speak) is every female’s favourite. If the idea of buying a dress brings you out in panic-induced hives, an LBB - little black bag - is a foolproof backup.
