It’s almost Valentine’s Day. After months and months of lockdown, maybe you’re feeling closer to a loved one and want to give them a special gift, even though celebrating the holiday looks different this year. This Vogue.com gift guide is here to help you realize that fantasy. You may not be able to frolic along rolling hills, fresh green grass, and the sound of chirping birds as our models have, but the best Valentine’s Day gifts can make you feel one step closer.
The series was captured by Chris Maggio, the New York-based photographer who has a knack for photographing surreal and eerie moments in the everyday, and styled by Vogue’s Alexandra Gurvich who focused on the best Valentine’s Day gifts that you’ll love so much, you’ll want to buy them for yourself as well. The set design is by Jesse Kaufman, who constructed a scene akin to a heavenly utopia, while fresh faces came courtesy of makeup artist Asami Matsuda, and the buoyant hair by Shin Arima. Even better? Everything is photographed on real-life couple Eloisa Santos and Willow Barret. Go on, add something to your shopping bag and transport yourself somewhere sweet and special.
