Valentine’s Day gifts are the trickiest, because every relationship is different. If yours is still in the flowers-and-chocolate stage, the choice is slightly easier. But if you’re in a committed relationship, gift-giving is a delicate matter of straddling that fine line between practical and romantic. Here’s the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that checks both boxes: the Parachute Classic Robe.
We’ve called the Parachute Classic Robe “the last robe you’ll ever need,” and for good reason: it’s soft and supple, yet durable and well-made. It makes a great Valentine’s Day gift not just because it’s unisex—anyone can wear it, and everyone will love it. And it’s not the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because it’s both practical and romantic. You can wear it because you’re cold, just out of the shower, or over your pajamas.
No, the Parachute Classic Bathrobe ($99 at parachutehome.com) is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because no matter the reason, every time your love throws it over his or her shoulders they will think of you. Inevitably. And, you’re as close to them as you can possibly be—even if you’re not there.
Loomed from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton at 450 grams per square meter, this robe is perfectly weighted for year-round use. Made in Turkey, it features two deep front pockets and a shawl collar. It comes in three shades: white, stone (grey), and mineral (a subtle white/blue, below). And like all of Parachute’s products, the Classic Robe is certified chemical free.
While Parachute is renowned for its fantastic bedding, it also makes awesome bath towels that are fluffier and more absorbent than what you’ll find in some five-star hotels. That’s because they’re also crafted from Turkish cotton sourced from the Aegean region. The material is spun with Aerocotton technology—a fancy way of saying that air can pass through the fibers faster than other towels, so Parachute bath towels dry faster than others made from the same cloth. You can nab as many or as few as you want, but Parachute’s Starter Bathroom Bundle ($229; get it here) also makes a great Valentine’s Day gift.
