Be Mine: Montblanc’s Sweetest Gifts for Valentine’s Day

Be Mine: Montblanc’s Sweetest Gifts for Valentine’s Day

Love is all around this month, and these fine leather goods, pens, and, of course, watches from Montblanc are a great way to express your adoration.

By Rhonda Riche

No offense to roses and chocolates, but this February, we want to express our admiration for our favorite humans with presents that say “I Love You” every day of the year, not just on the 14th. That is because, whether it’s a heartfelt compliment (did we mention that you look great today?) or a well-thought-out, heirloom-worthy wristwatch, giving your loved ones meaningful presents is worth the investment.

Thus, as one of the world’s most recognizable and prestigious purveyors of luxury goods, we knew that Montblanc would have an incredible range of objects of affection. Here’s our gift guide to the brand’s most heartfelt offerings.

Paris Match

Paris, France, is one of the most romantic cities in the world, so what better way to capture the passion of the City of Light than with a watch that shares Paris’ passion for style? Meet, the Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Monopusher Chronograph Limited Edition.

Housed in a 43mm DLC-coated stainless steel case, the Montblanc Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Limited Edition is available in black and limited to 500 pieces. Moreover, this handsome timepiece features many details that reference the brand’s historical connections to Paris, including a nod to the chronograph validated by the Académie des Sciences in Paris in 1821.

The Clou de Paris motif on the dial carries over to the patterns on the oscillating weight and the fabric strap. This motif originates from the geometric design of Paris’s cobbled streets and is the link from the past to the future of this timepiece.

The Moon & Stars

To make your beloved’s heart skip a beat this Valentine’s Day, we recommend the stainless steel Montblanc Bohème Day & Night 34mm.

Almost poetical in its design, this watch’s dream-like dial features fluffy-looking mother-of-pearl clouds outlined with rose gold, a crescent-shaped window displaying day or night through different gradients of blue enhanced with rays of light, and rose gold-coated diamond indices. Plus, for lovers of mechanical movements, the watch is powered by an automatic movement that is visible through a sapphire caseback.

Love Letters

Three-time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali will always be known as a lover and a fighter, but also a man of famous words. That is because his legendary status comes from not just boxing prowess but also from his civil rights activism, making him one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.

In the ring, Ali was well-known for his playful, rhyming trash talk. On the public stage, his advocacy for African American rights and against the Vietnam War inspired social activism. What better way to write down your feelings for the person you consider the greatest than Montblanc’s Great Characters Muhammad Ali Special Edition Fountain Pen?

Crafted from Montblanc’s durable precious black resin, this fountain pen features many details that pay homage to Ali’s athletic accomplishments.

For instance, the barrel resembles the tape boxers use to wrap their hands, while the cap shares the shape of a punching bag, and its clip is shaped like a championship belt with “Ali” inscribed on it.

The cap is also inscribed with one of Ali’s most famous quotes – “I Shook Up The World!” – as well as a butterfly to represent his fighting style of “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”

Flights of Fancy

If your first love is travel, Montblanc’s #MY4810 Cabin Compact Trolley will never break your heart.

Built from strong polycarbonate with black leather trim, this 35 x 55 x 21cm user-friendly luggage comes in four colorways – Ottanio, British green, blue, and black – both of which are very attractive.

Even better, the #MY4810 Cabin Compact Trolley is also in it for the long-term because, with its sturdy four wheels, multi-length bar, and smart organization system with several compartments, this light and compact carry-on will follow you or your dearest to the ends of the earth.

Ticket To Paradise

For those long-distance relationships, may we suggest the gift of a Montblanc Soft Passport Holder?

This supple leather passport holder is a stylish travel companion. Plus, its envelope shape suggests a love letter. For added functionality, there’s an open pocket for small items.

Emotional Baggage

Love shouldn’t be hard. It should be soft, like Montblanc’s luxurious leather collection. Luckily, the brand’s Soft 24/7 Bag puts the work into its relationship with craftsmanship.

Available in either black or dusty gray, Montblanc’s Soft 24/7 Bag is crafted from a new, softer leather yet still manages to incorporate innovative constructions such as external pockets. So, if your partner’s love language is the excellent, multi-functional design, this bag’s distinctive stitching, multiple zip pockets, and finely detailed handles tick all those boxes.

Pillow Talk

Created by internationally renowned acoustics experts, the Montblanc MTB 03 In-Ear Headphones are a great gift for yourself or your best bud. After all, who needs someone whispering sweet nothings in your ear when you can have clear and substantial audio instead?

Providing excellent sound quality and effective noise cancellation wherever you go, the MTB 03’s design promises ultimate comfort; plus, they come with a cute pocket-sized charging case, so these headphones are ready to run away with you at a moment’s notice.
