Don't be stuck for a gift idea this Valentine's Day. Make Kildare Village your one-stop shop for all your gifting and date night needs... or treat yourself!
Swarovskis on stars and heart prints on dresses, bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of our favourite things.
We're past the hinting stage this Valentine's Day and are heading straight to Kildare Village to treat ourselves to some special designer gifts for less.
From designer threads, to sunglasses and handbags, new throws for the sofa and sparkly jewellery, Ireland's largest luxury shopping destination has it all.
And if that wasn't enough, Kildare Village is holding a special Valentine's date night treat at the fabulous Dunne & Crescenzi. The tasty Italian is offering three romantic courses for just €32, with a Prosecco cocktail.
We may even stretch to picking up a few gifts for the other half while we're there. After all, it is Valentine's...
These are some of the date night outfits we have our eye on at the Village...
Emporio Armani dress, WAS €280, NOW €182
Love is definitely in the air with this heart-print smock dress. We love the length – perfect for tights and boots for this colder weather and also ideal if you want to ditch the tights and add a strappy heel when spring eventually arrives.
Wolford Estella leggings, WAS €250, NOW €162
A wardrobe staple, you can rock these leather-look leggings for any occasion. Perfect for date night with a pair of killer boots and a sequin top. You can also add a blazer and a trainer for a more low-key look.
Mulberry Christy studded boots, WAS €760, NOW €380
Race you to the Village for this absolute bargain. These Mulberry ankle boots will see you right through winter and into spring with a little style change up. Heel height = dance-floor ready!
Mulberry Mini Seaton Silky Calf, WAS €1195, NOW €837
Be still our beating Mulberry heart. This mini is just what we need to add a certain je ne sais quoi to a date-night outfit. We're dreaming of it paired over a black blazer, those Wolford leather-look leggings and a pair of crisp white trainers.
Polo Ralph Lauren Anstey camera bag, WAS €189, NOW €129.99
If you weren't quick enough off the mark to nab the Mulberry mini, don't worry, Kildare Village is a treasure trove of designer handbags for less. This Ralph Lauren camera bag is so Instagrammable you'll be wearing it out of the store.
Swarovski star drop earrings, WAS €129, NOW €38
When Marilyn Monroe sang about diamonds being a girl's best friend, she obviously never caught a glimpse of these Swarovski crystal earrings. These would make the ultimate Valentine's gift, or birthday, or Mother's Day, or Christmas, or anniversary...
Polo Ralph Lauren solid custom fit mesh polo shirt, WAS €95, NOW €64.99
A classic polo shirt never goes out of style, and this navy number is ideal for a date night where he's heading from boardroom to bar. There are major savings on Ralph Lauren for men, women and children at Kildare Village.

A practical but stylish gift for the outdoorsy man in your life. BOSS has any amount of great jackets, that are waterproof, warm and will last a lifetime.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels black 5pm manicure set, WAS €269, NOW €134.50
Even marathon runners need to tend to their nails! This nifty little set will fit in a toiletry bag and is perfect for travelling, and the scissors can double up as a beard and moustache trimmer for when he's on-the-go.
