Silk scarves for a special Valentine

Although technically speaking February is still supposed to be summer in Australia - in fact historically it is often the hottest month of the year - unfortunately many parts of the country have been suffering from much wetter and colder conditions than expected.

And with only five days remaining until Valentine's Day, your time to purchase special gifts to surprise your loved one is fast running out.

So why not combine these factors and give a businesswoman in your life something thoughtful, yet practical - such as a silk twist scarf?

These fashion items are light and soft, making them ideal to wear all year round.

With a wide range of colours to choose from, you should be able to pick out the perfect personalised gift that she can wear both on the way to the office on a cold morning and out to social drinks of an evening.

Alternatively, if you think she would prefer something brighter and more colourful, there are plenty of vibrant scarves on the market that reflect your partner's sunny personality.
