It’s officially winter here in Roanoke, but February 14th is guaranteed to cure the worst winter blues. In 2018, “Virginia Is Still For Lovers,” and the trademarked heart logo remains an iconic symbol of our state. For those of us who appreciate cars and romance, Valentine’s Day is the ultimate celebration of both. At Berglund Luxury Roanoke, it’s also one of our favorites. Here are some unique and romantic ways in which you can celebrate Saint Valentine this year.
Red is for Romance & Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.
Red has always symbolized passion, sensuality, and romance. Thus, it’s no surprise that the color dominates on Valentine’s Day.
For radiance and beauty, red diamonds are unmatched. These jewels are the world’s rarest and most exclusive gems, perfect for the woman who appreciates luxury. Some of the most famous red diamonds include the Moussaieff Red, Hancock Red, and Argyle Everglow.
His & Hers Getaway
A romantic Valentine’s weekend getaway is a cherished experience.
To begin your trip in style, surprise your sweetheart with plans, packed luggage, and a luxury car accessory to keep you on schedule. If you’re banking on an outdoors adventure, try Land Rover’s Heritage Trunk. For an idyllic B&B vaca, the AMG weekend bag may just fit your needs. We can order any of your preferred Valentine’s vacation car accessories at our Roanoke dealerships, so just ask!
Exquisite Grandeur, Pint-Sized Version
Is your Valentine a fan of the iconic Jaguar E-TYPE from the 1960s? Once dubbed the most beautiful car in the world by Enzo Ferrari, the E-TYPE was the pride of the Jaguar world in its heyday.
Today, it’s memorialized for its unrivaled excellence by Amalgam, a company that produces the most iconic cars in miniature form. Check out Amalgam’s miniature Jaguar E-Type LWE “Car Zero” and Jaguar E-type Series 1 – 3.8 Coupé, both custom-built to be admired and savored for life.
Luckily for Jaguar shoppers, the E-TYPE made its return in 2017 as the E-TYPE Zero, Jaguar’s first all-electric automobile. Ask our Roanoke luxury car dealers for more information if your hubby is in the market for one of the world’s finest vehicles.

Land Rover & Zenith: An Alliance Made in Heaven
When Land Rover and Zenith came together, the result was artistry and rugged individualism personified. In 1972, Colonel John Blashford-Snell, the British explorer, crossed the formidable Darien Gap as part of a dangerous Trans America expedition. His vehicle of choice was the Range Rover, and his chosen timepiece: the Zenith El Primero.
In 2016, Land Rover and Zenith launched the iconic Zenith El Primero Range Rover watch. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that Land Rover enthusiast in your life, look no further. The watch’s reductive design mirrors the rugged, minimalist look of the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (above picture), which remains one of our favorite models at Berglund Luxury Roanoke.
On His Majesty’s Secret Service
If the man in your life is a fan of James Bond and fast cars, you’re in luck. Check out Tom Ford’s designer cylinder cufflinks, Henry Vintage Wayfarer FT0248 sunglasses, and mother-of-pearl cufflinks—all worn by James Bond (Daniel Craig) in Spectre and Skyfall. Browse the site for more James Bond paraphernalia.
Match James Bond-style menswear and accessories with noted cars from the movies, like the Range Rover Sport, Mercedes S300, Land Rover Defender Double Cab, and Jaguar XJ L. Ask your nearest Berglund Luxury dealer for details.
Chocolates: The Language of Love
These decadent candies are the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts today. To spoil that special lady, pamper her with chocolates adorned with 24-karat edible gold from Delafee of Switzerland, or allow her chocoholic to come out with truffles from Knipschildt Chocolatier. The La Madeline au Truffle, is the world’s most expensive chocolate, consisting of a French Périgord truffle encased in a decadent Valrhona dark chocolate ganache and lavishly dusted with fine cocoa powder.
New or Used Luxury Dream Car
Ian Callum, Jaguar’s design director, once said that “Jaguar cars are about great proportions, fantastic silhouettes…the optimum expression of metal.” No truer words have ever been spoken.
