February has arrived! With all the flurry of excitement about Valentine’s Day, you find yourself racking your brain (again…) for a Valentine’s day gift idea (should be different from the last birthday gift!) for your sweetheart! Valentine’s Day is almost synonymous with heart-shaped balloons, red roses and chocolate boxes. While some love to go the conventional way to woo their sweetheart, many think of these gifts as a dreaded cliché! How about some out-of-the-box thinking this time to surprise your love?! Here are a few great gift ideas for him and her, to help you express your love this V-day. P.S: They work well any time of the year!
1. Grooming Kit
You know this could be a great gift especially if your lady love often asks you, “How do I look?” This is a great gifting idea for all those ladies and men who always want to put their best ‘face’ forward and are particular about always staying well-groomed. For men you’ll find a wide range of gift sets with shaving cream, after shave lotion, hair wax and a perfume. There’s a lot of cool stuff out there for your bearded man too! For ladies, prettily packed gift sets with soaps, face cleansers, and body lotions do just great!
2. Desktop Plant
Always complain about your better half spending too much time at work? Gift him or her low-maintenance, artificial desktop plants along with a hand-written love note. It could be a nice reminder of you, when he or she is at work. Moreover, people often like to brighten up their workspace a bit, but don’t really invest much time thinking about doing up their work-desk. Getting them something for their work-desk is a sweet way of showing someone that you care about making their surrounding a happier place for them.
There’s a sophisticated sensual undertone associated with wine. A beautifully packaged wine bottle teamed up to make a hamper, with the right sweets and savories to go along with it can set a perfect mood for the evening. Your favorite wine-lover will surely give you some credit for having a good taste in gifting!
4. Customized Photo Prints
There are countless memories you’ve made with your darling, and probably a few hundred photographs captured in your phone or hard disk. Many, you have even forgotten about. What better way to rekindle your love and show that you value your time spent together, than getting a print of your photos together and immortalizing it in a personalized photo frame! artOreal can help you with a wide range of frames and printing media for your precious pics.
5. Spa Vouchers
You and your sweetie have been working hard for your future and rarely get to spend some ‘me-time’? Make an offer your loved one can’t resist! Gift them a massage service rendered by a professional masseuse. Spas always have tempting packages to completely de-stress you. You could also opt for a couple massage package.
6. Reed Diffusers
People who are often complimented for their aesthetic sense, are one’s who appreciate the finer things in life. The have an eye for beauty, and are also sensitive to textures and smells around them. If your spouse falls in this category, a reed diffuser could be a lovely Valentine’s Day gift, they are sure to cherish. They are non-messy, eco-friendly and long-lasting room fragrances, which often come in neat ceramic or glass pots.
If you’ve fallen head over heels in love with a dancing queen or that cute music buff, supercool headphones are a gift that’ll make their Valentine’s Day even more special. There’s a wide variety of headphones available in the market, like in-ear, over-ear, wired and Bluetooth ones.
Another unconventional Valentine’s Day gift your sporty sweetheart will flip over, are an awesome pair of sneakers. A great way of showing them you appreciate their zest for fitness!
9. Board Games
It was a random conversation, in which you realized that the one who’s captured your heart, is actually a kid trapped in the body of a grown-up! If this is true for you, celebrate the child in them by gifting them fun board games like Scrabble, Boggle, Monopoly or card games which you both can play. A sure way to spend some light-hearted, quality time together.
Fallen for a nerdy-birdie? A nice, romantic novel or a newly released book of any other genre of your bookworm’s choice can make a Valentine’s Day gift they will hold dear. Book-lovers never tire of building their collection and with the help of few reviews online, you can easily select a good read for them.
No day should pass by, without you reminding that special someone in your life of how much their happiness means to you. Valentine’s Day is just an innocent reason to celebrate; an opportunity to go a little overboard to express your love! Make sure to make the most of it!
