Gifting is not an easy business. The hours that go into strategising over getting the perfect gift for your significant other cannot be measured.
People often say it is the thought that matters but we all know that the thought and the gift need to find a meeting point. This is why it is important that you understand that these gift ideas will not make much of an impact if the person you’re giving the gift to ends up not using them. So put some thought into it, if necessary, add a twist to these ideas we have curated for you and enjoy the smile of pleasure that lights up on the receiver’s face. You’re welcome.
Skin Care Product:
One year supply of skincare products. Or six months. Or three months. What this says is that you pay attention to your significant other’s beauty regimen and love what they use.
A painting/sculpture for the art-loving partner. If you can afford it, you can commission their favourite local artist to do something special for them. If not, there are several galleries where affordable items are sold.
An unlimited gift card to a local bookshop for the book-loving bae. You don’t want to set a book lover loose in a bookshop with an unlimited card. A gift card within your means will do. Book lovers are the easiest people to buy gifts for.
A mug with their favourite book quote. You can have a new wallpaper with their favourite book passages put up in their/your apartment or the ultimate, an autographed copy of a book by their favourite author.
A trip to the restaurant or home delivery:
For the foodie, organising a private food tasting event for them will be pure heaven. You don’t have to prepare the meals yourself. Just have small dishes set beautifully (presentation matters) and voila!
Childhood gift items:
The child at heart will scream for joy at cartoon themed gifts. Silly, but have you met fans of minions, Dora the explorer, The Lion King, or Frozen? They exist. Items personalised with a favourite cartoon theme will drive them crazy.
Travel kit for the Nomad:
What do you think the travel-lover will enjoy? If they’re planning a trip, you can get them a new travel bag. Especially those ones that are all-purpose and have one million pockets for stowing away stuff. You can also do a montage or collage with pictures from all the places they have visited/want to visit and let it roll while you treat them to a destination-themed dinner right there in your living room.
The secret really is knowing what your partner loves and finding a way to incorporate it into a gift. These ideas are not exhaustive but you get the pattern. Now go ahead and flourish this Valentine.
