The essence of Valentine’s Day is ‘love’ but it also gives a nice excuse to make loved ones experience something special. Valentine’s Day gifts can range from flowers to cakes and candle light dinners. Those who receive a Valentine’s Day gift always agree that it’s a great feeling to be cared for and remembered on this special day.
However, most of the time Valentine shoppers agree that it’s a difficult job shopping for girlfriends, boyfriends, beau, besties, mother or anyone else. Only a nice wrapping paper never does the trick; one must choose Valentine’s Day gifts very carefully to turn on the magical feeling.
Indians are known for their great adaptability and openness in integrating global celebrations into their lives. Valentine’s Day is now a mega celebration in the country, especially among the younger generation. Sweet, thoughtful gifts helping to document love stories are designed by online gift stores every year but that does not mean the good old red rose bouquet and the chocolate box loses its charm. A heart shape red rose bouquet still occupies the top position on any lover’s gift list.
Valentine’s Day gifts for men
Finding the ideal Valentine’s Day gift for men is not a simple feat. At times it may be a ‘mission’. However, there are few things which guys actually want as a gift.
1. Smart pair of goggles
It’s a time-tested truth that a pair of smart sun shades can woo a man. Choosing a branded accessory is always wiser or else it may just land up in the storage box.
2. Manly perfume
Remember floral scents are not for men. While choosing a deodorant or a perfume one must be careful. Woody, musky, rugged is the ultimate man scent gift to pick.
3. Bath and body basket
Everyone enjoys body bliss, be it man or a woman. A gift basket with body wash, soap, shampoo, a fancy soap case can be one of the most impressive gifts.
4. Box full of nuts
Want to be innovative? A fabulous gift will be to send across a jar box full of nuts. Make it mixed nuts like cashew, pistachio, walnuts or stuff it with the guy’s favorite nuts; the simple message is ‘I’m nuts about you’.
Valentine’s Day gifts for women
Breaking away from the traditional gifts is so much more enjoyable. Firstly there is an element of surprise and keeping women guessing is always fun. It’s time to list out some fascinating avant-garde gifts for women
