Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

February 9, 2015

Hey Hey Hey,

How are you all doing? I am sure pretty good as this is an exciting week with all those crazy days around the corner – chocolate, teddy, promise, hug etc day and not to forget the day of Love – The Valentine’s day. Do you have any plans for the day ? Do you have a valentine or do you intend to make use of this very special day? Lot of questions in a go right?  *blum* But if your answer to any of these questions is YES , then this post might just help you because I am going to share with you some ideas on what you can gift to your special one  *kiss*




For Her:


Let us begin with the girls first . Choosing a gift for your girl should not be a big problem as there are tonnes of things available in the market for them. Also, girls pretty much like everything gifted with love. Right.. Am I? But here are a few suggestions that can never go wrong when you are in a doubt.


a) Assemble her favorites

Yes , This works great. I am sure you know a little about your ‘Only one’ and can manage to gather a few items of her choice. To give you an idea, you can get a basket and put some chocolates, pictures of you guys, a small note, some chunky accessories, a lip gloss or any of her favorite beauty item,  and a main gift item-say a cute dress or a bag or a perfume. Wrap it up in a glossy paper with a ribbon and present it. I can assure you she is going to love it as the effort you have put in this gift would show.

b) Love Message

Every girl loves the attention from her guy and what else could be better then letting her know how you feel about her? So boy, Just put your phone into action and record a message for her as an audio or a video. You could also make a video of the pictures and some romantic song using a simple software like windows movie maker. If this seems too much pen down your feelings on a piece of paper..Umm !  I  would rather suggest you to get a colorful sheet from the stationery in case you plan to write. Share it with your girl on the day and see her fall in love with you again.

c) Flowers

The no-fail and full proof gift has to be flowers. There is no girl on this planet who doesn’t like flowers.. or if there is..you can try cactus *pardon*  Kidding..Don’t ever do that ..Hahaha .. So just send your girl a bouquet of her favorite flowers with a cute card. I personally feel ,girls like to be reminded again and again, what importance they have in your life. A card and flowers is the best way to show your love.

d) Take her out

Who doesn’t like to spend an entire day with their love doing what they love.. Confused.. Well in simple words , take her to her favorite place, get her a pampering session or go for a long drive. Just be with her.

e) Make a StoryBoard

Now this one is pretty interesting and needs your hard work. The idea is to make a board which has your story on it. To make this all you need is a cardboard, some pictures of you two and some tiny-winy notes. Cut the pictures in different shapes, make some hearts and stars of glittery/handmade papers and paste them on the board randomly. Pin the notes here and there in the spaces between. Its all about how creative you can be. At the end you are going to have a master piece.

f) Jewelry

‘Diamonds are girl’s best friend’ – I am so sure whoever said this was a girl. LOL. Women love jewelry no matter what. A ring or a heart locket necklace is a great gift when you can  afford spending some extra pennies.

g) Cook for her

If a man can cook for me, he can win me over any day. This probably could be the best gift my man can give me. If your girl is a foodie like me, trust me you can get all her attention by just cooking a meal . And I am serious  laugh




For Him:


I don’t know how many of you are going to agree with me.. but I feel its very difficult to choose a gift for a man. One because they don’t have interest in half the things that exist in the world and Two because there are not many options available for them when compared to girls. A big LOl but that’s the fact *blum*  So these are the ideas suggested by my male friends when I asked them what gift on valentine’s day could make them happy. And who knows if one of these might just work for you as well.


a) His favorite gadget

The safest BET. After all which guy doesn’t love a really awesome gadget? So go get him his favorite , it could be an ipad or a mobile phone or a pair of earphones or a hard disk may be. A cutting edge technology gizmo is sure to grab your man’s attention.

b) Sports/Handmade Tee

If he is into sports, which is not so rare thing, why not get him a sports jersey ? Of his favorite player? O yes ..They find it cool. If not this, Just get a plain T-shirt of his size and get it printed with his favorite quote or sports team name or anything that he would love to see. If you can not get it printed, Just paint it yourself.

c) Take him out for a movie

Be the host of the day and plan a movie you wanna watch with him. Make sure when you decide for the movie, it is of his taste. You could also take it further to a nice candle dinner.

d) Wrist Watch

Nothing can go wrong with a wrist watch. Everybody loves wearing it and nobody minds adding one more to an already existing collection 😉 You can get a sports watch if your man prefers a more casual look to it. If not you can go for a watch with leather strap or chain.

e) A love note

Cheesy it may sound..but guys like to read love notes too. I have seen my friends going all senti over the hand written notes. Trust me! If you still think it wont work, I will say – just try it once  laugh Write down some funny facts about your relationship and things that matter to you . You could also write your conversations or put pictures. But be sure it is not too lengthy as not all men are very patient.

f) Get Inked

Is tattoo your thing.. or maybe his ? If you can get a tattoo done.. Then think no more and go for it. Get something which depicts your love – on the finger or arm or neck. This reminds me of Deepika Padukone. HaHa. If permanent is not your thing.. you can go for a temporary one!

g) Cook his favorite dish

Have you heard this “Insaan ke Dil ka rasta , uske paet se hoke jata hai” . This holds true. Try it 😉




Hope you enjoyed the post and got some ideas for the Valentine’s day. Will see you soon  *kiss* 

Love smile
