All I could think of while creating this gift guide was: “what would I want my boyfriend to get me this year?”
I’m sure you all agree with me that Valentine’s Day feels a little different this year. Restaurants are closed, and we face yet another night in. But I think that the fact were all under semi-lockdown for the past year or so, makes those little V-day present even more special. Also, it’s always cool to have something to look forward to!
Weather you agree or disagree with this idea of having one day every year to mark our love and affection for our loved ones, society sets the tone and we follow. I say, let’s follow but make it our own. Iv’e listed cute ideas to do as a couple, or with friends, as well as le famous “gift guide”.
As per Valentine’s Day “stay-home” Activities. I would suggest the following:
- Plan an indoor picnic
- Take Away from your favourite fancy restaurant
- Cocktails party for 2! Stock up on your favourites Booz, a shaker and the needed ingredients. I VOTE “EASTERN STANDARD”.
- Map up your future VACAY!
- Board games/Puzzle marathone!
Ok, activities-check! I personally don’t plan on doing anything rather than having a nice dinner. (just an FYI)
Let’s go though gifts you could potentially get. Since this year is all about “Self-care”& “Feeling good” I focused on gems that will boots up out energy, and make us feel good! I felt like my mission was finding gift with a use and value. Something we’ll actually use, something that will improve the way we feel inside out.
For Her (AKA, for you!)
SKIN-CARE, HAIR ROUTINE, SCENTED CANDLES AND LIP BALM TO FEEL THAT EXTRA FEMININITY. THESE PRODUCTS ARE TO GIVE AN IDEA!
For those of you who like to take that extra mile on Valentines day, and maybe expect for a little bit more for your partner. Not sure of my boyfriend is reading this but, I have also put together a few luxury items I wouldn’t mind getting. (haha)
A GIRL CAN DREAM …..X
If you’re a bit lost on what could you buy for your boyfriend this valentines, or if you’re wondering whether you’re even supposed to, just know that you are not alone. It’s not easy to shop for a guy and let’s face it, most guys are pretty chilled when it comes to receiving a gifT. It’s when they have to give one, that’s where things become complicated..
WERE PLAYING IT SAFE AND THINK “QUALITY OVER QUANTITY”
You don’t wanna go too crazy, but it’s good if you could find something that is thoughtful and personal. Here’s some general idea’s such as a wallet, a notebook, a candle, a book etc…
Happy Valentines Day guys!
