Valentine's Day is a special occasion for many people, and it's natural to want to show your significant other how much you care by giving them a gift.
However, it can be easy to fall into the trap of giving cliched or unoriginal gifts that don't truly reflect your feelings. To avoid this, here are a few gift ideas to avoid:
Flowers and chocolates - while these gifts may be traditional and romantic, they can also be seen as generic and uninspired.
Jewellery - unless you know your partner's specific taste in jewelry, it's best to avoid this gift as it can be expensive and may not be something they would want to wear.
Teddy bears - while cute, teddy bears can also be seen as cliched and cheesy. Plus who's got the space for a really adorable Steiff Bear?!
Overpriced Dinners with the pressure to have a good time
Expensive & Ostentatious Gifts - while they can be Instagram-worthy, they may not really be the memories you are looking to create.
Instead of these over-used gifting ideas, consider something more thoughtful and personal that reflects your relationship. Some ideas you could explore are:
- A home cooked meal you both like to make or a cooking or cocktail making class you both enjoy... like the one offered by Nomad's Tent
- Personalised gifts like a photo album or a framed picture or a Personalised Letter Lamp from Caidra by Rubyxx Gifting
- A weekend getaway or a trip to somewhere close - Scoot has some great offers at the moment.
- If you both like a good laugh, look for quirky gifts that will create moments of laughter and connection. For eg. consider replacing the classic floral bouquet with Caidra's Tulip Soap Bouquet Set
- Thoughtful gifts that helps you to explore your relationship - like the As We Grow: A Modern Memory Book or the Couple's Date Passport or the Let's Get Closer card games available on Caidra by Rubyxx Gifting
Ultimately, the most important thing is to show your partner that you put thought and effort into the gift, and that it truly reflects your feelings for them.
