For those of you in relationships, situationships, conditionships, and confusionships, what are you planning to get your lover? They say there are five love languages, and one of them is receiving gifts. So, if you haven’t figured it our yet, we have you covered.

Now, one of the factors to consider when choosing a gift is to know what the recipient likes and dislikes. What’s he/she into? Is he a sport person? Business person? Is she a cosmetics freak or more of a fashionista? Does she dislike the color pink? Being thoughtful is very important.

We have therefore curated 5 gift ideas each for your guy/ lady.

For Guys …

Picking out gifts for guys could be very hard and tricky. But whatever you do, don’t go and buy handkerchief and singlet. Or offer only sex. We left that in 2017.

  1. Leather briefcase

Fashion-forward guy? Perfect gift might be a leather briefcase. It is sophisticated and highly useful especially in holding his laptop, work-papers, documents, chargers, and anything else he needs to carry around.

  1. Shoes

Brogues, shoes, valentine's day gifts

Shoes are the key ingredient in a man’s style. Most people say you can tell a lot about a guy’s personality by the shoes he wears. Oxford shoes, Statement Sneakers, Lace up boots, Mocs. Which one does he love? He’ll forever be happy you got him one.

  1. Travel sized skin care set

Keep his personal hygiene and grooming game strong with a handy travel-size skincare set to satisfy his skin’s need. Inspire him to put his best face forward.

  1. Wristwatch

Just like shoes, accessories say a lot about a man. Some men can’t do without their wristwatch. If he falls into this category, why not get him one? Digital sports watch, designer luxury watch, whichever. Some prefer bracelets or if he’s not a fan of hand accessories, you can get him a neck piece/neck chain. This would definitely bring memories of you anytime he puts it on.

  1. Cufflinks

We all know ladies can be extra and mushy, so …

  1. Roses and Chocolates

Roses – a common, but romantic gift for your girlfriend.

Chocolate – every woman’s best friend; you can never go wrong with a box of chocolate.

These two are the oldest and have become a valentine tradition. No gift says the word “I love you” better than them.

Unisex …
