I’m not really one of those people that get hyped up about Valentines Day but since getting married, it’s nice to find an excuse to spend quality time together and of course, any excuse to receive a lovely present is acceptable in my book. This year though, we decided to skip on the gifts and plan to have dinner at our favorite restaurant.
But I know how special it is to receive a special something from your significant other so I thought I’d put together my Valentines gift picks. Send a hint to your V-day date by forwarding him this gift guide. I’ve got a range of gift items from beauty must-haves to cute underpinning that you’d love. There’s only a week away from Valentines so get forwarding.
ONE.Dytique Rosaviola Candle,QR250 (Located at The Pearl): Scented home candles are a fail-safe gift option as long as the scent is not overpowering or sickening like cinnamon. Chose a romantic and sensual scent like this Rosaviola scent.
TWO. Swarovski Bangle, QR440 (Located at Landmark and Villaggio): Bling is always a good idea. If high-end jewelers are not within reach, Swarovski makes elegant and gorgeous jewelry that are affordable and would stand the test of time. This bangle is sweet yet modern enough to stack on your arm and wear everyday.
THREE. Oysho Floral Jumpsuit, QR195 (Located at Landmark, Villaggio) : Skip the sexy underwear because to be honest, it’s not something ladies wear on a regular basis unless it’s a special occasion. This jumpsuit though is a great sleepwear alternative that is both sexy and cute.
FOUR. Michael Kors Bradshaw Watch, QR950 (Located at Lagoona Mall): This Michael Kors watch is a splurge item but it looks similar to a high-end watch without the hefty price tag. A rose gold option is a great alternative to the classic gold or stainless steel.
FIVE. L’occitane Cherry Blossom Gift Set, QR567 (Located at Landmark, Villaggio, Gulf Mall): I personally love a good indulgent bath and body products for Valentines Day as it’s something that wouldn’t typically pick this up for myself. The cherry blossom collection from L’occitane is sumptuous and smells dreamy.
SIX. Ted Baker Cross Body Bag, QR420 (Located at Lagoona Mall): Gifting a fashion item such as clothes is always a bit risky unless you know your significant other’s taste, brand preference and size. Handbags and accessories are the way to go. Every woman appreciates a good cross body bag like this Ted Baker number.
SEVEN. Dior Poison Girl, QR466 (Available at Sephora Landmark, Villaggio, Gulf Mall): Some men go straight to selecting perfume as a gift. If this is the case, the new Dior Poison Girl fits the bill. It has a sweet floral smell with a touch of spice with tonka bean and sandalwood.
EIGHT. Aquazurra Sandals, QR2415 (Available at Per Lei Couture, The Pearl): Saving the splurge for last, sexy heels particularly Aquazurra will win over any girl’s heart. They are one of the most comfortable brand of shoes out there and this sandals is no exception. It’s sexy, fashionable, comfortable and hot!
NINE. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, QR197 (Available at Sephora Landmark, Villaggio, Gulf Mall): Every beauty lover I know owns an Urban Decay Naked palette as it’s everything you need in one case. The Naked 3 palette includes rose gold and copper shades that suit any skin tone.
