I can’t believe Valentine is almost around the corner. I remember, in the past, I use to wonder what to get for the male gender so when I try to get gifts for my dad or brothers, I tend to go for the regular T-shirts or Shirts, Underwears- mainly clothing gifts.
I soon realise I wasn’t the only one who struggles with getting gifts for people. So since I’ve become somewhat a pro at getting gifts, I thought it would be nice to talk you through some gift ideas you could get your other half, mum, dad, brother, sister or friend this Valentine so here are a list of gift items I have written down that could appeal to both gender regardless of age.
Perfume: Who doesn’t love a good smell? No one could ever go wrong with a nice smell. I have got so many collections of perfume in my closet, you might think I’m vain:). Over time, I have learnt how to store my favourite perfumes to keep them smelling nice for a very long time. My go-to perfumes are eau de perfume as I believe they last longer in terms of smell as compared to eau de toilette.
Makeup Kit/ Make up Brushes: A lady likes to look good. So you could get this kit for your mum, wife or girlfriend. Just make sure you go for the right complexion. If you aren’t able to afford a kit, get her either a foundation, powder, brush set or a lipstick. My go-to lipstick will be the ‘matte lipstick’. You can’t go wrong with it and it stays longer and sexier on your woman’s lips. However please do not buy one lipstick as a gift, switch it up with something else i.e some of the items already listed.
Dress or T-Shirt: Both for ladies and men, a lovely dress will suit her well or a nice jumpsuit. If you want to take your lady out on a nice romantic date, selecting the nice outfit does justice to the whole evening. You could also complement it with the right underwear and a beautiful pair of shoe.
As a female, you could get him a nice smart shirt that will make him look really cool. This could also complement for a date night or any outdoor event. This could be complemented with a boxer shorts ( you know what your other half puts on).
Gift Box: Just like the one below, it comes with different but lovely collections. Luckily, there are male and female gift boxes.
Piece of jewellery such as Wrist Watches/ Bracelet/Necklaces/ Earrings :
You can get this as a pair or mix it up.
Video Game Console: Although this is slightly on the high side, none the less, if you are able to, some men love to have an Xbox or ps4. This is sure to blow his mind.
Fashion bag/ Shoe: You also can’t go wrong in this.
Inscribed Gifts: This could come in form of a mug or a sofa pillow with the person’s picture crested upon it expressing how much they mean to you.
Nail Polish Set: Every female likes to have her nails done. So why not?
Flower: I am not a huge fan but a lot of ladies love this. My mum loves flowers so for someone like her when getting a gift, it will be ideal to top it up with a bouquet of flowers. For others, it might be a love for chocolate or a nice wine e.t.c. These are additional top up’s you could add to their gift item.
So there you have it. Valentine is upon us, I hope you have a great one and spread love.
Let me know what gift ideas you have in mind and what you hope to get your partner, wife, husband, mum, dad or siblings and additional gift ideas you think I missed out.
