Nailing it this Valentine’s Day with this cool gift list

Flowers, jewellery, chocolates...they're timeless for a reason. But if you're looking for something unconventional for your quirky Valentine, we've compiled a list of cool gifts for Valentine's Day.

Heat things up with these cool gifts for Valentine’s Day:

Candy cake

Does your lovely lad or lady have an incurable sweet tooth? It’s that time of the year when you can always forgive yourself for a little candy. To jazz it up, why not a candy cake, complete with candles?


Couple’s spa

You’re both busy, working adults and parents and don’t have much time to relax. How about a gift that you can both enjoy? Get a couple’s massage, scrub and hot tub package and ease that tension together.


Makeup bouquet

Sure, fresh flowers are always a beautiful and safe bet. But if your lady is obsessed with Kylie’s lip kits or Huda Beauty eyeshadow palettes, one-up your game and get her a makeup bouquet. And if that entire previous sentence didn’t make sense to you, get one of her girlfriends to help you out with this one!


Food bouquet


Your girl not the makeup/shopping type at all? Try going a little creative with their favourite foods instead. Pizza bouquet, anyone?  Or maybe a chicken bouquet? (PS: This one works well for the hubbies as well! Note: Sense of humour required.)


Dance classes

Do you prefer to share experiences , rather than things? Then sign your partner and yourself up for some dance classes! Let things get steamy with a sexy salsa class, or a romantic waltz!



And maybe all you need this Valentine’s Day is to spend some time together. If so, it’s time to send out the SOS signal to the grandparents! Let your parents look after the kids for a bit and sweep your partner off their feet with a staycation. Tip: A staycation doesn’t have to mean a local hotel…think nearby destinations like Bintan…or your own home! There’s nothing like some mood lighting to turn your house into a luxury retreat.


Jewellery with a twist

Gift card

Okay, do cool gifts for Valentine’s day seem too daunting? How about a gift card to their favourite place to shop, whether it’s makeup, food, quirky gadgets or a craft store.  For bonus points, make it a day and go shopping together!
