It’s the season of love, and Valentines day is just around the corner. Whether you’re her boyfriend, his girlfriend or a couple reading this together, I know you’re looking for ways to make this Valentines day special.
What could be more special than some unexpected and memorable gifts for the occasion? And what if I told you that you can buy these gifts on a highly affordable budget? Without burning a hole in your pocket.
I won’t waste more of your time. So here’s a list of the most unique Valentines day gifts, for him and for her.
Valentines Day Gifts for Her
1. Personalized Letter-shaped Night Lamp
Giving good surprises is one thing. But it’s the suspense before the surprise that makes the experience so amazing. I have an idea for one gift that can add the most thrilling suspense for your Valentines day surprise.
Picture this- You invite her to a room void of any light. She goes in, trying to find what you’re up to in pitch darkness of the room. Then all of a sudden, a night lamp lits up with a special message for her! This can be followed by some other bigger surprise you may have planned for her.
Where to buy such a customized night lamp? A personalized letter-shaped night lamp offered by Ferns N Petals can spice up your Valentines day surprise.
Priced at ₹1,699, this lamp is definitely expensive. But the emotion it adds to your Valentines day surprise more than makes up for the price. After all, we spend most of our money to create such memorable moments, don’t we?
2. A Small Syngonium Plant
You may be wondering what a plant has to in the list of best Valentines day gifts. What does a plant have to do with the season of love?
Well, the Syngonium plant, also called Arrowhead vine or Goosefoot plant is no ordinary plant species. They have in them the ability to purify the air, and can actively play a role in removing air pollution inside the home. In fact, even NASA has approved of the Syngonium plant’s air purifying capabilities in its research.
A Syngonium plant might be the best Valentines day gift if your girlfriend lives in the polluted city of Delhi!
Another great thing about this plant is that it doesn’t die so easily. So you don’t have to take care of it all the time. This is a plant that only requires limited care, and its benefits would help create a pure, fresh environment in her home.
I guess just buying a Syngonium plant and putting it on a simple vase wouldn’t make it special enough for Valentines day, would it? Luckily, Ferns N Petals offers a special Syngonium plant put on top of a cute mug at only ₹449. It has just the right message, “I’ll never stop loving you” that goes perfectly with the plants’ endurance, detoxification, among other benefits.
3. Personalized Engraved Wooden Plaque for Valentines day
Women love art. They love it even more if a piece of art highlights something good about them. What better way to woo your better half than presenting her with a custom, laser-etched engraving of her portrait on a solid wooden plaque! A sweet message for her to go with it would be an icing on the cake.
There are lots of websites like Ferns N Petals that offer custom wooden plaques, but they just have a monochrome print of your chosen photo on the plaque.
But an engraved plaque is completely different. Since the photo is laser-etched on to the wood, you could actually feel the photo, and it gives a cool 3D effect when you look at it closely.
Sadly, these etchings start to fade eventually and the wood finish pales after some time (in around 1-2 years). But the aging of that solid piece of wood is an art in itself if you could see from a different perspective.
One of the best custom wooden engraved plaques are offered by Incrediblegifts.in at a price of just ₹570.
4. An Explosion Box
Ask any woman about the best gifts she ever liked. I guarantee that for most of them, the best gifts regardless of their material value were those which came as a surprise.
An explosion box is one of the best surprises that could catch any girl off-guard. Send small gifts to her each day during Valentines week, and end it off on an explosive note with a burst of memories! That sounds like a great idea doesn’t it?
Ferns N Petals offers different types of explosion boxes that you can buy online for Valentine’s day. Their Hearty Memories Explosion Box can stack up to 21 images inside a box- ready to explode when she finally opens it up on Valentine’s day. This explosion box costs ₹1,499, but there are cheaper options available on FNP’s website.
5. True Wireless Earphones
True Wireless Earphones became popular after the launch of Apple AirPods. Its popularity is now increasing even further after Apple recently launched the AirPods Pro.
The type of earphones like the AirPods is now collectively termed as True Wireless Earphones. These are obviously different from the standard wireless earphones having wires connecting the earbuds and also the best gift to make your Valentines day special.
They look cooler, are more portable, and the babies can be charged conveniently by putting them inside a chargeable case.
If your partner has an iPhone, then definitely there’s no better choice than the original AirPods, despite it being expensive.
However, there is a decent range of true Wireless Earphones to choose from if she has an Android smartphone.
Here are two of the best true wireless earphones you can gift her this Valentines season.
- RealMe Buds Air: This set of truly wireless earphones from RealMe is a shameless copy of Apple’s AirPods. Yet it isn’t bad at all because of what it offers. The sound is decent, battery life is fine, and at just ₹3,999, you’re getting an excellent value for money.
- Boats AirDopes: The Boats AirDopes have one of the best names for a pair of true wireless earphones. They’re priced well too, costing only ₹2,999. However, their size and weight is a bit on the higher side.
Valentines Day Gifts for Him
1. Nescafé É Smart Coffee Maker and Travel Mug
The daily routine of going for a job is often tiring on the mind and body. One of the best respites for such stress is a good cup of coffee. This is why a portable coffee maker is perhaps the best gift a hardworking man can get.
The É Smart Coffee Maker from Nescafé offers the benefits of a portable coffee maker and a quality travel mug in one package. It’s “Smart” too in the sense that you can control the coffee maker directly through your phone after connecting it via Bluetooth to the NESCAFE E Connected Mug App.
The coffee maker prepares a refreshing cup of coffee in less than 90 seconds, and the mug lets it remain at a constant temperature for a long time. Priced at ₹6,499, its a bit expensive, but certainly valuable for a husband/boyfriend who delivers peak performance in his daily job.
2. A Multi- Utility Swiss Knife
Price: ₹900- ₹5,000
A Multi-utility Swiss Knife is a perfect gift for a man if he likes tinkering with stuff on the go. A common Swiss Knife is a pocket tool with handy tools such as a knife (duh), scissors, nail cleaner (for the girlfriend), a couple or more heads for screwdrivers, corkscrew opener, bottle opener, and some other handy stuff that could be useful for every guy.
I would recommend buying any Swiss Knife from Victorinox. They are the makers of the original Swiss Army Knives and offer a lifetime warranty on all products of the category. That makes for a gift that can last an entire life and one that a man can pass on to future generations.
My Choice for the Best Swiss Knife as a Valentines Day Gift would be the Victorinox MiniChamp Swiss Army Knife. It has almost all the tools a man may need, is compact, looks kinda cute and costs ₹2,272.
3. Personalized Keychain
A man usually has a lot of keys to take care of. The keys of his home, room, office cabin, lockers, and vehicles. So a good keychain is a must to keep hold of all those precious keys and use them conveniently.
This is why a personalized keychain is one of the best gifts a man can get for Valentines day. It would help them store their keys safely while reminding them of the love of their life. There are several online websites that offer to build a customized keychain and send it via courier delivery.
Here are some websites from where you can order a personalized keychain:
- Ferns N Petals offers a customized keychain with embedded Pendrive. So it lets him store his keys along with a few digital memories. Price: ₹699.
- Archies offers a great collection of personalized keychains within a price range of ₹199- 349.
- IGP offers the best designs for personalized keychains in my opinion. Their personalized keychains are available in a price range between ₹250- 450.
4. Mi Beard Trimmer
The Mi Beard trimmer is one of the most value-for-money trimmers available in the market today. Priced at just ₹1,199, this beard trimmer offers features unheard of in this price segment.
The Mi trimmer charges to full in just 2 hours and can also be used cordlessly for 90 minutes. It can also be used while attached to the cord. Additionally, the Mi Beard trimmer offers IPX7 water resistance and has a 40-length setting for styling beard in any way a man wants or the way his girlfriend wants him to.
This Trimmer from Xiaomi is a great Valentines day gift for men- unless he already has purchased one as its a highly demanded product.
5. A Personalized Wallet
A wallet is one of the only few things you’ll always find in a man’s pocket. However, its beauty or aesthetic is often ignored. I mean, I don’t see too many guys paying attention to their wallets as its just a tool to store money and cards.
But things could be better if he gets to stamp his identity on the wallet. That’s why a personalized wallet is such a unique gift for him this Valentines day.
Unlike the keychain, the personalization of his custom wallet should just be about him. So that he feels at least some pride in showing off a wallet with his identity embossed on it.
The Personalized Wallet from Ferns N Petals, priced at ₹799 offers great customization options. In addition to embossing a metal plate with name on the wallet, you can also choose from a decent variety of metal signs that suit his identity.
