February 14th is right around the corner and if you’re scratching your brain for the perfect gift for your partner, or even, your little fling — scratch no more.
There are a bevy of gifts that you can present to that specific person you’ve been spending most of your time with recently from big to small, expensive to affordable or even something that you can make yourself. Expectations this year may not be as high due to the reality we’re living in but that is not to say you are limited in ways to make that special someone smile. Experiences can also count as a present; anything from a home cooked meal (Covid-19) friendly, or a drive-in movie night is an excellent way of spending Valentine’s Day.
- The age old favorite — Cologne or Perfume . You can’t ever really go wrong with this
one especially if you know what scent your partner favors. Along this theme of scents,
you can also gift them their favorite cologne or perfume with candles, to make it a
complete package. Some favorite fragrances right now include: Black Opium by YSL ,
Prada Candy , Glossier You , Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere Perfume ,
D&G Light Blue EDT Spray , Tom Ford Noir , Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio ,
Versace Eros , and Aesop fragrances.
- An experience. By experience we mean planning a fun, thoughtful date. Now, this could mean cooking them their favorite meal, or if you’re not that skilled in the kitchen, buy it and present it nicely. If you’re lucky enough to live in a warm climate, an outdoor picnic would be ideal, socially distanced of course and you can even prepare a charcuterie board for an added twist. Going to a drive in and catching a movie as previously mentioned is also something that would be appreciated and it steps away from the quarantine routine many of us have become accustomed to already.
- More Valentine’s Day Gifts : If you’re dating a sneakerhead getting them the latest Nike release (Nike Dunk Low “Orange Pearl” or Air Jordan 1 High “Silver Toe) will do the job. Some of the releases are due a few days after Valentine’s Day but I’m sure in this case, the thought is what counts. Fear of God’ s Essentials hoodies are hot on the market right now and while they’re typically sold out on the official website, they can be purchased at different vendors such as Ssense or Stockx. Of course, getting your partner the highly coveted Telfar bag or Carlton Yaito bag will do the trick too. Regardless of what you get them this Valentine’s Day, just make sure to make your partner feel loved and appreciated.
