Weekend Plus Desk :
It’s February, and the season of love is here. Not that love is only restricted to one month of the year, but if there is a special day (rather, a week) dedicated to it, why not make your loved one feel extra special? With all the pep and pizzazz around the upcoming Valentine’s Week, are you busy brainstorming what to gift your partner this year?
Well, there will be always cards, flowers and chocolates - but why not go for something that is not so cliché this time around? Of course, a romantic candlelight dinner or a weekend trip can make it memorable, but if you’re planning to gift something that will stay with your partner forever, here are some cool ideas. Moreover, since this February 14 falls on a Wednesday, most of us might have to make do with quirky presents.
Along with making reservations at a restaurant or surprising them with home-cooked meals, a little token of love will be an added perk to bring a smile on their face. Check out these quirky ways to make this V-Day unforgettable.
Wine Glasses
The eve of Valentine’s Day is incomplete without going for dinner along with some good wine or champagne with your special someone. As you enjoy your romantic date in a quaint and dreamy setting, enjoy your drink in these special ‘his and her’ glasses. Give a toast to your love and enjoy the day with these quirky glasses. Available on the Archies’ online shopping site, one can buy them for just Rs 799.
 Voice Greetings Card
Greetings cards often miss that personal touch. Of course, handmade cards are special - but given the time constraint, or lack of artistic skills - it might not be on priority for many. But thanks to technology, now you can send a personalised card with a special message and a voice note too. And if your loved one is far away this Valentine’s Day, it could be a great option to bring a smile on their face. Choose from an array of designs from Gift Ease’s website for just Tk 300.
Bookends
Is your girlfriend or boyfriend a bookworm? If you can’t find a book apt for her, why not gift her something that helps her keep her books organised in a trendy way. From cool metallic ones to classy ceramic cases, choose the best according to your budget and her taste. Starting from Tk 1800, you can get them at the Uncommon Goods’ website.
Personalised Hardboard Puzzle
Looking for something personalised to make your girlfriend feel special? Add a little fun to your gift this Valentines’s Day by gifting her a puzzle of her name or a candid photo of both of you. Enjoy your date building blocks together and strengthen your love. Available on Gifts by Meeta’s website, these personalised gifts can be bought at Tk 1,000.
 Tie and Cufflink set
If you want something elegant for your husband or boyfriend, gift him a classy tie and cufflink set to look dapper. Choose from a wide range of sets depending on your budget from Jabong.
