The List: Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just 2 days away! And knowing all the guys out there, they’d be looking for gifts for their loved ones at the last minute– again (sooo what else is new lol).

Sooooo, pay attention 😀

Women always love flowers but sadly these flowers wilt after a day or so, so be more practical– give them edible bouquets from Fruits in Bloom instead!


Not only do you get a heavenly scent (the fruit bouquet smells so much better than real flowers), the fruit bouquet will also leave a sweet taste on your lips 🙂 And then there are the chocolate dipped fruit bits for that added sweet indulgence! To order or buy a bouquet, call Fruits in Bloom in the Philippines at (+632) 812-0380. I believe they also currently have a booth at on the ground floor of Rockwell Powerplant Mall.

Speaking of chocolate, it is undeniable that most girls love chocolate. But hah, after devouring a whole bar, box, or can of chocolate (and it better be good chocolate hahaha), we ladies end up regretting wolfing down those irresistible confections. And then hahaha, we will probably end up blaming you men for the hips situation. Yes, hips situation– you know, “A moment on your lips, forever on your hips.” That quote pertained to chocolate if you didn’t know it haha. So here’s a sinful indulgence without the guilt! The Body Shop’s ChocoMania is back– after it was proven so popular! The best thing about this is, it’s fat freeeee 🙂



Great packaging too, in time for hearts day *awww*. And boys, this won’t cost you anywhere near as much as jewellery, so don’t complain. It’s very, very wallet- friendly. So you can also get a nice can for yourself! chocomania2I love the Body Butter and Body Scrub the most in this series, and the lip butter works wonders too for when I get chapped lips. For sure your loved ones will enjoy receiving this as much as I do 🙂 The ChocoMania Deluxe pack is available at The Body Shop.

Jewellery! Women looove jewellery! Why not give her a delicate bracelet that she can wear and remember you by each time she sees it?


Priced reasonably, these silver or gold- tone bracelets from Paris are available at Accessory Lab (+632) 890-9011.

Now if you have a little more budget to splurge for her, I suggest giving her a bottle of YSL’s *or should I say, Saint Laurent’s* newest scent, Manifesto.  It has a wonderful and sensual scent that will leave you (and her) charmed!


The scent will be something that will remind you of her, and her of you! *Wouldn’t you like that?* YSL Manifesto is available in all perfume counters in leading department stores.

If your loved one isn’t too into going out and is most comfortable in casual (island) wear, then I think the perfect Valentine’s pressie would be to accompany her to pick out one or two pairs of TKEES flip flops.


I have a few pairs of these and I can personally vouch for how comfortable they are. These flip flops are not too casual and are finely made so they can actually transition well as just day slippers to even night slippers– for a fun casual dinner out together 🙂  TKEES is available in Manila at The Flat Shop in Greenhills Shopping Center and at Glorietta 3.

Wallets make great gifts too (they’re less expensive compared to a bag haha)lanceladjani

The Lancel L’Adjani wallet has enough credit card slots, billfold compartments, a zipped coin compartment as well as a “hidden” business card compartment that makes this the ideal wallet to own. Love the leather of this wallet– and it also comes in textured mock croc! Available at Lancel (Lancel is located inside Shangrila Plaza Mall in the Philippines)

And oooh if you have a budget for a bag (luckkkky recipient), I highly approve of the Louis Vuitton Metis hobo bag.  

LVmetispress It has been awhile since I wrote and recommended a monogram bag from Louis Vuitton (or any other brand for that matter) but I have taken a serious liking to this one. The exterior pocket (inspired by the LV Monceau envelop bag) is a huge plus (for your car keys, phone, and business cards), and the double strap (either are detachable) makes the bag easy to carry and extremely versatile. Oh and this same Metis bag also comes in the empreinte leather version (which I myself am seriously lusting for at the moment)


That blue empreinte Metis is serious loooove… *wishful thinking*

Now let’s talk jewellery– because I hardly know any women who would say no to jewellery.


Declare your love with precious stones set in precious metal. Perhaps a pair of earrings would do better than a ring (if you’re still single and still undecided about taking that next step in your relationship haha).  Signed jewellery from Tiffany, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels are always welcome 🙂 And there are a plethora of reputable jewellery shops all over for you to pick out that piece that not only works for your budget but will also be something she will love. *Earrings above are available at Accessory Lab, 2F Rockwell Powerplant Mall, Makati City. (+632) 890-9011*.

Alright, I’ve pretty much covered different gift ideas for different budgets. Now, if there is no special someone in your life at the moment, there is absolutely no reason to be sour over Valentine’s Day! Go ahead and treat yourself to something from my suggested gifts above! After all, before you can love someone else, you must always love yourself first 🙂

Hope I was of some help to you peeps!!
