Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Post on February 09, 2018 | SOGO Malaysia

The long-awaited celebration for lovebirds around the world is on the horizon. And, as you know, this is the best time and opportunity to express your love and appreciation to the people that you love the most. Doesn’t matter if you are going to celebrate it with your closest friends, colleague or family, the act of giving presents is a good gesture that can always brighten someone else’s day.


But, before you go crazy on swiping your card for the cliche gifts such as a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers (Yes, they are fine but...), we recommend that you take a moment and go through our list of unique gift ideas. Picking out the right gifts can be a daunting task, to say the least. So scroll down, folks!


Bluetooth Speaker


Who doesn’t enjoy a catchy beat and eargasmic vocals? We all do, yeah? Which is why gifting it to your significant other will definitely be a foolproof plan for the upcoming Valentine’s Day. The portability of a Bluetooth Speaker is also an added bonus! You can easily carry it around your house and perhaps on your next picnic date too. Sweet!


Denim Jacket


It is really hard to say no to a denim jacket. Why? Frankly, because it is oh so simple yet stylish at the same time, and it looks great in both formal and casual settings too. It is a bargain we tell ya! However, if you decide to purchase one this year, opt for a pair of dark, raw coloured denim with no visible washing patterns. That way, you can look more professional and at the same time earn the bragging rights for creating your very own sick and authentic fades.




Subtle flex is the key here as every single detail counts, even the tiniest ones! Cufflinks work perfectly for the man who deck out in a formal attire for their 9 - 5 job. They are available in a plethora of designs and colours, from budget-friendly ones to high-end designer labels. So, choosing one for the Valentine’s shouldn't be a problem.




Why women go head over heels over a bracelet? We still don’t know and it is a mystery that we wish to let it stay unsolved. However, what we do know is that a bracelet is one of the most important pieces in their wardrobe, it looks great on her wrist and will surely put a smile on her face. Trust us, it’s a good investment.  




One for her, and one for you. Why not grab a matchy watch this time? They will last a lifetime and it will never go out of style. However, remember to choose your timepiece carefully, as active couples would prefer waterproof digital sports watch over the dressier ones, and so on and so forth, you get the idea. Plus, there’s no more excuse to be late on dates now.




This is strictly for the married couples only, alright? *Clears throat*...oh mind the halal gap, please.


Messenger Bag / Handbag


Just because we always carry a power brick, water bottle, books and plenty of things on our daily basis to either work or leisure. A practical, stylish and functional gift will be appreciated, always! So, why not get a simple messenger bag in either leather or Cordura for him, and a chic handbag for her this time, shall we?




You can wear a pair of Converse with pretty much anything and everything. The classic silhouette has withstood the test of time, from the basketball courts and to the streets. The best part of owning a pair of Chucks is that you can keep it neat, or trash 'em, yet they will still be great in your wardrobe.


(A quick history lesson, Converse Chuck Taylor design hasn’t really changed since 1949 and they have been around for almost 70 years, worn by plenty of famous stars like Elvis and Kurt Cobain)


Scented Candles

Romance is in the air! Scented candles are relatively cheap to buy, so light one up on your date to set the mood and feel. Mmm...steamy!


Love Letters


Time to ditch the digital screens and modern age tech for a moment. Sometimes, all you need is just a good old pen and a piece of paper to do the trick. Though you might not be as good as Shakespeare when it comes to putting your feelings on paper, the fact that you take the extra initiative to even try will melt your partner’s heart into a puddle of Awwww...

P/S: It’s economical too! *wink*.
