For Your Parents
Can we even plan anything special without thinking about our first love? Spoiler alert, don’t ask for gift suggestions, or you will be inundated with lectures on your squandering habits at the drop of a hat. So save yourself time and plan a surprise. Everyone loves surprises.
A great gift idea for your mom would be a gift card from her fave stores, many local stores like Khaadi, Chen One, Hyper Star offer gift cards in different denominations. If your mom ignores her beauty regime, time to book her a relaxing day at a SPA, so she can enjoy the luxurious treatments without the worries of the usual household chores (don’t forget to pay in advance!).
If your family enjoys outdoor activities, a campfire fishing-pole roaster for your dad is a great idea, order it online so he can leisurely contribute to family BBQ nights while relaxing on his garden chair. Our dads are forgetful when it comes to phone charging, get him a power bank that combines style with functionality, KMASHI 10000mAh Power Bank, RAV Power 16,750mAh power bank, Anker Power Core mini 3,350mAh are some of the best options available.
For them both: Hand-carved shisham wood eyeglasses holder can be a perfect keepsake addition to your parents’ bedroom or office; it’s time to pay a visit to Zainab Market or order it online. They not only look unique but offer great solution to keep eyeglasses safe and handy. Book your parents a relaxing dinner for two at their favourite restaurant; just make sure to pick a day before or after the Valentine, so they don’t have to worry about the maddening crowd and traffic congestion.
For Your Partner-in-Crime aka Sister
Unlike your parents, your sister would never say no to gifts, instead she would give you a million reasons to keep her pampered so she remains a party with you. A pretty outfit is a charming way to make her happy, instantly. If she is into skincare get her facial mask gift set from the Body Shop, or surprise the makeup goddesses with endless local and international luxuries available at Scentsation. If she enjoys reading, buy her a hardcover of her fave author or any special book releasing this month.
If you have a married sister, plan a surprise by giving her a dinner treat through FoodPanda or any other home delivery options available online, just don’t forget to check on her availability before you place the order. A nicely wrapped chocolate basket with all her sweet cravings is always a good idea too.
For Your Brother
Way to your brother’s heart is through the latest tech gadgets or anything that make them work faster. If he is a gaming person, the SteelSeries Arctic 5 Gaming Headset is the perfect addition to his collection. G.U.S. Eco-Friendly Bamboo Multi-Device Charging Station can keep all his devices happy, Samsung Gear VR can also be a good idea for your tech-savvy sibling. If he is into statement phone cases, order him a Carved Smartphone Case or surprise him with a custom-designed phone case from the Wood Geek Store website.
Nothing can make your sports fanatic brother happier than getting his fave sports gear, if he is a gym person, invest in a duffel bag with large vented pocket to help those sweaty clothes and shoes to breathe that announce his arrival. And if you are still unsure about his choices, Amazon Gift Card can come in handy.
For Your BFF
It’s good to keep your bff happy, and what better time than Valentine’s Day to make him/her feel special. For your cool bff who is always on the go, an R2-D2 Car Charger would make you his fan for the lifetime. The charger sits in a cup holder and plugs into a cigarette lighter.

For Your Kid
So whether you want to give a Valentine’s Day gift to your kid, nephew/niece or fave baby cousin, it’s important to know a little about their liking. While some kids love lunch box surprises to impress their friends at school, others would love to get something to play with. Kids Rox Volume Limiting Headphones is a sure way to keep your little techie happy; you can even give them a Nintendo 3DS $35 Prepaid Game Card (card is sent via email after payment confirmation) which allows them to download up to $35 worth of content from the Nintendo Network. Toss in an iTunes gift card or add some credit into their iTunes account and let them decide.
A baseball cap of their fave team/character, souvenir shirt, play tents, mini basketball hoop, portable tabletop tennis game are some options to delight your little fans.
For Your Man
Did we forget him while thinking about the family, of course not, all the while we were dying to jump to this section first. But before you make a list of stuff you want to shower him with, first decide whether your guy is a gadget, outdoors, sporty or homely man and then decide for the ultimate stealer. Of course any gift from you is bound to melt his heart, but it is important to give him something that he truly cherishes.
A well thought wrist watch can never go wrong, so is his fave fragrance. If he takes his appearance seriously, think about investing in high-quality copper cuff links with great details; impress him with your knowledge of his fave characters by choosing Darth Vader cuff links for the Star Wars fan or Marvel for the Avengers’ enthusiast.
Matching tees and baseball caps for you and your bae always look cute, but look for something different. Many local companies now offer custom-made tees and jackets inscribed with names and taglines. Make life easier for your fitness freak guy with Monster iSport Bluetooth Wireless SuperSlim In-Ear Headphones, GPS watch with fitness tracker is the trending new toy for health fanatics; some even come with built-in heart rate monitor like Fitbit, others come with 3GB memory space for music, so he can play your suggested tunes while on the run.
For Your Girl
While this is no brainer, a girl can never have enough jewellery, so pick something that best suits your budget. If your Khaleesi is the moon of your life, then get her a thoughtful Keepsake Memory Box so she can fill it with memorable photos and moments you guys have shared together. A stunning timepiece with plenty of sparkly jewels is another great idea to prove just how much she means to you.
