5 Quirky Gift Options for your Valentine this Valentine's Day

Hey my loves, how's the month of love proceeding for you? Valentine's Day is round the corners and most of you still haven't sorted your gift ideas for your dear one this time. If it's the first one you're celebrating with your partner, you must ensure to give something that's memorable but something out of the box. I have prepared a list of 5 things you could buy this Valentine's for your Valentine, and I can vouch for the fact that these are going to be some of the most thoughtful gifts ever! 

1. Customised Picture Bouquet, Explosion Box, Biscuit Chocolates

You're really not giving someone a gift if you're not putting your thought into it. I feel the whole idea of presenting something to a person you love means that he/she should remember you and your gesture forever! I personally am a great fan of customised and handmade gifts and something that requires to put in lots and lots of dedication.

I recently came across an online store called CRAFTY AFFAIR that sells all kinds of luxury picture bouquets, explosion boxes and handmade biscuit chocolates, etc. In fact they presented me all three of those very sweetly and it was the best thing I'd received in many years! The bouquet looked highly attractive with all my pictures placed on sticks perfectly, and decorated with rhinestones, while the basket had red feather for a soft touch. The second present was an Explosion Box, which had a lid that when removed, the square box opened into for parts with several other pictures of me and some sweet messages on each one of them from the past years. The big box included a small box inside too, which can be used to keep any knick knacks! And lastly, they gave me a decoratively pack of Chocolates that were actually Biscuits coated in milk chocolate and tasted super crunchy and yum.

Now, imagine gifting all of these to your lover with pictures of you two together and surprising him/her with the most thoughtful gift ever. After all, you cannot throw the bouquet away, and the box will always be there on your table to remind you of your dear one!

2.  A pair of Offbeat Ballerianas

Females know it well that men hate shopping with them, for hours and picking up their bags. To be honest, I doubt if even 10% of men know what foot size is their partner. And then, out of the blue when your girlfriend, fiancee, or wife receives a parcel consisting of a pair of quirky ballerinas and gets to know that you (her boyfriend, fiancee, or husband) sent it to her, its going to be an amazing moment to capture!

Frankly, women are shoe hoarders. I'm one too, and I know its never enough for them in their shoe closet! I'd suggest all men out there to grab some pretty pieces from JOLAA.IN this Valentine's and make the girl of your life smile. Jolaa, an e-commerce website has a wide collection of ballerinas, handbags, tote bags, sling pouches, home decor items for women, and sneakers and wallets for men. I myself got a pair of Lunastain ballerinas which look so stylish with multi colored serpentine lines (in the pictures below) and they are extremely comfy to wear too!

3. The Crunchiest Popcorn

Humans love to eat, and you can never go wrong with gifting food to your loved one, or to anyone for that matter. But, regular lunch or dinner treats have become monotonous, and its time you up-standard yourselves by gifting something that looks unconventional and delicious enough!

THE CRUNCH BOX is India's first pure gourmet popcorn brand that sells the crunchiest and the tastiest popcorn pan India. With more than 15 flavours to offer, under the category of savoury, candied and specials, TCB gives mouthwatering options like : Chunky Munky Cheese, Classic Pizza Krunch, Smokehouse BBQ, Dark Chocolate, Mint, etc. For people who are popcorn fanatics like me, will know better how much they want to try the craziest edits of the crunchy popcorn. Trust me this time, its going to be all worth your penny. No expensive luxury items, nothing to go waste. Get your better half a few boxes of flavourful popcorn from The Crunch Box and you're sorted!

4. Peel Off Lipgloss

Talking of just girls, I guess one thing that never is a bad option to gift them is some makeup or beauty products. You can choose from an exuberantly wide range of products like lipsticks, eye shadows, mascara, blushes, bronzers, etc; from lots of brands to name like Bobbi Brown, MAC, Lakme, Loreal, Maybelline and many more. But where's the oddball?

If you want to present your darling girl something wacky and still very useful, you should opt for the newly launched Peel Off Lipgloss, which is available at the most affordable rates on an online shopping portal called SHOPPING24FREAK.

I ordered a pack of 7 South Korean lip glosses since I'd been hearing about it a lot, lately. It consisted of flavours like : Chocolate, Strawberry, Avocado, Watermelon, Kiwi & Red Breen. Its basically like a lip tattoo, where you apply the gloss on your lips and peel it off like a mask after letting it rest for  awhile!

I tried the watermelon flavour, and the lip tint came off easily and painlessly, in two pieces (top lip and bottom lip). I took it slow and experienced no bleeding or skin removal. A red tint remained on my lip, similar to a popsicle stain, even after I tried rubbing it off for next several hours. So, you know its there for a while, and your girlfriend won't even have to cry for eating it up, and even you won't have to feel its taste like a lipstick during a kiss maybe! ;)

5. Two In One Luxe Necklace

You can never go wrong with jewelry to gift to the women of your life! The idea is classic. Women need new jewelry to flaunt everywhere and its again never enough in their collection. But while you're picking up something sexy for your lover, you should pitch on a piece that could be versatile. Like a multi-stone necklace I found on the BLINGLANE website, known for the best luxurious jewelry in India.

The necklace can be worn in the day over a solid tee or at night on a gown, and to top that it can be donned even as a bohemian headgear and that attracted me the most! PS : Just so you know, not every single is a two-in-one, so you should make a wise choice while selecting the best piece available! If you're looking for a fine jewelry set, or a pair of earrings, bracelets, anklets, etc, Blinglane is your ultimate online shopping destination!
