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.
The eve of Valentine’s Day is incomplete without going for dinner along with some good wine or champagne with your special someone.

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 Rs 275.
