Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift to show your loved one just how much they mean to you. While chocolates and flowers are always a classic choice, there are plenty of other creative and thoughtful gifts that can make your Valentine feel extra special. Here are some popular gift ideas to get you started:

1. Flowers and chocolates
You can never go wrong with a classic Valentine’s Day gift, a bouquet of red roses and a box of chocolates. This is a gift no one would want to turn down. You get this gift at any supermarket and the flower section, with a variety of choices to pick from. You can also get some at a flower store, and have it personally made with your choice of flowers. Pick up any chocolate you know your valentine will love and put it all together! If you want to add one more thing, a nice hand made or store bought card will top it off. Write a cute and meaningful message and put it all together!

2. Jewelry
Jewelry is a gift that can be used and cherished for years to come. Consider a necklace, bracelet, or a pair of earrings. You can get any type of jewelry basically anywhere. You can go to a mall closest to you, like Mall of the Emirates, Nakheel mall, Dubai Marina Mall, or even spring souk. Each one of those places has a jewelry store. You can go to Pandora, Swarovski, Lovisa and many other places where you can get a nice necklace, ring, earrings or a bracelet.

3. Personalized gifts
Personalized gifts such as a custom photo books show thoughtfulness and effort. You can go to an arts and crafts store such as Daiso, which has many items for a cheap price, and you can make a book of memories. You can add photos of all the events and you can write a meaningful message. This is just one of many ideas on how you can create a gift to express your gratitude.

4. Candles, bath products, and scents
Create a relaxing atmosphere with candles, bath products, and essential oils. You can get this at Bath and Body Works, The Body Shop, Nordstrom and many others. You can get candles, perfumes, lotions and scents. You can get many good deals at some of these shops like buy one get one free.

5. Cooking or baking classes
Give the gift of experience by signing your significant other up for a cooking or baking class. There are many cooking and baking classes in Dubai that you can sign you and your partner up. There is Top Chef Dubai, International Centre for Culinary Arts, and many others. Put your preference in and search up what best suits what you want to do. This can also be a nice day for you and your friend, and spend your Valentine’s day with a friend that means a lot to you. A ‘Galentine’s day.’ Enjoy the class

Ultimately, the best Valentine’s Day gift is one that comes from the heart and fits the interests of your significant other. It’s the thought that counts. Enjoy your Valentines!
