Alas, the day of celebrating love is dawning upon us. While Valentines’ Day may be just a mere 9 days away, many are scrambling to find gift ideas for their significant other but if you’re reading this article, there’s a high chance you might just be earnestly shopping for your last-minute gifts too!
Fret not! For we are here to save you (and bring a smile on your partner’s face)! For this special gift article, we will be coming up with gifts suitable for both him and her so you can be assured you’ll find something you like by the end of it!
Gifts for Him
Buying gifts for men are actually really simple: you find out what they want, and you simply get it for them. Women, however, are entirely different. Men are certainly much simpler creatures, and for the men who have almost everything in life, choosing and buying gifts may be a bit of a hassle. If this happens, stick to the one thing you can provide: An Experience.
While they may seem to have everything in life, surely, they have not tried everything out there, right?
At Axe Factor, you can gift your partner an experience he will never forget! The first of its kind, Axe Factor is a fun and stress relieving activity that you will both get to enjoy and at the same time, vent all your frustrations out in a fun, healthy and exciting way!
Inspired by ‘Aquaman’ star Jason Momoa’s video at an ax throwing range, the partners behind Axe Factor were excited to bring the concept over to Singapore, where we could have a hand at throwing axes, in a safe environment. While it sounds rather odd, venting out your stress together as a couple may not sound like a bad idea when you’re actually doing it together. In fact, to spice things up, you may even consider going on a double or triple date for this activity and compete to see who’s the best couple!

I’m not sure about you, but I love special gifts. They could cost really little, but if you have put your heart into it, they would still be really special. I chanced upon Gsews whilst looking for a gift for a close friend and I absolutely love her work!
While the waiting time takes around 4 weeks for completion as every single aspect of the bag is customized and chosen by yourself, you can have enough time to prepare the rest of your date while you wait for its arrival.
For made-to-order products, Gsews gives you the liberty to choose from the template piece (e.g. drawstring, tote, cardholder etc.), the exterior fabric and color (from classic black to natural nude), interior fabric (a wide variety I must add!), and finally, any add on you prefer (coin zip pockets, calligraphy embroidery and even card slots). The waiting time may be long, but it’ll be more than worth it when you see the smile on your partner’s face!
With that, we hope we have inspired you to choose an interesting gift for your partner this year and celebrate your love with a twist. Times may be tough, but the power of two is tougher!
Happy Chinese New Year and Valentine's’ Day! We really love these gift article ideas, and we hope that with the coming festivities, we can share more of these lovely gift ideas with you and your loved ones!
We wish you a prosperous new year ahead and stay safe!
