Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine's day is just around the corner!
...But don't worry we got you.
Firstly, ladies, you can also buy a gift for him this holiday so this list is for you too. And gentlemen, even if she says she doesn’t need anything for Valentine’s Day, please don’t mind her, there are still many things she wants.
Thinking of the perfect gift that simply says “you are appreciated,” can take some time regardless of if the two of you have been together for a while or just started dating. But shopping for this gift shouldn’t be stressful. This is why AfroVibes has complied a Valentine’s Day Gift list for you.
These gifts can be for your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, mom, dad, friend, or even a close colleague. From flowers to an intimacy deck, we did some digging for that perfect Valentine's day gift for your SOS (someone special)!
A nice batch of flowers and a side of chocolates might sound cliché but flowers still win. It’s truly about the presentation. Sending a vase of flowers to her at work isn't uncommon but it's surely appreciated. She will least expect it and you will definitely get brownie points from her work colleagues. Alternatively, surprise her with flowers and rose petals around the house--create the perfect intimate setting. She will be shocked when she walks in and will appreciate the fact that you took the time to decorate the house for her.
Of course, she likes to smell good. Pay attention to her favorite perfume brands then purchase one that fits your budget. If you aren’t sure, a few good perfume brands are Lancôme La Vie est Belle, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette, and Chanel ‘Coco Mademoiselle’ Spray. If these aren’t within your budget, any vanilla-scented perfume is also a safe option such as the Vanille Eau de Toilette by L'Aromarine (which is my daily go-to).
Looking for that perfect pop of color? Our AfroVibes pillows will brighten up any room and are perfect for a trendy home. She will especially love the fact that they are super comfy!
Flavors of Africa Cookbook:
Does she love to cook? This cookbook by Evi Aki has a variety of different foods from Africa. It would be great to make some of these dishes together with her at home and hopefully, you'll be able to reap the edible benefits of this gift!
Smart Watches such as Fitbits and Letsfits are trendy and fashionable. They are also a great way to motivate that special someone to stay cognizant of their health. It would be best to get one for each of you so that you can exercise together and can even have friendly “Fitbit Challenges” such as tracking to see who can accumulate the most steps each day.
This gold or silver African pendant necklace makes for a lovely gift and she is sure to think of you each time she wears it. You could purchase this exact necklace or any classy necklace would do.
Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - Smart speaker with Alexa:
Is he a music lover? This gift will allow him to start the day off right as he listens to his favorite tunes while getting ready.
Of course, he likes to smell good too. Pay attention to his favorite cologne brands then purchase one that fits your budget. If you aren’t sure, a few good cologne brands are Yves Saint Laurent Men's L'HOMME Eau de Toilette Spray, Acqua di Giò Pour Homme Eau de Toilette Spray, and Versace Eros Eau de Toilette Spray for Men.
Our beanies are warm and fit just right! They are perfect for any style--whether he likes to be comfortable and chill or prefers to dress it up with a nice coat. These beanies are also unisex so get two and both of you could match in style.
iPhone Charger Keychain:
Thanks to this clever keychain, he will never have to worry about his phone dying on the go again. Of course, it's simple but it's the perfect practical gift.
Pull Up Bar:
Is he a fitness fanatic? A pull-up bar is perfect for the two of you to exercise at home together. The bar widens so it can wedge against the inside of any doorframe. Most of them also come with safety caps which gives it further support.
A timeless gift that is sure to leave a lasting impression is a watch. Think of a watch he could wear for work or even during a cool night out around town. Ensure anything you buy is within your budget yet still something he will cherish. A few affordale brands are Tissot, Seiko, and Citizen.
