Things not to buy

These are a few things that you should avoid gifting your date. After all, no one likes getting utility-based knick-knacks or worse still, a deodorant to suggest he/she has a body odour.

From cuddly cushions to TV sets, books to deodorants — all these buys just shouldn’t feature in your gift list

Clever Bunny

If the usual gifts bore you, how about gifting your loved one a star or a gift voucher? Also a date at the spa or a love letter are things that your beloved will definitely like. Think out-of-the-box and make your V-Day memorable
