Last minute V-Day gifts!
It’s already past 6 pm this Tuesday evening, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and you still have no idea what you’re going to gift that special person in your life! Here are my top 5 gifts you can still get your hands on and they’re definitely be a hit 😉
1) Makeup usually goes down very well with the ladies. Even if you don’t know the difference between a mascara and a lipstick, Sephora has some great gift sets which are easy on the pocket as well.Like this gift set from Tarte combines an eye shadow pallete, eyeliner, lipstick, mascara, blush and highlighter pallete. It’s called the Treasure Box Collector’s set and will cost you 295 DHS. Sephora also does some really nice customised gift wraping.
2) Gift a star! This one has been on the mush train for quite a few years now but you can totally bring it back as your romantic gesture this year.
You can name a star or a constellation. You can also pick any name you want! It’s valid for a lifetime, all you need to do is head to this website http://www.star-register.com/ You might not get your star certificate right away but he or she is going to LOVE the thought!
3) Sneaker attack! Sneakers made a huge come back in 2017 and in 2018, I’m happy to report that the trend continues to be a favourite – this is for men and women. The Superstar sneakers from Adidas cool and come in all kinds of colours. They’ll cost you around 275 DHS.
4) Doodle your way into her/his heart! If you’re a bit bored with the usual chocolates and flowers routine, go to this website http://www.thelittlebigthings.me/ You can get a really cute and adorable doodle done of the two of you and I can bet anything this gift will stand apart!
5) If you want to be a bit extravagant, my favourite pick is a poloroid camera! Even though cameras are getting a whole lot more sophisticated, there is something wonderful about taking pictures using a poloroid – these can be ordered on https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/poloroid-camera/s/? as=1 and they have same day delivery as well. These will cost you 500 DHS and up though!
