HEY LOVE BUG: Unique gift ideas for your Valentine

It’s February and it’s officially Valentine’s month.

Whether you’ve got a partner to celebrate with or not, you’re going to be surrounded with the color red and love heart shapes for the next couple of weeks.

We know the struggles that guys and girls endure when shopping around for the perfect gift. Looking for something with the perfect balance of thoughtfulness and sexy isn’t as easy as it sounds and, these days, people don’t just want to settle for a box of chocolates and a rose from Target!

So you need some Valentine’s Day gift inspiration? Look no further, love bugs! We’ve got some ideas.

Bralettes. The tradition lingerie gifts are so last year! It’s all about the sexy bralette. The only bad thing about getting your girl a bralette? The amount of choices you have.

Customized Jewellery. Don’t rule jewellery out of the picture if Diamonds aren’t in your price range. You can get adorable customized jewellery that say so much. Get a significant date engraved onto a ring, or a little message on a bracelet!

Baked Goods. A girl loves to eat – there’s no denying it. When it’s sweet and from their significant other, it becomes much more special. Take the time to bake something yourself and give it your own personal touch.

FOR HIM

Tickets to their favorite band. Are you loved up enough to see your partner’s weird favorite band with them? If so, then this is the perfect thoughtful gift that gives back.

Cologne. How do you want your man to smell like? Tom Ford? Maybe a bit of Versace? This is a gift that is sexy and something that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves. Win, win!

Man Candle. Yep, they exist. And they probably smell better than your boyfriends’ apartment right now.
