Try gifting the unusual way

V-DAY Special
Last Updated 13 February 2013, 16:22 IST

Some of you would be scratching your head and some would be even pulling their hair apart for want of different or unusual ideas on what would make for an ideal gift for your partner this Valentine’s Day. Roses perish before long and hearts are broken by the time the next Valentine’s Day rolls around.

To lessen confusion, Metrolife suggests a few options that will make your partner feel that your gift was not just special but also unusual. The idea of proposing on this day is good but add a little adventure to the amorous atmosphere and try it at a height. A hot air balloon ride at around 90 ft above ground, will only add to the charm. This special feature can be availed at Pacific Mall, Tagore Garden and Worlds of Wonder, Noida.

The setting decided, now is the time to gift. If your partner is the kind who gets really excited at the sight of a soft toy, then do not disssapoint her, and do the needful in the unconventional way. Opt for a designer teddy bear and make her go gaga over your choice. While a Satya Paul creation defining a male and female teddy bear will woo your loved one, a Manav Gangwani creation (of a Teddy bear in pink) will have you revisiting your childhood once more.

Those who are married or about to be, can add spice to their relationship by ordering a Naughty plus Nice Valentine box online. This box contains an assortment of products announced by a lingerie brand. While men can express their undercover emotions with hassle-free shopping, women can surprise their partners too!

The boxes are arranged such that if there is a baby-doll in your gift box, you will also find a pair of animal print handcuffs! “Men prefer to buy sexy lingerie for their partner on special occasions. We noticed this trend as we have been receiving an increasing number of calls from customers. Gone are the days where picking the perfect combination for that special someone was extremely tedious and hard to get right,” said Monica Anand, CEO, Undercover Lingerie.

This is all very well but, if you have recently turned from being in relationship to a single again, do not feel left out this Valentine. The best way to economise is to sell the gifts received from your partner last year! This is cheap, but is worth a try specially if there is a provision by websites such as Be it electronic or accessories, everything can be sold to transform the old memories of the ex into earnings that can be splurged on the new! Go ahead, take your pick.
