We don’t mean to brag, but we’re really good gift givers. We put in a lot of thought and time into our gifts, plus our jobs really help the task at hand as well. Unfortunately, not everybody is clued in to what we want. To every girl who doesn’t want another ugly stuffed toy this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got a gift guide you should send to your partner. We promise you won’t be disappointed by this made-in-Singapore list.
For The Traditional Valentine: Roses from You And No Other
If you’re a sucker for the traditional roses and you’re also quite the jealous type, have your partner get you flowers from a new start-up called You And No Other. Instead of the usual florist, You And No Other play the fidelity police role – each customer can send flowers to only one person for the rest of his, or her life. To make sure that their customers don’t cheat, algorithms check a sender’s details against those in the firm’s database. In the case that someone tries to send flowers under a different name, to a different recipient but does so from the same address or with the same credit card for instance, a red flag pops up and the sender will get a call…
For The One Who Wants A New Outfit Everyday: A Dress from Stolen
Sure you can do the usual cut-down-to-there dress for Valentine’s Day, but do yourself a favour and try something a little more subtle and a whole lot sexier for a change. Have your Valentine pick up a piece from local brand Stolen. Known for their penchant to show off a woman’s back, they’ve got breezy pieces great for hot days in Singapore, to sweltering evenings dancing the night away.
For The Girl With A Sweet Tooth: Anything from Janice Wong’s Pop-Up
Chef Janice Wong lets you indulge your sweet tooth at her pop-up store right outside Sephora in ION Orchard (lipstick and chocolate?! Gasp!) till 14 February, and obviously that’s for good reason. From eclairs to heart-shaped chocolates, you can’t go wrong here.
For The Instagram Foodie: A Cooking Class at ToTT
If all you’ve been doing is dragging your partner to hipster cafes to try the latest brunch offerings in town, why not try your hand at whipping up a meal instead? We’re eyeing this Japanese pastry class, and for singles, there’s even a speed dating cooking class!
For The Beauty Junkie: Skin Inc’s Optimizer Voyage
Headquartered-in-Singapore brand Skin Inc recently launched their Optimizer Voyage, a device that helps boost absorption of products into your skin and helps lift and firm the skin with regular use. Definitely a gadget we want this Valentine’s.
