Somehow your 2018 last ditch effort worked, and you managed to convince someone that you’re the relationship type. Congratulations, we couldn’t be happier for you. Really.
You’re barely half a month into your relationship, right smack in the honeymoon phase, and everything is still blissfully perfect. But in less than a month, it’s going to be Valentine’s Day, the day of the year that people celebrate love. It's your first Valentine's together and you want to make a solid impression. You need to show you’re not a basic, unimaginative dude, and that she made the right decision to be in a relationship with you.
But you can chill, bro, because we’ve got your back. Here are the best possible gift and date ideas that you can get for you and your new love.
Seriously. Even if you’re a macho dude who likes motorbikes and heavy metal, you can’t deny that wearing this with your girl is definitely the cutest thing. They’re snug and with just the right amount of fur to keep you comfy and adorable with your special someone. Snooze PH can help you with that.
You know you want it. Couple mugs may be a tradition for every single couple now, but that doesn’t mean it’s basic or unoriginal. It’s thoughtful and personalized. That’s what counts. And it romantically upgrades your relationship to a serious level. Look no further than Mug Shop Manila for your customized mugs.
Your first photo as a couple
Sure, you take selfies or have waiters take pictures of you when you eat out, but it’s just not the same when you’re in a photo booth with your special someone. You can freely pose in whatever manner you want, so please keep it sweet and wholesome. Timezone’s the easiest place to accomplish this, so remember to take her there.
Alunsina Handbound Books offer a lot of customizable leather journals that are perfect for artistic couples. You can choose from a variety of leather colors and designs. Hey, you can even have your name soldered on them.
It won’t cost you a thing except for your heart and soul. If you don’t have a budget, which is fine btw, you can gift your love to her instead by making a playlist on Spotify. There are a zillion love songs on there, so pick some that really reminds you of her, the first time you met, your first date, and all that.
A spa date
There may be nothing better than a relaxing day in a spa with your special someone. I’M Onsen Spa offers the best massages and specific treatments for your stress-relieving needs. On the other hand, you can stay at home, buy some oil, and massage each other.
Watch a play
Sure, you can never go wrong with a movie date, but you would definitely wow her with a play date. No, we’re not talking about kids’ playdates. We’re referring to watching an actual play or musical on stage, in person, not through a screen. Resorts World Manila usually have them scheduled early, so you can choose from those now.
Go on a hike
Instantly feel like Thanos after Avengers: Infinity War and sit on top of a mountain. Go on a hike with your special someone to show her how adventurous you can be and that you’re not some city-slowpoke who can’t even reach the summit of Mt. Batulao. You can do this.
Somewhere like The Peninsula Manila would be the ideal staycation. Pack some clothes for swimming and enjoy each other’s company over a few days under the sun. You have a hotel room all to yourselves so you can spend the night having deep conversations about your unremarkable existence in the galaxy.
