It is that time of the year again where every company, especially the ones in gifting, is stepping out of its comfort zones to offer creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas for husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends and every other romantic relationship. Some brands are attempting to introduce new trends of encouraging Valentine’s Day gifting among colleagues and friends too to capitalize on this gesture of love.
A quick glance at some of the prominent online gifting companies in India will introduce you to a plethora of creative Valentine’s Day ideas you didn’t know were possible. “Our orders begin in January where we mostly cater to women looking for Valentine’s Day ideas for husband. The closer we get to February 14th, the buying audience evolves to husbands and boyfriends looking for romantic gifts for their wives and girlfriends, usually on a last-minute basis” says an employee from a leading online gifting company in India called Oye Happy.
A quick survey of a few gifting companies took us on a virtual tour of really quirky Valentine’s Day gifts starting at Rs.299 to premium and luxury gift ideas going up to Rs.6 lakhs. As per research, most married men looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas for their wives are the biggest spenders on creative gifts such as hampers and romantic ideas such as poolside dinners and private aircrafts. Women looking to gift their husbands, on the other hand, prefer picking nostalgic gifts using words and photographs or romantic gestures such as cabanas and balloons.
