Not In Love? Anti-V-Day Gifts Under INR 1,000 To Celebrate Anyway!

Ugh, it’s that time of the year when there’s an excessive amount of mush, candies, teddy bears, and bouquets of roses. The romantics are already gearing up for another round of cheesiness courtesy our budget V-Day gifts guide, but this one is for those who despise this capitalist holiday. Here’s our round-up of gifts to give the folks in your life (or yourself) who really don’t give a damn about this oh-so-festive day. Oh, and just make sure to swipe through the pictures!

Statement Tees

Nothing like wearing what’s on your mind on a tee, right? With multiple places in Bangalore selling tees, check out La Bamba Fashions which makes customised tees so you can get one printed for yourself and your friend. Mad'u' is another brand from where you can score fun tees at super affordable prices. With your favourite quotes from Rick and Morty, Breaking Bad and even the Marvel films, this is a great gifting idea.

Instead of posting about how commercial or cheesy you find V-Day, get yourself or your bae who totally gets you, posters. Poster Gully is a brand that makes art prints to full-fledged designs of every genre possible. You can just hang them on the walls because they all come laminated and don't have to worry about getting it framed.
