Just Realised It's Valentine's Day? Here Are Some Last Minute Gifts You Can Pick Up

Just realised it’s Valentine’s Day and don’t have time for an extravagant gift? Here are some last minute things you can pick up.

Flower Power

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like a bunch of red roses. Order online or buy from the street shops. The roads are also sprinkled liberally with vendors selling flowers at signals and major crossings (the AJC Bose Road flyover crossings especially) if you want to pick up flowers on-the-go.

    Date Night

    Be uber prepared for date night. Hit up the several restaurants and cafes having the best Valentine’s Day menus, deals and offers. There’s going to be a lot of heart-shaped food and red velvet offerings up for grabs. From to heart-shaped pizzas to candlelight dinners, you'll get it all.

    Little Knick Knacks

    One of the easiest and most thoughtful presents is putting together a couple of knick knacks in hampers. Aranya in Dakhinapan is a great store to hit as a last-minute one-stop-shop for any gifting crisis. Everything from wooden crafts and enamelware, to home decor and coasters, to jewelry and bags, there are tons of things for every budget you’ll find in this one-of-a-kind store.

    Celebrate Love Every Day

    If you didn’t have time to do something special today {seriously, Cupid, did you HAVE to choose the middle of the week?}, you can surprise bae with plans for the future. Nothing adds to romance like being excited for a trip or an adventure. There are lots of awesome things you can do in the city.

    If You Like It, You Should Have Put A Ring On It

    Need to pick up some exquisite jewelry at bargain prices? New Market has a range of silver stores you can hit. Navigate your way to Nahoums and it’s probably just a 100m walk from there. You’ll find a row of stores, the most popular of which are Chamba Lama and Asian Arts where you can pick up everything from elaborate neck pieces to fake nose rings.
