Small gifts like personalized mugs, calendars, chocolates, mithai, can be sent at different times of the day by ordering the gifts online. This can build excitement, and keeps the Valentine guessing about what’s next.

Choose a fancy bottle of wine or champagne online, and send it across as a celebration token.
- Plan the main gift
The main gift should be exquisite. For those planning to propose, nothing is more exquisite than a ring. However, for others, any piece of exquisite jewellery available online makes a good gift. For guys, usually a utility gift that they have been wanting for long can be a great gift.

Sweets are mandatory. A surprise cake ordered online and delivered at the date venue will make things more special.
Not many think of a closure. A parting gift like a box of valentine chocolates, a branded perfume or a midnight bouquet of roses telling the valentine that the date was special will be a perfect closure for the well-planned date.
Valentine’s Day is a special day and making it special for a valentine with special gestures, creative ideas and perfect planning is key.
