1122Valentine’s Day is all about making others feel loved, and celebrating love in all its forms.

A lot of boyfriends and husbands are sure to go for the standards–a bouquet of flowers, or a box of chocolates.

But instead of buying cliche gifts for Valentine’s Day, why not go out of the way to give your special someone something that has no expiration date, and will last for more than the day it takes for flowers to wither?

Here are a few practical, last-minute gifts you can give your special someone this Valentine’s Day:

1. For the health-conscious

Love is not always about surprising your other one with grand things and expensive buys, sometimes love can also be expressed by showing some concern–whether it’s about their health or whatnot.

A portable blender is one of the things you can buy your health-conscious special someone. Easy to use as it only one button away to a fresh smoothie, it can also encourage users to start drinking healthy drinks. It’s also a time-saver, and can help in whipping up quick meals.

2. For people that love to cook

If your partner is into food and dining out, perhaps it will be nice to take food addiction to another level! Buy a cookbook that is filled with scrumptious recipes so you two can learn to cook your own lunch or dinner for a romantic date in the balcony. That way, you make something out of your precious time learning new things with each other.

4. For those who always feel cold

If you want to keep your partner warm while you’re not around, buy a good-quality coat or blanket. This is perfect for times when you can’t be around to offer them some much-needed comfort and warmth–or those times that it’s just too cold for your warm hugs to be enough.
