For the millionth time, getting your boyfriend a gadget is not the brightest idea in the bucket. There are birthday gifts and Christmas gifts and whatever other celebration gifts, but we feel that gifts for Valentine’s Day should be a little more special and memorable. Here are some gifts we’d like to give and receive ourselves this Valentine’s Day.
The gift of relaxation
Gift: Weekend stay at Dusun
Price: RM400 (weekdays) or RM500 (weekends) per night
Where to Get: Dusun
Valentine’s Day is about both you and your partner so it’s only right that you get a gift which both of you can enjoy. If distance is an issue, then we highly recommend The Dusun, located only an hour from Kuala Lumpur where you’ll get to indulge in the best nature has to offer. Stay in Malay style chalets that come equipped with a barbeque pit, herb garden and a pool, all uniquely designed and are located out of sight from the others. You can choose to stay in all weekend or explore nearby markets, waterfalls or go jungle trekking.
The gift of memories
Gift: Canvas Prints
Price: From RM158 onwards
Where to get: Wedoo.com.my
We’re sure that as a couple you’ve both taken many many pictures together whether it’s on you Blackberry or your DSLR. Turn those photos into wallpaper material by having them printed and framed up as vibrant, long lasting canvas prints. Alternatively, you could make him a photobook filled with all the pictures you’ve both shot together!
The gift of theatre
Gift: Tickets to the Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr by The Actors Studio & KLPac
Where to get: The Actor’s Studio (tickets have yet to go on sale but you can give your sweetie an IOU coupon first!)
If literature was never your strength back in school, then this 90 minute satirical crash course of William Shakespeare’s 36 plays will enlighten and humor you, the perfect date setting we reckon. The play was first performed in 1987 and then at the Criterion Theatre in London where it ran for 9 record breaking years and is now one of the world’s most popular shows. Watch the play at KLPac from the 21-25th of March 2012 with actors Charles Donnelly, Kingsley Judd and homegrown Gavin Yap promising to keep you laughing all night long.
The gift of experience
Gift: Originalo Gift Box
Where to get: Originalo
