4 Unique Gifts for Him for a more “Vivo” Valentine’s Day Couple Pic

V-day gift giving game is not anymore about how expensive the gift is. It is now more of which is a more unique kind of present. Here are four not-so-common, yet still love-evoking gift ideas for him this Valentine’s season.

With social media helping to broadcast your love to your significant other this Valentine’s Day, the V-day gift giving game is not anymore about how expensive the gift is. It is now more of which is a more unique kind of present. Here are four not-so-common, yet still love-evoking gift ideas for him this Valentine’s season.

A Pot of Herbs


Your man may not be comfortable receiving flowers from you. Hence, a pot of herbs would be equally thoughtful yet longer lasting. Basil, for example, can be really savory when one is cooking a pasta for dinner (even instant noodles) or a therapeutic tea for cough and colds. How would you feel, he prepares a meal for you the next time you visit his place using these? Other herbs could also be mint, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, or oregano.

ALTERNATIVE: Cactus or Bonsai for his office desk or study table.

Wine-infused Chocolates

imageSprinkling a more masculine appeal to a classic Valentine’s Day gift, opt for spirit-infused chocolates. This twist is just as tasty as its after effect. Even non-alcohol drinkers will enjoy the succulent flavors made even more romantic with booze. Whiskey and Bourbon infused chocolate bars are the most popular, but so are the subtler ones like Red Wine and Chocolate Kahlua.

TRY: Dark cherry rum chocolate from Tina’s Treats

Grooming Kit


imageYou love your man well groomed every time you strike a couple selfie! Thus, a grooming kit for him is such a useful gift. A basic grooming kit usually contains a high-quality wooden comb, a pot of pomade perfumed subtly with musk, and a vial of beard oil which works wonders when your man is contemplating growing a neat beard. Fragrances are also in the kit and even a small bottle of shampoo to complement the comb-pomade essentials.

ALTERNATIVE: A membership card on a high-end barber shop like the CHOI DEAL CARD.

“VIVO” Valentines Vibe


For all your adventures and milestones, make Vivo V7 a part of it. Vivo V7 proves that big things come in small packages. The V7, much like its predecessor, the equally dynamic V7+, reinforces Vivo’s leadership in selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera, which produces above-quality selfies—perfect for those romantic date nights. By keeping true-to-life color and contrast and a clear background at all times, V7 allows users to express themselves practically anytime, anywhere at their whim. The V7’s smart photography algorithms generate crystal-clear, natural-looking photos. To complement the V7’s powerful camera feature, the Beauty 7.0 feature brightens up selfies and creates a more even complexion, even in dimly-lit environments. Portrait Mode in the V7 adds background blurring for sharper contrast and visual appeal to generate stylish selfies equivalent to those from DSLR cameras. But that’s not all. The V7 also rocks a 5.7” all-screen display with an 83.6% screen to body ratio that would normally house a 5.2-inch screen, offering 12.5% more visual display area compared to traditional 16:9 screens. This V7 feature enhances consumers’ visual experience, a perfect element to satisfy this generation’s very visual demographic. Lastly, this smartphone’s security spec is super secure with its revolutionary finger-print lock feature.
