The smallest token or trinket can mean a whole lot more than it looks—but it never hurts to scheme up an awesome and grand gift to show your loved ones that you’ve got it figured out, you know what day it is, and you’re not shy to show displays of affection. 

Ahead we’ve rounded up gift ideas—all on special deals this month—for all the people in your life (dads, moms, sibs, bffs, and beyond) because you might be feeling extra generous in extending and spreading your love this year. Yay for you! 

For mom: Jewelry from Karat World

Super sweet, sentimental, and solid gold: a slam-dunk piece of jewelry from Karat World doesn’t need to do much else to impress. Three picks you can choose from—all at 40% off. 

This pair of HQZ 14K White Gold Earrings GE-14009 with a push-back design decorated with high-quality zircon that you can score for P9,444 instead of P15,740. 

This stunning Gold Ring Ladies GRL-5163 in 18-karat yellow gold that’s also adorned with zircons for P22,203 instead of P37,005. 

And this 18KT HQZ White & Yellow Gold Ring Ladies GRL-5569 crafted with an overlapping design and high-quality zircon for P7,191 instead of P11,985. 

For little misses and misters: Cute plushies from Miniso

All at 10% off from February 10 to 16, these Miniso plushies will give all the cozies to the kids on your list. They’re even appropriate for your valentine to cuddle and snuggle with when you’re out of town, letting them feel like you never left. 

If they’re a fan of the misadventures of brothers Grizzly, Panda, and Ice Bear from We Bare Bears, pick up the We Bare Bear Lying Plush Toy Grizzly for only P269 (before P299) or the We Bare Bear Cute Plush Toy Ice Bear for P359 (before P399). 

A dessert plushie for your sweets like the Yummy Yummy Food Series Strawberry Plush Toy in Pink sounds just about right especially if they love anything kawaii, pastel, and strawberry-themed. Shop this yummy cuddle buddy for only P269 (before P299). 

For besties: Sweet-smelling fragrances

An intimate gift for everyone in your gang—these scents at slashed prices from Miniso and Ian Darcy. Gifting fragrances is perfect since they’re ultra-personal and long-lasting enough to use on heavy rotation. Smell’s also strongly tied to memory, with the ability to transport us back to a time, place, or person in one whiff, so each bottle below will be an awesome commemorative present for the 14th. 

For your best guy friend, we suggest scooping up the Miniso Rebellious Men's Perfume 40ml at 10% off (now only P314 from P349). Not too strong and pungent and smells natural, with top notes of citrusy bergamot and refreshing mint combined with middle notes of lavender, iris, geranium, and tonka bean. It’s finally finished off with base notes of sandalwood, vetiver, and cypress wood. 

For your ride-or-die, get the Miniso Flipped Lady Perfume, a long-lasting fragrance that your girl friend can wear from day to night. It features bergamot, apple, and black currant for a fruity-flirty scent that smells crisp and fresh. Shop for only P269 from P299. P.S. Both Miniso scents are on a 10% discount from February 10 to 16. 

Three Ian Darcy Perfume 100ml bottles for only P1,100 (from P1,140)? Yup! This scented trio at 4% off is fitting for your whole barkada. Each bottled up fragrance features oil-rich scents imported all the way from France and take their cues from signature notes from international perfume brands. The best part? They’re all long-lasting and won’t break bank. 

For dad: Apple Watch

If your pops has an iPhone, the Apple Watch is the best wearable to go with it. But which version should you buy for him? We break three picks down to the basics:

A (PRODUCT)RED variant’s perfect if your dad loves bold colors and not afraid to express himself. Opt for the Gold Stainless Steel version for a more classic and timeless look, something to wear during the day and flex at night. 

Both these versions are from Apple’s newly launched Series 8 watches, which means they now sport an Always-On Retina LTPO OLED display with up to 1000x nits of brightness, are water-resistant up to 50 meters, and carry health-check capabilities like a Blood Oxygen app, ECG app, high and low heart rate notifications, and irregular rhythm notifications.
