In this ultimate post, I will be sharing all the gift ideas I can assure you people will love to receive.

This is 2020 people. We are no more buying singlet and boxers for our men(i hear a lot of men complaining that those are what they usually get all the time. So not cool) and buying just roses and chocolate for the ladies( very basic and cliche)

If you decide to go with any of my ideas and purchase it, your loved one will be happy. You will be happy because they are happy, they will be happy because the gift you bought them made them happy and I will be happy because my post helped you to make them happy. Everybody wins!

This is a gift guide for him and her so you should expect two sections.

Gift Guide For him

Boys, in general, will prefer something that they can use all the time or something they know they can use their own money to buy. It can also be something they have been wanting to get but couldn’t maybe because they don’t have enough funds to purchase it or they don’t know where to get it or even something that matches their lifestyle or goes well with their hobbies, etc.

Here are a few things you should consider buying them:

Have you seen any guy that isn’t obsessed with watches? Getting him a nice one will surely make his day. Here are some inexpensive brands;





Shoes are very good gifts. All you have to know is your man’s size and preference. Does he like sneakers or sandals more?


This is among the top 5 gifts you can ever give him. Is he obsessed with Barcelona or arsenal? Oh, he is into basketball? Is his favorite team the golden state warriors or Miami heat? Just get him one.

Do you want him to wife you up right away? Get it customized with his name at the back of it. Thank me later.

Game console or video game CD’s

This will be a bit pricey but it will be worth it. If your man is still using Xbox, be the light in his life and get him a plays station 5. Who still uses Xbox though? Also, get him the CD’s as well. I Don’t know much but I know he needs FIFA 21!


This is basic but it can be the perfect gift when you wrap it up and add a little note to it. And did I mention they are affordable in the departmental store? Here are some clothing ideas:



Plain shirts



Ankle socks


Gift Guide For her

When it comes to buying gifts for your girlfriend, wife, side chick, etc, you HAVE to be creative.

Girls love love love cute and DIY gifts. Don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get her something she will love.

I will be listing gift ideas and creative gift ideas as well.

Gift ideas


Honestly, whatever you plan on getting for her won’t be complete without a bouquet by the side.

Flowers are so amazing and very romantic as well. There are so many Instagram vendors that sell them or you can

simply get them from the flower shop next to your house.

If you want to be a little more unique, get her the rose Teddy. It’s roses, placed perfectly to form the shape of a Teddy bear. I Don’t know about her but I will cry if I get that one day.

Teddy bears:

Teddy bears are an excellent cute little gift you can get your girl. They are inexpensive and very unique.

X reasons why I love you:

Here you can choose any number of reasons (e.g 100 reasons, 20 reasons why I love you) and write one reason on each little paper and wrap it up and place it in a jar. don’t forget to decorate it. Here are some things you will need:

CHECK OUT:  I quit social media for a month. here's what happened.

Colorful pens

Papers of different colors

Cute stickers

A transparent jar

Washi tapes( for deco)

Ribbons(for deco)

Picture board/book:

Grab all your favorite pictures of her and you both together from your phone, laptop and print them out. Place them nicely on a board or book with cute notes here and there.

Picture of both of you on a throw pillow or shirt:

This is self-explanatory. Go get your picture printed on it and wrap it up nicely.

Write a letter to her:

This is very cliche but try it and watch her keep that piece of paper with her forever! It’s very romantic and I’m sure she will surely love it.

Write a song for her or a poem:

This will need extra talent but it works like magic!

Earn your cashback while shopping

I never thought it was possible to earn your cashback as you shop till I learned about Ebates.

Ebates is a shopping network that brings a lot of your favorite stores(Amazon, Walmart, Macy, Kohl’s, etc) together under one roof.

When you shop through them, you get the chance you earn a large percentage of your cashback. How amazing is that? This means you will be able to save even more while shopping for Valentine’s Day.

I have a special code for you if you want to try it out. If you spend $25, you will get it all back and earn even more when you buy more! How crazy is that? Don’t hurt your pockets and start shopping with Ebates!


This is one of the longest posts I have ever written. I wanted to be as detailed as possible and give you as many ideas as I can think of. I hope this gave you some great gift ideas.

Have you used any of my ideas above or you’re planning on using one? Please do let me know in the comments section. It will make my day.
