Less than 24 hours to go before we celebrate Valentine’s Day! Although I am aware that it has been heavily commercialized throughout the year so businesses can sell more products through sweet gimmicks, it’s still nice to receive a gift and give something back to your loved ones. However, take note that love shouldn’t only be celebrated once every year! With this in mind, I thought of giving you a look at my personalized gift for my special someone. Hopefully, you’d find this helpful in curating your own little box of goodies that can last for a month (or more).
The best part? You can save more when you purchase these items during the Month of Love. Meiji will be offering discounts up to 40% off until February 15, while Perfetti Van Melle products (Mentos, Chupa Chups, etc.) will be on 15% off on the same date. They’ll also be offering freebies for every 2 bundles of Melody Pops towards the end of the month!
What’s inside my box?
My boyfriend loves strawberry-flavored sweets and Japanese treats, so I filled a box with his favorites. And yes, guys deserve to receive some gifts, too! I’m sure they’ll be surprised because it’s almost always the ladies who receive presents. I also reserved a couple for my family so they can literally taste the sweetness of February while we work from home.
Inside my box are Chupa Chups Jellies (Cola — my personal favorite that I love sharing with others, Pinkis Mini – my boyfriend’s favorite, Sour Bites and Sour Belts — another personal favorite of mine that I always look for when we’re together, and Panda Bears for that classic gummy taste), Mentos products (Mentos Minis, Mentos Circus Fun Roll, and assorted Mentos Pure Fresh) which helps him stay awake during work hours, and a couple of Meiji products (Galbo Chocolate, Lucky Stick, Classic Meiji Milk Chocolate Bar, and more).
Aside from the ones above, I also saw Chupa Chups Melody Pops being sold in sets of five! I used to buy that every time we drop by convenience stores but it became harder to find them in stalls. Good thing I found ’em via Shopee!!
For more Valentine’s gift ideas, you can check out deals up to 90% off via this page: https://shopee.ph/m/valentines-deals-youll-love. I personally suggest throwing in a bouquet of flowers with your sweet treats! If your significant other isn’t a fan of flowers, a cute little plant that s/he can take care of would be a good gift, too.
In terms of delivery, the products mentioned above can be shipped via Express Delivery — Shopee’s fastest delivery option at the moment. Products will be delivered straight to your or your loved one’s doorstep in just one to three days.
But remember, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about eating good food and getting gifts. The most important part is that you get to spend the day with your loved ones even for just a few hours. Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year and I’m sure a lot of people would be busy at work. When all things fail, a simple greeting and sweet message will also do! You and your special someone still have the rest of the year to celebrate anyway! 🙂
