Is your man a watch lover? If so, a watch box is the perfect gift to store his collection in. For a dash of classiness, opt to customise the box with his name or initial; we can’t get any more Kingsman than that.

Whether he’s a fan of Marvel or DC (let’s be honest, you’re still trying to figure out the difference), a collector’s comic will satisfy the child in him. It may be on the costly side, but the look of geniue surprise and happiness as he unwraps the gift will be worth it.
P.S Do remember to have him be gentle with the gift when unwrapping; you don’t want to risk ruining the comic book.
“Open When…” Letters

A thoughtful and meaningful gift, do pen down series of letters and have him open them when the occasion arises. For instance, the letter for your first fight, the letter when you’re about to become parents, and more. This gift may not be as practical as the others, it’s sentimental value is just as high and if not, higher.

It may be a go-to anniversary gift for her, but we can’t deny a woman’s love for accessories. Instead of the usual white/rose gold jewellery piece, surprise her with a colourful gemstone. Better yet, opt for a gemstone that symbolises her birth month for some brownie points.

For better or for worse, your vows will serve as a good reminder of the commitment and promises that you’ve made for your partner. Do consider framing your vows and present the frame as a thoughtful gift.

Time to get crafty! If you’re artistically inclined, we suggest to pick up that paint brush and create a one-of-a-kind portrait. Not so much a Picasso? You may consider engaging a professional to do so.

If jewellery is your partner’s best friend, a jewellery box will be an ideal gift, for her to keep her bling organised. Similar to the watch box, do consider customising the box with her name or initials for an added touch of personalisation.
