If you’re panicking that Valentine’s Day is a few days away and you still haven’t bought a gift for your other half, leave the daunting task to us!

Let’s start with the ladies…


Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! If you’re looking for budget-friendly brands, you can go with the likes of Tamima Jewelry, LAIÉN, Liberte, and Dorado. Alternatively, if you’d like to dig further into your bank account, there are Dima JewelleryJude BenhalimAzza Fahmy, and Laila Wahba to choose from.

Skincare Kit

If you’re looking for a ready-to-buy, upscale pamper hampers, head to The Body Shop or Bath & Body Works, but if you want to opt for local beauty products, Source Beauty is the ultimate destination.


You can never go wrong with a purse! Budget-friendly options include Shakhalil, Sekhmet, and Dodici, while pricier ones are from Omnis Clutch, Okhtein, and Aleil.

Care package

Who doesn’t love a care package? A favourite snack here, cute pictures there, and a few little bits and bobs like socks and face masks will surely impress your beloved! Pick one up from Giftopia and The Giftery.


Some may say perfume is more of a last-minute present, but we beg to differ. Our picks are Giorgio Armani Si Black, Opium Black, and Chanel Allure, which you can find at Mazaya Store.


As for the gentlemen…

Card Holder

Wallets are near to being extinct, and the new trend is cardholders – engraved with his initials would be cherry on top! You can find cardholders at Yashry and Ego, but if you want a personalised one, you can find them at Mont Blanc in City Stars.


You can say a lot about a man from his watch, which you can also find at Yashry and Ego.


Do we spot the sun making a comeback? Soon enough, it will be summer again! Grab a pair of shades for your loved one from Nile Eyewear, Posh Shades, and Magrabi.


Fresh new kicks will have him walking extra miles for you! You’ll find comfortable shoes at Shoes Egypt and Shoes Brands Store.


Surprise him with his favourite smell, which is a win-win situation! Our picks of perfumes are Dior Sauvage, Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani, and Y by YSL, which you can find at Mazaya Store.
