6 Totally Unexpected Gifts to Give This Valentine’s Day

By Chandra Pepino For Belo Medical Group on February 5, 2021

Valentine’s Day approaches, and it’s approaching fast. But if you’re tired of giving your SO the usual hypebeast sneakers/video games/tech accessories he’s become accustomed to receiving over the years, here are six fresh ideas to elicit much more than just a standard “thank you, babe!” this hearts’ day.

  1. A toilet stool…and matching plunger.

OK, hear us out. Toilet stools actually help your man have easier and more satisfying, erm, bowel movements. “Your body relies on a bend in the colon (where your poop lives) and the anus (where your poop says hi) to keep everything stored until showtime. The posture of the [standard] toilet causes a kink in this tunnel, which leads to major blockage,” says Squatty Potty. For kicks, throw in their matching poop-themed plunger, and you’re sure to get a laugh. Get them here.

  1. A laser helmet that helps his hair grow back.

Is your SO’s hair thinning or balding? The Theradome Pro LH80 laser helmet is going to make them very, very happy. This state-of-the-art helmet device contains 80 proprietary lasers for optimal hair growth. It also helps increase blood flow in the scalp, allowing better absorption of the nutrients his hair needs to stop hair loss, thicken existing hair, and promote new hair growth. You can get it here.

  1. A foldable, keep-able bathtub.

If his apartment is too small or doesn’t come with a bathtub, but he loves to pamper himself, then this is going to be the best gift ever. Online shopping sites like Lazada and Shopee offer many kinds of adult-sized, foldable bathtubs (they even have drain holes so you don’t have to bother with a bucket afterwards). 

  1. A set of smart plugs so he never has to leave his bed again.

Smart plugs allow him to turn his plugged electronics on and off from an app on his phone, meaning he doesn’t have to get out of bed to turn a fan, PlayStation, or lamp on again. You might just create a monster, but he’ll love you for it. Get them at any Mi Store.

  1. A CD player that can be displayed or wall-mounted.

Is he a music lover? Better yet, does he prefer CDs, cassette tapes, and vinyl records to streaming? If he’s that kind of music lover, he’ll be obsessed with this remote-controlled Astronord CD Player that you can either lay down on a desk, prop up on a stand, or mount on the wall. It also functions as a Bluetooth speaker, FM radio, USB flash drive/micro SD MP3 player, and clock! Get it here.

  1. A nose hair trimmer.

Time to give it to him straight: when you look up and see nose hairs, it pretty much kills the mood. Send a subliminal message by giving this as a V-Day gift. (This type of gift only works if you’ve been in a relationship for a long time and are comfortable pointing things like this out!) Get it here.

When it comes to giving, it’s fun to go outside the box. We hope you enjoy exchanging gifts this V-Day!
