7 Perfect Valentine gifts, K-drama style
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought we'd help you gather some ideas for what to buy the special someone in your life. Inspired by our favorite K-dramas, we've picked some items that will be sure to bring a smile to your face. From high end to frugal budgets, we have something for everyone! What are you hoping for this Valentine's Day?
1. A box of perfectly made chocolate truffles
In Boys Over Flowers, Geum Jan Di makes these amazing chocolates for Goo Joon Pyo. If you want to make something really special for your loved one, make homemade chocolates. If you want to go a step further, shape them to look like your sweetheart. Even if they end up looking a bit wonky, the thoughtfulness and effort behind it will be greatly appreciated!
2. A piece of jewelry that is meaningful
How sweet was it in Pinocchio when Choi Dal Po gave Choi In Ha the lucky button from his shirt? Even cuter was that she made it into a necklace. Pick something meaningful to you and make it into a piece of jewelry. Or else buy Choi In Ha's necklace here.
3. A stuffed animal
Everyone knows and loves the pig doll from My Lovely Sam Soon. Get your loved one a cute, oversized stuffed animal to have him or hersquealing with delight. Or for your true K-drama fans, get the replica pig doll from here.
4. A hand warmer
Hand warmers are a super fun accessory and pop up in a lot of K-dramas. I particularly love the hand warmer above from Tomorrow's Cantabile and would be ecstatic if I got it for Valentine's Day. If you want to get something similar for your loved one, check out this one that first showed up on Heirs.
5. A matching couple outfit
Why not buy a gift for both of you? Pick out a matching couple outfit. You could go the whole shebang, or you could tone it down and getting matching Asics like Cha Eun Sang and Kim Tan do in Heirs. Go for a super exciting color like these pink ones. You'll be sure to stand out.
6.A Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (the phone of every K-drama ever)
Have a big budget and want to get them something that will last? Go for a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. If there is one item that I covet every time I watch a K-drama, it is this phone. It just looks so cool.
7. A vacation
If you're not into buying "stuff" but still want to treat your special someone, pick a vacation. For the higher budgets, go somewhere tropical. Who wouldn't want to go somewhere warm in this cold weather? For the more frugally minded, a vacation doesn't have to be major. Book a hotel for a couple of nights, or find a weekend resort near a ski hill. Even if you don't go skiing, spending the weekend by the fire lounging could be the perfect cure for the winter blues.
