Ahh, Valentine's Day. The one day of the year when lovers scramble for the perfect gift for their partner. Rows of streetside florists pop on every corner, with long, snaking queues of hopeless romantics hoping to win over the apple of their eye with beautiful bouquets of red roses, chocolates, and other Valentine's Day staples.
Nothing screams "I love you" more than any of these gifts. But what about new Valentine's Day gift ideas that actually involve something other than the all-too-familiar roses and chocolates?
This February 14, why not show just how much your woman means to you with exquisitely unique Valentine's Day gifts? From cloud curlers and silk pillowcases to volumiser brushes, you're sure to make her Valentine's Day gift last longer than a week.
Give your significant other a reason to appreciate you this February 14 with a Valentine's Day gift that she'll be able to use daily: scrunchies!
If your girlfriend or wife has long hair and is fond of styling their hair in many zany ways, silky-smooth scrunchies that can give her the perfect curls are the way to go. This is a gift they’d definitely love and use daily.
Fii Beauty's Cloud Curler is the hair beauty product that took Singapore by storm and was sold out within 3 days of launch. This is the essential scrunchie that's a must-have for women wherever they go. It comes in thick and thin curling sizes, ideal for those who want to achieve big or medium curls/waves.
These are easily the best scrunchie curlers on the market. They're made of 100% mulberry silk for frizz-free hair. These curlers' silky smooth fabric also ensures effortless styling, wherever and wherever.

2. Silk Pillowcase
If your girlfriend or wife has been complaining about losing or dropping hair, pillowcases are as practical as they can get. Upgrade your partner's old cotton pillowcase with something softer and gentler with the Fii CloudSleep Hydrating Silk Pillowcase. This is another crowd favourite of ladies with long hair.
