Goodbye January, hello February! Hello Love month! Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone? Do you find it quite hard to give a gift because frankly, I know our wallets are still recuperating from the shopping we did last Christmas. Shopping for your special someone is fun, but with budget constraints, not to mention traffic and the number of people you have to bump into when shopping at a mall, wouldn’t you rather shop online? Which brings me to yet again profess my love for online shopping. I don’t know how many times I’ve said that. Online shopping has been my sanity saver and has helped me stay on my budget despite purchasing something. It has saved me more than a few hundreds, compared to shopping at a mall where I have to pay for gas and parking fees.
I love shopping at group buying sites because I am a bargain hunter. One of my favorites would have to be Deal Grocer. I cannot count how many deals I have purchased for myself and for my loved ones. Spa dates, dinner dates, unique products and even getaway trips were some of the things I’ve purchased and enjoyed over the years.
Just like an alarm clock, I get my daily dose of bargains on my email from Deal Grocer. Week after week, they bring us the best deals and have continuously partnered with more than 300 premium brands to give us the exclusive deal offerings without putting a hole in our pockets.
Deals such as a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant, a spa indulgence or a quick getaway somewhere are just some of the things you can gift your loved ones this Valentine’s Day. What’s even more perfect is that you can gift them in this very chic Deal Grocer Voucher.
But if you really want a unique gift to give your lovey dovey, then you have to shop at Deal Grocer’s retail partner Taste Central.
I love Taste Central, I have been shopping there ever since their website went live. I even wrote my Taste Central experience and have been recommending it to friends who are new to online shopping.
Six categories that caters to each one of your Valentine- parents, partner, wife, husband, siblings, children or even friends. A variety of well-curated, hard to find products ranging from food, beauty, home, men, women and kids. Taste Central is definitely a one-stop online shop where you can get thoughtful gifts to give your loved ones.
Three categories that specifically caters to newlyweds, jet setters and health buffs. I like it.
Now here are some of my picks that are Valentine-appropriate. These are perfect for a no-nonsense practical partner, a super sweet girlfriend or for a boyfriend who has distinctive taste.

Honestly, I have only received one bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day from Mr. GJG. Because I told him I’m not really a fan of flowers, unless they’re tulips. I would rather get a pair of shoes, a bag, set of clothes or jewelry! But I would gladly accept chocolates anytime, even if there’s no occasion. Ahem, ahem!
