Clever Travel Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just a week away and you’re probably trying to figure out the best possible gift—something that your loved ones will surely appreciate and use everyday.  After all, it’s a good way to show how much you know the person you’ll be giving it to. The classic chocolates, stuffed toys, and flowers are cute and sweet, different gimmicks like a bouquet of chocolates and surprise romantic dinner set up have become a thing. But, a useful present is still something a little more well-thought-out and memorable, especially now that unisex items must be taken into consideration as there are couples and people out there who like to switch things up. 

Here are six practical Valentine’s Day—and birthday or holiday—gift options to make sure your sweetheart feels the love no matter what they’re into. 

1. Cabinzero travel backpack

CabinZero 36L Naga Red, P3,790

A steadfast and trustworthy luggage companion. This zero-hassle travel bag is perfect and totally functional for adventurous people who are planning to travel anytime soon.  With so much space to store extra clothes and other valuables, the 36-liter travel backpack makes a good hand carry bag. It is easy to cram in planes and trains or under the seat of a vehicle during long travels. 

2. FCB backpack

Equipped with Anti-Gravity System or AGS to reduce the load on the user’s shoulder and alleviate muscle fatigue. FCB backpack from FX Creations boasts a striking two-tone red that is not only useful in travels but on daily use as well. It is lightweight, sturdy, and packed with two main compartments and four convenient internal pockets that can hold and secure all your essentials such as wallets, keys, and even a 15-inch laptop or other gadgets. 

3. Drifter Convertible

4. Continental Clutch bag

Another useful gift idea you can give to your special someone is the Continental Clutch Bag from Pacsafe. True to its brand promise as a leading innovator when it comes to anti-theft, this clutch bag features an RFIDSafe to secure all your credit and ATM cards from any unwanted scanning.

5. C-Secure Wallet

C-Secure Women’s Wallet (with Inca design), P3,790

One of the cutest gifts on the list is this cardholder with an intricate Inca-inspired design from C-Secure.
