14 Gifts Perfect For Valentine’s Day — And Every Other Day

There's no deadline on love.


Chandré Davids |

Having a partner can be pretty great. Someone to binge-watch the latest Netflix series with. Someone you can complain to when your day hasn’t been the greatest, or give you that much-needed inspo when you’re thinking of missing the gym. And the best part: a cuddle buddy.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, you probably want to get your partner something to show them just how much you love them. But the day of love shouldn’t be confined to just one day – you should celebrate it every day! Here are 14 gifts for your partner, even if it’s not the 14th of February.

Pure Papaya Lip Balm

PURE Papaya Lips not only hydrates and nourishes, but protects lips too. Shea butter, jojoba oil and macadamia oil take care of moisture and nutrients, while candelilla wax protects without the need for beeswax. Because no one likes chapped lips. Get it for R100 at Faithful to Nature
