4 Surprise Gift Ideas That You May Not Have Thought Of Before

We understand the struggle. Gift giving is a good—and much appreciated—expression of love. Yet, it can also be hard. You can give your girlfriend the usual bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates—coupled with a romantic date in some must-visit restaurant in the city. But that’s all too expected. What gift can you give that not only fits the unusual times we are living in now, but can also still delight and surprise?

With Valentine’s Day coming up, here are some suggestions of gift ideas that can be surprising, courtesy of Globe Platinum. Curated from their lineup of exclusive perks for their subscribers, these gifts are truly a cut above the usual ones that will be purchased this season, simply because many may not have thought of these before. Even better: These suggestions also fit your gift-giving needs on any occasion. Take a look below:

Les Twins x Hennessy



What about a gift you can both enjoy—a bottle of premium spirits, for instance? Something you can celebrate and share a toast with, thanks to the bottles and cocktail kits that come with them. Hennessy collaborated with renowned French dancers Les Twins for a limited edition kit inspired by the duo’s unstoppable energy as artists—something you may want to channel if you want to spend quality time with your loved one. The Limited Edition kit contains a Hennessy Les 700 ml bottle with a Les Twins design. It also concludes a cocktail with one Fever Tree Ginger Beer, one Sour Glass, one mini jar of Elderflower liqueur, Vanilla, and Almond syrup each. Sometimes, the best gift you can give is a good time—and a bottle of Hennessy can give you just that.

DRINK RESPONSIBLY.

Apple Accessories Bundles by Power Mac Center



A romantic boyfriend is a supportive boyfriend. Show how supportive you are with your girlfriend’s professional endeavors with Apple Accessories Bundles by Power Mac Center. Get one—or all, if you want to splurge a bit—based on your girlfriend’s needs.

There are three available bundles (choose one—or all, if you want to splurge a bit—based on your girlfriend’s needs and preference). The MacBook Pro Productivity Kit—a bundle that will give one’s productivity a much-needed boost—includes a Magic Mouse, a Microsoft Office (Home and Student 2021 edition), and Seagate Portable Hard Drive (One Touch Slim USB 3.0 ITB). The iPad Completer Set has all the necessary iPad accessories: an Apple Pencil, a Panzerglass Screen Protector, and a Smart Keyboard (for iPad 8th-9th Gen). And the iPhone 13 On The Go Set makes using the new iPhone much easier, with an iPhone 13 Pro Max Clear Case, a Magsafe Charge, and Airpods (2nd Generation with Charging Case).

Mystery Tasting Boxes by Gallery by Chele



Amp up your dining experience with a Mystery Tasting Box by Gallery by Chele. You’ll be getting six to eight dishes (ranging from tapas, mains, and a dessert) from revered urban chef Chele Gonzales. By availing of this offer, you'll get a taste of his signature Spanish cuisine menu—but you won’t know exactly what you’ll be getting. (Of course, you can include special instructions if you have food allergies or specific dietary restrictions). A bit of suspense and mystery will spice up your date night. This is so much better than your usual sit-down meal at a restaurant.

SHOOR Vouchers

The best gift isn’t almost material gifts. Give the gift of experience with SHOOR Vouchers. SHOOR is an online platform with a selection of diverse entertainment, learning, and other unique activities, both online and in-person. They have virtual escape rooms, travel bundles for places such as Boracay and Bohol, among many others, private mountain climbing tours, and holistic wellness retreat packages! You can choose a specific package for your loved ones (which they can avail on their own or with you), or you can give them P200 OFF vouchers, which they can use for the activities of their choice, or P1,000 OFF vouchers, which they can use for a modern boodle fight experience.

Globe Platinum subscribers can purchase these using the up-to-P58,000 GCash credits that come with their Platinum GPlan. You can even consider gifting your loved ones with a Platinum GPlan, too! And in time for Globe’s #ForFutureHeroes campaign, every purchase made will help children from Baseco Compound continue their education at home with school kits from World Vision.

If you're ready to score these deals, just ask THEA, your Platinum Digital Assistant, for the UNLOCKED access code that you can use to enter the private Platinum GPlan Unlocked page. Other payment options are also available via Paypal.
