Whoops, you’re left with a week till Valentine’s Day and that means your chances of finding a meaningful but non-exorbitantly priced gift are pretty low. If you’re cringing at the thought of your disappointed valentine’s face, fret not!
Us good folks at hoolah have got you covered with some Valentine’s Day gifts that will surprise and please any females in your life, whether she’s your sister, mama, or baby mama.
For the Quietly Chic
It’s hard to go wrong with jewellery — after all, every girl loves a little something precious and pretty! If your gal is not a fan of the super bling, or she shies away from statement pieces, opt for some minimal pieces that are perfect for everyday use! These gold huggies from By Invite Only are classy and add a touch of elegance to any outfit.
For the Astrology Fan
Maybe she’s into astrology or is super into stars aligning and the significance of one’s birthstone. Rather than getting her the actual birthstone, spring for a subtle touch instead. We love Curious Creatures’ birthstone rings!
For the Hugger
We all know of a few people in our lives who would love it if you could gift your presence. Until technology makes that a possibility, spring for a cute cushion instead! This way, she gets to hold something that reminds her of you, and yet elevates her room’s aesthetic. Gotta love a win-win!
For the Self-Aware
This journal encourages happiness habits through daily self-care, kindness, goal-setting, and dream prompts that calm the soul and empower the everyday woman. Perfect for the she-ro in your life!
For the Skincare Freak
If one thing’s for sure, it’s that skincare translates to self-love which translates to the best type of love! If you have a female in your life who loves to pamper herself, this overnight mask will definitely show her that you approve and want her to indulge in some self-loving!
For the Aspiring Pop Star
We all have one! The gal pal who loves singing and has big dreams of making it on stage. What better way to show your love by showing that you support her dreams? This mic set from Popsical allows her to practise in the comfort of her home, bringing her closer to her superstar dreams.
For the Environmentally Conscious
She’s the girl who does more than own a metal straw — she campaigns for reducing single use plastic and tries to be conscious about her eating habits. This Stojo collapsible cup allows her to live what she preaches and also, get discounts in coffee shops!
For the Boho Babe
She loves her rattan and linen pieces but in Singapore, you’d be hard pressed to find ethically sourced and quality pieces like such. This unique piece from sift & pick is up-cycled from discarded wood materials from various carpentry and designer studios in Singapore.

For the Sun Kissed Beach Lover
She loves the beach and the sun, but lacks the cute bikini to really enjoy both. This gift from Haikini will be perfect with its cute and unique prints and colours. Plus, it is also reversible!
For the Pilates / Yoga Fiend
Sports bras are crucial for a great workout and it is even better when they have great breathability. This particular one from outfyt catches our eye because of its seamless design and how it is eco-friendly too.
For the Broke Travel Addict
Ahh, we know the type. She’s the jet-setter going off to different countries every month. While her Instagram feed might be pretty, she has confessed multiple times to you that her bank account is not. This gift encourages her to save up for her next big trip!
For the Cat Lady
Hold up, cat ladies get such an unfair rep! She’s merely the girl who loves her kitties and wants to spoil them to the best of her abilities! Help her out with this play treat from CreatureLand.
For the Personalised Gift Lover
She loves gifts with a personal touch and why not? These gifts show that you were thinking specifically of her when you’re buying them and it’s thoughtful! Anything engraved is cute but we love this mug set from mydreamvibe. Y’all can even be matchy!
For the Local Food Lover
She loves her meepok, her banmian and her laksa! If you are looking for a more non-perishable gift that also allows her to indulge in her love for local fare, this tee is a perfect match! To make it a truly great Valentine’s Day gift, include a few “dabao” packs of gan banmian too!
