K-style Gifts that your Oppa Will Love

Not sure what to get your beau this Valentine’s Day? If hi-tech electronics and customised gift box sets won’t appease him, maybe our curated list of Korean-inspired gifts might pique his interest. Here are three sets of ideas that would make a great gift for your special man, depending on your budget:

Go Personlised

First off, we have the personalised gift section where you can add his initials on a wallet, pick a tie that has his favourite dog illustrated on it, or a simple key ring in his initials.

  5. TOTE 310 HEAVY TWILL CHARCOAL, Rawrow, KRW39,000, + Add To Wishlist
    A lightweight and waterproof bag for casual occasions that doesn’t break the bank.

Let’s Splurge

Lastly, a little splurge but we promise that it will be worth the Benjamins baby~!

  1. Brief in Brief Bag, Alef & Tav, KRW275,000, + Add To Wishlist
    This spacious, multipurpose bag can be used four ways: a canvas bag, tote, crossbody and as a shopper. Its detachable sling strap makes it easy to switch styles to suit his daily needs.

    Look no further for a pair of staple all-black sunglasses. This one from Gentle Monster has lenses to give the eyes the 100% UV protection it needs when he’s outdoors, plus this particular style would flatters most face shapes.
  3. Bradley Timepiece, Eone, KRW379,000, + Add To Wishlist
    This one-of-a-kind timepece was designed by a Korean guy named Hyungsoo Kim together with Bradley Snyder (who lost his eyesight during the Afghan war and went on to win a Silver medal in the Paralympics 2011)—with the aim to create an innovative timepiece that’s able to cater to the visual impaired as well as the masses.
