A Little Valentine’s Day Inspiration For Him and Her

 

The Valentine’s Day holiday works a little bit differently in Korea compared to other places around the world. Instead of being a day where men lavish their significant other with chocolates, flowers, and gifts, women are the ones who give out chocolate and other presents as a sign of affection. Men return the favor on White Day, but we'll be talking about that next month stay tuned!. 

Despite this peculiar tradition, the Korean Valentine’s trend has been slowly changing, and retailers have started offering Valentine’s gift options that both men and women could enjoy. Since Valentine’s Day has become all about mutually sharing the love, we’ve prepared a list of products that you, your partner, or both could enjoy.
