Find the Perfect Gift & Outing for Valentine’s Day at the Mall

Can you smell it? Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift and outing for your partner, all you have to do is look to the mall.

Work Smarter, Not Harder

If you don’t have an idea of where to start and time is limited, the mall is just the ticket. With literally hundreds of stores depending on which mall you go to, you’ll have a plethora of options to choose from.

Make Your Gift Special

Let’s face it — you want something either personal, unique, thoughtful or all of the above. OMG! breaks down a gift idea in each category.

Personal

Anyone can buy jewelry or an elegant accessory off the rack, so make it that much more special by personalizing it. An engraved keepsake at Things Remembered (Altamonte Mall | The Florida Mall | Orlando Fashion Square | Seminole Towne Center | West Oaks Mall) can make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for him or for her. For the man in your life, a Stealth Photo Watch provides a functional gift while also providing a great reminder of your love for him, as opening the face reveals an engraved message and a photo.

For the ladies, the Anastasia Musical Keepsake Box can become her new jewelry container. Of course, you can also add a personalized message on the underside of the lid. For bonus points, put a new pair of earrings or a necklace inside.

 

Unique

Just like your Valentine, your love is unique. Make sure your gift reflects that with a one­-of­-a­-kind offering like those on sale at Artegon Marketplace Orlando. More than 160 artisan sellers are gathered under one roof to provide that rare gift that says “I love you.” The maker at Flashin Fashin Jewelry crafts naturally handmade, spiritual jewelry that is sure to delight.

If art is your man’s thing, try Thiago Romero Fine Arts. The prices here are among the highest on this list, to be sure, as options start at $200.  Alternatively, check out Heroes, Legends & Superstars for wall décor featuring athletes, musicians, movie stars and more that is perfect for his man-cave or office.

Thoughtful

Show you personally care for your significant other with personal care products at Bath and Body Works (Altamonte Mall | The Florida Mall | The Mall at Millenia | Oviedo Mall | Waterford Lakes Town Center) . You can’t go wrong with soaps, candles and body scrubs intended to make your special someone look and feel their best. But these goods aren’t just for women. Guys like to smell and feel fresh too. Just tell him that’s how you like him, and he’ll be all over it and you too.

Dinner Amore

You can exchange your gift over dinner at the new Oyishi Japanese Steakhouse at Oviedo Mall. The restaurant will barely be a month old come Valentine’s Day, which means it would be a new experience for the both of you which is always good for keeping the spark in a relationship.

And who says Valentine’s Day has to spent over a fancy dinner? Share each other’s love and get into an activity at StrikeOuts Bowling and Entertainment at Orlando Fashion Square. Bowl some games, eat dinner and grab a drink at the bar.

My name is Mark and I’m a mall-aholic. As a native Orlandoan, I’ve been visiting them since I can remember. I’ve also worked in a couple and consider myself a self-appointed expert. There’s been a lot of change when it comes metro Orlando’s mall landscape, and I’ve taken it upon myself to chronicle it. Each mall has a story to tell, and having graduated from the University of Central Florida and double majored in journalism and radio/television, I feel I’m best equipped to make those stories come alive here at Orlando Mall Guide. So whether you’re a local or a tourist needing a shopping break from the attractions, I’m your hookup.
