I have a saying….. Guys are clueless. Why will anyone in his right senses buy a tool box for his girlfriend on valentines day? And even we ladies can get it wrong some times, you really should be absolutely positively sure before you buy your man a glow in the dark underwear. 

Its understandable anyway. We live very busy lives and our heads are filled with how to make the paper and sometimes it feels like romance is lost, but have no fear, city crawler has not only come up with gift ideas for you, but ill also tell you where in the city of Abuja you can find them…..

*two things though, valentines gifts don’t have to be PRACTICAL just know your partner and personalize. *THE BEST PRESENTS FEEL SPECIALLY CHOSEN FOR THAT PERSON AND THAT PERSON ONLY

                                              THE CC LIST

                                     VALENTINE EDITION

*Perfumes - I FOUND A STORE at the Silverbird Entertainment center that has unbelievable prices on all perfumes. From the celebrity perfumes, to the designer perfumes and of course to the classics. If you are on a budget you can try Perry Ellis for him or for her and if you wanna splurge Creed is a fav for men and any hermes perfume will put a smile on her face.

*Book - Today a reader, tomorrow a leader. If your boo loves to read, then make your way to pens and pages in wuse 2 and pick up a book for him or her. Whether it be Fiction, Biography, Motivational or self –help. If you are on a budget, there are second hand but very good quality books sold @ area 10.

*Sexy lingerie and underwear – always a favourite. But you can be creative with edible underwear or those sexy stripper ones that r for your eyes only. Just be sure to get the right size.

*Personalized mugs and tshirts – Another favourite and you can hardly go wrong with this one……. You can get real cool tshirts from the closet or call Sam of xtramile creations on 08065762310 to hook u up.

*Chocolate – if you want raw, unadulterated chocolate that will not only look good but will delight the senses, please just head to dunes, turn right at the entrance, you cant miss it, I don’t have a sweet tooth and yet I know this place, chai. If you are on a budget there is a sweet shop @ omega center that Gang and Mimidoo are obsessed with…. You can ask then for directions.

*Wine and champagne – I am more of a white wine person but for Valentine you are better off with Red. Ofcourse there is a wide selection to choose from whether you are splurging or not.  Come by Code Bar and we will hook you up with a South African 

*Flowers – they saw Nigerian girls don’t like flowers, I say, you'l be surprised. Just try and make sure the flowers come with a lil something something….. ground floor ceddi plaza and just beside the mango store at SEC. please don’t buy plastic flowers, THAT’S NOT ROMANTIC AT ALL #OKTHANKS

*Ipod – my sisters husband engraved and loaded her ipod with all her favourite songs; brought tears to my eyes. That’s how a practical gift becomes more special, when you personalize it. Inspector gadget store can hook you up with a great ipod because the time is short to order online

*Jewelry – works everytime. But ladies, be sure your man is into that before u spludge on a gold chain that he will never wear, becos it just not him. Ok. If you want gold, head to wuse market, they have variety and the best prices.

*Cake – cupcakes, chocolate cakes, velvet cakes etc, my favourite place is the oven….

*Dinner – important…. Spending time together ALONE just the 2 of you on this romantic day is important. Take her out for a romantic dinner for 2, to any of the fabulous restaurant spread around the city. My favourite restaurant in Abuja is the Oriental Mongolian at the Transcorp Hilton, but if you are on a budget then cook.

*Gift Card - most boutiques areound the city have gift cards, but you can actually get a gift card for your your boo to enjoy a massage or Spa treatment. i recommend bodyline gym for the massage, had one last week and my back has never felt the same.

*Love letter – emails, bb, fb messages, sms, dms, etc the art of writing is slowly dying. A heart felt letter will do what no sms or email can ever do. keep it straight, simple and honest. 

*Proposal – what better present than a promise to share the rest of your life together. But please be absolutely ready before you do this, (Disclaimer: Dont Say City Crawler Said)

So there you have it.


  1. hehehe no way you are kiding righ? A tool box that is one interesting gift lol.

    1. It’s no secret that a man’s ego has a powerful pull on him.

      In fact this hardwired need to impress and to WIN is so deeply embedded into the male mind...

      That nearly everything a man truly desires is based around this biological “drive” to prove, succeed and to win.

      It’s why so many men become workaholics, gym junkies or become obsessed with their hobbies.

      But what most women don’t know... how deeply this “drive” is connected to his love, desire, and attraction for the woman in his life.

      And I’m about to show you how you can “tap into” a man’s ege to refocus that same drive and gut level obsession...

      ...on pleasing you, romancing you, and proving his love for you like you’re his sole purpose in life.

      Here’s how: ==> The “Go Ahead” Signal That Makes Him Obsessed With Winning Your Love

      Mr Gix

      P.S. When you tap into a man’s ego this way, you can cause him to literally become obsessed with proving his love for you. So please don’t use this on a man unless you are ready for something serious.

      Thanks again.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
