With Valentine’s Day arriving soon, it is time to start looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones. If there is a K-pop stan in your life that you will be showing love to this season – whether it be a partner, friend, or yourself – here are a few gift ideas!

Lego Flower Bouquet

Lego sets are loved by many, including various K-pop idols. During a Weverse Live, BTS’ Jimin built the Flower Bouquet set in particular. The set includes a variety of flowers and leaves that make for a beautiful addition as home decor. The Lego Flower Bouquet is a fun spin on the idea of giving flowers to your loved ones and offers a great way to spend quality time together. The set is a great gift for anyone who enjoys spending time on a creative project, and especially for fans who associate the bouquet with Jimin!

Clear Toploaders

Toploaders are a necessity for any photocard collector because it provides a level of protection for the cards. Clear toploaders have become popular among the toploader decorating community because they lack the blue tint that regular toploaders have, making the image come through more crystal-clear. If your loved one is a photocard collector, then these toploaders are a great gift to add to their supply set. You can also include some decorative stickers to the gift and decorate toploaders together, turning it into another fun activity!

Sanrio Stacking Containers

Sanrio stacking containers are a practical gift for someone looking to optimize their space. These storage organizers are offered in multiple character options – including Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Kuromi – and are designed to be stacked on top of each other. They can hold makeup or any small desk essentials without taking up too much table room. These stacking containers also double as desk decor and feature a small compartment that a K-pop fan would be able to use to display their favorite photocard.

The Flynn Lightcatcher Liquid Glitter is a great gift for anyone looking to recreate these idol-inspired makeup looks. The liquid glitter incorporates micro and chunky shimmers and has an applicator that is convenient to use, especially for under-eye placement.

Bias-Themed Plushie

Stuffed animals are a cute, comforting gift for anyone and what way to make it better than to customize it based on their K-pop bias? Build-A-Bear has a wide selection of stuffed animals that you can customize with clothing and accessories to resemble your loved one’s favorite idol. You can select any teddy bear or choose a stuffed animal based on the idol’s representative animal since many idols have emojis or animals they are referred to by fans. For example, a frog plushie would be perfect for fans of SEVENTEEN’s THE8. Build-A-Bear also offers a feature where you can add a personalized voice message, which you can use to add a short recording of their bias’ voice or laugh. Bias-themed plushies are a creative, customizable gift that will remind your Valentine of their favorite K-pop idol and you!
