Aditya Kushwaha, director of Axis Ecorp, a real estate company focused on premium developments in holiday homes and secondary housing said, “Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the love that you have for each other. Gifting your spouse or a loved one a holiday home is ensuring that you are looking forward to spending not just a one-weekend getaway with them but many more to come. So it is not surprising that this Valentine’s season there is big uptake on people looking at holiday homes as a gifting option.”
4. Groom-at-home amid the pandemic could also prove to be relaxing yet a special way of celebrating the day of love. Manish Sharma, President and CEO, Panasonic India and South Asia said, “We have witnessed an exponential demand for personal hygiene products like trimmers as consumers continue to groom-at-home. Our top-selling products in current times are trimmers that are flying off the shelves quickly.”
5. Food coupons could also do the trick. While taking your companion on a Valentine’s Day candlelight dinner has got its own charm, one can rather gift the partner a couple of food coupons and provide them the sheer happiness of digging into their favourite delicacies.
6. Nothing makes a girl more gleeful than a couple of shopping vouchers from their favourite brands. Make her feel special by gifting a card from brands like Zara, Forever 21, and Pantaloons, and she will surely be left pleased.
7. Investing in a hobby is never a bad choice, and one of the most innovative ideas amid the pandemic is gifting a coupon for a digital class or workshop to help him/her hone their skills.
Now that we have got you all covered, ditch the same old gifting ideas, and come up with something unique to make your loved one feel extra special this Valentine’s. (ANI)

Tom Hanks’ sci-fi movie ‘Finch’ drops first trailer
WASHINGTON: The first official full trailer of Hollywood star Tom Hanks’ upcoming sci-fi adventure movie ‘Finch’ has recently been dropped by Apple TV+, where it will premiere on November 5.
The movie narrates the story of a lone survivor of a global apocalypse who has embarked on a dangerous journey to find a new home for his unlikely family, a dog and a newly created robot. Hanks has portrayed the titular character, a robotics engineer, who is the only survivor of a solar event. Finch creates the robot named Jeff (Caleb Landry Jones) to take care of his loyal companion, dog Goodyear, when he’s gone.
The almost 3-minute trailer of ‘Finch’ begins with Hanks’ character saying “It all happened so fast. There was a solar flare. Goodbye crops and food, goodbye everything,” as scenes of a deserted, dystopian America pass by. “So I hid, frightened and so alone, and I found you,” he continues, addressing the sweet dog.
After Finch develops the robot Jeff, it learns its purpose (“Robots must protect dog”), the trio then set out west, embarking on a treacherous journey to beat a deadly storm to safety. “If we don’t go before that storm hits, we’ll die. All of us,” Finch says in the trailer.
During the journey, they experience some lighthearted moments on the road, Finch teaching Jeff how to drive, Jeff learning how to “talk dog”, all while the pressures of the post-apocalyptic world seem to be closing in. Along the way, they navigate through extreme weather phenomena, merciless heat, UV radiation, and other unexpected challenges.
