Guy Goes Viral for Practical Gifts to Girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, Earns Praise for Clever Ideas

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, have you already made plans on what to buy your significant other as a sign of your love?

One guy went viral for his unique and practical gift for Valentine’s Day – and it’s certainly something that your sweetheart might actually appreciate…

Instead of giving his girlfriend Sarah Grace Quinto expensive flowers, perfume, and chocolates, practical guy Adrian Scott Dela Cruz chose the perfect gift: a sack of rice!

Mahal ko, ito nalang regalo ko sayo kesa sa bulaklak ha? Idadaan ko nalang sa bahay ninyo ito ngaun. Sana magustuhan mo toh.😍 Happy Valentines day mahal ko! 😘😍 #BigasFebIbig,” the practical boyfriend posted on his Facebook account.

He also posted a handwritten note on the sack of rice, showing that he cares for her for far more than the one-day Valentine’s Day event.

Mahal kong Sarah,

Maging praktikal na tayo ngayon. Dahil ang presyo ng bulaklak ay presyo na ng isang sakong bigas. Sana alagaan mo ang katawan mo.

Nagmamahal,

Adrian

Netizens were quite impressed with the gift. And while it would certainly be sweet to receive chocolates and flowers, a responsible man who would bring food on the table, almost so literally, is someone worth loving for the rest of your life, many netizens agreed.

On a day that is now so filled with commercialism, many agreed that Adrian’s gift is not just practical, it shows that he’s responsible and loves his girlfriend so much to think of something she could actually enjoy for many days.

And while a sack of rice might be a bit “boring” for some who still wish to receive traditional Valentine’s Day gifts, Sarah loved it!

Ikaw na talaga ang panalo sa araw na to at sa puso ko. Wushuuuu. Masyado mong ginalingan hands down. Salamat sa unli rice na binigay mo at sa unli tawa na pinaramdam mo sa akin ngayong araw ng pagibig. Happy Valentines Day Mahal! I love you #BigasFebIbig,” Sarah wrote in reply on Facebook.

And while this rice gift happened in 2017, it continues to go viral every year, right around Valentine’s Day.

It turned out that in 2018, Adrian gave Sarah another practical gift for Valentine’s Day – a cooler filled with meat, dressed chicken, and seafoods!

Mahal ito ang regalo ko para sayo sa araw na ito 😘 sana magustuhan mo mga pinalengke ko. May manok, hito, baboy, giniling na karne, at iba’t ibang klase ng isda na alam kong ikatutuwa mo at ng tiyan mo pag naluto na.😊

P.S. ikaw na magluto niyan at bumili ng ibang sahog na kulang ha? Mahal na ang bigas ngayon love kaya mga ulam nalang binili ko😘

Happy Valentines Day Love! I love you Sarah!

In 2019, the gift was partially a joke as he gave her a case of beer.

Mahal kong Sarah,

Ito ang patunay na kahit gaano man na tayo katagal, at kahit gaano man na tayong tumatanda, lagi mong tandaan na mula noon hanggang ngayon “MALAKAS PA RIN ANG TAMA KO SAYO!”

Nagmamahal,

Adrian

Hilarious but still so sweet, right?

This year, it is extra special for the couple who recently got married. Would Adrian still give her a sack of rice and a box of meat when they are now living under one roof? Hmmmmm. We can’t wait to see what happens next…

Would you prefer flowers and chocolates or more practical gifts like a sack of rice and seafoods for Valentine’s Day?
