When searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for her, consider her interests. The standard flowers, chocolates, and jewelry only work if she likes those kinds of things. If she is the world’s biggest tomboy, she may not appreciate a lovely piece of jewelry. The following are some great gift ideas for her, but remember to consider what she likes before making your choice:
Picture Gifts: Pictures are usually sentimental. So, this Valentine’s Day, take some of your favorite pictures of the two of you, or of her and her friends, etc. and put together a picture book for her, or some other picture gift. You could compile them all into a slide show and put them to music, then burn them on to a DVD. You could create a photobook through a photo company like ShutterFly. You could make your own scrapbook, etc. She will love it because it takes time, effort, and thought.
Experience Gifts: Women love gifts that allow them to spend more time with the people they love. So, this year for Valentine’s Day think of experiences or gifts that can be given that allow for that. For example, if you have a local play house, you could buy season tickets to their productions. This is typically 8-9 shows a year, which means 8-9 dates where you do something a little different, and really fun. If plays aren’t your thing, consider a ticket package to a local sports team. If you don’t want to get something that has to be used over several months, then consider a one time experience type gift, where you take a weekend getaway, or go to an Off-Broadway show, or to a popular comedy club. Tickets make great Valentine’ Day gifts.
Pampering Gifts: Women want to feel appreciated and special. You can help her know how much her sacrifices mean to you by recognizing them. Write her a lovely note about how hard she works, how much she does for you, and how much you appreciate it, and how you want her to take a day for her, then give her a gift card to pamper herself. This might be to a spa, nail salon, or beauty parlor. It might be a bathrobe, slippers, and bubble bath. Find what fits in your budget, and what would appeal to her most, and make a pampering gift for her.
When looking for Valentine’s Day gifts for her, avoid clothes, women like to shop for their own clothes, if you want her to have clothes, get her a prepaid Visa, or gift card. It is also a good idea to avoid getting her stuff for the house, or the family. Unless she tells you she wants new dishes for Valentine’s Day, it is not a good gift choice, she will probably be upset. Get something for her, that reminds you of her, and that shows how much you care about her.
