Now everyone seems to think women are easier to buy gifts for than men, but what if the lady in your life always says there is nothing she "needs" or "wants" when you ask her for gift ideas? With Valentine's Day only 3 days away now, you may still be in need of gift inspiration for your girlfriend, wife or partner and so we are here to help. We've put together a list of the Top 5 Gift Ideas For Her this Valentine's Day. All of course make wonderful gifts, but some may be more suitable than others for specific recipients. Pick wisely & you could be in receipt of some serious brownie points!
1 - Wine & Dine Her
There's nothing better than going out for a lovely meal and some wine or cocktails. This is particularly true if you happen to have young kids or only go out for special occasions. Getting to enjoy a hot meal in peace, not having to do any dishes and of course spending some quality time together (without being interrupted or having to feed the kids) is close to bliss, for me anyway!
2- Thoughtful Little Touches
Sometimes it's not grand gestures that show how much you care, but little touches that seem like everyday, simple things. Such as my husband bringing me a cup of coffee in the morning or making my packed lunch for the next day. Homemade or personalised gifts are also really well received such as photo frames or fun vouchers for a day to yourself or when you get to pick the activity.
3 - Traditional Romantic
The traditional romantic gifts are sometimes the best option for a traditional girl or if it is early on in your relationship and you want to do the whole hearts and flowers declaration of love. In this case she'll be delighted with some champagne, chocolates, roses or a cuddly toy. Don't forget the oversized gift card, the bigger the better.
4 - Jewellery / Perfume
If she's not into traditional Valentine themed gifts then a bit of bling or her favourite perfume is always a sure fire hit. Diamonds are a girls best friend after all, and perfume is something you don't always purchase for yourself as it is a bit of a treat.
5- Gift Basket or Hamper
Not only does a Gift Basket for Valentine's Day look the part (see here for inspiration), but the carefully put together selection of contents will make them feel truly special and loved. Why choose between wine, chocolates, flowers and a personal touch when you can gift it all with a carefully chosen Gift Basket? If she is into hearts and flowers then we have a wide selection of Valentine's Day Gift Baskets to choose from. These have a romantic theme and will also be decorated in red ribbon and have a Valentine's Day Gift Card.
