Take a look at some of our suggestions and pick one that best suits her personality and your relationship. You can pick from one of the classical Valentines gifts or go for something a little more unusual. As long as it shows you’ve been thinking of her she’s going to be bowled over. After reading through our suggestions you might want to tailor them to her taste, but we’re confident there will be one that suits her perfectly.

Flowers for your sweetheart
Flowers have been popular gifts to give to girlfriends for centuries, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be going out of fashion anytime soon. Roses of course, are the most popular bloom, with red roses being the favourite because they signify love and convey the message very nicely. But roses aren’t the only suitable bloom. Daisies symbolise loyal love and tulips signify perfect love, so why not choose one of them instead? A bouquet of flowers, if you can arrange them yourself all the better, will surprise and delight her and definitely make her day.

A time-honoured favourite for the ladies – Chocolate
Chocolate is and always will be a favourite for the ladies. Women love receiving an assortment of chocolates or a bar of gourmet chocolate. Don’t go for the ordinary, you can buy her a Snickers bar any day. Instead try and find something a little more unusual for your girlfriends Valentines gift. There are lots of different assortments that’ll be fun for her to try. Maybe she’d like to try chocolate mixed with chilli peppers and even bacon.

Pampering products can be the perfect gift
It’s a well-known fact that girls love to pamper themselves. She’ll find pampering products such as body washes, scented soaps, luxurious lotions and body sprays with a sweet smelling fragrance very enjoyable. There are also bubble baths, massage oils and aromatherapy products that will bring a smile to her face. If you’ve got enough cash you could always treat her to a pamper day at a local spa. After a day of relaxing and therapeutic treatments she’ll feel like she’s walking on air.

Make her feel like a princess with an item of jewellery
You don’t have to feel obliged to give her a diamond engagement ring for her Valentine’s gift. You might not be ready for such a commitment, and she might not be either. An alternative would be a heart-shaped pendant or a charm bracelet with some meaningful charms. Pay close attention to the items already in her jewellery collection, as something completely out of line with her taste will be a bit of a bomb Valentines gift.

Take her out to dinner
Or better still cook for her at home. If you decide to take your girlfriend out to dinner, you’ll be joining all the other romantic couples, staring at each other over a candlelit dinner, but having to shout your sweet nothings in order to be heard. Instead cook her up a gourmet meal and spend the evening laughing and talking, without having to worry about anyone else listening in.

Don’t forget to give your girlfriend a Valentine’s Day card
You might think that giving her a card is a bit cheesy, but look on it as a love note, and you’ll understand the power of a well chosen card. Choose one without a message inside or make one yourself and write your own meaningful words. Bit stuck about what to say? Here are a few suggestions:

  • You + me = Happiness for ever
  • When we are apart, I’m only half the man I want to be
  • You are my princess. You’re the jewel in my crown
  • I love you, not only for what you are, but for who I am when I’m with you
  • I love that I get to have you as my Valentine. Happy Valentine’s Day
  • Loving you is easy – Happy Valentines Day
  • The most beautiful thoughts I have are the ones of you
  • Be mine. Forever and a day
  • Valentines Day is the best day ever, because I get to spend it with you

If you’re still struggling to find the perfect Valentines gift for your girlfriend think about her hobbies or the things she enjoys. If she’s a bit of a foodie, then a gift hamper filled with tasty treats will be perfect. If she loves to curl up with a book then give her the latest e-Reader. If she loves music then why not give her an iTunes gift card, or the latest offering by her favourite group or singer.

Put some effort into choosing her gift and she’ll be impressed with your understanding of her interests, and you’ll be choosing a gift you know she’ll enjoy.
