Which Cliché Valentine’s Day Gifts Actually Work?

While you should avoid the cheap Valentine’s Day junk littering the grocery store aisle, you really don’t need to be that creative to win a girl’s heart. Read on to find out which cliché Valentine’s Day gifts actually work!

Flowers are a safe bet if you don’t know what else to buy your date for Valentine’s Day. This cliché gift is a staple of every major romantic occasion, but girls just can’t seem to get enough of them. You can’t go wrong with a dozen roses, although you should only give red-colored roses in a serious relationship. Other types of flowers will work too, and most stores have pre-made bouquets that should go over well.



Valentine’s Day cards that you buy at the store are really corny and mushy, but girls love these things for some reason. Just make sure to add a little personal message of your own, and you’ll be set. If you have a little artistic talent and are willing to put in more effort, then making your own card is always a good way to go. Write something about an inside joke you share or try to come up with a short poem.



Girls love chocolate. Seriously, you don’t want to be the guy that didn’t give out chocolate on Valentine’s Day. Make sure you get the good stuff though, because girls don’t want those stupid heart-shaped boxes of assorted flavors. Get a girl some gourmet chocolate truffles and she’ll be all yours… after she wolfs down the entire box.


Red Heart Shaped Candies Surrounding an Engagement Ring in a Box

It’s not always easy to pick out the right piece of jewelry for your girl, but Valentine’s Day makes it easy. Just pick out something sparkly and heart-shaped, and you’ll be good to go. Silver necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are usually safe choices. Of course, there’s always the option to get down on one knee and pull out a diamond ring if you’re ready to take things to the next level. That’s one cliché gift that always works.

Stuffed Animals

You’d think that girls would outgrow stuffed animals by the time they hit their early teens, but they never stop loving these cute and fluffy things. Girls take comfort in holding something while they’re asleep or home alone, so make sure to get something soft and loveable. The stuffed animal is a cliché gift that will show her your sensitive side and will remind her of you. Avoid the cheap Valentine-themed ones and try to find her favorite animal instead.



Perfume is an expensive gift, but it’s also very romantic and personal. Take the time to pick out a perfume that you really like, or take her shopping and pick one out together. This cliché gift makes a girl feel glamorous and attractive, and she’ll smell great — which is a nice little bonus for you.


listening to music

It’s funny to say mixtape when cassette tapes barely even exist anymore, but this cliché lives on. Compile a few of your favorite songs or a bunch of romantic songs into a playlist. You can share the playlist with your girl, or ideally, burn the songs to a CD. This idea has been done a million times, but it’s still a gift that scores big points on Valentine’s Day.

Lotions and Body Washes


Lotions and body washes are great, because they typically come in pre-made gift baskets that feel more luxurious than they really are. This type of gift is also subtly sensual, even though it seems innocent on the surface. Head over to your local Bath and Body Works and snag some of these if you want an opening for a Valentine’s Day massage session.
