Buy Her Something Unique
No, we’re not talking candy and flowers! Those are about as cliché as it gets on the most romantic holiday of the year. While no girl would turn down a nice bouquet of roses or box of her favorite chocolates, it’s time to think outside the box!
For example, you could buy her a piece of art! Take her to an art museum and pay attention to which pieces she loves the most. Then, you can find a less expensive print of said art and give it to her for Valentine’s Day. Not only will she be floored that you remembered, but you’ll already know she likes it!
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to throw you into bankruptcy! It really is the thought that counts, so tell her exactly how you feel about her in a handwritten note! Put in writing all of the reasons you love her, so she’ll never have to guess.
She will be impressed that you took the time to write down your feelings, and she will be able to look at it anytime and remember how much you really care. That’s more meaningful and lasting than any expensive present!
If your significant female doesn’t already have one, buy her a fondue pot! Shop around for a great deal – some of these sets cost less than $20. Once you have the right set, buy the ingredients for chocolate fondue, and some marshmallows and strawberries for dipping.
It’s a gift and a date in one! You can spend your Valentine’s night getting cozy by the fondue pot, feeding each other chocolate covered treats. How romantic!
No matter your income, you can take your special lady on a trip that she’ll never forget! If you’ve got plenty of extra money to spend, treat her to a cruise or overseas vacation. If you have a smaller budget, opt for a weekend getaway to a nice local hotel or bed and breakfast instead!
Either way, she’ll appreciate the chance to spend quality time with her valentine!
Personalized iPhone Case
Does the woman in your life have an iPhone? If so, buy her a personalized case! Many sites offer the service; you can add your own pictures and text, or personalize existing designs.
If you don’t have enough time to wait for something to be made, buy her a unique case that suits her personality. She’ll love that you went for something out of the Valentine’s Day norm, and she’ll think of you every time she picks up the phone!
Make Her a Playlist
No matter how many years go by, making mixtapes is still one of the most romantic gestures someone can make. Put together a list of songs that remind you of your honey, making sure to pick the most meaningful options available. Be sure to also throw in a song or two by her favorite artists to show that you pay attention to what she likes!
Then, when Valentine’s Day rolls around, you can settle in with a pair of earbuds and listen to the playlist together!
Does she love going to concerts? Is she a big fan of theater? Are comedy clubs one of her favorite places to spend an evening out? Is she an even bigger fan of your local sports team than you are?
Surprise her with tickets! She’ll be thrilled that you took the time to figure out what she would really love to do and made it happen. That’s the best kind of gift out there!
This may seem like a pretty small gesture, but not every gift has to be huge. Have prints made of some of your best photos together, and choose one to frame! Find a unique frame that goes well with her decor, so she can easily put it on display in her home.
Anytime she’s alone at home, she can take a look at that frame and remember how thoughtful you are, and what a great looking couple you make!
I know what you’re thinking. Isn’t jewelry just as cliché as flowers and candy on Valentine’s Day? While that may be true, jewelry is different in one key way: you can make it personal.
While flowers and candy only come in so many arrangements and assortments, the options with jewelry are endless! You can pick any size, any color, any stone, and any type, from necklaces to bracelets to earrings, etc. No matter which item you pick out, she’ll know that you put a lot of thought into her gift!
Give Her a Massage
If all else fails, one thing is always sure to put a smile on her face: a good massage! If you aren’t very good at giving massages yourself, take her to a spa and leave it to a professional!
To make the visit extra romantic, sign up for a couples massage so you can enjoy the experience side-by-side!
