We all breathe a collective sigh of relief as we usher in the new year and leave the chaotic holiday season behind us. But, just around the corner is another important holiday for many of us – Valentine’s Day. Some people hate the holiday, and others live for it, but no matter where you fall on that spectrum, you better not show up to her house empty-headed on February 14th. With the gift-giving frenzy we all just lived through for Christmas, you may be having a hard time coming up with gift ideas for her this V-Day, so here’s a list of the gifts she’ll not only love but actually use.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so they say. You can never go wrong with a beautiful piece of jewelry for her on Valentine’s. Even if she’s a strict minimalist who has wholly embraced uniform dressing, a simple dainty set of gold hoops would be appreciated. You can even go with the cliche but incredibly romantic notion of popping the question and giving her an engagement ring this February 14th. Jewelry, like clothing, is so personal per the individual, so keep in mind her tastes, not yours, while shopping. If you’re struggling with what she’d love, you can always reach out to a close girlfriend or family member of hers to help you.
While it’s normal to dream of a white, snowy Christmas, realistically, you’re going to get more snowfall in February than December, without a doubt. So if your girl is more on the practical side, a pair of snow boots is an excellent gift. If she’s more of a fashionista but still practical, booties for women are a superb in-betweener as far as gifts go. You can always go with a classic UGG boot if she’s into the lounge-look, which so many people are these days. Bottom line – with Valentine’s Day occurring in the middle of winter, a pair of stylish boots are definitely in order as the main gift or a thoughtful add-on.
While roses and chocolates or any variation of flower and high-end candy are still a mainstay for Valentine’s Day, you can also give her a bouquet that lasts forever. Several brands on the market provide incredibly decadent options for bouquets that will never wilt or die. Some offer natural roses specially treated and encrusted with real diamonds or rhinestones. You can even opt for the bell jar to cover the pieces – very Beauty and the Beast vibes, but some ladies love them. Besides, it’s one way to show your love year-round, and it’ll never wilt and die. You could do a lot with a poem and a forever flower bouquet.
Get Out Of Town
As mentioned earlier, Valentine’s Day pops up right in the thick of winter, so if budgetary issues do not constrict you, consider giving her the gift of getting out of town together. Not only does she get to wear her bathing suit and sip drinks poolside in someplace tropical, but you also get the added pleasure of accompanying her. Suppose she’s the type of girl that loves winter and all of its snowy vibes. In that case, you could take her to a destination with plenty of snow – get an Airbnb in a chalet and book some snowboarding or skiing adventures to make memories that last a lifetime. Don’t forget to pack some hot chocolate or champagne to sip by the fire.
Vacations are luxurious gift options that you can never go wrong with. Not to mention, hotels and airfare are cheaper than ever right now, so if you haven’t been able to in the past, this could be the year to book it!
Whether you go with the iPhone 13 Pro or the Pro Max, giving her the gift of a new phone this Valentine’s Day is a great idea. Not only will she use it every day, but the swoon-worthy selfies she’ll snap with the camera on the new iPhones will be perfectly captured memories for years to come!
Shopping for gifts can be stressful sometimes, especially when you just have to come up with ideas for Christmas. As mentioned earlier, let those be a starting point for gifts she’ll love and love you more for. Happy Valentine’s Day!
