It’s only about 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day, and even though we might not celebrate it massively here in the UK, it’s always nice to swap a small token of love with your loved one. Or why not your best friend, your sister or your mum? But what does a girl want for Valentine’s Day? I wrote about presents for men just before Christmas, and those things mentioned would of course be relevant for Valentine’s Day as well. So, here’s a small guide as to what a woman is likely to want for Valentine’s Day, her birthday, your anniversary… or when you just want to treat her because she’s so amazing :)
A gift that would be appreciated by most women is something beauty related. Why not treat her to her favourite perfume, a luxury bath foam, amazing smelling body butter, or a massage oil?
If you’re buying for a wife or girlfriend, something fashionable is always popular. Just make sure you get her style right. The LBD (little black dress) is a classic, or why not invest in a red one for Valentine’s Day? If you’re thinking of buying lingerie – don’t go for something too sexy as this can be a bit awkward. I mean, when is she actually going to wear a corset and stay-ups? Flattering, pretty and most importantly - comfortable and wearable - is important. Alternatively; simply buy her a voucher from somewhere like Victoria’s Secret so that she can go and treat herself to something really luxurious and nice.
Food and drink is next on the list of popular and appreciated gifts for women. Why not get her some personalised wine glasses, or a luxury handmade chopping board – also personalised with both your names (and perhaps also your anniversary) printed on it. This particular one is from Home Wet Bar. Or simply go for the classic wine and chocolates – you can’t go wrong with that!
When it comes to jewellery there’s an endless range to choose from. Be careful though! You don’t want your girlfriend to mistake that little jewellery box with an engagement ring (unless you’re actually planning on proposing to her). All women love jewellery, but just like with the fashion items – make sure you get her style right. An infinity symbol is a great way of showing your love to her. Or why not buy a simple bracelet such as the above one from designer Thomas Sabo? The idea with this is that you buy charms separately to add on to the bracelet, and there’s are hundreds of designs to choose from, meaning this basic bracelet can turn into something really unique and personal.
