How to choose the best Valentine's gifts for her

What makes the best Valentine's Day gift for her isn't so much the gift you choose but the thought that you put into it. The best Valentine's gift for her, therefore, isn't necessarily expensive or extravagant. It's thoughtfully chosen. Still looking for inspiration? Try these ideas...

  1. Reconsider red roses - a traditional gift on Valentine's Day, roses are a timeless, classic choice. But a simple bunch of flowers can also make a very special gift. Especially if you take the time to find out what her favourite flowers are. Ask her!
  2. Tread carefully with jewellery - anything heart-themed is a good choice. If you're choosing jewellery pay close attention to the kind of pieces she usually wears. If she doesn't wear gold, avoid it. And if you're not planning to pop the question any time soon don't even think about a ring - or things could get awkward. Stick to a statement necklace or a beautiful pair of earrings.
  3. It's the thought that counts - To make sure you get the best Valentine's gift for her, think about what she loves doing, how she chooses to spend her free time, and the sort of gifts she chooses for the special people in her life - take inspiration from that. 
  4. Still stuck? If you're still drawing a blank, treat her to something fancy to drink, something delicious to eat, or something beautiful to wear. Or better still, go for all three!
