Valentine\'s Gift Ideas for A Special Lady

It’s rapidly approaching the time when if you haven’t already you should be starting to think about Valentine’s day gift ideas for the special person in your life. If you generally leave it until the last moment don’t. Knowing what to buy can be quite a challenge even if you’ve been with someone a long time, so it’s worth thinking it through rather than dashing round the shops on the morning of the 14th February. Get it wrong and you may receive a very cool response and it may spoil a whole day or entire evening.

Here are some things you need to consider when buying a present, particularly if you’ve decided to opt for traditional ones such as red roses, chocolates, jewellery, lingerie.

What do you know about her likes and dislikes?

If you think that you know the special woman in your life really well and you’ve bought presents for her before that she’s obviously liked, then you probably have an idea of what you might buy. But if you’re not sure ask someone – her best friend, her mother and if you can’t talk to them get advice from a female colleague at your place of work.

Single red rose

Does the woman in your life like red roses? Don’t buy a single red rose from a garage or seller at the side of the road. They don’t feel very special and normally they don’t last. And actually they’re not very good value for money and the chances are unless she’s about 14 she probably won’t be very impressed.

Bunch of Flowers

Make sure that you understand what sort of flowers she likes. If you have no idea find out. Just because red roses are a traditional gift it doesn’t mean you have to give them. Personally I would be horrified to get a bunch of red roses because I don’t like them – and even worse would be a bunch of mixed coloured flowers. I only like white flowers in the house. Okay I’m fussy, but lots of women will have very firm ideas of what they like and what they don’t

Box of Chocolates

Of course chocolates are a popular present to give but before you go out and buy them – is she on a diet? If she is she won’t appreciate being given some not even as a treat. They’ll either go in the bin or be thrown away or she’ll eat them all and then be cross with you for having helped her to break her diet. If she does like chocolates and you know she would enjoy a box make sure you know what type of chocolate she likes.

Fancy Lingerie

Buy lingerie that she will like, not the lingerie you like! Lovely if you’re tastes are very similar but it’s an area where many men get it wrong. Not only does the material matter, but you also need to know their size. If in doubt don't!

Jewellery

Do you understand her taste in jewellery? What metal does she prefer? What type does she wear. If she wears small discreet jewellery it’s unlikely that she’s going to suddenly want something large and flamboyant.

Summary

There’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t buy a traditional Valentine’s Day gift. Just make sure that you know the type of things that the special woman in your life likes.

Have you thought about what you’re going to buy yet?
