The all-important day of love and romance is around the corner. It’s a time for couples to celebrate their relationship. For the singletons, it might be time to give someone you have your eye on a card or gift and let your affections be known. It can be tricky deciding what to buy for the special woman in your life, so this guide is here to inspire you.
The sentimental gift: A sentimental present will do well for those who truly want to represent their love in gift form, which is where personalised gifts come in handy. Many brands can customise gifts, whether it’s a photo frame, a scented candle, decorative cushion, or keyring – there will be something to suit her tastes.
The gift with character: Buying something new may be the easiest choice, but it’s not always the best. The lady in your life may appreciate a kind of character to her gift that only antiques can provide. Not only do antiques look beautiful, but collecting antiques is a wonderful hobby that gives us a peek into the past. If she is well-traveled, she may appreciate an antique that represents the history of a culture.
Top tip: knowing the upcoming antique trends to invest in is a wise move.
The homemade gift: You may be thinking that homemade gifts are for children, but that is not always the case. A homemade gift can say a lot of things. It lets her know you put thought, time and effort into your gift decision. How you craft the gift comes from the heart, and the finished product will remind her of you, for sure. A coupon jar is a simple yet romantic homemade gift. Coupons can include activities like watching a movie together or cooking her dinner. If her love language is acts of service, this gift will bode well.
The gift of experience: Some of the best gifts are intangible. Gifting your special someone an experience shows you care and will also create a lasting memory for you to cherish. Experiences can range from a virtual cooking masterclass to a hot-air-balloon ride. A day of paintballing or even indoor skydiving could be on the cards for the more adventurous woman.
The traditional gift: Many women just want to know you have thought of them and will not expect a fancy gift. If the lady in your life believes it’s the thought that counts, a traditional gift will do the trick. Flowers, a box of chocolates, or a detailed card with thoughtful words or a poem are all romantic options.
The gift subscription: Although Valentine’s Day is the official day of love, showing your affection does not have to be limited to one day a year; this is where a gift subscription comes in. A beautiful flower arrangement can become a monthly recurrence, for example. Many florists offer subscriptions so that you can remind her of your love regularly.
