Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, her birthday or you just want to do something spontaneous to make her happy, finding the right gift for your girlfriend isn’t always easy. Flowers and romantic cards are cool, but you need to go above and beyond if you want to make her smile. Below, we have rounded up five gift ideas for your girlfriend. Let us know your favourite in the comments.
If you want to impress your girlfriend with a gift she’s going to remember, then consider some fashion accessories that she can wear day in, day out. A new D&G shoulder bag, for example, could be a great choice, as she’ll be able to wear it when she’s travelling around town and when she goes for a fancy meal. Other accessories like phone cases, sandals, beach towels and rings are other sensible gift ideas; the more practical and personal you can make it, the better!
Sometimes, you just can’t beat a good old box of chocolates. Whether your girlfriend is a fan of milk chocolate or white chocolate, you should be able to find a selection to suit her tastes – and yours if she’s feeling generous! Incredibly popular in the chocolate world is salted caramel – look around and see if you can find a variety that includes such ingredient to put a smile on her face.
A meal out
Dining out with your other half is one of life’s great pleasures, made even better if it’s paid for in advance. There are so many options to consider when choosing a place to eat; you could opt for a local Italian or chicken restaurant, or you could go upmarket and choose a fancy hotel in town. And if your girlfriend loves nothing more than a pizza or chicken nuggets, then organise a romantic night in for two with a takeaway and a movie. There’s really nothing better.
There’s truly nothing quite as exciting as jumping out of a helicopter and looking down on the world – or climbing to the top of a mountain. If you want to give your girlfriend an experience that she’ll remember forever, consider buying her an experience day package. There are literally thousands of options to consider, from cookery classes to spa days to animal adventures.
Really stumped and don’t know what to buy her? Giving a gift voucher may not seem like the most thoughtful idea, but it means that your girlfriend can pick a gift that she really wants, or save it for a rainy day. This is a particularly sensible option for clothes and underwear, because, let’s face it, some girls are pretty fussy when it comes to finding the right styles. Play it safe!
These gift ideas should serve as a starting point. Plant seeds, ask her friends and do your research in order to find the perfect gift for your loved one. It might not be easy, but seeing her reaction when you present it to her will make it all worthwhile. Good luck with your search!
