Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year that you can go all-put for your girlfriend, giving her everything that her heart desires. It’s the one day of the year that you are expected to put everything else aside – your friends, work problems, Playstation nights with the guys, drinks in the bar after work – everything! Everything is put aside so that you can spoil your lovely lady and it pays to make an effort. It does only come around once per year after all.
If you’re struggling to come up with ideas on what to get your girlfriend for Valentine’s Day, and could do with a cheeky little helping hand, you’ve come to the right place. Written by girls, for girls – here’s what to get your girlfriend for Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her That Won’t Break the Bank
Let’s say that you don’t have a small fortune that you can spend on your girlfriend for Valentine’s Day 2015. Let’s assume that you only have a small budget to impress and win over your beautiful girlfriend. The good news is that you can come up with an extravagant looking array of gifts for your ‘better half’, and perfume is always a great place to start.
Do you know what kind of perfume your girlfriend would usually wear? If you do, buy her a bottle of her favourite fragrance. If you aren’t sure, look at what kind of person she is. If she’s fun loving with a passion for all things summery and happy, you should look at Honey by Marc Jacobs. 100ml is just over £40 so it’s not going to break the bank, and the bottle itself is simply adorable.
If you’re girlfriend is a girly kind of person with a love for all things pink, a really good perfume to go for is Forever & Ever by Dior – a pink, elegant, simple bottle with a real girlie, pink, sweet fragrance inside, it’s a must-have for any Barbie-loving princess, but at over £70 for 100ml, it’s one you may need to save up for.
On the slightly cheaper end of the scale, you do have a few other options. Lady Million by Paco Robanne, for example, is a really sweet, heavier fragrance that works well for luscious nights out, and Vera Wang Princess is another classic example of a perfume that all the ladies seem to love. Jean Paul Gaultier Classique is a slightly more grown up fragrance and again, on the slightly more expensive end of things, is a true luxury gift that any lady will love.
If perfume seems a bit too cliche for you, why not consider a bouquet of flowers? Roses are a beautiful and classic idea for Valentine’s Day but to be honest, as romantic as they are, they are a little overdone and everyone and anyone seems to get roses these days. Why not think a little outside the box and opt for a slightly more unique display of flowers for your Valentine’s Day gift for her? What’s her favourite colour? Why not opt for a bouquet that matches this, instead of the classic pinks, reds and whites that you would normally associate with the day? Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean everything needs to be played by the rules.
If her favourite colour is purple, for example, you could go for an orchid plant rather than a bouquet, and daffodils, tulips, lilies, carnations and many other flowers are all great for yellows, orange and red bouquets. You aren’t just restricted to roses. Just take a look at these 10 Singapore Orchids as a classic example – under £20, lots a lot more expensive than it is, and will have so much more of an impact if they actually mean something to your girlfriend.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her When You Want to Splash the Cash
Let’s say that you’ve been saving for a while and you’ve got a little more money to spend on her. You want a gift that will not only show your true affections for her, but will also show you how much you think she might be worth. Valentine’s Day might not always be about extravagance and expense but sometimes it is OK to want to spend your hard earned cash on her.
Of course, there are a few prime examples of lavish Valentine’s Day gifts you could get her for 2015. Christian Louboutin shoes are a DEFINITE winner with most girls, and as long as you get her shoe size right, it wouldn’t really matter what kind of shoe you buy her, she’ll love it because it comes in that brown box with those red soles! These shoes can cost in excess of £500 which is nice if you can afford it, but if you can’t quite stretch that far, the Christian Louboutin book (with pictures of all his shoe designs) is a tad more affordable at £55.
Another prime example of a really great Valentine’s Day gift for her is a Michael Kors watch and we personally guarantee this is on pretty much every girl’s wish list for the up and coming big day. A Gucci handbag is another great idea, especially something versatile like this Gucci Women Tote Bag grande Sukey in Black. Weighing it at over £600 (down from over £1200!), it’s a gift that will bring a smile to her face but might just break the bank. If you can’t quite stretch that far, why not consider something like this amazing Kate Spade leopard print purse? Under £200 and something any animal-print lover will absolutely fall in love with!
DIY Valentine’s Gifts for Her to Win Her Heart
Let’s say that it’s not all about the expense or what you buy your girlfriend for Valentine’s Day 2015. Let’s say that you’re looking for something that will show her how much you love her, something that will win her heart if you are struggling to do so already (or have been a bad boy recently and need to make it up to her).
Has she been working hard recently? Why not treat her to a relaxing day and night to do whatever she wants – send the kids somewhere, make sure you have the house to yourselves, and lock yourself in to do whatever she wants you to do? When are definitely overworked and underpaid these days and nine times out of ten, if you were to ask any busy woman what she’d really want to Valentine’s Day, she’d say a rest and some peace and quiet!
Why not put on some of her favourite music (or buy her that CD she keeps telling you she wants), put it on, cook her the dinner of her choice, lie her down and treat her to a relaxing massage to relieve her stresses and chill her out? Who knows what will happen once you’ve got her nice and comfortable….
The His and Hers Massage Oil Gift Set is only £10.99 and gives you everything you need to relax her body and mind. Watch a few YouTube videos to see how the professionals do it and follow the idea with oils designed to relax and seduce, and use the wooden massager to really get to grips with those hard to relieve areas.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy getting to grips with her yourself, why not buy her a spa pamper experience day and let someone professionally trained rub out her stresses and strifes? With over 500 locations around the UK, the Spa, Beauty and Pampering Experience will give her the choice to choose the pamper treatment she really wants, and earns you some serious brownie points. All you need to do is figure out how you want to use them…
If you’d rather go with something a little more personal than that, you could always create your own at-home pamper experience with a homemade gift hamper filled with all of her favourite expensive and luxurious bath salts, bubble bath, bath bombs and more. A simple wicker basket filled with a few of her favourite things is something guaranteed to go down well, and isn’t a gift that will cost a fortune too!
Naughty Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her
If you want to delight your girlfriend this Valentine’s Day rather than woo, why not consider the idea of getting her a naughty Valentine’s gift that she will actually enjoy? Think outside of the box here – the lingerie you buy her is really for your benefit, that penis ring you bought is really for your benefit… Isn’t it time that you bought her something that was just for her benefit? Something that she can use when you’re NOT around that will give her the ultimate pleasure?
There are a number of secret vibrators and discreet body massagers available out there if you’re only just starting to test the waters – something that won’t frighten her off too much. The Incognito Lipstick Massager is less than £10 and offers great vibrations for such a small and secret little toy. If you want something bigger that is almost guaranteed to get her where she needs to go, you need to take a look at something more powerful like the Love Magic Wand Massager – multipurpose, quiet, silicone for smoothness, and 20 different speeds… That’s a Valentine’s Day gift for her that she’ll really appreciate!
Of course, there is a real extra special treat you could get her to rock her socks off this V-day. How do you feel about tying her up, blindfolding her, and worshipping every inch of her body? When you take away the sense of sight, all of the other sense of the body are heightened, so the S&M Satin Blindfold is a must-have item if you want to truly spoil her this year. Why not match the item with a sexy feather duster to slowly drape all over her body, or maybe even a body massager to awaken her senses? The possibilities are endless and if you want to make her happy, naughty Valentine’s Day gifts for her that are truly meant for her, will do just that.
