It may be Valentine’s Day, the anniversary of first meeting, your wedding anniversary, the birth of your child or it may just be that you want to let your beloved know in a tangible way how much affection and gratitude you feel towards them for being in your life. Below are a few ideas to help you out.
Romantic gifts are those where you want your loved one to understand the depth of your feelings towards them. Therefore, your gift needs to consider your partners likes and dislikes, interests and hobbies. The best romantic gifts are those that are a surprise to the receiver that shows that you have been listening to what they have said and understand what is important to them and what it is they really like.
Listen, Look and Learn
When choosing a romantic gift, remember back to conversations you have had where your loved one has mentioned something they are passionate about. This could be a new band they have heard (get their latest album or tickets to a concert), a book they have read (get other books by the same author), something they would like to learn (book a class), a place they would like to see (arrange a visit) or an experience they would like, such as a tandem sky-dive (book the experience). Try and think if there is anything that can give you a clue as to what would be the perfect romantic gift for them.
It’s not just what your partner says. Have you noticed when out shopping if there is an item they have stared at in a shop window, but could not justify spending that money on themselves? This may be the romantic gift you are looking for as it shows you are attentive and caring.
Unique Gifts for your Unique Woman
The best romantic gifts have a personal touch. Perhaps you have some photographs of you both on your phone that you both like. Put the best in a silver frame and have it engraved with a personal message. You can buy multiple photo frames to create a collage. Your gift could be a photo-printer that can attach to a smartphone so you can print out photographs that you both love at any time.
Romantic gifts don’t have to cost much money. A love letter is priceless when written from the heart how you feel about your loved one. Written by hand on paper lightly scented by your favorite cologne, the effort is always much appreciated. If you lack a bit of confidence, get a book of love poetry and borrow from the experts. If there is a particular verse that has meaning for you both, perhaps something used at your wedding, have that printed and framed to grace the walls of your home as a reminder of your wedding and the love you share.
Flowers, jewelry and chocolates are obvious romantic gifts, but you can make these personal to your partner too. Flowers symbolise many forms of love, so you can choose one to fit what it is you want to say. Red roses are an obvious choice for love and passion, but consider Tulips for pure love or lilies that represent friendship and devotion.
We all know that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but consider her style and her personality before you go straight for the grand gesture. A cuff bracelet with gems might be more her style than a pair of diamond earrings or a heart-shaped necklace (check valentinesgiftideas.org). There are good quality synthetic gems if your budget doesn’t stretch to natural gems. You might decide it more suitable to get jewelry with her birthstone or personalised with her name.
Chocolates are another obvious romantic gift. It’s an easy gesture to buy a heart-shaped box of chocolates from the local store, so try making your own chocolate candy or look for an acclaimed chocolatier for the very best for your love. When you are alone, bake some chocolate chip cookies, (use a mix if you want to be sure) so that your home smells great when she returns.
Cook a meal that you can eat at home under soft lighting, with vanilla scented candles and your favorite music playing in the background. Include ‘your song’ if you have one or add potential options onto your play-list.
Over time, you have learned the little things that your partner likes. Show that you are aware of this and put together a gift basket with a collection of little presents. Dress up a box with ribbons and tissue paper and fill with a nice bottle of wine, a romantic movie, some massage oil and write a few love coupons offering breakfast in bed, a pedicure, a kiss and a cuddle… let your imagination run.
