Happy Valentine’s Day season, lovebirds. Here’s how to impress your wife, fiancé, girlfriend, or that cute girl in your building that you’ve been flirting with for months: Don’t get her that gaudy chocolate diamond necklace that jewellery stores are shoving down your throat.
That’s it, that’s the whole gift guide.
Maybe it’s not that easy, but finding a romantic Valentine’s Day gift that’s not a complete cliché doesn’t have to be hard. It can all be summed up in one question: Why give jewellery every year when she’s been complaining about how crappy her tablet is?
Real romance isn’t about the amount of money you spend or picking out the biggest bouquet of roses (though that is still very much an acceptable add-on). It’s about showing that you pay attention to her complaints, hone in on her gushing about stuff she likes, and showing how much you appreciate what she does for you by gifting something that makes her life easier.
From wine and beauty subscriptions to smart home devices and personalised items, there’s an option for whatever type of lady you’ve got on your hands — even if that type is super picky.
These are the best gift ideas for her this Valentine’s Day.
