First, you may want to consider buying your partner some lingerie. Or, buying yourself lingerie and surprising your partner by wearing it for them in the evening. Lingerie is available in all shapes and sizes. So, it’s just about finding something that they are going to be comfortable and happy wearing. You can think about the style as well as the color to ensure that you make the right choice here. If you are not sure which ones to get, speak to your partner about it to see if they can give you some ideas and inspiration. You may be nervous about buying undies and lingerie for your other half, but we say just go for it.

2. Flowers

Flowers are commonly given as a symbol of love and affection, this is what makes them such a great Valentine’s day gift. If your lady isn’t keen on receiving flowers as they don’t have a very long shelf life then you could also give them a plant. These will live longer and keep their home looking and smelling gorgeous. You may find that flowers around Valentine’s day are slightly more expensive than at any other time of the year. However, the bouquets are also outstanding and beautiful. Florists work hard so you can show off their shopping power to the love of your life. If you are buying your other half flowers but they don’t have a vase then how about you get one of these as well. You can get some beautiful vases, even personalized ones.

3. Jewelry

If the lady in your life adores jewelry then why not get her a statement piece to add to her collection? She will never forget the jewelry you buy her and even better if you pair it with a gorgeous jewelry box for her to keep them in. If you have never purchased jewelry before then find out the type she wears. A lot of women can be funny with the jewelry they like, for instance, some don’t wear gold but adore silver. If you want to get something completely different then take a look at a beads bracelet. These can be added every so often, maybe on special occasions.

4. A New Plush

If your partner is a bit of an adrenaline junkie then how about you invest in an experience day for them? This could be absolutely anything from cooking with a top chef to racing around in sports cars. You can find lots of different activities depending on the personal preferences of your partner. For instance, you could plan for them to enjoy a hot air balloon ride. This is considered to be so relaxing that it is believed to add one year onto your life, each time you go up in the air.

6. An Evening Out

You might also want to consider an option such as Love Box. Love Box came out a few years ago but it’s still incredibly popular on places like social media. Love Box is a device that connects to your smart devices such as your phone. This means that you can send little messages directly to the box that your partner has. When you do this, the heart on the box spins letting them know that they have received a new message for you. This makes it a tad more personal and exciting compared to the typical text.

8. Long Distance Bracelets

If you and your other half live apart and you are dealing with a long-distance relationship then you may want to get something meaningful. You can get long-distance bracelets that allow you to feel the touch of the other person even when you are miles apart. They can be a bit hit-and-miss if they work but the reviews are growing and people love them. They are a sentimental touch that shows you care and miss your other half when they are not around. Make sure you do your research if this is something you want to get your other half.

9. A Great Pair of Shoes

Finally, if the love of your life likes their footwear then what better to get them than a gorgeous pair of shoes? They may have been hinting for ages that they want some comfy or warm footwear. If you are good at taking hints and listening to your other half then it is time to start shopping. They may really want a pair of Ugg boots to add to their collection. These can be pricey but they are well worth it, as are other expensive shoes and boots. It is essential you listen to your partner when they are talking about the type of shoes they like, you don’t want to get the wrong pair or even the wrong size!

10. A Framed Photo

How about providing them with the gift of a beautiful memory? You probably have lots of wonderful pictures with your partner. However, it’s likely that many of these are hidden or locked on your mobile phone. This means that they don’t get nearly as much attention as they might deserve. To show you care, you could consider framing a photo like this. Or, you might even want to consider getting it put on a large print that can be displayed on the wall. It all depends on the service that you are using. You can even get a larger display frame that will allow you to put together a collage of memories in one beautiful display.
