Buying gifts for the woman in your life can be tricky (no would pretend otherwise!). Whether you’re completely stuck for ideas, or you just need a little guidance or inspiration – hopefully this guide will make sure you’re on the right travel to gifting success!
Romantic Events / Dates
If you’re buying an anniversary gift (probably the most romantic date in your calendar) then pay attention to what your other half says and does around the time. Chances are she’ll drop some hints for you and hopefully help you out. Alternatively, you could follow the traditional anniversary gift-giving tradition (first year is paper, and so on). If you’re looking for golden wedding anniversary gifts for her then make sure you push the boat out! Jewellery, a holiday, a designer handbag – a Golden anniversary i a big mile stone – so make sure you’ve gone over the top (rather than played it down).
Some couples celebrate Valentines Day, some don’t. If you’re unsure what the situation is (maybe it the first time you’ve spent V-Day together) a big bunch of roses and a heart-felt card goes a long way. If you know that you’ll be celebrating, then a big home-cooked meal and candles will work wonders (here are some recipes to try). Or (if you’re not the best cook) a table at your favourite restaurant, or perhaps where you had your first date will work great too. Failing that – jewellery is always romantic.
Cheap Birthday Gift
Maybe finances aren’t your best friend at the moment – or maybe you’re saving up for a house, a pet or children, etc. If you’re on a tight budget, something handmade or heart-felt is where you want to aim. A simple framed photograph will mean a lot, or perhaps just an old-fashioned love letter. For more creative types – a scrapbook of photos and quotes will mean a lot and show lots of effort and thought.
Expensive Birthday Gift
If budget is no issue then the possibilities are endless. A weekend away in a glamorous city, or a spa break is the perfect way to say “I Love You” and make sure you can spend some quality time together too.
A Random Act of Kindness
If you just want to buy something nice for them to make them smile – anything nostalgic will do the trick. A bunch of her favourite flowers, a mixed tape, or a romantic meal. If you’re still dating and just want to give them something to make them smile, these all work really well too!
