Valentines Day Gifts For Girlfriend
Picking out Valentines Day gifts for girlfriend can be tricky. You don't want to choose a cliched Valentine's Day gift for your girlfriend, such as the standard bouquet of roses or box of chocolates, but you also don't want to go so far left-field that she gives you a funny look or thinks about dumping you. Pick Valentine's Day gifts that are romantic while still being a bit practical. Or, choose gifts for Valentine's Day that are pure fun and have nothing to do with hearts and flowers.
- Coupon book. At first glance, it's not that romantic. But giving your girlfriend a Valentine's Day coupon book, filled with coupons for things such as a free car wash, breakfast in bed or her favorite dessert, all prepared by you, is a truly sweet and romantic gesture. Cut the coupon book out of red construction paper and neatly print each "chore" you'll perform on the coupons. Be sure to include a coupon for a free hug and kiss.
- Jewelry. Getting jewelry for your girlfriend for Valentine's Day can be a mine field. Just remember two things: stay away from heart shaped anything, unless she's a heart fanatic, and stick with her metal of choice. If you've never seen your girlfriend wear gold, don't get her a gold necklace for Valentine's Day. Keep it simple, too. Don't splurge on the oversized pendant that will remind her of a necklace her grandmother wore.
- Manicure and Pedicure. Give your girlfriend a certificate to her favorite nail salon for Valentine's Day. She'll get to spend time getting her hands and feet pampered while you can sit back and relax elsewhere. This is a great gift if you're just getting into a relationship and don't want to do anything too lovey-dovey for Valentine's Day just yet.
- Cooking Class. You do everything together, so why not learn to cook. Couples who learn together, stay together. Sign the two of you up for a class at your local culinary school. Choose a somewhat sexy course, such as cake baking or sauteing. If you can, sign up for an introduction to wine or a chocolate making course.
