The best Valentine’s gifts for her are thoughtful, meaningful, and at least a little bit romantic. Here’s our pick of the best Valentine gifts for girlfriends and wives.
The best Valentine’s Day gifts for her are tailored to her personal tastes and style. Some women love big romantic gestures – like delivering red roses to her office, whisking her away for the weekend, or lavishing her with an indulgent Valentine’s hamper(opens in a new tab) gift. Others prefer to give meaningful tokens of affection that last, such as personalised jewellery or keepsake pieces.
‘Finding the perfect Valentine’s gift for her is a minefield,’ says Goodto.com family editor, Stephanie Lowe. ‘What delights one woman can make another cringe. Pay close attention to the gifts she buys for her friends, and go for something similar. If she’s a jokey present-buyer, she’ll appreciate a Valentine’s gift that makes her laugh. Flowers and wine are more meaningful to her than gifts that contain flowers or wine. You can also ask her what gifts she likes. That’s one question we like being asked!’

What is the best gift for your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day?
Ultimately, what makes the best Valentine’s Day gift for the woman you love is the thought that you put into it. It doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Red roses are a traditional gift for your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day but a simple bunch of flowers can make a very special gift – if you take the time to find out what her favourite flowers are. Champagne and jewellery are also popular Valentine’s gifts for girlfriends. You can take inspiration from what she enjoys doing, how she spends her time, and what kind of gifts she chooses to give the people she cares about. And if you’re still drawing a bank, treat her to something fancy to drink, something delicious to eat, or something beautiful to wear. Even better, get all three!
Stephanie Lowe, GoodtoKnow Family Editor offers additional advice:
Don’t laugh, but one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts I ever got was a pair of bed socks! Yes, really. He knew that my feet get cold when I’m in bed. But he remembered me saying I don’t wear socks in bed as I overheat and it’s a pain trying to get them off when I’m half asleep. These socks were so loose that I could pull them off with one foot without even waking, he bought them. What was the best part of this gift? Knowing he had really listened to me and remembered what I’d said. Aw.
