Getting a Valentine’s Day present is stressful, especially if you’re in a new relationship, and, before you say it, flowers aren’t always the best way to a girl’s heart. Not everyone likes them (I don’t!), and it’s always lovely to get something you’re actually really craving or need.
We’ve found you 12 Valentine’s Day gifts for her, so you can just sneakily send this list to your boyfriend, just to give them a gentle nudge in the right direction, or buy something from here for your girlfriend. There’s something for every budget on this list too, whether you want to buy something cheap and cute, or splash the cash.[nextpage title=”Next”]
1) ALDO Mundare Mixed Strap Watch
A nice watch doesn’t have to be expensive, as this gorgeous one from ALDO proves. It’s also perfect for the indecisive among us, as it comes with five different straps to mix and match with your outfit. We’re also liking the fact that the four and the eight are on show, rather than the three, six and nine, because it just adds that extra unique touch.
You can buy this ALDO watch set from ASOS for £30.[/nextpage]
Perfume is always a winner, and, unless you’re buying Britney Spears’ Fantasy, you can’t really go wrong. My favourite scent at the moment is La Vie Est Belle by Lancome, and I’ve had quite a lot of compliments on it, so it can’t just be me that loves it! Made with magnolia essence, iris pallida, white flowers absolute and patchouli essence, this is a very sweet perfume, so don’t buy it for anyone who prefers a musky fragrance.
You can buy the La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum from Boots for £48.50 for 50ml.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
3) Heart Umbrella
This rainy/snowy weather is horrendous at the moment, but this heart-shaped umbrella will definitely cheer you up AND shield you from anything nature throws at you. It comes in pink, hot pink (seen above) and red, so choose wisely.
You can buy this heart umbrella from Find Me A Gift for £13.99-16.99, depending on which colour you choose.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
4) Personalised Mix Tape MP3 Player
The mix tape is always a winner, as it’s something so personalised, but it’s now officially had an update from actually being a cassette to an MP3 player that just looks like a tape. Not only will it be personalised with all your SO’s favourite songs, you can also put your name on it too for that added touch.
You can buy this mix tape from Getting Personal for £14.99.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
5) My Side Your Side Duvet Cover Set
Nothing says romance like a present you can use together, and this duvet set is perfect for the couple who constantly fight over space in the bed. It comes in a choice of red, purple, blue or grey, and a choice of king or double size.
This duvet cover set is available to buy from Amazon for £23.43 for the double and £27.48 for the king.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
6) Bold Street Sweets Bespoke Hamper
You can’t go wrong with sweets, especially not if it’s a bespoke hamper of all your SO’s favourite treats – much more personal than a box of Cadbury’s Milk Tray (although they are very tasty). Bold Street Sweets has chocolate and sweets to suit everyone’s tastes, and, from experience, I know that the Liverpool-based sweet shop is able to make the gifts look absolutely stunning too.
You can buy a hamper from Bold Street Sweets from £15 upwards.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
7) ASOS Valentines Pug Socks
If you don’t buy into Valentine’s Day as much as others, but still want to get something small and cute, these pug socks are perfect. You can never have too many socks!
These socks are available to buy from ASOS for £4.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
8) Flower Centre Stone Bib
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to mean over-the-top expensive jewellery. This necklace from Oasis is so pretty, with a lovely design and bright colours. We’re sold on it!
This necklace is available to buy from Oasis for £25.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
9) L’Agent By Agent Provocateur Iana Underwear Set
We understand that buying underwear for your girlfriend is stressful, but no girl is going to say no to this gorgeous underwear set, even if you decide to just buy the bra. It’s stunning, and so sexy but also demure. Agent Provocateur can do no wrong, and your SO is probably going to be much happier bought this than one of those awful ribbon outfits to be untied with (because that just SCREAMS sexy).
You can buy the set from ASOS for a total of £133. The bra costs £65, the knickers are £28 and the suspenders are £40.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
10) View Quest Retro Mini DAB Radio
The View Quest Retro Mini may look like your everyday cute retro DAB radio, but it’s had a big update. With Bluetooth connectivity, you’re able to stream Spotify, podcasts or anything from your phone or laptop, with really great sound quality. Plus, it also acts as the perfect DAB radio alarm clock, and is so easy to use. Even better; the Retro Mini is available in so many different colours that we struggled to choose a favourite! We’d recommend going for a colour that will coordinate with your SO’s bedroom.
The Retro Mini radio is available from the View Quest website for £59.99.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
11) Firebox Hot Boots
Give the gift of warmth this Valentine’s Day, with these slippers that heat up after a couple of minutes in the microwave. With an added lavender scent, these may be the best slippers EVER! My feet are always the first thing to go cold, so I’d be so grateful for some of these and would certainly get some wear out of them.
These boots are available from Firebox for £16.99.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
12) My Future Listography Book
Lists are one of the best things to pass the time, but still make you think you’re being productive. This book full of lists you can write, including practical ones you could tick off gradually, like places to visit, and stranger ones, like where you’d time-travel to. The dreamer will love this present.
My Future Listography is available to buy from Urban Outfitters for £11.99.[/nextpage]
