Ideas for Buying your Valentines Gift Online

Updated on March 16, 2011

Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on the fourteenth day of February, throughout the World. Traditionally it is a day for lovers to share their love for each other by the giving and receiving of Valentine’s Day cards, flowers, chocolates and many other gifts.  Originally it was associated with notes of love which were expressed with the symbols of heart-shaped outlines, with doves and pictures of the winged cupid.


No it is not the size or price of your gift it is the thought and love that goes with it.  With that said what are you going to buy this year?

Are you looking for something unique that will last for years to come like jewelry or would you prefer something that you can share together like a great box of tasty chocolates?


Your choice of gift may depend on the length of your relationship.  If you have only just started dating, and are not sure of the persons feelings for you then do not spend too much on a gift to impress her.  You could be wasting your money, if your new friend’s feelings are not appreciated or returned.


Most of all tell the one you love how much you love her/him.  Be considerate and try to spend the day together. Plan a special day together whether it’s a picnic on the beach, or on the lake, make it special for each other.  



Gift Cards

Here are a few Gift Suggestions

Romantic Valentine’s Day Cards- You can never go wrong by giving a lovely card. Choose one with appropriate wording on the inside. One that tells her/him how you feel about them.

Create your own card- You can be creative and make your own card, this can be made out of several types of pretty paper or card. You could buy white card then cut out a heart shape in the front and glue red shiny paper behind the cutout. Write happy Valentine’s Day on the front, and then compose a lovely poem on the inside. Finish it off by drawing a picture of a dove or cupid in one corner. Be creative and let your imagination guide you.

Gift of beautiful flowers


Flowers – Red Roses are a favorite for most occasions and especially at this time. The gift of a single rose with a card would be lovely.

If you have been together for several years then buy one for each year that you have been together

Gift of Chocolates


Chocolates- This is a great gift for the chocoholic.  Although you need to use your head, if they are already overweight and dieting then avoid buying this gift, flowers would be more suitable in this situation.


Gift of Jewelry

This is something that most girls or women would truly appreciate. These days many men wear jewelry nearly as much as women.


Necklaces- you can choose gold or silver from a variety of shapes and different types like rope, link or large heavier chains.  Then you could even buy a heart locket with a photo of you both together inside.

Gifts of Bracelets and Earings

Bracelets - ankle or wrist ones. Surprise them with something different like a charmed one.

Ear rings- You can choose beaded ones, silver or gold single or double ones.

Important note

Whatever you buy each other make it a memorable occasion that you can share together. The value of the gift is not important if the person loves you. Sharing your love together is more important than how much you spend this Valentines Day.

Buy a wonderful gift basket

Gift Baskets- If you really cannot think of anything suitable then buy them a beautiful gift basket.
