Valentines Day Gifts For Your Wife

Updated on February 19, 2012

Gift Ideas For Your Wife On Valentines Day

When you've been married for awhile to your nagging but generally amazing wife, you get used to buying her the same type of gifts over the years and while there's nothing wrong with that, it may get a littleĀ boring for your wife when you buy her the same underwear every year on Valentines day, so what I suggest is to go out and treat your Mrs and here are some top ideas for you to get some Valentines Day points of thoughtfulness and make you seem likeĀ the best husband around.

Chocolate is a popular gift idea and instead of buying her the standard heart shaped box of chocolates, you could make your own chocolates or candy with a little bit of creative genius and she will be more thrilled that you made something for her than just going out and buying her a box of chocolates, you could buy some chocolate covered strawberries or some other candy that you know she likes in addition to making her some special chocolate gifts, I personally like the idea of making gifts as opposed to just buying them, because for one reason, it saves money and you aren't giving into the commercialism of yearly events and the other is that, what says more a well thought out home made gift or a gift you bought for a few dollars?.

Jewelry is a great gift idea and one of the very popular ones, however you don't want to trap yourself into buying similar jewelry gifts every year, you want to get her something special that will appeal to her own taste in jewelry. making your own jewelry could work, but only if you don't make it cheap looking as they may not thank you for it, unless they adore your sense of creativity, then do that you cheap skate!!

One of the best things that I did and will do every year because it's great is to draw some homemade free time coupons that will because we have kids and so to let her do what she wants on the days that she chooses, this will give her a much needed break and whilst she's out, me and the kids can make her an extra special gift that will be a surprise for her when she returns later on, I always think that this is a very thoughtful gift to let your wife have some time to herself, particularly if she doesn't get out much and has been seeing to the kids all week and most weeks while the husband is out and about working.

Valentines day is one of the days I used to dread as I never knew what to buy my wife, but as the years go on, I suppose you have a full year to think about what to get her or what to make that she will like and love you for.

Amazon below has some great Valentines Day gift ideas, your best bet is looking there for something to buy, make sure you treat your Mrs, if she deserves it that is, if not, just get her a plastic bag to go and do some shopping for your tea!

      I've given artwork or shirts, scarves and other gifts hand painted with fabric paint. I always try to add something unique to the standard Valentine's Day gifts. Don't want to be stereotyped as a "typical guy."

      Hope you're doing well these days.

      My wife deserves it after the past year hasn't been all that great for her, so this year it's her special day, so I think it's important to do this stuff to make sure you care!
