Romantic Christmas Gift Ideas

Updated on November 22, 2010

Introduction to Romantic Christmas Gift Ideas

The Christmas period is a hectic time for everyone, but it is important to remember not to let the busy festive season get on top of your personal life. If you play things right, Christmas can be the most romantic time of year, and a few romantic Christmas gift ideas can turn the coldest time of the year in to a real time of love and romance.

There are plenty of romantic Christmas gifts out there, but finding the perfect one for the love of your life can be more difficult than anyone would anticipate. It is very easy to second guess yourself when buying a present for a loved one, but the trick is often to lead from your heart.

The important thing is to take things out of the ordinary, surprise the recipient of your romantic Christmas gift. Make sure that the gift is personal, loving, and connects to your other half.

What is a Romantic Christmas Gift?

A romantic Christmas gift is more than just a present, in fact your romantic Christmas gift idea might not be wrappable at all. A trip overseas could just as easily be your gift as a romantic meal, or an item which your loved one has been wanting for a long time.

The real trick is to put some thought in to it, and while some of the more cliché romantic Christmas gift ideas may seem a little bit cheesy nowadays, don't forget that they can go great with a more unique romantic gift this Christmas.

The Cliché Romantic Christmas Gift Ideas

Okay so your imaginative romantic Christmas gift might have taken quite a lot of thought, but it still might appear cliché to the person you love unless you put a little bit of yourself in to it, but what exactly are the gifts which are just so common that they no longer even feel like a gift?

There are some simple items out there that you simply should not give to your loved one unless they are accompanied by another gift.

The items include (but are not limited to)

  • Chocolate
  • Flowers
  • Socks
  • Tools
  • Sweaters
  • Pens
  • Candles
  • Bath Salts

Yes, they are all nice gifts, they are nice, luxurious, and make life a little better for people. But seriously, come on guys. If like me you subjected your mother to around 20 years of chocolates, do not do the same to the new love of your life. Feel free to get her those chocolates, but try and find the ones that mean something!

More Original Romantic Christmas Gift Ideas

Okay so you have decided that maybe you will go a little further than a simple box of chocolates, how do you make it so that your loved one is not only happy with their gift, but that they also feel the connection because of your insight in to their mind.

The first clue is of course very simple, look out for hints. Girls drop a lot more than the boys, but around the festive season keep an ear to the ground, because the most original romantic Christmas gift ideas will come straight from the person you love!

The second thing you can do is take a look at what they are reading. A few simple book titles might surprise your loved one, simply because you noticed!

The final clue is to be original. Okay, this is a bad clue, but lets face it, originality shows you put thought and effort in to the gift. Try and find something a little unique and personal to make your loved one feel special with a truly romantic Christmas gift idea.

Some Sample Romantic Christmas Gift Ideas to Help You Out

Don't worry, I am going to give you more than just a few clues, I am also going to give you some romantic Christmas gift ideas that will get you in to your loved ones good books over the festive season.  I will be showing you a few very simple products which might be suited to your situation, and could definitely put a smile on your partners face.

Chi Hair Straighteners

Hair Straighteners? A Romantic Christmas Gift? Well believe it or not, if the lady in your life has been complaining about her hair straighteners then Chi is the brand you should get. More importantly it shows that you want your lady to look good, and it shows you listen!

Chi Hair Straighteners really do make a great romantic Christmas gift idea. They are about as good as you can get, they won't really break the bank, and they will make a huge difference in the lady's beautification preparations!

Amazon Kindle Romantic Christmas Gift Idea

Does your loved one love to cuddle up in a blanket, sit by the fire and read a good book, well why not give them several million good books all in one handy wireless e-reader device.

The Amazon Kindle makes a great gift for your loved one, especially if they are a bit of a bookworm. It's soft look pages are easy on the eyes, and it is as about as close as you can get to a real book.

While I do think that the Amazon Kindle is a pretty perfect romantic Christmas gift, it is only good if your loved one enjoys reading, remember that you need to be looking for something that shows you [i]know[/i] your partner!

Bath Robe

This might not seem particularly exciting, but rather than struggle with a towel, your partner might love a soft and snug bath robe to wear when they get out of the shower in the cold winter months. This is especially true if your house gets cold over Christmas!

What better way to show you care than to keep your loved one warm after tehy have cleaned themselves? Best of all, a bathrobe can also be used to help keep you warm when you have your pajamas on!

      I like the Kindle idea. It seems to suggest that your other half understands that you need time alone, to yourself.

      Some nice and sweet ideas. I need a guide, since my romantic side is nil. I have to work hard to get it and I love having ideas that didn't come from her.
