Updated on January 31, 2015

Romantic Gifts to Surprise Her

Valentine's Day can be a very special day for couples. Although not everyone exchanges gifts, it's often traditional to give your significant other a present. It might be something small, something homemade, or something extravagant. If you're looking for a special and romantic gift this Valentine's Day, take a look through these choices.

Valentine's Necklaces

Jewelry is a classic Valentine's Day gift. Tried, tested, and true, it's always a safe bet if you're not sure what to give her this year. The tricky part is to find jewelry to suit her taste. Everyone is so different, this isn't always easy. Something versatile is a good idea if you're not sure. A necklace is always a good idea, too, since almost any woman likes to wear them (not everyone likes bracelets or rings).

A pearl is such a classic symbol of elegance. I absolutely love this pear teardrop necklace and I'm sure just about any woman would be thrilled to have this for a Valentine's Day gift. It's symbol but gorgeous.

What can be more romantic than telling a woman she has your heart forever? This heart necklace is a special way to tell her you love her this Valentine's Day.

 

You don't need to go out to a fancy restaurant for Valentine's Day. A home-cooked meal can be more intimate and special.

Other Jewelry

If you're not looking for a necklace, or if you're hoping to get something to match a necklace, try a bracelet, ring, or other piece of jewelry. You can go simple or fancy, depending on what you think she would like.

One of the best aspects of jewelry is that it's so small, you can sneak it to dinner easily without her noticing. If she's not expecting something, jewelry is a wonderful way to surprise her.

Giving her a matching set of earrings and necklace will complete her Valentine's outfit. Diamonds are always great for jewelry in any form.

I am not often a fan of wearing rings, but this beautiful heart ring would be one that would change my mind. Because it's flat, it won't get caught on things and is a wonderful way to give her your heart this Valentine's Day.

 

Instead of a gift, you can always take her away for a romantic weekend.

Cookies are Great for Valentine's Day

If you want to add a personal, homemade touch to your gift or you are on a budget, homemade cookies are a great way to go. Of course, they should be in a heart shape to celebrate the holiday. If you're creative, you can also add icing and maybe even write her a romantic message on the cookie.

If you haven't done a lot of baking in the past, you might want to do a few test runs, first. Even a standard cookie recipe doesn't always turn out the way it's supposed to, and you want to have time to make tweaks and adjustments. That also gives you time to practice your icing techniques!

The different sizes of hearts gives you variety and lets you choose if you want bigger cookies or more bite sized treats.

 

Valentine's Day was first linked to romance in Chaucer's time, though it wasn't until the 18th century that the exchange of small gifts became common.

Pamper Her for Valentine's Day

Every woman loves to be pampered. Some of these gifts might not seem romantic, but almost any woman would love them. Spas are incredibly expensive, so to be able to give herself a "home spa" day can be really great. And if you want to add a level of romance, spoil her by giving her a pedicure, manicure, and massage.

I love pedicures and most women will agree with me that they're a fantastic treat. However, they're also expensive. This home foot spa gives her the chance to spoil herself anytime she wants.

A bath can be so relaxing, especially if you add candles and wine. But, not all bathtubs are the most comfortable. Make her feel like she's at the spa with this comfortable bath pillow that reaches right down to the bottom of the tub.
