Romantic Gifts for a Wife's Birthday

Updated on September 17, 2013

Romantic Ideas a Wife Will Love

Let's leave the number of candles on her birthday cake aside for a moment. They really do not count. What matters is how you have made her feel on her big day. This cannot be repeated often enough. With women, the one thing that never fails to work like a charm is romance. Even if all you can come up with is a bar of chocolate (and well you might, given the enormous constraints most of us battle in these days of inflation) if it is presented in a romantic manner, then that's all that will really register.

So, this is what it really boils down to - tons of romance. Which is why it is good idea to keep this handy list of the top romantic presents ideas for your wife's birthday.

What matters is how you have made her feel on her big day

Important Warning! - You cannot get away with giving your wife flowers every year!

Many men delude themselves into believing that feigned smile and gratitude they get when presenting their wife with flowers for the 15th birthday in a row is genuine. It is most likely not. Ordering flowers online is easy (too easy) and, your wife knows that. She knows how little effort and thought went into the process. That makes sending a bunch of flowers every year and thinking that's enough an insult. If this is you, be advised that you are not getting away with it. She is disgruntled. And you deserve the divorce she's plotting right now!

1. Customised perfume for her

You know her favourite fragrance by now (and if you don't, you'd better find out). There are plenty of perfume shops which customise a perfume as per specifications. Just imagine. Her very own signature perfume and one which she can enjoy refills for as many times as she wants. That's her romantic gift solved for many a year to come!

2. Customised leather handbag or a travel bag

Again, there are designers who cater to such a request and can come up with exactly what you are looking for. You can choose the colour, the design, right down to the kind of buckles and straps you wish to have on the bag. You can have her initials engraved on the clasp outside for that added pizzazz.

3. A spa package

Choose a really good one where she can immerse herself in the quiet ambience and sensuous massages and come home feeling totally rejuvenated. Arrange for her to be picked and dropped home. The final flourish will be a lovely evening out after all that pampering. After all, she would want to flaunt her glowing appearance.

Be Romantic

A survey conducted by UK retailer of gifts for women, pressies4princesses.co.uk, found over two-thirds of women want romance more than extravagant gifts or red hot passion!

4. Organise a romantic treasure hunt

Leave a trail of scented notes for her to follow in the house. Each note should carry and short but romantic message for her and lead her to a cute gift. The last and final note will lead her to where the real action is -- her birthday gift. Imagine the squeals of delight when she finally locates it!

5. Share her burden

Although this may seem outwardly very plebeian and not even remotely romantic, a husband sharing the household burden can be extremely romantic for a woman. Particularly, if she's a harried homemaker who is juggling myriad responsibilities. Her birthday is the day to make her feel totally relaxed and free from domestic chores. So doing them can be one of the best presents for a lady to receive. Arrange for help so that she can just do what she wants to. Laze around, catch up on her reading, go for that much-postponed facial or manicure, you get the picture. Take her out for a quiet, romantic dinner or, if you fancy donning an apron, cook her one yourself at home.

For centuries poetry has been considered the ultimate format for romantic expression. In olden times, educated men would attempt to woo the apple of their eye with evocative rhyme, confessing their undying love. And, from Shakespeare to Wordsworth's "Tis Said, That Some Have Died For Love" or Ted Hughes more graphic and recent poems, the trials and tribulations of love won and lost have been captured in verse by infamous poets for centuries. But, if rhyming couplets aren't exactly your strong point, do not fear, because a new gift does the hard bit for you; now you can commission your own unique bespoke poetry about your darling wife, celebrating her and your wonderful times together in vivid verses of perfectly punctuated prose. Buy this for your wife and shop online for personalised gifts here.
