Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Every Girl

Red heart on a wood background

Ok, guys, this one’s for you. If you received a link to this Valentine’s Day gift guide post via text from your girlfriend, wife or partner, I have some news — she doesn’t want flowers and a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day this year.

Don’t get me wrong. Flowers and chocolate are perfectly fine gifts on any other day of the year. Show up with a dozen ruby red roses impulsively — with no holiday pressuring you to do it — and you’re golden. But on V Day, the bouquet and truffles can feel like a box checked or a task completed. Giving her the default gift falls a teensy bit short as a genuine expression of love.

A better option is the gift that reflects who she is and what’s important to her. And of course that sounds nice in theory, but it’s fairly tough to implement. So here’s what I’ve got to make things easier, a Valentine’s Day gift guide for every girl: specific gift ideas for your lady, whoever she may be.

For the Traditionalist

She wears white pearls and black pumps. She loves going out for a Valentine’s Day themed meal on exactly February 14 each year. And, she tends to gift watches and wallets to the men in her life.

She’s a traditionalist, which means she won’t judge you for bringing her red roses. But she’d also love something extra expressive, like the Rebus Charm Set from Chamilia.

Set of three charms that spell out I love you

Rebus Charm Set, $99, Chamilia

This adorable sterling silver set contains a special message, adorned in pink and red Swarovski crystals. She can wear the charms together or separately on a neck chain or bracelet.

For the Purist

She prefers to eat organic and she never, ever goes to bed with her make-up on. On the weekends, she’s volunteering for beach clean-ups or shopping at the farmer’s market. Your girl is a purist, and she appreciates all things that are as close to their natural state as possible. For skin and body care, she’ll love to learn about PUR Attitude.

You may find some of these in other skincare brands, but not in PUR Attitude.

The PUR Attitude Love Your Body gift set includes shampoo, conditioner and a tub of foaming body scrub. It’s indulgent, high-quality stuff. (And if your lady friend isn’t likely to take it the wrong way, you may also check out the Best Sellers Trial Kit of anti-aging products.
