Is your anniversary coming up? Is her birthday around the corner? Don’t panic, if you’re anything like me, then you’ve probably found yourself in this pickle before. So stop frantically running from store to store or scouring retail websites for hours on end. I’ve got you covered, whether she’s all about her fitness, is a budding photographer, or maybe just likes to kick back and throw down on some Fortnite. Here are a few suggestions in case you’re fresh out of ideas.
Unique And Romantic Gift Ideas For Your Girlfriend
1. A Treasure Chest
Gifts don’t always have to be expensive or flashy, and if DIY projects are your thing then consider giving her a hand-made treasure chest. You can certainly trek out into the forest to chop down a tree and really give it that ‘from scratch’ quality, but if you’re not a lumberjack then you could also find some useful items from a craft or hobby store. Then fill it with your fondest photos together, some handwritten notes are also a nice touch. If she’s got a sweet tooth then throw in some of her favorite sweets, and she’ll definitely appreciate a personalized coupon book.
2. An Essential Oil Diffuser
Ditch the scented candles (they’re boring) and the incense (and all that smoke and ash in her room) and get her a diffuser with an assortment of essential oils. They make her place smell great and it’s easy to use. She can easily mix and match different oils for that perfect scent, and best of all, it just needs a bit of water to work.
3. A Smartwatch
If your girlfriend is a techie with an eye for fashion then why not get her a smartwatch? Michael Kors, Kate Spade, and Apple offer fresh smartwatch designs with interchangeable bands. This gift will go the distance because it is versatile and will look great on her whether it’s a romantic date night with you or an afternoon brunch with her girls. This one is sure to score you some brownie points and earn you a free pass the next time you stay out late with the guys.
4. An Engraved Necklace
She is the gentle to your rugged, and having jewelry engraved with something that is meaningful to you both is a simple and heartfelt way to show her how much she means to you. Whether on a ring, key or lock pendant on a bracelet or necklace, this will immortalize your feelings. You can have both of your initials or the date of your anniversary engraved on it, but don’t limit yourself with these because it can be anything as long as it’s meaningful for both of you.
5. A Year’s Subscription to a Wine Box Club
They say a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. So make sure your girl never goes a day without sunshine with this wine box subscription from Hello Fresh. This wine club will ship out as much as six bottles of different brands every month. They’ll also include suggestions like meal pairings so she gets to enjoy the right wine with the right food.
6. Tortoiseshell Sunglasses
Every girl needs a pair of sunnies and these tortoiseshell shades offer a classic look that looks great on many. If her style is a little more vintage, think Audrey Hepburn, then these are perfect. But if vintage isn’t really her style then take a look at what she already wears for cues on what styles she likes.
7. A Makeup Palette
The confused feeling you get when you look at your girlfriend’s makeup drawer is probably the same as when she looks in your tool chest. Choosing to buy her makeup is risky so take some notes of the brands she uses and you’ll be able to surprise her with a sampler of the makeup she loves and she’ll appreciate the attention to detail.
8. Handmade Local Jewelry
Jewelry is always nice, but jewelry from a local crafter or seller offers a nice personalized and thoughtful touch. You can tell her who made it or where they’re from. Ladies love a good background story, and the extra attention to detail will show her you’re a caring and thoughtful guy. A local weekend market usually has a jewelry stand, if not, Etsy is a great handmade alternative!
Tip: If you’re out shopping, look at which ones she tries on or catches her eye. Then, go back later and buy it without her noticing! She’ll be thrilled that you remembered.
If your lady is all about her fitness and getting her gains then help her along her journey with a Fitbit. It’s great for tracking steps, sleep patterns, calories burned during those killer gym sessions and are a great companion on her path to a better her.
10. Cast Iron Cookware
Some people say the home is where the heart is, but any foodie will counter that the kitchen is where the real magic happens. Cast iron cookware is a good gift idea for anyone who finds their happiness in their kitchen. This is great for the girlfriend who is all about her meal-prep or just likes to cook at home in general.
11. A Bag
A bag is one of those run-of-the-mill surprise gifts that won’t turn out well if you don’t do your research. When thinking about what kind of bag to give, look at your girlfriend’s lifestyle, the clothes she wears, and of course, what kinds of bags she is already rocking so you can give her something she’ll actually use. Unless you really have your girl’s style down pat, it’s still hit or miss, so be sure to ask for a gift receipt!
12. Night Wear
Every girl loves to slip into something that makes her feel cozy, or sexy, before going to bed. Give her the gift of dreamy and soft satin or silk pajamas which is something you both will enjoy. You should make your picks based on what you already know about her style and preferences.
13. A Pampering Session at Her Favorite Spa
Who doesn’t love pampering? Sometimes, the best gift you can give your girl is the gift of “Me Time.” Book her a massage session at her favorite spa, and she’ll come back relaxed and unwound.
14. A Carry-On Suitcase
A good, reliable suitcase will remind her of your willingness to carry her burdens for her across the world. Corny sentiments aside, it’s a sensible gift to buy for her if she is a jet-setting professional or just likes to get out of town for some rest and relaxation.
15. Instax Camera
Is your girlfriend a budding, amateur photographer? If she digs retro or vintage cameras then an Instax camera may just be just what she is looking for.
16. Facial Care Kit
Your girlfriend probably has a nightly skincare routine. Help her out with her self-care habit by buying her a line of her favorite facial care products, which can include lotions, eye gels, eye pens, and facial washes. You can also choose a nice bag or organizer to keep her products tidy.
17. A Gaming Console
If your girlfriend’s a gamer, buying her this gift is like buying one for yourself too. You can’t go wrong with a Nintendo Switch, a PlayStation, or an Xbox. This gift will be perfect for those lazy days when you just want to stay in – make it a game night!
