A classic Valentine’s Day gift guide for her

Updated on February 10 2016

With Valentine’s Day a soon approaching, it’s time to let your inner romantic out and indulge in all those soppy, sentimental things we usually try to keep at bay for most of the year. Sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics and revive those typical, traditional gifts that we sometimes forget about in our attempts to be different — we’re thinking cuddly stuffed toys, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, sexy lingerie etc.

For the gentlemen looking to get something sweet for their sweets, we’ve put together a super feminine gift guide that is bound to capture any girl’s heart.

Heart-shaped chocolate 

It might seem a little cheesy but a heart-shaped box of chocolate will definitely make her smile. Make it a quality gift with Godiva’s Valentine’s Day Romantic Chocolate Heart, with decadent pieces of chocolate packed in a sleek satin finish and elegant heart-shaped box.

Seductive scents

Perfume is a traditional and literally sweet-smelling gift that will remind her of you every time she spritzes it on. Try the new Gucci Guilty which adds romantic notes of wild strawberry to its signature floral scent of lilac. The musk base is designed to emulate the sultriness of bare skin, isn’t that sexy?

Watches (unlike clocks) symbolise eternity and presenting one of these to her on Valentine’s Day shows your commitment and faith in the relationship. The Daytime White Heart from Swarovski comes in a beautiful, feminine rose-gold coating with white leather strap and 48 clear crystals on the bezel, making for an elegant watch that’s perfect to wear on any occasion.
