10 Romantic Gifts That Your Girlfriend Will Love
Guys! Can’t think what to buy your girlfriend? We’ve got you covered with 10 romantic gifts she’ll love.
Okay, guys. For the purpose of this article, think of us as your own personal shopping assistants. See, we know how hard it is to buy for girls. We understand how frustrating it is for you, as you can’t decide between this or that, before deciding that she won’t like any of them.
And you’ve been stung before. You bought her what you thought was an incredibly romantic gift, only for her to return it in exchange for something else.
“Honey, the thought is all that matters,” she says to you in consolation.
But it’s not enough for you. You want to surprise her with something heartfelt that she’ll adore and cherish forever. So if her birthday is coming up, or you just want to surprise her spontaneously (because she is the love of your life after all, and deserves to be showered randomly with gifts at any time of the year!), let’s take a look at 10 gifts she’ll definitely love.
Scented candles are probably the safest, cost-effective gift you could ever buy her. Unless she has an allergy (make sure to find this out first), no girlfriend on the planet would turn down scented candles as a gift.
Candles are romantic. They set moods. Your girl could prepare the candles around the home to accompany a romantic dinner between the two that hints at the possibility of intimacy later on, or she could keep them for herself as she takes a relaxing bubble bath.
You just can’t lose with this one. Try to pick candles that emit a scent you know she loves, and to really double-down, go for a massage oil candle.
A New Camera
If she fancies herself as an amateur photographer, buy her a new camera. To make it extra romantic, you should take the first photo of yourself to remind her of your love.
A Book Of Love Poetry
Okay, it’s time to get super schmoopy here.
Guys can be a bit fussy when it comes to poetry.
“But poetry is for boring, stuffy intellectuals,” some say.
It isn’t. Love poetry in particular is for everyone. And it melts a girls heart.
Okay, you have to be careful to choose the right collection of love poems. Shakespeare sonnets, as amazing as they are, aren’t for everyone. Our failsafe recommendation is a book called Love Poems by Pablo Neruda, a Colombian poet who knows how girls tick.
You can find some rather beautifully-bound copies on Amazon for less than $20.
But girls are picky when it comes to jewellery, so ask her friends to find out the type she likes.
Her Favourite Magazines
Are magazines romantic? Really?
They can be – especially when guys buy them for us.
Girls just love to spend their mornings off work poking their noses through their favourite magazines. Whether we’re reading about celebrity gossip, learning fashion tricks or discovering new ways to decorate our homes, magazines are a girls best friend (after you, of course).
And when guys buy them us, it’s amazing. Why? Because it’s so unexpected!
Don’t just buy her one, though – get her a subscription.
A Bottle Of Wine
They say that the best way to a man’s heart is through a stomach. Well, the best way to a girls heart is through a bottle of vino!
Wine is always a winner. Red or white, it doesn’t matter (although it would be fab if you could pick out her favourite bottle).
You could pick up a bottle on your way home from work and double it up with chocolates.
Or how about this: Prepare a loving, romantic meal for her and top it off with a bottle of that delicious wine she loved that one time in a restaurant.
If you can remember small things like that, she’ll love you forever. Just picture it: “Honey, I remember you said you liked that wine in that restaurant we went to. So I went and bought you a bottle.”
Seriously, can we date you?
A Framed Photo Of You Two
Nope, you’re not getting out of this one. Not only do you have to buy her a framed photo, but YOU also need to be in it with her!
This one will require you to get a bit creative. You could either use an existing photo of you two (we’re sure there’ll be some good ones on Facebook, and don’t worry if you think you look ‘terrible’), or you could take a new one of the two of you.
Then, take it to an expert picture framer and ask them to do the rest.
This is a super romantic gift that your girlfriend will treasure forever.
As a bonus, you could also frame a photo of one of her pets (yes, even that cat you hate!).
Have guys still not got our fascination with bath bombs? Well, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that all girls love bath bombs. We see them as a bit of a treat that come in handy for those days off work when we just want to soak in the tub for an hour with bubbles, scented candles, magazines and a glass of wine.
We know what you’re thinking: You could really go to town here. Buy her a bath bomb, a bottle of wine, some scented candles and a magazine and you’ll literally be the most romantic boyfriend on the planet!
We can’t cope. You’re too adorable.
Although lingerie is a good gift, it’s not for definite that she’ll like the type you buy her. Make sure you know what she likes to wear before buying.
An “I Love You Card”
Cards are not just for Christmas, birthdays or hospital stays. You can buy romantic “I Love You” cards anytime you want.
And if you want a simple but powerful, cute and utterly romantic way of expressing your love for your girlfriend, an “I Love You” card is just the ticket!
Make sure to buy one with a heart-melting verse inside, but don’t forget to add your own words, too.
Aww. This article is breaking us.
