Keep reading to discover more ideas for romantic gifts that'll sweep the woman you love off her feet.

1. More about The Eternity Rose

Valentine's Day is all about red roses, wine, and chocolates. But if you want to take your romance to the next level and avoid cliches, why not give your lady an Eternity Rose?

When you're choosing gifts for her, you want them to be special and memorable. A luxurious preserved rose dipped in real 24-karat gold, silver or platinum will last forever. She'll always remember the occasion and hold the memory dear to her heart.

To make your gift even more unique and thoughtful, choose an Eternity Rose and Vase Set that comes in a display case.

2. A Romantic Dinner in a Fancy Restaurant

You can't go wrong with a romantic dinner in a fancy restaurant. It's a breathtaking experience your woman will love. You can arrange a special love dessert with the restaurant staff when you make the reservations.

If she's more of a homebody, you can surprise her by cooking her favourite meal for a candlelit dinner at home. Compliment this with a box of chocolates, rose petals, quality wine and mellow music, and you're good to go.

3. An Aromatherapy Kit

If your loved one is into well-being, one of the best gifts for her is an aromatherapy or spa kit. You can purchase a pre-made one or make it yourself. A single kit usually contains:

  • Essential oils
  • Scented and floating candles
  • Bath salts
  • Bath bombs
  • Body scrubs
  • Loofahs or natural sponges
  • Towels
  • Flower petals
  • A CD with relaxing music
  • Books
  • Beverages (coffee, tea, wine, hot chocolate)

For a complete experience, prepare a bubble bath for her, light some candles, put on some music and let her indulge.

4. Her Favourite Perfume

Getting your wife or girlfriend her favourite perfume is a safe bet. It's also a romantic move because it shows her you pay attention.

Better yet, get her the full set of body lotion, shower gel and Eau de perfume that comes in a box. This way, you can wrap it in nice paper and watch her gleam with happiness as she opens it.

5. Personalised Jewellery

Personalised pieces of jewellery are thoughtful, unique gifts for her on special occasions. This Valentine's Day, show your love to the woman in your life through an engraved bracelet, ring or pendant. Another option is to get a matching jewellery set and add a special handwritten note.

You can also engrave the date of a special event in your relationship on a locket. An engraved jewellery box for her most worn pieces is another great alternative.

6. A Journal or Planner

Most women love making to-do lists, plan their days and write down everything. Get her a well-made journal or planner with a romantic message from you and a fine writing pen to go with it.

If you're crafty, you can put together a personalised agenda to fit her lifestyle and schedule. You can add stickers, photos of you two, of places you've travelled to, and of her biggest dreams.

7. A Romantic Getaway

This year for Valentine's Day, treat the woman you love to a romantic getaway at a remote location. Choose the mountains or countryside for a serene weekend in a winter wonderland, where you can both cosy up near the fire and drink mulled wine. If you can, book a getaway somewhere warm and enjoy February on a beach in Bali or Cape Town.

Staying in the UK is a great option, as many hotels and B’n’Bs will have special Valentine's Day offers with complimentary romantic dinners, couple's massages, and champagne.

8. Lingerie

If you're not sure what gifts for her to get, consider lingerie. This is a romantic, luxurious and intimate gift she'll be happy to wear.

Choose the type of lingerie based on her personality, her favourite colour and comfort preferences. For example, some women love red lace lingerie, others love the smoothness of silk and satin, and yet others like leather or latex.

Before you choose, think about her body shape and make sure it's something she'll feel confident in.

9. Artisanal Chocolates

Chocolates are a foolproof gift for romantic occasions like Valentine's Day. You can get personalised chocolates in different shapes and flavours and some companies will even make a chocolate bouquet for you.

Go for artisanal or hand-made chocolates in a heart shape for a truly romantic feel. You can also get a big heart-shaped chocolate block, chocolate-covered strawberries, and chocolate roses.

10. A Framed Photo of a Moment Together

There's nothing more romantic than a framed photo of the two of you sharing a moment together. This can be from your honeymoon, your first holiday together, your engagement, or the place you first met or shared a kiss. It can also be an everyday moment you both remember as special.

Print the photo in poster-size and put it in an elegant frame. On the back, write the date of the photo and a little note from you to her. Another option is to make an entire photo album or a love story scrapbook of your most memorable experiences and travels.
