It’s that time of the year where having one of the best valentine gift ideas is paramount to making your partner happy. Gifting your partner a romantic gift is all about knowing your partner.
If you’ve been married for as long as I have or even more, you probably know your partner well, and surprising them might be a little bit difficult.
But if you just started dating recently, say four months ago, you still have a lot to learn about your partner especially about the right gifts to give them without going too overboard.
Whether your relationship is brand new or is in its golden years, finesse and a lot of thoughts are required. Luckily for you, I’ve put the thought in for you by selecting this array of the best valentine gift ideas for him or her.
I remember my first valentine’s day celebration with my husband. We had dated for close to 8 months before Valentine’s day came over.
I remember starting my Valentine’s day gifts for him project about six weeks beforehand. I bought a “Reason’s I Love You Note Book” and took it secretly with me everywhere.
Whenever I was stuck in traffic, lost for words or simply admiring him, I wrote down a reason or reasons why I loved him. I wrote at least once a day and sometimes even up to six, seven times.
I can remember vividly the expression on his face when he saw the gift. I think he opened the box expecting a box of cliché chocolates or maybe new PES pads. It was quite a shock seeing a notebook titled “Reasons Why I Love You” and even more satisfying and touching for me seeing the single drop of tears that rolled down his cheek.
Up till today, he still tells me that that was the best gift he has ever received. He even has his favorite page framed on his desk!
You don’t always have to give your partner a sweet card or a box of chocolates every valentine’s day. You have to think outside and put some thought and effort into getting your partner that perfect gift.
I have put this list of 50 Best Valentine Gift Ideas because I believe you can do better than a card this year.

6. One Dozen Red Roses
A girl receiving flowers at the crack of dawn or immediately she steps into her office, nothing beats that feeling that you’re special.
Giving her flowers as one of the valentine gift ideas might seem like a cliché or popular move but the key to making it personal and more thoughtful is the time and place of delivery, the note that accompanies it, and the main dish that is to follow the appetizer.
If you want to wow her this valentine’s day, you have to see the flowers as an appetizer that needs a main course and dessert; and not just as the full package.
Accompany the flowers with a handwritten Valentine Love message. Follow it up with the main course and dessert of your choice which can range from dinner at her favorite restaurant, full-body romantic massage by “Yours Truly”, or a private showing of her all-time favorite movie.
You don’t have to go overboard if the budget isn’t there, you can turn your bedroom to her own private cinema with fluffy pillows, popcorn, chocolates, balloons and any other décor of your choice.
7. Handwriting Bracelet
If you’re wanting to go to the personalized route with your valentine gift ideas this year, you can’t go any better than an actual handwriting bracelet.
There’s something extra unique about it just knowing that it was based off of your lover’s handwriting. Wearing the bracelet is like carrying a personalized message from your lover with you everywhere you go; it doesn’t get better than this.
