The secrets to a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for her

Buying a Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriend can be easier than you think. If you don’t have something in mind, you just need to do a little bit of careful research — most of which can be done over social media. And if all else fails, most girls love red roses.

Clothing and jewelry

Many people say that it is impossible to pick clothes and jewelry that their girl actually likes — in reality, it’s not that hard. Think of the things she normally wears and if you can’t remember, scroll through her Instagram or Facebook photos. Does she usually like to wear black? Does she prefer silver jewelry or gold?

Once you’ve got an idea of things she normally wears, it’s just a matter of finding something similar.

Perfume

Perfumes are extremely hard to pick. People can be fussy about smells. If you’re dead-set on buying her a perfume, maybe have a look at what she’s currently using and buy her the same. Alternatively, you can pick a very subtle and non-offensive scent like Chloe Eau De Toilette, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue or Marc Jacobs Daisy.

Lingerie

Buying lingerie can be a bit difficult, so it’s not a top recommendation unless you already know her size or you can take a sneak peek at a bra she already owns. The size will be written on the tag at the back where the clips are. Once you know her fit, it’s just a matter of finding the same size when you’re shopping. It’s a good idea to stick to the same brand too. If your girl like Victoria’s Secret bras, then stick to those.

Beware of buying bralettes (triangle style bras without a wire) because these can be hard to wear if she has bigger boobs. Stick to something with a bit more support if she is a little more like Beyonce rather than like Taylor Swift.

Beauty products

Again, buying her beauty products is easier than you think. Pull up one of her selfies and take a look at the makeup she’s wearing. Does she have a lot of black around her eyes? Then she’ll love a black eyeliner or black eyeshadow. Does she have darker skin? Try getting her a beautiful bronzer. If you see her wearing lots of lipsticks then get one of those in a trendy color like nude. And if you’re still totally confused, then take a photo of her into Sephora or Ulta and ask for help or leave us a comment.

Flowers

There are at least a few florists in every city of the country so this is one of the simplest and easiest gifts for everyone. If you’re stuck for what to get, just get roses. The quintessential Valentine’s Day flower.

Chocolate

If your girlfriend simply adores chocolate then this is a good option for you. There are some beautifully exuberant boxes of high-grade, quality chocolates available out there.
