Special Valentine’s gifts for her that won’t kill the romance

A first edition of her favourite book
Ereaders and paperbacks have taken the true feeling out of reading. Gone are the days of beautifully decorated hard back books with thick leather covers. Only to replaced by something electronic or something so flimsy it only stands up to one reading before falling apart. Not only did these classic books make beautiful reading but they also made good ornaments. If you know your sweetheart has a favourite book that’s been read over and over again, then get her a first edition or at the very least an old edition. Gift wrap it and give it to her with a card and a single red rose. She’s sure to feel proud.

Melt her heart with a pet

Make sure she’ll be up for it and has the time to dedicate to its care. But providing all this is in order a pet will be the cutest Valentine’s gift ever.

We bet she loves her shoes
On the whole women are known for loving their shoe collection, but each has her own preference with regards colour, style and heel height, so you’d better be extra careful. Take a look inside her secret shoe closet and you’ll get a good idea of the direction to take. Alternatively take her out shopping a few weeks before the big day and give her the opportunity to try on a few. But of course you’ll be telling her it’s just for the fun of it. However, when she finds a pair she likes you’ll spot the signs and be able to go back later and buy them for her special Valentine gift.

Enjoy a day at the spa together
If you’re the kind of couple that loves to spend time together but rarely get the chance then a day of relaxation and healing treatments will be the perfect way to spend your special day. Remember to leave your phone or laptop at home though, because today is for the two of you alone, with no interruptions.

A gift basket of beauty products
Think about the lady in your life and whether she loves her beauty products, because this can be a great Valentine’s gift for her. They are something that she uses all the time, and will always need replacing. A woman who loves to wear make-up will be thrilled with the gift of some more. Eye-liner, mascara, eye-shadow, lipstick, foundation and much much more are waiting for you at your local beauty counter, so pop on down and ask for some friendly advice.

Now you should be armed with all the ideas and suggestions needed to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember for you and your special other half.
