Determine your girlfriend's expectations for a gift, especially if this is your first Valentine's Day together. If she's the kind of person who likes the works (Champagne, dinner, flowers and a gift), knowing this ahead of time will pre-empt disappointment on her part and embarrassment on yours if your gift wasn't quite up to par.
Plan a special evening to celebrate your love so that the gift itself doesn't become the sole display of your affection.

Wrap your present in a box that won't give your gift away or lead to disappointment if, say, you've been dating for several years now and still aren't ready to step up to the plate. In other words, if it's not a diamond, don't dare put your gift in a little square box.
Offer your present before or after dinner, making sure to tell her you love her while she's opening it.
