How to Give Unique Valentine's Day Gifts That Are Meaningful


The key to giving a meaningful gift for Valentine's Day is to give your partner something personal, rather than the old standbys you would give to anyone. It truly is the thought that counts, so make sure you do a lot of thinking.

  • Start thinking about what you want to give your sweetheart at least a month in advance. Meaningful gifts require forethought and preparation. If you leave it until the last minute, you will be stuck with whatever lame gift you can find.

  • Consider what values or things your lover cherishes. Consider if she loves looking at memorabilia of your relationship, like old pictures and ticket stubs, if he is an avid traveler, or if she would enjoy being pampered.

  • Make a list of ideas based on your observations in Step 2. For the memorabilia lover, think about putting together a scrapbook for her, or sending it out to be professionally done. For the traveler, plan a surprise weekend getaway.

  • Think big and elaborate and unique. Rather than just getting your wife a piece of jewelry, work with a jeweler to custom design a piece. Incorporate sentimental elements, like your children's birthstones or an engraved quote from your wedding ceremony.

  • Fulfill a fantasy. Cook his dream meal and serve it in nothing but an apron. Make up a basket of erotic toys for her, if she has stated a desire to have some.

  • Stay within your budget. A homemade gift that shows a lot of thought and effort, such as a CD of songs that you have enjoyed as a couple, is just as meaningful as something more expensive.

  • Present your gift in an interesting way. Write a love letter and hide parts of it, scavenger hunt style, around the house, with the gift at the last location. Express your feelings. Tell your sweetheart with your words and your actions "I did all this because I love you so much."

Tips & Warnings

  • You can never go too over the top with emotion on Valentine's Day.
  • Express your feelings to your sweetheart all year long, not just on Valentine's Day.
