Valentine’s Gift Ideas, For Her

So, there’s a week to go. Are you struggling with ideas of what to get her this Valentine’s day? Here’s a few ideas that might spark even better ideas of your own! I’m very grateful for resources like Etsy when it comes to present buying, it means you can get far more personal gifts, that are usually hand made too.

  1. It’s February and it is cold, how about treating her to a beautiful scarf, one that she wouldn’t ordinarily go and buy herself, such as this beauty:Super chunky infinity scarf. Chunky scarf. Infinite scarf. Big yarn scarf. Merino wool
  2. Is she a lover of tea (and probably cake) and in dire need of a beautiful mismatched but complimentary set of 4 tea cups and saucers? Who isn’t?! There are so many gorgeous cup and saucer sets out there, has she mentioned any? Or perhaps anything else kitchen related? Maybe a cake stand?
  3. Is she a baker? How about this awesome customised rolling pin, so that everyone knows who made those gorgeous biscuits?Custom pattern made by rolling pin and cookie cutter
  4. How about some jewellery but something a little different. Etsy is a great place to look but there are some great websites out there that sell stunning jewellery, such as Regal Rose, Noctua (who have a great 3 for 2 offer on), Kate & Bee and The Great Frog London (depending on her likes and your budget). Here are some of my favourite finds:Terrarium + Silver Leaf Resin Ring • Size 7.5 • Geometric Terrarium Ring • Science Specimen Ring • Nature Moss Eco Resin RingGreat for those outdoorsy types is the moss terrarium ring above!frame_ring
  5. Or perhaps jewellery that is a little more personal to the two of you, more symbolic of your relationship, such as this custom initial bracelet:Two lowercase a-z Initials Bracelet, Couple bracelet, Name Bracelet, Boyfriend Girlfriend, Personalize Necklace, Valentines Day
  6. On the subject of personal, Redbubble and Society 6 are great places to find thoughtful gifts. For example, below are two tote bags, one with a photograph of the road to my house in the country where I was born and grew up (I’ve since moved) and one with my favourite photograph that one of my favourite blogger‘s has taken. Both would be enormously thoughtful gifts and I am sure there are places, plants, animals, hobbies, bands, quotes or any other pictures/characters you can think of that she really loves, that are available on a tote bag, cushion cover, t-shirt, hoody, mug, clock, phone case or even just the print itself, out there. Number One by Sebastian OpitzYellow Mushrooms Tote Bag
  7. On the subject of prints, there are endless quirky, funny, inspiring, customisable prints out there, how about framing one for her. Something that really resonates with who she is, such as this one below, a subject I have strong feelings about:Ice Cream Print A4 - kitchen print - ice cream art - ice cream poster - without ice cream quote - darkness and chaos
  8. Does she ride a bike and have a love of cycling? How about this adorable bike planter, so she can take nature with her where ever she goes, even on those inner city bike rides!nm-23.jpg
  9. I know I mentioned tea cups already but mugs are a totally different thing. I LOVE an inspiring quote mug and couldn’t resist adding this to the list. There are loads of different quote mugs out there, perhaps she has a favourite quote or saying…Time to get Stuff Done Mug
  10. And finally, I could never have a gift ideas list for her without some books on it (given I’m a huge book worm and cook book addict). Has she been longing for a cookbook in particular? There must be at least 100 cook books out there on my wish list, so here are a few below that she might enjoy too, if she’s that way inclined:                                                                                                                                                

They don’t have to be cook books though. I think books are fantastic gifts, if she loves books there will be hundreds that she may have mentioned in passing (or been talking about non-stop).

I talked about alternative Valentine’s cards in my gift ideas for men post. Don’t forget, there is always the perfume, bathroom smellies or make up options too. I just wanted to share a few things that were a little different.
