Best Valentine gift for girlfriend:
Valentine’s day gift ideas for her must display more affection and love than anything else. We, women may not like the silent treatment that much and we definitely need something which speaks loudly and highlights our love. So a simple Hallmark card or a box of chocolates is no more the way to our heart. We do need some effort and lot of love put in by our beloved for just buying something may not be ideal at least on this day for love.

For the card which comes in through post or mail is not what enchants us, for majority of us it does not. So some creative valentine gifts for her include:

If it is a card then let it be a DIY or something which is just more than a store brought hallmark pick. Get photo prints on card or photo magnets or make a card yourself using art supplies and decorate it in a way that it looks unique and special. For a what woman want is not just a simple purchased item but something where you have put your heart and mind too. Write beautiful lines or poem about your beloved in the card and mention some sweet memories form the time you met or had your first date or more

All women just love to be pampered, may not be true for all days, but at least on those few special days when showering your immense love is the right thing to do.

Talk of the preparation and I am immersed into the special tea he would prepare for me, which truly stays the most memorable of our times together. A bed tea with her favorite breakfast can be a great way to begin this special day on a highly romantic note.
