Gifts are typically reserved for very special occasions — birthdays, Christmas — but giving something remarkable to your partner on the most romantic day of the year could stump you. Especially when you want to deliver that WOW factor.

This year we are going to help you pick the most impressive gift that will leave your special someone breathless. Why settle for a typical flower bouquet or a box of chocolate when you can dazzle your boo with the finest jewels and shoes?

Something Personal

Diamonds will always be a girl’s best friend (it is a timeless piece) but on a day that celebrates love, you might want to consider gifting something more intimate and creative. How intimate and creative are we speaking? You can start by doing something simple such as making a card, or generating a scrap book of your favourite moments with the love of your life (trust us, it is a cute idea). Sharpen your arts and crafts skills and get in tune with your inventive side because this might be the Valentine’s Day where you are constructing a gift from scratch.

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then a pair of heels must be her soulmate (alongside you of course). When it comes to gifting a pair of shoes you definitely do not want to go the basic route by purchasing a simple pair of any type of footwear – your Valentine is worth more than that. Remember, you are going for the wow factor this year. After all, what is a better way to say I love you than with a pair of show stopping snake pumps?

Jewellery

You might categorize a piece of jewellery as a typical gift like a bouquet and chocolate, but we like to consider it  traditional. Although some may go for Tiffany’s, Swarovski, or Pandora, you can switch up this tradition by going to a jeweler that your Valentine will not expect. For instance, Alex and Ani has a personal sentiment behind every piece. This line of jewellery interprets ancient wisdom into modern designs – and they have deemed themselves “the original meaning makers”.
