Whether you are shopping for Valentine’s Day, a special anniversary, or their birthday, your significant other deserves a gift she’ll love.
But finding the perfect gift can be difficult. You want it to be unique and thoughtful, not something generic or something she already has.
So consider her interests, hobbies, or favorite foods and drinks. Think about the things she likes most.
If you’re still struggling with ideas, don’t worry. Here are seven unique gift ideas, one of which is bound to make your girlfriend feel special:
Custom star map
The company Twinkle In Time offers pictures of the night sky that can be customized by time and location.
For example, you could set the night sky to when and where you and your partner first fell in love, got engaged, or got married and then have it enshrined into a picture that your girlfriend can hang on her wall.
This makes for a sentimental gift that helps commemorate your relationship in a unique way.
Weighted blankets have been around since 1999 when therapists used them to help patients cope with mental and physical trauma. But they’ve recently become more mainstream.
Basically, it’s a heavy blanket that gives you the feeling of being hugged all night long. Think of it like a full-body hug. If your girlfriend struggles to sleep at night, this may be just what she needs!
Most women love jewelry. You could get your girlfriend a necklace, bracelet, ring, or earrings. Just make sure it’s her style and size (check her ring size, for example), and make it thoughtful.
To make this Valentine’s Day extra memorable, you could even get her the ring of he dreams and propose while you’re at it. Extra points if you go with a unique setting or interesting diamond cut.
Custom doughnut message
A custom doughnut message can be a fun and tasty way to show you care.
Get letter-shaped donuts that spell out a sweet message, like “I love you,” “Happy Valentine’s Day,” or “Happy Birthday,” with your girlfriend’s name. You can add number and symbol-shaped doughnuts, too.
Shop around at your local bakeries to see if they offer this. Many even allow you to place your order online and have it delivered.
Custom photo book
A custom photo book is a great gift that will remind your girlfriend of fond memories you have together.
You can gather photos of you and your partner and put them into a photo book or use a custom photo book service.
With many online photo book services, you have to upload your digital photos, and they can take care of the rest by printing and shipping the photo book directly to you.
Tickets to a concert
Sometimes the best gifts are shared experiences. If your girlfriend’s favorite band or artist is playing near you, why not get her (and you) tickets to see them?
This can be a fun way to spend an evening and an experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Lastly, it’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life on occasion. You could book a getaway trip for you and your girlfriend to disconnect and spend some quality alone time together.
Choose the destination yourself or get her an Airbnb gift card so she can decide. Maybe you’ll want to go to a remote location in the woods somewhere or a tropical island you’ve both always wanted to visit.
Whatever you do, make sure to put your phone away and use this as an opportunity to recharge and deepen your relationship.
Wrapping it up
Now that you have some gift ideas, it’s up to you to choose one that will make your significant other feel special (and fits within your budget). So shop around and compare prices online until you find the perfect gift.
