Sometimes choosing gifts for our closest loved ones feels impossible. Whether it is for your wife or brand new girlfriend, here are some ideas for thoughtful and romantic gifts for her that are good for any special event you and she have coming up, from a day at a salon in Boston to an addition to her growing collection of hobbies. Read this list of romantic gift ideas and start brainstorming your own love-filled gift ideas!
Romantic Gift Idea #1
A Memory Jar: Done well, a memory jar can be one of the most heartfelt gifts--not to mention one of the cheapest--and can be great for reassuring her of your enduring love. You can take this in several different ways, from writing down your favorite moments on slips of paper to including ticket stubs or other small ephemera from your shared memories. Include a photo or matchbook from the restaurant you had your first date, shrink down an image of a map and draw a heart on a place of special significance--your first kiss, where you met, where you proposed, etc. You can also use these ideas to make this a “Love Jar” instead, or combine both into a “History of Us” jar and write the end to sentences like “I knew I loved you when…” and “One of my favorite memories of us is..." Not into the jar thing? No problem--putting them in a decorative box, framed collage, scrapbook or memory box has the same effect.
Romantic Gift Idea #2
A Gift or Collectible for Her Hobbies: This one takes a bit of time and requires paying attention, but often results in the best gifts. Does she love baking? Wine? Gardening? Did she complain about not having a new gadget or the latest trendy thing recently? Does something she uses often need replacing? A baking lover might love a new baking gadget or pretty apron. A wine lover might like a wine aerator or a tour of a nearby vineyard. Study her hobbies and habits, and likely you’ll come up with your own, creative ideas.
Romantic Gift Idea #3
Tickets to Something She Loves: If you know her favorite band, see if they are hosting any concerts near you. Is there a theater show she wants to see? Opera tickets? An amusement park? A special film series? A Ballet performance? An art exhibition? An upcoming exhibit at your local zoo or aquarium? Think outside the box on this one. Does your local movie theater have any special events coming up? Is there a summer whale watching trip? Has she been talking about wanting to take a French cooking course?
Romantic Gift Idea #4
A Gift Certificate to a Local Salon for a Spa Treatment of Her Choice: This is likely the easiest gift on this list. You don’t need to know the name of her usual hair stylist or salon, in fact, since not all salons and spas offer a full line of services beyond the usual cut and color services, you’ll want to research and pick a salon in Boston, for example, that offers a full menu of services, so she can pamper herself with any number of treatments, from a scalp massage to a full makeover. If you are looking for a salon in Boston, try searching for a spa that provides a full array of services, including facials, body wraps, or massage therapy, so she has a plethora of choices when she books her appointment. Remember to check with the receptionist or sales clerk when you purchase the gift certificate to clarify if it is for a specific treatment or if she can use it to get the spa treatment of her choice.
