A gift hamper (beauty basket): 

A gift hamper can never go wrong, in fact, women love them! You could get her a basket full of her favorite shampoos, scrubs, moisturizers, you name it, and we promise that she’ll be left swooning over you. When a woman takes care of herself, it’s a reflection of her inner psyche and it actually makes her feel really good about herself. It will show that you pay attention to her needs, that's one thing, and another is that you want to make her feel good about herself at all times.

A day at the spa: 

Every woman craves some alone time to disconnect from the outside world, relax, and get all the stress off her chest. What could possibly do the job better than a luxurious day at the spa!? It's your way of pampering her and showing her your appreciation of her constant support.

A personalized gift: 

Time to exert some effort. Gifts of this kind have “ Big effort’s been made for a special person on a special occasion” written all over them. It is very thoughtful to pick a gift for someone based on a memory you share together, like a photo collage of your pictures as a couple, a necklace that has a special date engraved on it, or a handwritten love letter. Get her something that will linger with her, something that she’ll always remember. 

 

A romantic getaway:

Every once in a while the two of you should take some time off from work and daily routines to go together on a romantic getaway. This is for both of you so, plan your budget earlier on. Remember, you both need to revive the romance and excitement in your relationship every now and then to keep things spiced up.

A romantic dinner: 

It would be a huge plus if you’re already a good cook and you prepare a surprise home cooked dinner for her. Add the Scented candles, flowers, and voila! So much more romantic than any other dinner at the most sophisticated restaurant in town!

Jewelry: 

Jewelry obviously is on top of the list for most purchased gifts for women! However, don't be fooled because it's not that easy. It's all about what type of jewelry you get. Does it convey that you’re paying attention to what she likes and what she doesn’t or did you just purchase a pendant that you hardly took a second look at? Your best option is to design a piece of jewelry just for her.

A bottle of perfume:

No surprise there for sure. Yes, a bottle of perfume is quite a predictable gift, just like a box of chocolates or a flower bouquet! However, perfumes are directly connected to our sense of smell and it's all about choosing the right fragrance. Having such a significant effect on our memories, a bottle of fragrance can surprisingly be the perfect sensual gift that you need. Be selective about it and choose a certain fragrance that reminds her of a special occasion or holds a certain memory of something dear to her. 

Flowers:

A cliché perhaps, but still one of the most classic romantic gestures in the book. Flowers are anything but materialistic and that alone is a beautiful notion. Flowers will never go out of style, the only problem is they die.

Every gift tells a story. It goes without saying that adding a personal touch to that gift is a must. Always pay attention to details and never hold back on showing your love and passion for her!
