When to buy gifts for Valentine’s Day

There are two ways you could interpret the question: when to buy gifts for Valentine’s Day? Could it be, at what point in your relationship should you give each other Valentines gifts, or more literally, when is a good time to get your gift shopping done? To make things easy, let’s consider both.

In reference to the former, when is a good time in your relationship to start buying Valentine’s Day gifts? Really it’s completely up to you, every relationship is different and every couple is different. We have a whole guide on navigating Valentine’s Day in a new relationship, which might be helpful if you’re still in the very early days. The main conclusion we drew is that it’s time to give gifts when it feels right to you. Talk to your partner and if it feels like an elaborate Valentine’s display would be coming on too strong for your first Valentine’s Day together, perhaps settle for a simple Valentine’s Day card for her instead.

At the other end of the relationship spectrum, should you buy Valentine’s gifts if you have been together for years and years? Many couples get out of the habit of really celebrating Valentine’s Day when they are in a long term relationship so again, it’s really up to you. But surprising your partner with an unexpected gift, especially a personalised one, is a wonderful way to remind them how much they are loved on Valentine’s Day.

And to answer the second interpretation of the question “when to buy gifts for Valentine’s Day”, it’s never too early to start thinking ahead. It’s also best not to leave your gift buying to the night before – Valentine’s flowers often sell out quickly and you don’t want to be left with supermarket cast offs. That being said, lots of online retailers (including us at Create Gift Love!) can provide thoughtful last minute Valentine’s Day gifts for her.

To be on the safe side, most Valentine’s Day shopping and preparations begin at the start of February.

So what are the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts for her? Roses – and other Valentines flowers – are the obvious choice. Thousands of bouquets are bought in the UK each year, chosen because of the associated tradition and the romantic symbolism flowers represent. Other popular Valentine’s Day gifts for her include the classic chocolates, jewellery, perfume and lingerie. But if you’re looking for Valentine’s Day gifts for her with an edge, consider something more thoughtful to make an impact.

How to make Valentine’s Day special with customised gifts

Personalised gifts, such as the handmade keepsakes we make at Create Gift Love, are one way to make Valentine’s Day super special. Whether you’re buying for your girlfriend, wife or new partner, she will love the thoughtful sentiment. It’s an easy way to let her know she is valued.

With lots of options to choose from and plenty of personalised examples, you can show her how important she is to you without having to go completely overboard with effort. Here are five of our top personalised, easy Valentine’s Day gifts for her.
