9 Things to Get Your Girlfriend for Valentine’s Day

February 9, 2022

If you don’t know what to get your girlfriend for Valentine’s Day, then here are nine things you should consider. 

1) Shoes

A nice pair of shoes can instantly elevate her mood. It could be heels, flats or even sneakers. If you’re not sure what style she likes, ask some of her friends or check out shoes she’s hinted she likes. At least let her feet look good as she jumps to conclusions. 

2) Your hoodie

If you don’t have a lot of money to spend for Valentine’s Day, your hoodie is a safe gift option. Not only is it cheap, but it’s a sentimental gift she’d absolutely love. This way, you can give her your least favourite hoodie and keep the ones you actually like. 

3) Jewelry

This is a very tricky gift idea because if your girlfriend likes silver and you buy her gold, you might as well have carried knife to stab her in the chest. Necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets. If you don’t want to risk buying the wrong thing, you can pay for her to get a new piercing. She’d love that. 

4) Your bank card and pin 

This is not a gift for the faint at heart, but for those who have money to spend. Let her go wild with your bank card and pin. Just make sure that things like rent and feeding money are removed from the card and you leave her with at least half a million naira to spend.  

5) Perfume

My girls like to smell good, so why not give her a new signature scent or at least restock her current one? If you’re trying to buy her a new scent, better get one similar to the one she already uses. Let her not think that you’re gifting her the same perfume your side chick uses. 

6) Bags 

Those storage containers, also known as bags, are always welcome as Valentine’s Day gifts. Where else will she be able to store all your wrongdoings? 

7) A day of pampering 

Tell her to cancel everything else she’s had planned and just let her get spoilt like fried rice that they cooked three days ago. Pay for her to get her nails and hair done as well as a massage to release the tension of holding in all that wickedness. She deserves. 

8) Pay for her dry cleaning for a month 

If you were doing this for a man, it’ll be because he loves looking sharp with crispy starched and ironed clothes . For your girlfriend, you do it so she doesn’t look like the dress was just picked straight from the washing machine. Help her to help yourself. 

9) A jar with 30 reasons why you love her 

They’re not the only ones that can give gifts like that, or don’t you know where they sell cardboard? Buy a bunch and get to writing. Whenever she’s sad, tell her to take one of the notes.
