Personalise it

There’s nothing nicer than a personalised gift; it speaks volumes on effort and how much you actually know her. Try making a DIY hamper with all her favourite brands and foods, a photobook with all your best memories or even a piece of jewellery… from scratch.

Handmade tokens

Small handmade items are quick and easy to make, but what makes them special is their sentiment. Think thoughtful love coupons and adorable cards or even a home-cooked meal to make her swoon.

Surprise adventure

A fancy dinner with wine is standard. Don’t be stereotypical. Go above and beyond with something different. Try a staycation, day trip or tickets to a farther destination.

Change up the traditional roses

Roses moses. It’s not the roses part that gets the girl all doll-eyes, it’s the flowers. So think out of the box and shake things up in the flower department this year.
