The secrets to a perfect Valentine's Day gift for her
Buying a Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriend can be easier than you think. If you don't have something in mind, you just need to do a little bit of careful research - most of which can be done over social media. And if all else fails, most girls love red roses.
Clothing and jewellery
Many people say that it is impossible to pick clothes and jewellery that their girl actually likes. In reality it's not that hard. Think of the things she normally wears and if you can remember, scroll through her Instagram or facebook photos. Does she usually like to wear black? Does she prefer silver jewellery or gold? Once you've got an idea of things she normally wears, it's just a matter of finding something similar.
Perfumes are extremely hard to pick. People can be fussy about smells. If you're dead-set on buying her a perfume, maybe have a look at what she's currently using and buy her the same. Alternatively, you can pick a very subtle and non-offensive scent like Chloe Eau De Toilette, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue or Marc Jacobs Daisy.
Buying lingerie can be a bit difficult so I don't recommend it unless you already know her size or you can take a sneak peek at a bra she already owns. The size will be written on the tag at the back where the clips are. Once you know the size, it's just a matter of finding the same one when you're shopping. It's a good idea to stick to the same brand too. If your girl like Pleasure State bras, then stick to those.
Beware of buying bralettes (triangle style bras without a wire) because these can be hard to wear if she has bigger boobs. Stick to something with a bit more support if she is a little more like Beyonce rather than like Taylor Swift.
Again, buying her beauty products is easier than you think. Pull up one of her selfies and take a look at the makeup she's wearing. Does she have a lot of black around her eyes? Then she'll love a black eyeliner or black eyeshadow. Does she have darker skin? Try getting her a beautiful bronzer. If you see her wearing lots of lipsticks then get one of those in a trend colour like nude. And if you're still totally confused then either take a photo of her into Sephora or David Jones and ask for help or leave us a comment.
There are at least a few florists in every city of the country so this is one of the simplest and easiest gifts for everyone. If you're stuck for what to get, just get roses. The quintessential Valentine's Day flower.
If your girlfriend simply adores chocolate then this is a good option for you. There are some beautifully exuberant boxes of high-grade, quality chocolates available out there.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
