Mmmm, where to begin? When researching Valentine’s day gifts for her, well, I expect you think it’s just easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, don’t you? But if you really want to avoid any danger of Valentine’s day going sour on you, you need to think again.


Box of chocs? Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.


Red roses? ‘Great’, you might say. ‘Roses are red, violets are blue, the honey’s sweet and so are you.’

Fair enough, can’t go wrong with flowers. The thing is, they are very expensive, quite frankly a bit of a cliché and don’t last. And you don’t want your Valentine’s day evening entertainment to wilt on you, do you?


Ah, now, champagne? That’ll put some sparkle into the relationship!

Can’t go wrong with a bottle of fizz! But there’s fizz and then again, there’s flat fizz. Could be a disaster unless you carry it around with you and make a special effort to stop at a posh vintner on the way home to get something decent. Don’t risk your evening going off prematurely like a damp squib.


Throw money at it! Buy lots of presents! Pile it on! Nope. Women are tricky and fickle, that won’t cut it either.

So, what is the man about town buying when it comes to looking at Valentine’s day gifts for her?

Top of the list has to be adhering to the old saying, ‘the smaller the package, the better the present’. Yep, you got it, jewellery. That always hits the mark, the simpler and classier the better.

Next up the scale will be dinner, champagne, chocolates and roses – expensive, dark, perfumed, discreet. With a nice note, of course. This is to be supplemented by the ultimate Valentine’s day gift for her. A night away in a swanky apartment, with all mod cons laid on. From chandeliers, silver finishings, Italian marble, sumptuous duck down duvets and linen and touch-of-a-button ambient lighting.

Now you’re talking.

Now you’re getting there.

Yep, that hits the spot, all right!
