Picking a Valentine’s Day Gift is an exercise filled with danger. It’s important to pick a gift that is appropriate for the level of the relationship, thoughtful enough to come from the heart and also be something the recipient will appreciate.

Any person who has been in a relationship has a story of a Valentine’s Day gift gone bad. Buying the wrong gift can have consequences for weeks or months and can even end some relationships before they have a chance to bloom.

Valentine’s Day Roses are the perfect idea if you want to create romance. Roses are also a Valentine’s Day tradition. Following up the flowers with something that is more personalized is a good option. Sending flowers other than roses is also a good option, particularly if the recipient has a favorite flower or arrangement. In any case, the decision to send flowers Valentine’s Day is always an incredible choice.

If Valentine’s Day Roses aren’t a good option, there are some other ideas that generally always fit the holiday. A handmade card is a great option, or a small thoughtful stuffed animal. Cute items are almost always a great gift and they don’t have to be expensive. In fact, Valentine’s Day is a holiday where small thoughtful gifts can be as impressive as the expensive ones.

That’s not to say that a more expensive gift wouldn’t be appreciated. More jewelry is sold around Valentine’s Day than at any other time of the year. Buy a big bunch of flowers and insert a set of earrings or a cute bracelet inside the wrapped Valentine’s Day bouquet. Adding one that contains the loved one’s birthstone can also be a hit. Tennis anklets are always popular or a charm bracelet containing charms with meaning to the relationship.

At the end of the day, whether you decide to send flowers Valentine’s Day or opt for a more expensive gift, or both, the most important thing is to pick a gift from the heart that has meaning for both the giver and the recipient.
