Women want and need to know that they are loved, cherished and above all else appreciated. The following thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift ideas should set you on the right track to finding a gift she will know without a doubt was carefully chosen just for her.

Incredibly Thoughtful Gift Ideas For Her

Adopt a Pet – Provided the two of you are in a stable, long term relationship and you have both the room and the lifestyle to offer an animal a permanent home, adopting a dog or cat from the local animal shelter will be a humanitarian gift and also will provide her with company when you are not home. It is best if the topic of adopting a pet has been discussed prior to making this decision, and as the choice of pet has to be one that you both can live with a trip to the local animal shelter may be in order. You can arrange feed bowls, bedding and the like beforehand if you know the size of animal and type you are planning to adopt.

Romantic Spa Getaway Weekend – Being pampered from head to toe is not only relaxing but is one sure way of letting your special lady know that her health and well-being are of the utmost importance to you. Choose a location that is likely to be tranquil and relaxing but also offers activities should you both feel like going dancing or to a show at night.

Love letter for Valentine's Day
Write a Letter or Poem – When you write a letter or poem it is about as personal as a Valentine gift can get. Tell her in your own words everything she means to you. Declare your love and appreciation for everything about her. Let her know all the little things that mean so much to you, and then end the letter with a promise to continue to love her until the end of time. Write it on beautiful paper in case she decides she wants to frame it or put it into a scrapbook or photo album.

Create a Gift Basket – While you could easily go out and buy a readymade gift basket full of gourmet goodies and wines starting from scratch and choosing all the things you know for sure she will enjoy will show her that you truly were thinking of her and her enjoying all the great things the basket holds. It may take some effort to find all the things she likes but will be so worth it when you see how happy she is to receive your Valentine’s Day gift basket. If she is generous of spirit there is a good chance that she will share many of her goodies with you so it is a win/win situation for both of you.

Art Work – If your special lady likes a particular style of art work or a particular artist, buy her a piece to display in her home and enjoy. Typically art appreciates with age so it is likely to be not only a special gift for a special lady but also one that will be a good investment. It doesn’t have to be a large piece. A pretty Lladro figurine is something that many women would love to own. Alternatively you could buy her a painting, a sculpture, or even a quilt to hang on the wall if she likes that sort of thing Just bear in mind the things she likes to surround herself with.

unique glazed rose
A Tree, Rose Bush or Single Rose – If she owns her own home or you own a home together consider buying a tree that she can plant and watch grow over the following years. A rose bush will be just as good a Valentine gift if you don’t have anywhere to plant a tree. If you live together in apartment, then a glazed rose is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift you can give. When considering your options it is important to bear in mind how big the tree will grow and how far the root system will spread. If you live in a favorable climate you might like to consider an apple tree or other fruit tree so that she can enjoy its harvest year after year once it matures.

Have Her Car Thoroughly Detailed – Many busy women simply do not have the time to get their car detailed. They may find a few minutes once a week to quickly run it through the car wash but never have the time to get it detailed inside and out. A thorough detail of her car should make it smell like brand new again, and look as shiny and new as it possibly can. If she spends any significant amount of time in her car this is a gift that will keep on giving for weeks to come.
