9 Perfect Valentine's Day Gifts for Women

1. Glazed Natural Red Rose that will last an Eternity

If your first instinct is to buy a bouquet of red roses, then you're on the right track. Roses are a universal symbol for love, beauty, perfection, and romance.

But the traditional Valentine's Day bouquet of roses has been done a billion times, and worse, they tend to wilt and die within a week. What kind of message does it send when the symbol of your love is dead a week after you got it?

For a more unique and eternal symbol of your love, you can purchase a perfectly preserved natural red Eternity Rose in a lustrous clear glaze and trimmed with 24K gold.

If you like the spirit of the gift, but want something more majestic and impressive, you can also get a natural preserved rose dipped in 24K gold from The Eternity Rose.

2. Scent Bird Subscription

If the woman in your life loves to smell good, but you never know what scents of perfume to buy her, then why not let her sample multiple fragrances and let her decide?

Scent Bird allows you to sign up for a subscription where a 30-day supply of new designer fragrances will be delivered to your home every month.

They offer over 450 designer and niche scents, and she can choose which one to receive each month.

Best of all, it's only $14.50 per month or $13.50 if you get the yearly subscription, so it'll even save her money on new perfumes in the long run!

3. Trunk Club Subscription

But not all women are into perfumes.

What if she's more of a clothes-lover, but can't decide on one cohesive style for herself? It's nearly impossible for you to pick out an outfit for her because you never know if she'll really like it.

So what if you could get her a personal stylist guaranteed to help her find the style she's always wanted?

Well, now you can! Trunk Club has a team of expert stylists that will work with the fashionista woman in your life to build a wardrobe that she'll love.

From classic to contemporary. From workout to workplace.

The Trunk Club stylists are available whenever they're needed to help her find the perfect outfit!

4. "What I Love About You" A-to-Z Cards

Not everyone can afford a personal stylist or a year of designer fragrances for Valentine's Day, and for some women, that's just not their thing.

But don't underestimate the power of gifts for women that you make yourself. They may not have a high price tag, but there's a lot more personality and meaning behind a love letter than a store-bought diamond ring.

Try making her a mini-booklet of "What I Love About You" cards, each one starting with a different letter of the alphabet. These can be treasured personal memories, little quirks about her, or just silly in-jokes that you share together.

5. "Open When" Letters

If it's not already obvious, women love to receive love letters. It doesn't matter what you write in them, really.

What will really impress her about a letter is that you took the time to sit down and think about her and express your feelings even though she wasn't around.

But a single letter can be written in an hour, so it may not feel like you did enough. You also might have a million things you want to say, but you don't want to hand her an entire novel of your thoughts.

So write her a dozen letters for different occasions with "Open When..." letters.

In the upper left-hand corner of each envelope, write the words, "Open When..." Then write an occasion on each one such as, "you miss me," or "you're bored," or "you want to smile at a memory."

It may seem like a lot of work, but you'll be surprised how easily the words flow out once you have an occasion for each letter. And really, isn't she worth the effort?

6. Personal Espresso Makers

Almost all women enjoy love letters, but if you want to give her something more practical that she'll love, nothing gets people going more than a strong cup of coffee.

So what better way to impress her than with her own espresso machine?

If your coffee girl knows all the Starbuck's baristas by name, then this will be the perfect gift to satisfy her caffeine craving and save her money while you're at it!

7. Luxury Herbal Slippers

Maybe your wife or significant other loves foot massages, or constantly comes home from work stressed out.

If that's the case, then she might be in need of some luxury herbal slippers. These plush fleece slippers are stuffed with flax seed, grains, and fragrant herbs that have a therapeutic scent sure to relax her after a stressful day.

Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to activate the herbs or put them in the freezer to relieve achy feet.

It won't completely get you off the hook for foot rubs, but it will help her relax after a hard day on her feet!

8. Scrapbook of Us

If you're not good at writing letters, then you might be better off creating a scrapbook of your relationship.

Do you still have the movie ticket stub from your first date? That's perfect for page 1!

Or maybe you have a few dozen pictures of the two of you throughout the years. If not, you can always check Facebook for more!

A scrapbook is meaningful because it's not just a trip down memory lane, it's a personal museum of every sentimental keepsake and memory you've kept throughout the years.

9. Sexy Truth or Dare

Sweet, romantic gifts are always great for Valentine's Day, but what if you want something a little spicier?

There are different versions of this game available for purchase online, or you can make your own set of cards with revealing "truth" questions, and racy "dare" questions.

Beware that some store-bought versions may push your boundaries a little bit, but you might be surprised to find out there's a lot of fun to be had outside of your comfort zone!

Conclusion

One of the reasons it might seem like buying gifts for women is difficult, is because every woman is unique in her own style, interests, and personality. What might be the perfect gift for some would be a terrible gift for others.

The key is to know the woman in your life and to get something that fits her unique personality.

With our list, you're sure to find that special gift to impress her, no matter what her personality!

Don't wait! Get started on one of these gifts today!
