Finding the perfect gift is difficult, but this Valentine's, there's a deadline. Your girlfriend is counting down to the 14th of February, and with every passing day, the pressure increases. Plus, your girlfriend doesn't trust you to buy her clothes or jewellery, vouchers for specialty stores aren't personal enough, and maybe you've just started dating, so an engagement ring is really premature. Stop freaking out; we're here to help. Here's a list of gifts she's guaranteed to love.
The Ava DuVernay Girlfriend
Since dating her, your entire life just looks better. She’s got a great eye and has rearranged your room to “let the light in”, whatever that means. Every single photograph she takes is carefully-curated, looking like a still from a Wes Anderson film, and has a deep caption. You might not be as artsy as she is, but that doesn’t mean you can’t impress this Valentine's. Here are some ideas.
The perfect gift for the insomniac! This kit comes with multiple sleep-aids that are guaranteed to leave her feeling fresh-faced and well-rested.
She’s an amazing cook. One time, you had to compare her cooking to your mother’s, and your mother is still angry about your decision. Her ideal date night is going to a new restaurant, and then replicating the recipes at home. Since she came into your life, you’ve gained 7kg, and your pants are now uncomfortably tight around the waist… but her weekly mutton curry is too good to pass up.
Here’s a book she hasn’t read! It’s a night-light – shaped like a book. Perfect for romantic Netflix-and-chill evenings, or to write poetry by, it’s a gift she’ll love.
You’ve never been this healthy in your life, and it’s all thanks to her. She has you going to the gym and eating better – you’ve finally lost that nasi lemak belly. She beats all your records, but you don’t even think of complaining, especially since she looks so cute in those little gym shorts. We’ve even got some great gift ideas for your favourite gym bunny.
Not only is a Chemex coffee maker aesthetically-pleasing, it’ll also help her cut down on her Starbucks bills. She’ll be able to start her day Starbucks-free, and still have an amazing cup of coffee.
You still don’t know why she’s going out with you. The first time your friends met her, they thought you were playing a prank on them. Not only is she stunning, she also has her life together – and is working on sorting out yours, too. You’re convinced that an engagement ring is the perfect gift for this Valentine's, but in the meantime, here are some slightly less-expensive gifts.
If a boring old FitBit isn’t her thing, this offers a more stylish option. Worn as a bracelet or necklace, it still gets the job done. Plus, it's more "classy jewelry", and less "Babe, you need to lose weight".
Because of her, you know the difference between primer and foundation. When you go on holiday together, her makeup bag is bigger than your entire suitcase. Even if she takes two hours to get ready, she’s the most beautiful girl you’ve ever dated, and having someone help you cover up some of your huge pimples is a real confidence boost. She’ll love these gifts.
