She said “I don’t really need anything for Valentine’s Day,” but you know better. You don’t want to be the guy that disappoints her when everyone else has said, “I love you,” and you’re the only one that hasn’t. Her friends and family will show her love with cards, flowers, and sweet treats… So how do you go above and beyond? How do you stand out from all of the other people who love her? Give her what no one else will on that day – jewelry!
Think that’s too materialistic? “She’s not really a jewelry person.” Jewelry isn’t just about the sparkle (though it’s definitely nice!) but about representing your relationship with something you picked out just for her. Trust us, if you do a good job in picking out the gift, she WILL wear it.
Here are the best jewelry ideas based on how serious your relationship is:
1. The ultimate romantic surprise – An engagement ring!
You’re ready to COMMIT! Think getting engaged on Valentine’s Day is cheesy? According to a Facebook study, Valentine’s Day is the third most popular day of the year to get engaged (after Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), so you wouldn’t be the only one – and it sure beats getting a box of candy hearts. If your lady is suspicious that something is about to happen, don’t be afraid to pop the question a little early, say the day or Saturday before February 14th. That way you can savor the moment, then tell everyone your big news on Valentine’s Day!
2. You’re in love, but not ready to commit to the big “M” – Get something personal.
Getting a piece of jewelry that has personal meaning proves how you have “studied” her and how special she is to you. You can choose a necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings that have a personal note or her name engraved, the birthstone for the month you met, or a certain number of gemstones to represent the time you have been together. (Like sapphire to represent your first date in September or 3 stones for 3 years.) Getting creative adds more emotional meaning and makes the moment you give the gift to her much more memorable.
3. Still feeling things out in your relationship? – Get her something simple.
You two aren’t that serious yet, but you still want to impress her beyond the usual dinner date? Get her something simple she can wear every day. Every-day jewelry like hoop earrings or a delicate chain aren’t as big of a commitment and gives her a chance to feel special without jumping to conclusions. She gets to think of you everytime she wears your gift, and you look like the most romantic guy she’s ever dated!
