Personalized Valentine Gifts
Of course, your partner could not be happier than when presented with a personalized gift that shows exactly how much you care about the bond shared between you.
This often matters far more than the price you have paid for the gift in question. A little careful thought on your part will have to go into the choosing of the gift but by thinking about the hobbies and the interests of the recipient you are sure to have lots of ideas to help you pick the best possible Valentine´s Day gift.
If food and drink is an appropriate theme, you may like to think about giving your loved one a German Valentine Gift Basket. These contain all manner of gastronomic delights such as cakes, chocolates and cookies and you can also add a selection of tasty German wines if you wish.
Photograph Album with some love notes
It could be that you are searching for a present that your partner can keep forever. If so, why not opt for a photograph album and have some personal love notes in German showing him or her exactly how you feel about them inscribed on the pages of the album?
If German isn't one of your strongest languages all you have to do is post what you want to say here and we will translate it perfectly on your behalf.
romantic german painting
If German art is one of your sweetheart's pleasures, a romantic painting with a brief poem written beneath it is a great idea for a gift. Finish the package off by adding a German greetings card declaring how much care.
A personalized CD of favorite songs, or i tunes certificates are both perfect choices for your loved one if they simply adore listening to German music.
When you have browsed through the above suggestions, if you still haven't found the right gift, then maybe it would be better to go for a general kind of present. Here are some classics for you to choose from.
General Valentine Gift Ideas for Men
As far as men are concerned you can't really go wrong with accessories, books, clothes, German gourmet food and iPods. It's worth knowing that the majority of men just love to own a selection of Nivea deodorants or shaving lotions from Hugo Boss.
General Valentine Gift Ideas for Women
Valentine gift ideas with women in mind are numerous. Most of them love chocs or candies, fluffy toys and Steiff Teddy bears, candles or superb German perfumes from Hugo Boss, Jil Sander or Toni Gard.
In addition to one of these gifts you could pamper her a little with a selection of Litamin bath and shower products or Nivea lotion. She'll love that extra little treat!
Of course, it goes without saying that diamonds are a girl's best friend so naturally they are the ultimate in gift giving. However, Swarovski offer a stylish crystal alternative of jewelry items to suit all ages and lifestyles and the prices are so reasonable.
You can choose from their stunning collection of bracelets, necklaces and rings all studded with magnificently sparkling gems or stones - a heart-shaped gift is sure to tick all the boxes with your lovely lady.
If you have the time to spare a short break to the Black Forest in Germany may be just what you both need. Take your loved one away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend a little time discovering your love for each other once more.
