We've come up with a few gift ideas that are guaranteed to impress. So if you have the budget and you want to make an impression, here are a few ways to win your girlfriend over.
A trip to Paris
Sure, it’s clichéd but it’s clichéd for a reason. This is the city of love, a place that is stepped in romance. Nobody ever said “Ugh, he got me a holiday to Paris.”
Booking a holiday to Paris is more than just a weekend city break. It’s a declaration that you want to make memories together. It’s the start of the kind of story that ends with “We’ll always have Paris.”
A designer handbag
This one can be tricky if you’re not a women’s fashion expert, which most of us aren’t. Still, a quality designer handbag by Stella McCarthy, Marc Jacobs or Michael Kors will be something that she’ll have forever.
Asking her friends or family is one option or you can do a bit of research by looking at her favourite bags. A good shop assistant will be able to suggest some designer options if you can give her an indication of your girlfriend’s taste.
The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer
A hairdryer may not sound like an impressive gift but Dyson’s hair dryer is a different animal, thanks to its cutting edge style and technology. Intelligent heat control, faster drying, reduced noise and a range of styling options make it a seriously impressive piece of tech.
But the fact that it’s a thing of beauty will be what evokes the “Oohs” of appreciation when your other half unwraps it.
A new phone
Everyone loves getting the latest phone. Even if we don’t strictly need a new phone, there’s nothing like upgrading to the newest model.
Picking her up a shiny new iPhone 7 Plus or the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is always going to be a winner. Or if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to that, an upgrade on her current phone will always go down well.
A luxury spa weekend
Everyone likes getting pampered. Booking a luxury spa weekend will give her a chance to kick back and enjoy the royal treatment. Just make sure you book it for two!
That way she can take a mate or relative and enjoy a girls’ weekend away. Unless you fancy getting in on the action as well, in which case we won’t judge!
