Romantic Love Gifts

Red roses are traditionally a romantic gift.

Whether it is for Christmas, a birthday, Valentine's day or just because she's special, a romantic gift is rarely inappropriate for your significant other. No matter what you choose to give, the key is to keep your partner in mind and choose something based on her tastes and interests. The message you want to convey in your gift is your appreciation of her, your treasured time together and the time you anticipate to have together in the future.

Go Traditional

Consider a traditional token of love and affection. A bouquet of flowers, chocolates, or a love note on a card will be well received no matter the length of time you've been together with your romantic interest. However, be sure to customize your gift to your love. Know his favorite flower or sweet. With a traditional gift like this, the meaning is in the amount of thought you placed in choosing the flower or candy. For example, if your significant other is allergic to chocolate, a chocolate gift would be a bad idea.


Jewelry is an appropriate token of your love and affection. Both men and women can appreciate well-crafted jewelry. If your romance is not ready for an engagement ring, consider jewelry using other precious and semi-precious stones. For a blooming romance, give a promise ring as an early token of your devotion. If you want to give something less serious than a promise ring but with a deep meaning, consider gifting an Irish Claddagh or a poesy ring with a declaration of love. If the love of your life has been in your life for many years, consider a diamond journey pendant or a diamond anniversary band.

Something for Your Wall

If you and your beloved have plans to cohabitate, consider giving her a Welsh love spoon. A Welsh love spoon is a wooden spoon intricately carved with symbols of love and affection. Hung on the wall in the home as you would a picture, it serves as an unassuming symbol of your love.


If you and your partner have been together for a while, consider giving a digital photo frame. Collect pictures of the two of you together throughout the years onto an SD card for the photo frame. When turned on and displayed in your home, it will cycle through and display all of your cherished memories. You can easily add more photos to your digital album by storing them onto the same SD card. If you run out of space, you'll only need to upgrade the card.
