What to Buy Your Wife for Valentine's Day

Are you ready for Valentine's Day? Do you have a gift for your wife?

Ah, who am I kidding? Most of my readers are women, so it might not help to give gift ideas for a wife, but hey, maybe it will give you ideas of what to "suggest" to your hubby, right? And with Valentine's Day only 8 days away, there's no time to waste, especially if you're ordering online.

Maybe this year, you can hint and see if he takes it. Create a wishlist on Amazon with anything and everything that you'd like to get, send him the link and see if he actually follows through. Here are some ideas for great V-Day presents:


Jewelry is always a classic Valentine's gift and for good reason: what better way to remind her she's beautiful than by buying her something beautiful. Here are some classics for a great price.

Gold Hoop Earrings are a perfect addition to any ear and you don't have to worry about irritating metals. Currently (as of this writing), these were 70% off, only $90 instead of $300. Great way to say, "You're mine forever."

For something more unique, try jewelry shaped like animals. This Mother and Baby Turtle Diamond Pendant Necklace is a great gift for the mother of your children. Other options include a rose gold diamond elephant pendant and a penguin pendant with black and white diamonds.

Of course, the ultimate classic is a pair of diamond stud earrings. If that's out of your budget, consider getting a pair of stud earrings with Swarovski crystals. Many consider these just as beautiful and made from the highest quality crystals. Best of all, your sweetheart won't worry about losing them unlike real diamonds. For only $29, it's a great gift if you're on a budget.

Other Great Gifts

If jewelry isn't the right gift, there are many other choices. Here are a few:
  • Fragrances: Does your sweetie need some more of her favorite fragrance? You can find many of the most popular scents online for a fraction of the cost of department stores. Valentine's savings range from 25 to 50% off, so it's a great time to replenish your supply.
  • Watches: If you just realized that your wife has never owned a nice, jewelry-quality watch in the 10 years that you've married (*winks in hubby's direction*), maybe it's time to look at watches available. From rose gold to two-tone to Swarovski crystal, there are some beautiful watches for a great price.

    Burgi has a diamond bracelet watch that is listed at $750, but is on sale now for only $156.

    But this isn't the only great deal. Right now, many watches are on sale for up to 75% off. 
  • Flowers are always lovely. Just make sure you know whether your wife, girlfriend, or hopefully soon-to-be girlfriend enjoys flowers. Bonus points if you talk to her mother or best friend to find out her favorite flower. Don't just stick with red roses. There are so many flowers to choose from and the more creative, the better!
  • Love coupons are a fun idea for those who don't have a lot of dough. Many sites are offering FREE printable love coupons that you can personalize and give to your significant other, like those by Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night. All you need is paper and a printer.
