With Valentine's day coming up next month I'm thinking about what I should get for my girlfriend. So with that in mind, I thought I'd do a quick TSR poll to get a general sense of what kind of gift girls prefer to receive. I'm not looking for specific ideas, just the general category of gift that's most popular.

I don't really do the whole cutesy thing that surrounds Valentine's Day. I don't get why girls 'expect' flowers and chocolate and all of that ****.

Well I'm not gonna take the risk of getting nothing, not when it could mean that I end up getting nothing for about month as a result!

Hahahaha! I guess... Don't do gift vouchers though. I imagine she'd think they're rather impersonal.

I'd say flowers are always a great option, and maybe chocolate unless they have a New Year's resolution to eat healthily etc. If you've been together for a while a nice piece of jewellry would be lovely but not necessary at all. I would stay away from clothes (very hard to choose the right thing that she'll like) and gift vouchers (quite impersonal and not really appropriate for Valentine's day) personally. Hope that helped!

Don't get clothes or gift vouchers. You can't really go wrong with chocolates and flowers, and maybe a piece of jewellery? Or perfume even? Treat her to a nice meal? It doesn't need to be overly expensive.

I really wouldn't appreciate flowers/chocolate/bears that say I love you. It's just too easy, boring and not me. a meal would be better or something else we could do together

Oh yeah I forgot about perfume. Her current perfume gives me a headache, so this might be a good opportunity to subtlely encourage a change. :sly: Thanks.

Not a massive fan of valentine's day, but it can be fun I suppose.

I prefer them to make me something (art, meal etc.) or take me out somewhere. Something personal that I'd remember.
Out of your options I'd go with jewelery, though everything seems a little cliched.
In the end it all depends on the girl.

Never got valentines day. I mean, why wait for for one day? Just show your partner that you love them everyday.

I guess they are kind of cliched, but I think they're cliches for a reason i.e. those are the kinds of things girls typically want.

I'd be worried that if I just made something for my gf by hand she either think it was a joke and be disappointed when she discovered it wasn't, or she'd think I was too cheap/I don't care about her enough to get her a proper gift.
