- Spa treatments: spoil her with a massage or facial instead.
- Perfume: this could be a tricky one, but if you know what she wears or what she likes then it can be a lovely present.
Remember it’s not about the cost or getting it perfect. These are only some suggestions to help you get started, you’ll know your partner and what they like so trust your instinct! Or if you’re really stuck, ask her friends!
