FAQ
  • What are some other gift ideas for a girlfriend?

    Giving your girlfriend something that shows how much you care is what’s important—and it doesn’t have to come in a box. Some of the most meaningful gifts can’t be bought at the store. They’re sentimental gestures that come from the heart.


    For example, give her a hand-drawn map of meaningful places in your relationship and then go on an excursion, revisiting each spot along the way. Or surprise her by cooking her favorite meal at home— by candlelight! Feeling like you want to pamper her? Draw her a bubble bath and dim the lights— she’ll be in heaven. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box—letting your heart lead the way! 

  • Do I need to follow traditional and modern gift ideas for a girlfriend?

    It’s not customary or expected to follow traditional or modern gift themes when you’re dating, leaving the occasion wide open in terms of gifting. However, symbolism can add meaning to your gift. For example, giving your girlfriend five small photo albums, each representing a year of your time together, is a sweet way to celebrate the fifth anniversary.
