It’s Valentine’s. She’s expecting you to be a little cheesier. The problem: You have no idea what to get for her. And she isn’t making it easy for you, thus forcing you to tap into your totally unreliable mind-reading skills.
Sure, you can just get her a bouquet of roses and be done with it. But that’s too easy. If she’s so special to you, you’ve got to make it a little more memorable than that.
Our tip: Use a little imagination (and, yes, a little bit of money, too) on your gift so she’ll feel the love. Below are some ideas.

If you can afford it, go for diamonds (always a girl’s best friend) or gold (good for when the economy goes bad). If not, an engraved necklace is a thoughtful piece she'd love to show off.

Everyone loves new undies. She’ll love it. You’ll love it. Just don’t get something overly kinky (say, panties with a cat’s tail poking out) because then she’ll say, “You bought this for you, sicko.”
Also, not recommended for relationships under one month of age.

Spray it with your perfume. She’ll have something to hug when she misses you…and something to stab when you haven’t been a good boyfriend. Pro-tip: Avoid if your girlfriend has ever been associated with the words, “athletic,” “boyish,” or “pragmatic.”
