It is a fact that a lot of men become extremely stressed out when the time comes to go looking for a romantic gift for their girlfriends. This is more often than not because they are anxious about choosing an unsuitable present. They are concerned about giving a gift that will be misinterpreted for the current phase of the relationship.

If they have just started dating their girlfriend, they may be worried that an expensive gift may be inappropriate, but at the same time, do not want to risk giving a gift that will make their girlfriend think that they are stingy.

This predicament makes buying a present for your girlfriend for St. Valentine's Day a difficult task. I will endeavor to give a couple of essential suggestions below to help you get started selecting a fitting gift for your girlfriend for St. Valentine's Day.

The first thing you have to do when trying to decide on a Valentine's Day gift for your girlfriend is to mull over what phase of the relationship you are currently in. This is very important because it will dictate which kind of gift you can give to your girlfriend. If you and your girlfriend have been dating each other for a long time and you are fairly certain that you are both committed to each other, you can consider an extravagant gift.

However, if you have only been going out for a short period and you are not certain where the relationship is heading, you might want to consider a less expensive present. There are no two ways about it, you have to weigh up your relationship, but you must also keep in mind that she might not think the same way as you.

You may feel that everything is going well and that the two of you are strongly committed, but she may feel as though the relationship is going nowhere. If you are having difficulties working out where you both stand, talk to your girlfriend about it. She will like that anyway and it will help to assure the two of you that you feel the same way about each other.

Flowers are the old stand-by and are an ideal present for a man to give his girlfriend on St. Valentine's Day, whether it is a new relationship or not. It is also such an easy gift because it is so widely associated with Valentine's Day that it is not liable to misinterpretation. A gift of a dozen red roses is considered a romantic present but it is also common enough that your girlfriend is not likely to read too much into it.

However, there is a common blunder associated with roses on Valentine's Day. For instance, your girlfriend may be upset and disappointed by a present of yellow roses because yellow roses are usually considered to symbolize friendship and not romantic love, so speak to the florist.

Jewelry is an apt gift to give to your girlfriend on Valentine's Day so long as the cost and type of the gift is proportionate to the current stage of your relationship. This is not so tricky, it is black and white really. Ask yourself the question: 'Is she worth $100?'.

However, a good middle of the road, romantic gift would be a box of expensive gourmet chocolates. It shows that you care enough to have sought out such a rare present, to have spent more than a few dollars and that you think she is sophisticated enough to appreciate them. She will love them, even if she is on a diet.
