Valentine’s Day gifts are the true test of a boyfriend or girlfriend’s creativity. Whether you are buying a Valentine’s Day gift for a guy or a girl, you have to come up with a unique Valentine’s Day that manages to be special, romantic, one-of-a-kind—and yet exactly what your sweetheart wanted.

Ladies, you can get a jewelry gift for your boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, and guys, there is no way to show your love for that special girl than with a stunning piece of diamond jewelry as a Valentine’s Day gift.
One of the hottest Valentine’s Day ideas this year: personalized Valentine’s Day gifts. When you personalize a gift, you show how much thought and effort you put into making your boyfriend or girlfriend’s Valentine’s Day gift perfect. No matter what piece of jewelry you choose, a gorgeous pendant or a sleek pair of cufflinks, engraving is a wonderful way to make a unique Valentine’s Day totally personal . You can choose a romantic font and a special message so that you sweetheart will always remember Valentine’s Day 2011.
There are other ways to personalize a Valentine’s Day gift. Incorporating your loved one’s birthstone into a Valentine’s Day gift is one way to make a gift beautiful and personal and also catch on to one of the hugest trends of the year—gemstones. If your girlfriend was born in September, you can’t go wrong with a simple but stunning pair of sapphire bezel-set stud earrings. Stud earrings of all kinds are one of the top-selling Valentine’s Day gifts—they’re practical, comfortable, gorgeous and no girl can ever have too many pairs!
If you want to go a little more glam with your Valentine’s Day gift, but still incorporate a gem birthstone, opt for a stunning diamond-encrusted pendant necklace that features a dramatic birthstone gem, or a glamorous cocktail ring with the corresponding gemstone. If your girlfriend’s birthday is in February, make it two gifts in one with this jaw-dropping amethyst and diamond number—the best Valentine’s Gift she’s ever received.
