Not sure what the best gift is for your wife? Instead of buying your wife scratchy lacy underwear that you like and she doesn’t (just don’t do it…) you should give her some high-quality gifts that reflect your love and care for her.
If you can’t think of any gifts for your wife, and she hasn’t given you any hints, then check out the list below for some great gift ideas for her.

1. Gifts for the wife who likes to stay home
If your wife enjoys getting comfortable at home, nothing is more comfortable than a good silk pajama set.
Silk pajamas are made with high quality silk that’s incredibly soft and smooth, and will be perfect for your wife to lounge around the house in comfort.
Don’t go cheap when it comes to silk pajamas, because cheap ones will be much, much less comfortable than the more expensive alternatives. These Silk Pajamas are made from high quality silk and will be well worth the investment.
2. Gifts for the wife who likes a little sparkle
If your wife likes to go out and dress up, then some gorgeous jewelry can complete her outfit. The best thing about it is that she will remember it was a gift from you every time she puts it on, and so you’ll be in her good books whenever she’d getting dressed up.
It doesn’t matter whether you buy a necklace, earrings, bracelets, or a ring, some high end jewelry can make her Valentine’s Day complete. If she already has a couple of rings she wears all of the time (I only ever wear my wedding ring and engagement ring now), then go for a different item of jewelry as otherwise your ring may end up unworn unless it goes well with her existing rings.
If you can afford it, buy something well made and with precious stones and metals, such as real diamonds instead of cubic zirconium, because they will hold their value for a much longer time. For a real standout, pick a colored gemstone. I love this 14 Karat White Gold Emerald Pendant.
3. Gifts to help your wife sleep better
We all struggle to sleep from time to time, but some people find relaxing and getting to sleep harder than others. If you want to help your wife relax and get to sleep more easily, you should get her a weighted blanket.
Weighted blankets have been shown to help people fall asleep faster and get a better night of sleep. They are supposed to be especially good for people with anxiety.
I looked at weighted blankets online for ages before finally buying one, as I wasn’t sure if the claims about the blankets were real. My husband has anxiety and often has restless legs at night, so in the end I decided it was worth a try.
It has been a fantastic investment, it’s so comforting to sleep under a weighted blanket, and just feels like you are getting a full-body hug. This Luxury Weighted Blanket is super fluffy and plush.
Weighted blankets vary in weight to help either minorly restless sleepers or very restless sleepers, and also depending on if you want the blanket to cover just one person or both of you.
4. Gifts for the wife who needs some rest and relaxation
One of the best things that my husband can buy for me when I am stressed out and tired is a spa day.
You can treat your wife with a spa day in a few ways. First, you could do it at home with a variety of supplies that you can get online, and give her the day off to just relax while you take care of her.
The first thing you will need for your wife’s at-home spa treatment gift is some luxury bath bombs. These are my favorite because of the sleek packaging and relaxing scent. Your wife will love them too.
The second thing for your wife’s at home spa treatment gift is a face mask. This set of two masks smell great and will leave her skin feeling as good as new.
The third part of your wife’s at home spa treatment gift is some fancy hand cream. You can’t go wrong with this hand cream, it’s light and fluffy and it smells divine.
To give her the best experience, why not include a hand written coupon for a 30 minute neck and back massage from you? It’s a lovely personal touch and will leave her feeling warm and fuzzy.
If you are in an area where spas are open and you can travel, the alternative would be getting a coupon or voucher for a half-day or full-day treatment, so she can take herself off for a relaxing break.
5. Gifts for the wife who loves to cook
Proceed with caution. Only buy your wife something for the kitchen if she has said this is what she would really like. Otherwise, you are just buying an appliance that will benefit the whole family, and treating it like it is something special for her.
If your wife is keen on cooking at home and has asked for a kitchen appliance, then a slow cooker might be exactly what she needs to take her meals to the next level.
Slow cookers allow you to make extremely tender meat even from cheap cuts by cooking it consistently over the course of hours and hours.
There are tons of recipes specifically for slow cookers in particular, so she’ll be in no shortage of meals that she can make.
The trendiest slow cooker at the moment is the Instant Pot.
The Instant Pot is actually a multi-cooker, which means it can be a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, a rice cooker, and it can steam, warm or saute food too. If your wife asks for a slow cooker and you really want to surprise her, splash out and get the Instant Pot instead.
I hope the above list of gifts for your wife has given you some ideas of great presents to keep you in her good books.
