I asked my GF what she wants on Valentine from my side and she asked me to buy a GOLD bracelet or a GOLD chain. I bieng an student and a part time worker cannot afford it and she also have agreed to it but I know she was hurt a bit from inside. Can anyone suggest me some nice gifts that I can buy for her and to make her happy.

you shouldn't ask her what she wants on valentines day? you should be the one to know what she wants? cause if you really love her you should know what she likes and dislikes are. people say its the thought that counts. so whatever you give to her as long that it comes from the heart she will accept it. remember don't ever ask a girl whats she wants or you may not be able to but or get it for them. it will be such a disappointment even if they don't show it. if she really love you adn care for you she will accept it. i think she will after she loves right? here are some things you can give her... there is the flower and chocolates. or a dinner for two. or read her a poetry that you made. or just simply write her a letter that show how much you her. i just hope some of my suggestion helps you a lot....

Something sweet my love did for me was a small book of coupons. They had something small and sweet written on each one like "Redeem for a free back rub." or "This is good for a whole afternoon of cuddling." Just sweet things like that. I gave my love a card. I drew it myself and painted it also. She loved it. I don't know how well your drawing skills are though. Another sweet thing she was going to do for me is put a puzzle together, nothing to big mind you, and flip it over somehow and write a love note on it. She was going to keep a piece and then give me the puzzle. In the end I'd have to go to her for the last piece. It was a sweet idea because I love puzzles. In the end I'm saying you don't have to buy her something. Something made is just as good. Or given like a back rub or an all over massage. Her favorite meal cooked by you. Anything.

If she loves you, she'll be happy with whatever you give her, especially if you think of it yourself. I, myself, think Valentine's day is over-commercialised. You don't need to spend a whole lot of money to tell somebody you love them. What ever happened to the little things that mean so much? I would try to buy her some roses, or a single rose if you can't afford a bunch, and a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Tell her that you would have loved to buy her the gold trinkets if you could afford them, but you will bear them in mind for a birthday or Christmas gift. Then, present her with her chocolates and rose(s). I'm sure she'll be delighted that you thought to get here something that she can take pleasure in. It's a traditional way of showing your love for her, without it costing you more than you can afford. I wish you good luck with this. If she loves you, she won't mind one little bit what you give her, as long as it's a token of your love and thoughts of her. Brightest Blessings and a very Happy Valentine's Day to you.

You shouldn't have to buy her anything to make he feel loved and special and she shouldn't expect you to buy her something like that, especially if you are a student and only work parttime. Try making her something from the heart. You could do a romantic picnic dinner/lunch or make it at night when the stars are out and have it like a snack type thing where you two can share some chocolate covered strawberries or something and star gaze all night.
