If you’re in Thailand and have a Thai girlfriend or wife or, if you’re living elsewhere but have a significant other in Thailand, it can be difficult to decide what to buy her as a Valentine’s Day gift. Thai girls take Valentine’s Day very seriously and choose gifts carefully for loved ones. In return, they expect you to do the same thing. Don’t worry though. Buying the perfect gift for a Thai significant other actually isn’t that difficult. Follow these tips and you’ll end up with the ideal gift for that special Thai someone.
Even more so than in the west, flowers on Valentine’s Day in Thailand is extremely important. Luckily, even on Valentine’s Day in Thailand, you can buy some pretty extravagant flower arrangements for not that much money. Remember too, most Thai women love cute stuff. So a big floral arrangement that includes a stuffed animal or a cute doll will also be highly appreciated. No matter how old the woman is.
Hand bags and Purses
Thai women love purses and carry a different one with just about every new outfit. If you can afford it, a designer bag will go down a treat. If you look carefully, you can get a nice leather purse and it’s just about guaranteed to win you a huge smile.
Around Valentine’s Day in Thailand, you’ll see even more cuddly toys appearing around Thailand. When you first arrive in Thailand, I thought it was for the kids but you have to learn very fast that, no, adult women love them too. Buy your girlfriend or wife a stuffed animal and see how quickly she decides she loves you even more. Even 40-year-old-plus women love cuddly toys and will appreciate one for Valentine’s Day. Particularly if it’s holding a big red heart that says I love you.
Snacks, Chocolate and Candy
Thais love food more than just about any other nationality so a great way to show your love is to give your Thai girl chocolate, Thai snacks or candy. One of my Thai friends decided she was really in love with her boyfriend when he drove across Bangkok to buy her favorite cake. And she was even more in love.
Make Up, Perfume and Lotion
Thai women spend hours hanging around department store make-up departments and drug stores buying cosmetics and smelly stuff. If you visit a Thai girl’s apartment, you won’t be able to believe how much make-up, perfume and lotion she owns. Buy your Thai girl a cute make-up set, perfume or a lovely hand or body lotion and she’ll be a very happy girlfriend or wife.
Honestly, it doesn’t even have to be expensive. Thai girls love to wear pretty bracelets, bangles, necklaces, earrings and pins and costume jewelry is just as good as the real thing. Check out the local markets and inexpensive shopping malls and buy her a beautiful bracelet and matching necklace. That, with a bouquet of roses and she might just end up being yours forever.
The seriousness of your intentions regarding a Thai girl is most easily demonstrated by purchasing gold items. And it doesn’t have to be a ring at all. Any Thai woman will be happy if you buy her a bracelet, earrings or a chain with a pendant. Unlike flowers, soft toys and chocolate, which you can order with delivery, it is better to entrust the choice of a gift from gold directly to your Thai girlfriend. Then you will be sure that the gift will be 100% successful. However, you can always give an expensive gift in the form of massive bracelets. Indeed, yellow Thai gold is of a very high standard and it can be resold with almost no loss in price.
The main thing with giving a Thai girl gifts is that it should be something that matches her taste and something that shows you put some thought into it. Make sure it’s packaged beautifully (many shops and department stores can do this for you for a small fee) and, along with some flowers, and dinner in a Thai restaurant and both you, and her, will have the perfect Valentine’s Day.
