It’s that time of the year when people want to show their partner just how special they are, so all around the world sizable teddy bears, chocolates and flowers are being bought and delivered on the most romantic day of them all: Valentine’s Day.

This is the first Valentine’s Day that I’ll have a girlfriend and, if I’m honest, I initially had absolutely no idea where or how I would find the perfect gift for her. It’s still early in our relationship and I wanted to find a present that wasn’t too extravagant but that still showed her just how much she means to me.

I headed to a shopping centre with no gift inspiration at all, but then I saw the name PANDORA. For those of you who don’t know PANDORA, it’s a jewellery manufacturer that designs and creates pretty unique, hand-crafted gold and silver jewellery for women.Pandora - Final-16

Aside from their jewellery, I was also interested in a recent survey that they commissioned, which found out that 83% of men confess that they struggle to find the perfect gift. This made me feel a lot better. Also, according to the survey, 75% of the women have pretended to like a gift that they have received, and 45% got flowers when what they really wanted was jewellery.

Armed with this bit of insight I searched the web for PANDORA. To make it easy for men to find the ideal gift they have a “Gift Finder” section, where a few simple questions help PANDORA put together a selection of jewellery that will suit your partner, for a whole variety of occasions. I was pretty clueless before finding PANDORA, but through their website I found a few perfect gifts: a Petals of Love ring, earrings, necklace and a bracelet with charms.Pandora - Final-12The Petals of Love jewellery uses a clover design which is actually perfect, because I do feel lucky being with my girlfriend, and this collection represents our new adventure together. Come on gents, get your special lady a gift that you know she’ll love 100%.Pandora - Final-11Pandora - Final-17
