Valentine's Day can be a huge deal, especially when you're in the earlier stages of your relationship. If you're stuck on what to get your partner this year, we've got you covered. We asked celebrity matchmaker Rori Sassoon to give us her best tips on V-Day gift giving and you'll definitely want to see what she has to say. 

"When shopping for a Valentine's Day gift, keep in mind that the gift is as big of a deal as your partner places on gift giving," Rori shared. "Maybe they're a fan of quality time over a luxury gift. Take that gesture of love and perhaps put it toward a shared experience. Most importantly, while you might strive to be the ultimate gift giver, stay within your means. If you have anxiety about being able to afford something over budget, rethink how you can find a similar item at a price point you're comfortable with." 

Choosing the right gift to give your partner for Valentine's Day can depend a lot on where you are in your relationship. After all, if you just started dating someone, the types of gifts you give won't be at the same level as the ones you'd give one year later.

Rori shared her tips on the best types of gifts to get your partner for every stage of your relationship, and we rounded up some ideas to help point you in the right direction. Check those out below. 

Newly Dating

When you just started dating someone around Valentine's Day, you want to show that you care (if that is the case) without going over the top. Give them a card, and a small gift. You're showing that you want to continue seeing them, without unintentionally making them feel overwhelmed. Have a cute Valentine's Day. But remember, there's no need to go crazy—you're only just getting to know this person.

Casually Dating and Seeing Where it Goes

If you're in a situationship or something more casual, steer away from wrapping presents. Set the scene for a sexy night instead — lingerie, candles, romantic music, and maybe a sex toy or two. Your "relationship" is based on physical chemistry, so amplify it on this lovey-dovey day. There's no reason to excessively spend on someone you don't necessarily see a long-term future with just yet. Have fun and play up your sexuality!

Officially Dating for at Least Six Months

When you've been officially dating someone for six months, clearly you're invested in each other. You want to give a gift that shows the kind of gift giver you are. Gift giving is a type of love language, and you should try to exude equal parts sexy, fun, and thoughtful into that present. Regardless of the item, remember quality over quantity! At six months, think of something along the lines of an intimate spa excursion or a concert. Shared experiences will only bring you two closer together.
