While a beautiful bouquet will always brighten her day, it's good to mix it up from time to time. Check out these 10 just-because gifts.

You don't have to be as clueless as Vince Vaughn in "The Break Up" to know that every girl likes flowers.

When you want to show your special lady that you love her, a bouquet of roses is a classic choice. But you can be more creative than that, and you don't need a special occasion to be romantic.

Check out these 10 great just-because gifts that are sure to put a smile on her face.

A Handwritten Letter

Surprise your lady with a handwritten love note. Nothing says "I love you" better than you can in your own words.

Take some time to tell your special someone why you can't live without her. You don't need a special occasion to write her a note.

Slip your letter in her purse or coat pocket. When she finds it, she'll have a great surprise.

Want to score even more points? Take it further and leave her a trail of love notes throughout the house.

A Dinner Date at Home

One of the best ways to win the heart of a man is through his stomach, but the same is often true for your lady. Cook her a tasty home cooked meal and she's sure to swoon.

Prepare her favourite foods. She'll appreciate your effort and know that you care about her.

Whether she has a big day coming up or you want to show affection just because, a home cooked meal is a great way to show you love her.

A Day Off from Chores

Surprise her by doing more than your share of the housework. She's undoubtedly tired after a long day, so let her kick back while you clean the house.

Disagreements over chores are one of the most common reasons couples fight.

When one person feels neglected or that their spouse isn't meeting expectations, it triggers a chain reaction of tension.

Strengthen your relationship and stoke the fires of romance with the broom and mop.

A Spa Day

Treat your lady like a queen. A spa day is one of the best just-because gifts you can give her. She'll appreciate the pampering and come back relaxed and refreshed.

She deserves to experience a day of massages, body scrubs, mani- and pedicures.

And because it's unexpected, it'll be an even bigger treat. Book her spa day in advance and surprise her with it.

A Bubble Bath

Few things are as relaxing as a hot bubble bath. Pick out your lady's favourite bath salts or bombs and draw her the perfect bath.

Different scents correlate with your body's energy centres. If you aren't sure which are her favourites, ask the store clerk to help you pick out ones that will elevate her mood the best.

Let her have a peaceful evening. Some jazz music and mood lighting can turn her bubble bath into a romantic retreat.

A Surprise Concert

Find out in advance when one of her favourite musicians or bands is in town and get her tickets. You will earn bonus points if it's an act she's been dying to see but hasn't been able to.

Concert tickets are great just-because gifts since they don't have to be tied to a specific day that's important to your relationship.

Don't wait on the calendar to do something special. Take advantage of the opportunities in front of you to make them special.

You can make a whole evening out of your trip to the concert. Start with a nice dinner and treat her to an amazing time.

An Unexpected Romantic Evening

The best gifts are those you don't expect. You don't need it to be Valentine's Day or an Anniversary to be romantic.

Plan an unexpected but romantic evening for her and pull out all the stops. How about a candlelit dinner, soft music, and a scrumptious dessert?

Arrange a babysitter if you need to. You'll both benefit from quality time together and being able to reconnect and have uninterrupted conversation.

And this doesn't have to be expensive. Make her something, carefully select the background music and ambiance, and finish the evening with a sensual massage.

A Lover's Collage

Why stop at a card? Be creative and make a collage that she'll treasure forever.

Print your favourite photos from Instagram or Facebook and arrange them in a creative way. Or, if you're artistically inclined, you could draw or paint her something that symbolizes your love for her.

She'll want to hang it someplace special and, every time she looks at this present, she'll think of you.

Just-because gifts like this work really well because she'll know that you're thinking of her often and that you've been paying attention to her.

An Old School Mixtape

Borrow a page from your younger self and show her you love her with an old-school mixtape.

Selecting music that's meaningful to your relationship will show her that you value her and have been listening to her. You can also use it as a way to tell her how you feel about her currently.

Have fun making just-because gifts like these.

Unlike a flower that will eventually die, she'll be able to keep this memento for a long time. Every time she plays the tape, she'll think of you.

A Sexy Piece of Lingerie

Show your lady she's sexy all the time. Buy her some lingerie that complements her figure and makes her feel good about herself.

It's important to acknowledge her in between special occasions. Especially if she's overworked and under a lot of stress, she may need reminding of how beautiful she is to you.

Don't miss an opportunity to boost her confidence and self-esteem. She'll thank you as only she can.

Just-Because Gifts and More

Any day can be a special occasion if you put enough thought into it. So treat the woman in your life with a gift just because it'll make her feel special.
