Valentines Day is fast approaching and, though many men want to get something special for their loved one on this day, they ultimately settle for the traditional flowers and a box of chocolates. Most men settle on flowers and chocolate because they don't know what to get her and, in the midst of an anxiety attack due to the worry of getting something she doesn't want, they do just that. Now don't get me wrong, woman like flowers and chocolate but, it is an item that is low on our "wish list" of special gifts.
So here are a few tips on picking that gift that truly tells her you were thinking of her.
Tip 1 : Make a list of things that she is interested in or has a passion for. It could be technology, music, art, a good cause, shoes, hand bags and yes, even jewelry. The point is to make a list of things that she is connected with personally and to choose a gift associated with those interest.
Tip 2 : Keep in mind, its not about how expensive a gift is and, in fact, its not about a gift at all. What she really wants is to be shown that you are thinking of her and that she is special. This could be as simple as writing 'I love you' on her mirror and making her favorite breakfast. Those special times are far more favored and memorable than receiving an over priced pair of earrings.
Tip 3 : Make it personal by keeping it simple. What I mean is, going out to dinner and a movie is fine but, what is even better in her mind is you serving a special meal, cooked personally by you, at a lovely table set with flowers and wine and snuggling afterward on the couch to watch one of her favorite movies.
Tip 4 : Help make her life easier whether its just on that special day or something you can do to help her each day. These are the gifts that keep on giving. How you ask? Simple things like taking the kids to their Grandparent's for the day so you two have time together or doing the laundry and cleaning the house.
