Guys, correct me if I’m wrong but February 14th can be a beautiful, romantic day or a nightmare, depending on whether you choose the right Valentine’s day gift for her.
Christmas and the holiday season, is only just over and that was bad enough and here you are again, a few weeks into the New Year and you have to start over!
How do you know what’s appropriate and what’s not, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Let me offer some advice…
After a long career in retail, focusing on gifts for women, I think I know a thing or two about what she would like this Valentine’s day.
Firstly if you have just started dating, then don’t get too serious or heavy with your gift. My suggestion is to keep things fun, fluffy and light-hearted.
If you’re gift is too serious at this stage, you may scare her off by being too intense. Look at fun,useful Valentine’s gifts or maybe a nice beauty gift basket, handmade chocolates… something along those lines.
If you’ve been dating some time or are in a serious long term relationship, then you can be very romantic here. Go the traditional route and buy beautiful jewelry, an amazing bouquet of flowers, a romantic couples gift basket or try something a little more adventurous like a hot air balloon ride, hire a vintage car for a day out, a helicopter ride, whatever you think she would really enjoy.
If funds permit, then a romantic break away from home, is always going to be well received. It doesn’t have to be too far away, maybe just a night in a luxury hotel with a spa?
One word of caution, if you’re contemplating buying lingerie as a Valentine’s day gift. If you’re in a new relationship… don’t! It could come across as a touch sleazy!
If you’re in a long term relationship, then yes… women do like to receive lingerie but make sure it’s tasteful. Stay away from anything that’s tacky! Also make sure you get the right size and whatever you do, don’t get something too big – that will not go down well! If in doubt go for something like a silk chemise, which is more forgiving.
If funds are low then it’s all about romantic gestures. Breakfast in bed, a picnic in the park, preparing a romantic, candlelit dinner. Use your skills and your imagination.
Put some thought into making this a romantic day, where you can really show your love.
