Top Three "Can't Miss" Valentine's Day GiftsWednesday, February 04, 2015
Every year on the days leading up to February 14, millions of men all over the world suddenly panic. Valentine's Day is almost here and they still don't know what they are going to get for their wife, girlfriend, or other "special someone." Guys can complain all they want, but the annual holiday dedicated to love and romance is a one-sided affair. While women often get gifts for their men, as well, most of the pressure to impress falls squarely on the man's shoulders.
Fortunately, showing your sweetie that you care isn't really that tough. You don't need to think of something totally new and original in order to make her feel loved and cared for. Traditional gifts can be very sweet and sentimental -- just what Valentine's Day is supposed to be. Particularly if you personalize it with a unique touch, any one of these "standard" gifts is sure to bring a smile to your Valentine's face.
Flowers and Valentine's day are virtually synonymous. You can hardly have one without the other. So, even though nearly every woman has probably received flowers on February 14 in the past, there's no reason to overlook this classic gift. The trick is choosing a particular variety of flower, color, or arrangement that says something special about her. A generic, impersonal bouquet, on the other hand, is unlikely to impress.
Has she mentioned a favorite type of flower in the past? What is her favorite color? Do the two of you share a special memory -- such as a first date -- that involved a particular sort of flower in some way? Use questions such as these to spark your imagination. Fortunately, finding the perfect flowers shouldn't be much of a challenge ones you've narrowed down your options. For instance, Fresh Flowers has a wide range of Valentines day flowers.
Chocolate is another timeless classic. While some might call it a cliche gift, it all depends on how you do it. Just make sure the chocolate you choose reflects her preferences. For instance, maybe she really likes white chocolate but hates dark. Bringing her a box of white chocolate will likely make here eyes light up with happiness. It shows that you pay attention to her and that you know what she likes.
Teddy Bear or Other Plush
Again, the trick is to show you get her as an individual. For instance, maybe she's always loved koalas. While a generic "I Love You" bear may fall flat, a plush koala holding a heart will almost certainly be a big hit.
A successful gift isn't so much about spending a lot or even being original. The key is showing you know and appreciate her for the unique and special woman she is.
