Gift Giving for Your Girlfriend Guide
by Mark Davies
Afraid picking up some wilted roses from the
gas station on your way home from work just won't
cut it for your girlfriend's anniversary or Christmas
gift this year? Perhaps you really are a charming
fellow who just needs a bit of guidance when it
comes to buying gifts for the girl of your dreams.
We're here to help! There are tons of options
for getting a romantic gift for you girlfriend
(or wife) that will completely sweep her off her
feet. For starters, have you noticed her perfume
bottle is running low? Pick her up a bottle of
perfume, being sure to keep in mind the scents
that she usually wears. You can also by aromatic
bath gifts- think of lotions, bubble bath, shower
gel, or lip gloss. To really put the romantic
touch, try to pick a scent or flavor that is meaningful
to her in some way. Does she love citrus fruit?
Lavender flowers? The smell of cinnamon? With
the wide variety of scents available, you may
be able to find something personal that will subtly
let her know that you are tuned in to her interests.
Is your girl the busy type who never seems to
get to relax? You might want to consider getting
her a gift certificate to a spa so she can have
the day to reflect, unwind, and of course, think
about how lucky she is to have a great guy like
you. Again, bath gifts can also be helpful in
this category. Giving her a fragrant bath bubbles
may help her when she wants to unwind.
To really take her away from it all, you might
also consider getting supplies to take her on
a romantic picnic. Nothing says love like actually
taking time out to treat her to a romantic afternoon
on Valentine's Day or on your anniversary.
Who can forget flowers? There's a reason why
so many men get flowers for their girlfriends-
women love them. Online there are a wide variety
of florists that can help you find just the perfect
arrangement for a blooming gift for your sweetie.
Pick colors that she likes- if you're unsure,
you might consider looking at the color of clothing
she wears most often as these are likely reflective
of her favorite colors. Keep in mind when buying
flowers there are also flowers that can last forever-
beautiful preserved flowers lined in gold and
porcelain flowers, for example. There's more in
the floral category than just flowers, however,
as stunning vases can also make for a romantic
gift (and a lovely place for her to put the bouquets
you plan to buy for her in the future). Perhaps
you could place a romantic note inside the vase,
hinting at the bouquets yet to come. Then, whenever
you give her the gift of flowers, she will also
be reminded of the beautiful vase you gave her.
Chances are your girlfriend loves chocolate
(perhaps almost as much as she loves you!). Chocolate
makes an excellent gift. Keep in mind her favorite
types of chocolate. Yes, there are types. Milk
chocolate, Dark chocolate, different nut varieties,
and fruit filled varieties. If you are unsure
about which is her favorite, you can always go
with a variety box for a great gift. Some online
shops will also allow you to personalize the gift
box with a personal message.
In addition, you can give the gift of her favorite
photographs or other artwork in beautiful frames,
or a pretty candles that will glow and set the
mood for a perfect romantic evening. Keep in mind
that a personal message from the heart also makes
a great gift and will definitely add to the romance
of any other gift you get for her.
