Roses are red, Violets are blue, Confused is me ‘cause I know not what to get you…..
To give or not to give? How much is too much or not enough? In like but not love? Been together for so long, you done used up all your tricks? Haven’t been together long enough to bring out the artillery? Well, I think I have some answers for all you lovers out there who have no idea what to give to your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re in love or lust, been around for a week or a decade, here are some suggestions I think would go over well on almost anybody:
A year or less: Give her a card (that says more than ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ but less than ‘Baby, I can’t live without you’) and a box of (her favorite) candy, flower arrangement, CD, book, movie (that she may have mentioned was her favorite or that she’d like to have) or bottle of wine/liquor with a set of pretty wine/cocktail glasses and dinner (restaurant or homemade). Bonus: Send flowers, candy or message to her at work.
1-3 years: Give her a card (that says more than ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and along the lines of, ‘Baby, I don’t wanna live without you’) and a nice bottle of perfume, a pair of sexy shoes and/or a sexy dress (but only if you know her correct size & taste) or tickets to an upcoming concert, play or other social event she may enjoy or a romantic, overnight stay at a nice hotel complete with dinner, cocktails and (you for) dessert. Bonus: Send flowers, candy or message to her at work.
3-5 years: Give her a card (that says more than ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and tells her how much you love and appreciate her) and a nice piece of jewelry, a romantic weekend away, a night to herself (if you have children), brunch/lunch and his & her spa treatments or pay for dance (or some other extracurricular activity the two of you may enjoy) lessons. Bonus: Send flowers, candy or message to her at work.
5-10 years: Give her a card (that says more than ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and that expresses your deep love for & devotion to her), a nice piece of jewelry and romantic night at home (that includes dinner, catered or cooked by you, complete with candlelight & music), set of sexy sheets (followed by a sexy romp that includes oils, massages & other play things/activites), a day of pampering, romantic road trip or take her to do something together that you two have never done.
Bonus: Send flowers, candy or message to her at work.
10+ years: : Give her a card (that says more than ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and nothing short of ‘Baby, I can’t imagine life without you) a nice piece of jewelry and use your imagination! Bonus: Send flowers, candy or message to her at work.
Fellas, please take no offense at the one-sidedness of this post. I know some men do like to receive gifts but, for the most part, Valentine’s Day is a woman’s holiday. Also, because I am a woman, it was easy for me to come up with things I believe other women would enjoy. Of course, you should take into consideration, your sweetheart’s likes/dislikes, personality and temperament. Not all women wear perfume and not all women appreciate gifts of jewelry. Tune into your lover and listen to what she says (and doesn’t say). If all else fails, ask her sister or best friend. If you take me up any of the above, come back and let me know how much your sweetheart liked it (or not)!
Please note (if you haven’t already): It’s all in the card! ;-)
