The classic gifts on Valentine’s day where we express our love are mostly tailored around what women want. Your man on the other hand may prefer a practical gift idea such as a romantic night at home on a budget. You can express your love by understanding what your partner would appreciate the most in a gift. A personalized gift where you can express gratitude to your loved one can be as simple as a date night at home where you could write a thoughtful greeting card that will make your partner feel appreciated and prepare a candlelit dinner of one of his favorite meals. You can always buy the dessert and have a bath together sprinkled with aromatic bath salts with candles and even a bottle of wine. A perfect way of unwinding, relaxing and spending time with your loved one. Your partner may even prefer an expensive adrenaline heart pumping gift such as a hot air balloon ride for the two of you. Know what he likes and he will know how much you care by doing something that is tailored towards him – your guidance on deciding the perfect gift idea.
To me, Valentine’s Day is more about an experience that lovers share on this day rather than the exchange of traditional over-commercialised gifts. If you do buy a gift, buy something that he actually wants and if he does bring you bunch of red roses and a box of chocolates, then it’s even more a reason to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to share the experience by indulging together on the box of chocolates.
I hope you have a fabulous Valentine’s Day!
