When February rolls around the stores pack their shelves with everything you can think of in the shape of a heart and sprinkled with red and pink paint. You will see dozens of red roses lining the floral shops all adorned with ferns and babies breath. It is no wonder why men get confused as to what is the most original gift to get for the special woman in their life.
The top selling items in February are always chocolate in heart shaped containers and roses. You can bet if you go with chocolate and roses you will not get any extra points for originality. If you really want to make an impression you need to know the things that she likes. Women will always tell you “it’s the little things that count” so be sure to pay attention to the details.
You want to know such things as her favorite meal as well as dessert. You should also know her favorite flower, don’t just assume that she will love a dozen of roses. She may love carnations and it might be yellow ones instead of the usually pink and red for Valentines Day. You can use these little details to make a special Valentines Day that she will never forget.
Instead of taking her to her favorite restaurant you can try your hand ant making her favorite dish but if cooking isn’t your thing then you can order her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant and serve it up at home for her. Have her favorite flowers as your center piece and spoil her with some champagne and strawberries for dessert.
For some extra points you should also know her favorite romantic music and have a CD for her as a gift. This will help to set the mood and you can be sure that it is not some cheesy pick up music. She will really be impressed that you went that extra mile to get her favorite things and not just the usual chocolate and roses.
There are many ways to make your gifts original and you do not have to spend an arm and a leg to do it. Keep in mind that she will be more then happy to tell you things that she likes and things that she doesn’t like. The best thing is to try to know this information in advance so you can make the arrangements in plenty of time.
Don’t fall into the same old routine that most every man does. Many men wait until the last minute to get their gifts, then they are left with the cheap left over gifts and that doesn’t go over well with the ladies. The last thing you want to do is show up with a stuffed animal and a rose from the gas station.
