5 Important Gift-Tips!
1. Always Have Backup Gifts
If you are reading this because your girlfriends birthday, your anniversary date, valentines day, or Christmas is around the corner and you are looking for some inspiration, you are making a big mistake. The following situations explain, why I always have a backup of romantic gifts in a secret place and you should too:
Situation 1: I’m always late when it comes to searching for a gift. I can’t tell you how many times I had only a few days left to find something great, so I searched the internet, asked some friends and went to the city but still couldn’t find a gift that she would make her happy. The local shops only had boring stuff and I wasn’t sure if it came on time when I ordered online. This time, is was my girlfriends birthday and after a few hours searching in different online shops, I finally found something that she may like. Her birthday was on a Friday and the site said it should be there on Wednesday. Guess what happened? It came Saturday and I had to tell my girlfriend that I will give it to her the next day. Which wouldn’t be a big deal for me, but girls are different. In female language, it means: I care so little about you, that I forgot your birthday.
Situation 2: I vividly remember the day when me and my girlfriend were together for exactly two years. It was a Saturday after a stressful week and she joyfully welcomes me. When I entered the kitchen I saw a big plate of self made chocolate muffins in the shape of a heart. I was really surprised and asked her “That’s so cute, why did you do that?” she replied “Are you serious? Don’t you know which day we have?” – My heart fell into my stomach, I totally forgot it. My mind was racing “she’s so happy, I can’t tell her that I forgot it” so I tried to act cool and said “sure, but I didn’t expect such a cute gesture”. I felt so bad and I could tell she noticed that I forgot it, because I didn’t even had a small gift.
That day I swear to myself that I will always have some backup gifts as little surprises ready, just in case. Gifts don’t have an expiry date, they don’t get cheaper and there will for sure be a situation where you will be very thankful that you got something.
2. Surprise Her!
If you have some knowledge about female psychology, then you know that the way to a women’s heart is to treat her like a little girl. I don’t mean that you shouldn’t take her seriously, although it can be effective sometimes. But what do little girls love more than anything else? They love surprises! It’s unexpected, it creates excitement, joy and above all it shows that you care and appreciate her. To increase the excitement, tell her that you got a very small gift for her, let her close her eyes and wait a minute.
Size and price don’t matter, it’s all about the gesture. It can be something between $5 to $20 and trust me, if you do this from time to time, she will pay it back ten times in one way or another. It’s the best investments you can make and honestly, just seeing her happy will be worth it.
3. It’s Not About The Money
I always thought that the more I pay for a gift, the more she will appreciate it. This might be the case if your girlfriend is a gold digger, but if she truly loves you, there is only one attribute that should decide how much she appreciates your gift: the amount of work you put into it. This work can be physical, for example, an artwork that you made yourself. Or this work can be mental when you spend a lot of time to find out something unique that she really likes, especially when it has a deeper meaning to her.
4. Universal Romantic Gifts
Universal gifts are the ones that can be used in any situation and are perfect as backup gifts. I have always a few of them in a secret place and even if my current relationship doesn’t last, I could give it to my next girlfriend.
Jewelry – Number 1 on this list because it feels expensive, but you can get awesome items for under $30.
Matching Couple Jewelry – You and your girlfriend each have one item, like a half of a broken heart which perfectly matches to each other.
Home Decor – Women love beautiful things and it’s always great to have something standing in her apartment that reminds her of you, every day.
Be careful with these gifts:
Funny Stuff – Men love funny gadgets but women mostly don’t and it’s often only funny for a short period of time.
Guessing her taste – Perfume, shower gel, clothing and everything else where you have to guess her taste is dangerous unless she gave you a hint.
5. Personalized Romantic Gifts
These are romantic gifts for her, that are unique and have a little background, which connects the two of you. They are perfect for special occasions like her birthday, your anniversary date, valentines day or Christmas and therefore cost a little more.
Ideas for Personalized Jewelry
- Coordinates of the place you met, you first kissed or your birthplaces
- Your handwritten signatures
- Your names or just the first letter (initial)
- The date of your anniversary
You can’t go wrong with these romantic gifts for her. They are cute, unique and have a connection to you. I always have 1-2 personalized gifts stored, in case there is something important that I forgot and it’s too late to order them. It’s also useful when I don’t find the right idea or I’m just too lazy, I mean busy to search after something. Additionally, I keep 4-5 little surprises to reward her if she was very cute or just to surprise her when she is sad and had a bad day.
