If you’re like most men, you are not the very best gift giver.
It’s not that you don’t try but you probably just don’t understand what to do, buy or plan that will really make your lady feel great.
You may have bought her a great dress when you were first dating and now you get her a dress for every birthday.
You think you are being romantic but you may just be stuck in a rut. If you are looking to branch out, try one of these 8 great gift ideas.
Plan a vacation, getaway or trip for her. Don’t just pay for the trip’s expenses… actually plan it.
Plan activities, meals and sightseeing that you know she will like. Show her you put thought and love into the trip.
2. Family Heirloom
Give her something that means a lot to you. It may be a family heirloom… or something you have had since you were a child.
Just make sure it is something she knows has a great deal of sentimental value to you. There’s nothing more romantic!
3. Something You Have Never Given Her Before
If you always give her jewelry then get her something different! The sheer surprise of getting something unexpected will make her feel great.
Sometimes men get the same things over and over again because they have the “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!” attitude.
Women, however, sometimes begin to feel like their guy isn’t putting any thought into their gifts. Try something new. It’ll make her feel awesome!
Sometimes inexpensive gifts like books, music and movies are the very best.
Buy her a DVD copy of the movie you two saw on your first date or make her a playlist of songs that make you think of her. You will win major Brownie points!
5. Something Handmade
Make her something! You don’t have to be crafty or artistic. Just make something small and simple that shows that you care.
It could be a card, a Christmas ornament or even just a funny picture. It will be so cute and sweet that you shouldn’t be surprised if she cries!
6. Doing a Chore for Her
If she always complains about doing dishes or folding laundry then do it for her! You may not realize how much this simple act of love and service will mean to her.
All of the jewelry and handbags in the world can’t make up for a thoughtful gesture that takes a load off of her back.
7. Public Declaration
Women love romantic comedies, right? What can you always find in a romantic comedy?
A big public declaration of love! So romantic and sweet! Women love the romance of feeling like a princess… like the kind of woman who a man will make a big deal over.
Let all of the women in the restaurant envy her as you stand up and make a big gesture or have your friends and family over to celebrate just how much you love her!
8. A Surprise
Any of the above gifts will be even better if you simply surprise her. Surprise her with a handmade card, a clean house when she gets home from work or a weekend trip.
Doing it when there’s no occasion will not only help add to the surprise but let her know that you don’t need an event, holiday or birthday to do something nice!
