Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Women
Advantages: special day to celebrate love and spending time with loved ones.
I'm always single when it comes to valentine's day but no worries for me I know one day I will have a special partner to celebrate every year with. For now I just leave the special day to spend with family and close people in my life. When I do find someone special here are some things/ ways I would love to spend my Valentine's Days. I think Valentine's is a lovely celebration and not every day you can afford to spoil your partner, family or friends so it's good that there is a day dedicated to celebrating loved ones.
Firstly for me what would be special is a surprise that I didn't see coming. I love surprises and feel that if I had a partner I would want them to be constantly be surprising me ever Valentine's. Surprises don't have to come in big packages for me just anything with a little thought put into it and not the same as the year before would put a smile on my face.
Some of the surprises that would make my day would be:
A surprise dinner.
A classic surprise dinner would be lovely but not at your cheap everyday restaurants but at somewhere classy or maybe somewhere nice in another town. Some nice restaurants I've heard of like L'Atelier de JoŽl Robuchon, Gauthier Soho and Le Gavroche just somewhere fancy that I can dress up and feel special. I think as a dinner I would even love a home cooked special dinner with candles and the works as I think that would be a special way to celebrate.
A weekend away
A weekend away somewhere nice like Italy or France or somewhere romantic would be a lovely treat for Valentine's Day. I like seeing attractions and stuff in different places so somewhere with a lot of attractions would be wonderful for me.
I always think the traditional celebrations of Valentine's Day are important to be a part of your day. I personally am not into flowers but many women love them so make sure you get her favourite or if she doesn't have one get some pretty ones or some to match her personality. I would much rather a gift than flowers. Something like a new bracelet or chain or a nice piece of jewellery. Think about interests when buying gifts because it's alrite buying something nice but think more about what the women you are buying for has a passion for. If she's a cook a new recipe book would be nice, if she's a reader the latest best seller would be a nice thought, if she like making clothes in her spare time maybe a new sewing machine or materials would be a good thought. It's alrite thinking to buy the traditional gifts but it may be better to think of interests over traditions. I think a gift should always accompany a day out because I don't personally think a gift is enough for Valentine's and something always should follow it. It also makes a good back-u if you fail with the gift choice :)
I don't think Valentine's day always has to be romantic it's just about spending time together I think and because I'm the adventurous type I would love to be taken out to do something adventurous for Valentine's day. I'd love to go rock climbing, sky diving, scuba diving or hot air ballooning or something along those lines as I think it would be fun.
I think with Valentine's Day every women is different and you have to think personally of something that she would want rather than what women want in general. It can be easy to stereotype and think all women want a romantic day or a big fuss but I think with most women they want something thought out, special and means something to them or your relationship personally. The best way to keep Valentine's Special is to keep it original and always give the loved women in your life something knew to brag about. Yes brag most people I know always show off about their Valentine's Day treats so give them something extra special to talk about to friends.
I think in general you should always treat a female like she is special and valentines day should be every day of the year but you can't always afford to spoil a special female in you life so it's just good that there is a valentines day to celebrate love and the best thing to to is enjoy it even if you are just spending the day cuddled up on the sofa. It's not always about what you do but who you are spending it with.
