Often times it can be daunting to figure out what gift to give someone. On Valentine's Day it can be very intimidating. How are you suppose to come up with a gift that will represent your love for someone? How can a gift ever express it enough or be enough? Yet we try every year and hope with fingers crossed that it will be just perfect.
In a recent survey of women concerning Valentine's Day gifts most said they just want to feel appreciated. Men say they would like the same. So put it in perspective that the gift should portray appreciation and you can better choose your gift.
For women that could mean a romantic dinner, jewelry representing love such as a heart necklace, and even a play list of songs that would represent your journey of love together. The gift should say "I love you, I appreciate you, and I get you" said one survey responder.
Don't be pulled toward highly decorated last minute gifts seen at retailers hoping to grab your money at the benefit of fancy wrappings. What is inside does matter. It would be better to show you actually spent time to get your gift together such as pre-purchased movie tickets or a dinner reservation. It shows it wasn't a last minute thought.
For men, it could mean tickets to a sporting event later in the week, a certificate for a round of golf, or anything that shows you know how they like to play - afterall you are the one that can still understand the man you love has a boy's heart when it comes to games and fun!
Don't forget the music either. A request by a local DJ to play "your song" while you enjoy dinner together at home or a new download of love songs that mark your relationship through the years. The music will last long after the meal is over, the movie has ended, and the day is over. The music will bring back the feelings of years past, rekindle the butterfly in the stomach, and be remembered next week and next month when played again. Nothing can say "I love you" like music and beautiful lyrics. Either choose one you know or perhaps you might want to give a try at writing your own... that will for sure be remembered days ahead and no matter what her friends received - a song just for her, written by you, is definitely a winner. Even if it never wins a Grammy!
