Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her
When it comes to buying Valentine’s Day presents for our women, there is one thing that scares all of us: what if I don’t get her the right thing? Thankfully, we at Di-Ve, are here to help.
We fight, we argue, we break up, we make up - our relationships go through a lot of turmoil and ups and downs throughout the year. But there is one day a year when we get to sit down and be thankful for the love we have in our lives, and nothing says, ‘I am grateful to have you in my life’ more than the right present. But what are you going to get this year?
At Di-Ve, have done the legwork for you and have come up with a guide to help those lost sheep out there looking for an ideal gift for their woman. So! Visas a-ready? Amexes a-sparkling? Good. Let’s go!
‘Roses are red’
That is what the infamous poem tells us. What it doesn’t say, however, is that roses are not the only romantic flower in existence. Why not surprise her with orchids, irises or lilacs this Valentine’s Day? Do a bit of research and let her know that there is a reason behind why you got her what you got her. For example, did you know that the orchid is as much a symbol of love as it is of strength and beauty? How about that for the woman who puts up with your shenanigans all year long?
Padlocks are not just useful, silly, they are also a symbol of love!
Think of how many people have affixed lovelocks to numerous bridges and gates around the world to symbolise their undying love for each other. But I’m not talking Yale Locks here, mind you, I’m talking jewellery - Tiffany & Co jewellery. They are the jewellers that have defined our age’s biggests loves: Holly and Paul, Carrie and Big; so why not let it define your own fairytale? Plus, nevermind breakfast at Tiffany’s, you’ll probably be getting breakfast in bed for a whole year after you treat her to one of these!
Getaway while you still can!
Believe it or not, not all women are material and superficial, most would actually love to go away with their lovers on a weekend break somewhere romantic. Book a lovely hotel - make sure it’s got a spa - and spend a weekend with your woman. Relight the old spark that first brought you together and enjoy each other’s company. One tip though, spend the weekend with her, don’t just click away on your BlackBerry or play World of Warcraft on your laptop!
Like Sex, only better... just kidding, boys!
According to some statistics, many women believe that the only thing that is comparable to sex is good, old chocolate. And who can blame them? Don’t we all love to sink our teeth into a Snickers or a Lion? Yum! But be a bit more romantic - and a little less stingy - this V Day and invest in a box of Godiva Chocolate or some luxurious Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles from Charbonnel et Walker. My mouth’s watering just writing about this, maybe you should get a pair of furry handcuffs to go with the chocolates, too. Yum!
