Valentine’s Day is approaching, and as I told you somewhere else, I still have no date on that day!. This year I promised to myself I wouldn’t get cynical. And I don’t know why, but many people keep asking me for advice on what to buy for their partners, as I was some kind of relationship guru LOL. The truth is, I do have some dating experience, and many times I have bought great presents, so yes, one may say I am some sort of adviser when it comes to this topic! Anyway, the fact that I don’t currently have a boyfriend doesn’t mean I cannot think about gifts I would love to buy for a special someone on a special date (or gifts that I would love to receive, if given the chance!). So here are some of my personal suggestions for Valentine’s Day gifts.
First, for couples who like having fun together (and who doesn’t?), I just came across this book called 101 Nights of Grrreat Romance: Secret Sealed Seductions for Fun-Loving Couples, by Laura Corn, and I thought it could be a nice gift for Valentine’s, but not just because for Valentine’s being the most romantic day of the year, the birds singing and the candlelight dinner, butterflies in the stomach and all that crap (ooops, cynicism leak, sorry!). I think it sounds like fun, or maybe it is just me as I can get bored quite easily 😉 The idea is that every reader tears up a page, and keeps it away from their partner, so they can surprise them following the advice. There are different kissing tips, seduction tips, relationship advice… and the best part is, your partner will do the same so they will surprise you as well. The book has 101 pages, so it is meant to last for a whole year if you take one page a week. I like the fact that it has lots of secrets, and that you can share it with your partner so each of you can surprise the other one in a fun way. The book has had many wonderful reviews in Amazon, but it is pretty clear to me that in order to enjoy it, you need to take it with a sense of humor.
Of course, if you enjoyed the first book by Laura Corn, you may want to move forward to the next level! 101 Nights of Grrreat Sex: Secret Sealed Seductions for Fun-Loving Couples is the extra hot version of the previous one. Now there are no surprise chores such as setting a picnic at night or being your wife’s waiter for one evening. Now it is all about the hot stuff! Most reviews agree on the fact that if you are already in a hot relationship, if you are a creative person in the bedroom and have no inhibitions, the book won’t provide you new ideas. Besides, many of the plans designed for the men to perform require long planning and can be very expensive. Personally, I don’t think I would need the book. However, for shy people, for couples who have fallen into the routine, or for inhibited couples who haven’t shared all of their fantasies, 101 Nights of Grrreat Sex may spice up their love lives. Anyway, it is a fun idea for a Valentine’s Day gift.
If you want to buy a more classic Valentine’s Day gift, there is no better choice than jewelry! Trust me: no matter how intellectual she is, every girl would kill for authentic gold or diamonds. I am not a jewelry type of person really, but I swear I would marry any man that would offer me this ring… hahaha I think it is the most amazing ring I have ever seen!!! It is a realistic flower rose ring covered in diamonds. I bet this particular day of the year many men are proposing, as Valentine’s Day is definitely such a romantic time. On the other hand, if you are going to pop the question, there is no need to wait for Valentine’s Day. If the woman really loves you, it will be unforgettably romantic at any time. The thing with rings though, is that they don’t always fit. Some jewelry online stores offer size charts which you can use to calculate the right ring size. In case you are still unsure, you may opt for something else: a bracelet, earrings, a necklace, etc.
As for Valentine’s Day gifts for guys, I already mentioned a few of my ideas in another post. I think if you want to surprise them, you may leave typical romantic presents aside, and go for something he can actually enjoy, such as a collection of DVDs of his favorite movie saga, a musical instrument, tickets to see his favorite team with you (or with you and some friends as well), some cool outfit, etc. If you rather buy something extremely romantic, why not buying some lingerie that you can wear? Trust me, this will really surprise him and get him in the mood! Cooking a nice dinner also works, especially if you make him his favorite dish and add a bottle of an expensive wine!
Anyway, these are a few of my suggestions for Valentine’s Day gifts. On the other hand, no one can choose better than you what your partner will really like and enjoy. If you are still uncertain, just ask him or her! It can still be a surprise: tell them to provide you with a list of ten different suggestions, and then choose one of them. They won’t know what their present will be until they open it, but at least you’ll be sure you won’t make a poor choice.
Have you bought a Valentine’s Day gift already? Are you planning to buy some? What did you think of my suggestions? If given the chance, what would you like to receive in the most romantic day of the year?
