Bienvenue, Monsieur! :)
Yes, THE day has finally come! :P
IF you have just got into your first relationship and in panic, no worries, this post will guide you to what you need to get for her. Or if you just ran out of your gift ideas, then reference this post and hope you find the right one for your lady! :)
To begin with, PLEASE put your best effort in writing SWEET (meaningful, not cheesy or common) words
on the card. Your lady will know how much you love her, however that's not enough :P. Valentine's day is there to embrace and cherish all the moments that you have been together and being grateful to each other (At least this is how my man (I HOPE SO! IF you are READING it ;) ) and I believe :P lol).
And PLEASE do care about gift wrapping. If you cannot gift wrap, that's OK. Most places where you buy gifts, whether it's online or offline will provide you a gift wrapping. So make sure you ask them "Do you do gift wrapping?? o.O" IF they don't, and you need to do it. Then, I am sorry, you will need to physically buy gift wrapping paper and do it by yourself! :P First impressions are very important before seeing what's inside. And I think that this is a manner that you should keep to your lady regardless of how long you have been together :). It doesn't matter how your gift wrapping turns out to be, we know that men usually are not that good at gift wrapping, so that's fine. HOWEVER, still if you are insisting on NOT giftwrapping (OH, NAUGHTY you! :P), then AT LEAST get the prettiest paper gift bag from gift/card shop. And present your gift(s) and card in there.
Women have a sixth sense that can instantly notice how much effort you put in when they see the gift/card, so be aware ;). And if you and your lady's on Cold War era, then try to make Valentine's day as a day of Unification, not leading to another domestic war =_=... You two have a great excuse to be together on the day! :) There's even a saying After a storm comes a calm, so cheer up and look at the bright side!! :D
To let you know at the start, this post will be VERY long, so know that you have a lot of options. That doesn't mean that you need to get only one from the list, you can MIX & MATCH. So you can get either one or a few from the list. The products listed here are the things that I have been using over years / I own, so quality-wise, they are all proven to be excellent :). This doesn't mean that you can just randomly get the item from the list, PLEASE think about what your lady likes, her lifestyle, her grooming table, bathroom and so on first, and then pick.
If you think OOOOH NOOOOOOO to my list, well, I AM SORRY, but THIS IS WHAT WE DO. Most of us do love the ritual of keeping our youth and beauty :P. Welcome to the Women's Reality :P
Well, that's enough intro (LOL), I hope this post will help you with successful Valentine's day shopping for her :). How sweet of you reading this for her :). If you have any questions on the process of preparation, don't hesitate to ask me! Best Luck!!!
