Listen up boys, I am about to make your lives a lot easier. Most girls say that they hate Valentine’s Day, but that is a lie. No girl hates receiving flowers or being pampered, regardless of the occasion. No matter how many times women say it is a ridiculous holiday and that we don’t want anything, we are lying. The truth is, women want to feel wanted, they want to be heard and they want to feel loved. By giving your wife or girlfriend these three things, your loved one will have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
So men, if you haven’t gotten anything for your lady, read this article carefully. The following is a list of a variety of things women want. Some cost money while others are free. Most women don’t care about how much money you spend, but do care about how much time and effort you put into her happiness. Designer bags and diamonds are awesome, but if you are not showing her love, they don’t mean anything. Sometimes being cliché is acceptable, and on Valentine’s Day it is. Some traditional Valentine gifts are not cheesy but classic. However, for those men who want to think outside the box and truly impress their lady, there are some amazing and creative ideas for you.
Today is a day for celebrating each individual’s love and it is an amazing way of reconnecting with your special someone. Make sure to make your woman feel special and the following ten ideas are guaranteed to make her happy. Today is the perfect day to spoil her with love, tell her how much she means to you and maybe add a few surprises along the way!
As cliché as it might sound, women really do want flowers on Valentine’s Day. Women love opening the door to a stunning bouquet of flowers. It’s the only time of the year where we expect them, so sometimes not getting flowers turns out to be a disappointment. Many men think that they need to buy their woman a dozen long-stemmed roses. Although that is beautiful, it is also pricey and we don’t want you to go beyond your means for flowers. One Valentine’s Day, I received a single red rose from a boyfriend. He told me that he went to numerous florists to find one as beautiful as me, and it was one of the most romantic moments of my life. Romance does not need to cost a lot, as long as it comes from your heart.
9. Re-Enacting Your First Date
The first date is usually the most memorable date the two of you will ever share. Bring your loved one back to where it all began. You can even call ahead of time to reserve the exact table the two of you sat at on that wonderful evening. This is a brilliant and nostalgic date idea that can become a tradition. Every year on Valentine’s Day, you can bring your special someone to different, meaningful and monumental locations that are unique to your relationship. For example, the first place the two of you exchanged “I love you,” or the place where you shared your first kiss. This is a creative and touching way to show your lady how much they mean to you.
8. Her Perfect Night In
Every girl has a list of favorite actresses and chick flicks that guys just do not understand. Set up a movie night at your place, including her favorite snacks and films. Try and find a movie that she has never seen, or that she hasn’t seen in a long time. Maybe she has been hinting that she hasn’t watched Sex and the City in a while; rent the series and binge watch it with her. Remember, you are trying to make this night special for her, so watch the chick flick or whatever it is that makes your girl happy and trust me, you will be happy in return.
7. Spa Day
Most women adore being pampered and there is no better place to do that than at a spa. Treat your lady to couples massages, mud baths and sexy steams and allow her to let go of all her worries. When your woman is relaxed, she tends to be happier and nicer, and by relieving her stress and clearing her mind you are able to reconnect with your special someone. If going to a spa is too pricey, you can fake it at home; light scented candles throughout the room and give her a passionate massage. You can also do facial masks together and go clean yourselves off in a steaming bathtub! This is an economic, sexy alternate solution for getting your girl to relax.
6. Cleaning for Her
When she comes home, have her place cleaned to perfection. You can either do it yourself or hire someone to clean it for you. This is a small gesture that will go a long way with your girl. You can even go do her groceries for her and have her come home to a clean place and full fridge. This will help your woman in so many ways, and the time and effort put into it will be well received.
A full fridge and clean place will definitely please her, and in return you may get lucky and be able to mess the place up a little!
5. Turning Your Phone Off
Many men are consumed by their job and bring their work home with them. This is the furthest thing from romance. If your girl is always complaining about you not paying any attention to her, this is a great way of spoiling her with your time, which is all she really wants. Ladies, this advice goes for you, too. Put Instagram and Twitter away for a few hours and connect as a couple. Although this seems like such an easy thing to do, it’s really more difficult than it seems, and this simple gesture can do wonders for the two of you as a couple.
4. Cooking For Her
Instead of taking her out, cook her a romantic meal. In most cases, though not all, women are known to be the ones constantly slaving away in the kitchen. By cooking her one of her favorite meals, it will show her that you are not only romantic, but that you listen and pay attention to what she likes. Women like to know they are being heard and men tend to be forgetful, so this is a great way of saying “I listen to you,” and it is very sensual. There’s nothing sexier than a man who can cook, why not be that man?
3. Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend
Here is the deal with girls, we love things that sparkle, and nothing sparkles more than diamonds! However, they are quite expensive, but that does not mean you can’t treat your woman to beautiful jewelry. Women love jewelry, especially something that has meaning behind it. It doesn’t need to be anything outrageous because when it comes to jewelry, sometimes simplicity equals elegance. Something else you can do is refurbish one of her old pieces that she no longer wears into something she will. Take one of her childhood earrings and have them made into a stunning ring that show your love.
2. Sharing a New Experience
It is really important for couples to share experiences together. Doing something out of the ordinary on Valentine’s Day is special because it is something she will never expect. Go skydiving, or take a dance or cooking class together, really anything that will make you and your loved one step out of your comfort zones. Sharing a new experience together is a great way of bonding with your significant other. Also, getting your adrenaline going is like a natural high, so by doing something high intensity, the two of you will be in a euphoric and loving state, making for incredible love making.
1. To be Loved
Whether they admit it or not, women just want to be loved on Valentine’s Day. Single women hope to have a date on that day and women in relationships are grateful to have someone. The best thing you can do does not cost anything: just tell her how much you love her and let her know what she means to you. No gift in the world can compare to the feeling a woman gets from knowing how her man really feels about her. Sometimes it’s hard to say everything you want to say, so you can write her a letter. This is a classy and sentimental way of declaring your love. However, most men find it difficult to put into words how they feel about their woman, so if that is a case, find a song or a poem that explains how you feel, and incorporate that into your evening.
