Being in a committed relationship can be stressful around this time of year. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were all scrambling around trying to get the perfect Christmas gift for our ladies, and now before we know it, it’s going to be Valentine’s Day. Whether she’s expecting something or not, as a man, we are all obligated to do something for Valentine’s Day. It could be material or a gesture, but doing nothing is a fast pass to sleeping on the couch. Here are a couple ideas that will keep you off the couch and in good graces with the misses.
Spontaneous Day Trip
It might not be possible on the actual day of Valentines but plan a getaway for the two of you to enjoy some alone time. If you have kids, arrange for a sitter or send them to friends for the night. Some great destinations could be a local natural hot spring, an elegant night downtown, or a simple bottle of wine and cheese on the stars on a nice night. Depending on where you live and what you personally like, there is a trip meant for you.
Cook for Her
Surprise her with breakfast in bed and prepare it all by yourself. She’ll definitely love the effort! Arrange a candle light dinner for two of you and serve her favorite food cooked by you! No matter how badly you’ve cooked she would just appreciate it!
Surprise Shopping Spree
It can be tempting to want to buy clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. because most girls really do love these things. The thing is, us guys don’t always have the best fashion sense or style. To avoid buying something that your lady isn’t going to like, surprise her with an online shopping spree. Tell her how much you are willing to spend and take her to her favorite shopping sites. If you don’t want to do it that way, many fashion sites sell gift cards. You can package it in something creative or develop a small scavenger hunt for her to find it. The more creative you are with it, the more she’ll be impressed by you so don’t hold back
Give Her a Day Off
Sometimes the best gift you could give to a busy lady is a little peace and quiet. Maybe you need to take the kids to the museum for the day or possibly get her a day spa package to go and really let all her worries go. You can still enjoy your time together, but sometimes getting away is the only thing they want.
Gift her a beautiful night dress
Women just love to dress sexy for their husband or boyfriend so gift her a seductive night dress that she’ll love to wear for you! This will ignite the love and romance between you two and make your Valentines never like before!
