It is a wonderful feeling and a great joy to give and to receive gifts because a gift is a symbol of appreciation and love for someone special. Some people stick to tried out gifts, especially on big days like birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine’s day, which is perfectly fine since, for some, the classic will always do the trick. On the other hand, some people find it hard, even overwhelming, to pick the perfect gift since they aim for more creative and unique presents that will truly represent their love and devotion. If you have an important date coming your way, here are a few great ideas that will inspire you to get your loved one the perfect gift they deserve.
Organize a day trip
It doesn’t have to be a spectacular destination since a single day spent away from usual daily turmoils will be more than enough. Taking a walk in nature outside of the city or visiting a nearby town that you’ve never been to before will make this day special and memorable.
Create a spa experience at your home
Invite your darling for a relaxing day at the spa and prepare yourself for some serious work, because being a masseuse is not easy. Do your homework, get massage oils and look for tutorials on the internet to learn the basics. Light candles, fill the room with lovely and calming scents and make a playlist of relaxing and soothing music.
Get her a scarf
Buying clothes for women is always tricky since it is almost impossible to pick the right style, size, and colour at the same time. No such problems with scarfs, since they can always match well with some clothing item. Look for unique and creative scarfs with interesting prints, quotes or film references that will reflect her personality and taste.
Be creative with your photos
Pick photos of the two of you and make a collage. Make sure to include photos from the very beginning and try to arrange them chronologically. If that doesn’t work, arrange them any way you like it, only make sure to find a lovely weathered wood frame. A gift like that will have a special place on a wall as well as in her heart.
There must be something that she loves and considers as a cult movie or a band. Appreciate her taste in cinema or art by getting her a vintage poster. There is plenty of vintage posters on the internet, only make sure to pick the one that will complement the style of her home. Frame the poster and hang it on the wall together.
Chunky knit blanket
These blankets are extremely popular for a reason. Not only they are warm and soft, but they look fabulous and stand as a great accessory. Girls are crazy about them. Having a quiet night in front of the TV, covered with this blanket will make her smile when thinking of you.
Handmade and stylish jewellery box
Again, one more thing that all women love and need. No matter how much jewellery a girl has, there is always room for more. The jewellery box is a great gift since it will be of great use and rest assured it will be a focal point in her bedroom.
Perfume is always a good idea
Same as with jewellery, when it comes to perfumes, there is always room for one more. If in doubt which scents she likes, sneak into her bathroom and smell her older perfumes. Look for a common component and buy something that resembles it. Or, you can always buy the one that you like.
Paris is the best idea
If you wish to step up this gift-giving game, know that a romantic holiday or even a long weekend at a hot destination is always the best possible gift. Now, if you live in Australia, Paris may not be the most economical destination, but you can take her to some other bucket-list place in your hemisphere.
The soft and smooth touch of silk on a skin is something that every woman likes. Even if she is the type of girl who sleeps in a soft t-shirt or cotton pyjama, it is a glamorous item that is always good to have in the closet. There is nothing as comfortable and more feminine than silk nightgown.
Pursuit her passion with her
Whether she is into photography, antiques or cooking, get involved and take her to an exhibition or take a course together. If she is more of a green thumb, take her to an event like Southern Bloom Festival where every florist in Perth offers extraordinary bouquets of local wildflowers and native plants. Being a part of what she enjoys the most is a precious gift.
Organize a picnic
If she is an outdoor person and if weather conditions are fine, she will enjoy a relaxing time in nature. Bring some tasty food and a bottle of expensive wine. Get her silicone wine glasses and enjoy sipping wine in nature. Keep in mind that the glasses are unbreakable and heat resistant. Another great gift for nature-loving people.
Stylish makeup mirror
Women enjoy the ritual of putting the makeup on. A sure way to make this ritual more pleasant is to get her a magnifying makeup mirror with flattering led lights. It will make her feel like the fairest of them all, which is a fabulous gift for every woman.
Be generous and creative since finding and giving a perfect gift is rewarding for both of you. Keep in mind that small tokens of appreciation, love, and gratitude, even when it is not their birthday can mean a lot as they will put a smile on a face of your loved one, while they will keep the flame alive. Still, the most precious gifts are the ones that you cannot buy – such as love, support, honesty and being there for someone you love.
