Having been involved in several long-term relationships, Chris has developed a firm insight into what works and what doesn't.


Have a Special Day Coming Up?

Does your significant other have a birthday coming up? Maybe she just received a job promotion at work and you want to show her how happy you are that her hard work has been rewarded. Perhaps you just want to find that perfect Christmas gift and are looking for ideas. Whatever the occasion, it can be a challenge trying to find that special gift that she will treasure.

When setting out on your shopping journey, the first question that often crosses a man's mind is practical or impractical. This is the easy part, because few women really want a household appliance for their birthday. Even if she says a new vacuum cleaner would be alright, what she really wants is something that will make her feel special and loved. What follows are a few suggestions to put a smile on her face and not break the bank in the process.

1. Roses and a Card

It may sound cliché, but a dozen roses and an appropriate card can say a lot about what she means to you. What better way for the love of your life to begin her special day with a bouquet of red roses? Be sure to add a personalized message in the card and your significant other will begin her day with a smile upon her face.

2. A Personal Coupon Book

Yes, that is correct. Why not give here a book of coupons that she can redeem at her discretion? These coupons could include anything from breakfast in bed to a romantic massage and anything in between. Running a household can be a stress filled task and she will love the oppurtunity to have some down time all for herself. Perhaps she would really enjoy having dinner prepared for her while she thumbed through the television channels, followed by a back and shoulder massage as she watched that movie that caught her attention.

3. A Day Spa or Tanning sessions

Lets face it, women love to look and feel good and we love it when they do. Many women love to have their hair and nails done, maybe get a nice tan to compliment the whole look, but often feel there are more important things to spend the money on. So why not let them feel pampered guilt free? Give her the oppurtunity to get that new hair style that she has been dreaming of, remember that even the strongest woman wants to feel like a woman.

4. Jewelry

That is right, jewelry can be a great gift to give that special lady. Whether it is a nice necklace and pendant, a pretty charm bracelet or a diamond ring, it is sure to have her smiling. Jewelry is just the type of sentimental gift that women will wear and treasure forever.

The important thing to remember when it comes to jewelry is to find something that fits her personality and style. More expensive does not always mean better, you do not need to buy the Hope diamond, just something that she will be proud to wear and show off to her friends.


5. Take Her on a Romantic Weekend Getaway

Most of us are not in a position to be able to run off to the French Riviera with our significant other, but there are other options. Book a room in a nearby city for the weekend, someplace romantic where the two of you will be able to spend quality time together. Leave the cell phones and laptops behind and make the weekend all about loving each other. Enjoy some room service and a romantic movie together. It is not necessary to visit a romantic destination in order to find romance.

6. A Day of Nothing

Yes, you read that right. A day of doing absolutely nothing might be just what she wants. So many times, a woman's schedule is full. Between her job, maintaining the household, watching the kids and running errands, she may not have time for herself. So why not give her a day all to herself. Take care of the household chores and prepare a nice dinner while she relaxes. I promise you she will love it.

It's the Thought that Counts

The old saying is true, what the lady in your life wants most of all is to know how much she means to you. Put a little thought and effort into planning that special occasion and give her something that money can never buy, memories and security. Show her that she is the only one you will ever love and desire, make her feel good about herself and you will be successful in making her smile.
