Chocolate + flowers + fancy dinner + a movie = Valentine's Day.
That's typically the Valentine's Day equation, am I right? We seem to be in a Valentine's Day rut. Not to mention...what do we get for the guys?! (Right ladies?!)
A lot of us are lost on what to do for our significant other on the one day of the year that we could really spoil them and show them just how much they mean to us.
Why does gift giving have to be so hard in the first place???
The beauty of this is, gift giving is actually really simple. We're just overthinking all of this! Then it comes down to the day, and we're left empty handed for all the thought we put into it.
But you don't want to leave your significant other with a gift they won't use, or worse, tries to return for something else that they actually like! Yikes!
It all starts with thoughtful and intentional gift giving. Here are a few things to consider that will help you to pick out the perfect gift that they will love!
1. What are their hobbies?
Fishing, golfing, shopping, video games, hiking, woodworking, painting, cooking, etc. They've talked about their favorite things enough by now (or shown how they spend their time) for you to know some of the things they really love to do. This is a great time to get involved a little!
Having some shared interests is nice. At the very least, you'll finally understand some of what they're talking about. Have them teach you a new skill, spend some time together, and then switch! Now it's your turn to teach them some of your favorite things!
You know what they love! Pick something they love and marry it with something you love! Which leads us to number 2.
2. Can you give them a memory?
