If you are smart, you will write it down for later reference for gift giving times, especially ones that are as important as a birthday or anniversary. If you haven’t been really paying attention, then consider the kind of person she is.
What is she passionate about or what kind of things does she collect?
Window-Shop Around Her Room
Just walking around her place will give you a ton of ideas because she picked these items out herself to either decorate with or that she collected as souvenirs from special places around the world.
Sometimes when it isn’t in a girl’s budget to travel, she will buy things that remind her of special places she can only dream of visiting like a picture of the Eiffel Tower in France. Getting her two tickets to Paris would show that you are not only romantic but paying attention to her dreams.
Find a Priceless Gift
Recall what she does in her spare time and offer to do it with her. Doing something special for her doesn’t always come with a price tag.
If she teaches art to inner city youth, offer to go with her for the rest of the month and get more involved in her passions. If you want to really impress her, ask her what all is needed for her classroom, and then go buy it.
Add Value to Her Lifestyle
Think about her career focus and what you could do or give her to make life easier. Maybe she has been eyeing that laptop or iPad, but just doesn’t have it in the budget right now, so never fear buying a practical gift that makes her life easier and helps her spend less time at the office and more time at home with you!
Recall Past Conversations
One easy way to figure out the perfect gift is to look for hints in past conversations.
Think about times she has come home and told you about things that her friends are doing that he wishes she could do, or think about a nice purse that she has been admiring and saving up for.
Maybe she wants a puppy but you have been voting against it. Maybe this is a good time to let her have something that she really wants and if it is something that she knows you have said no to in the past, it will be a sure fire way to melt her heart even more because you are doing what LOVE IS – and that is putting someone else’s feelings before yours.
You can always tell her things that your friend did for his girlfriend and see how she responds. Girls love to hear what other couples are going through and give her 2 cents, so that would be a great way to find out without tipping your hat.
A Girl’s Best Friend
If all else fails, honey, diamonds will always be a girl’s best friend! Just make sure you don’t put them in a box that looks like an engagement ring if you aren’t even thinking about marriage yet because that will get her all excited for nothing, and get the both of you frustrated when she shows the obvious disappointment when she finds those beautiful diamond studs.
