Certain traditions have survived through the centuries for a reason – they work. The tradition of showering that special someone with romantic presents, flowers, chocolates, cards – Clichés yes, but such wonderfully magical clichés!
A magical present? It’s one that says that you know her, that you value her enough and that you want to be with her.
A present can say a lot of things that you may be shy to verbalize in person. Giving a friend that you’ve only started sharing sweet-nothings with, a box of chocolates labelled kisses – corny ya, but a clear cute message 🙂
A present lets her know that you care for her more than she knows. Think of something she may have mentioned only in passing, that may have caught her fancy, or a colour she’s been leaning towards lately.
It can say that you are willing to go the extra mile to find out what she’s really into these days – even using tech to your rescue. You could find the gourmet teas from her Pinterest board, or that pendant from her Amazon wish list.
A book she’ll love tells her that you’re confident you know her taste. Or, a present can even subtly declare that you are now officially together – think matching bracelets or phone covers.
Present – Even When You’re Not
Presents that she will actually end up using will remind her of you, even in your absence.
Imagine the power of gifting a luxurious bath range. You will be on her mind every single morning when she’s getting ready.
Or the pillow you personalized with your picture or message, that she ends up cuddling with every night in bed.
Or a new perfume that you introduce her to. That particular fragrance will remind her of you even years later. Guaranteed 🙂
And that’s the thing with presents – they can be super personal in a really intimate way, and yet not get uncomfortable.
The Frills Add to the Romance
Now the point with presents from your lover is that you end up saving everything it comes with – the ribbons, the glittery hearts, the satiny flowers!
The pretty packing, the romantic card and the hand-written love note will survive in her drawer long after the perfume has been used up 🙂
What adds to the romance is the intimate, memorable setting while giving the present.
And there’s the magic of a lovingly selected present – it can say that you are the best lover ever!
