Valentines Day – we all know it’s just a stupid fake occasion made up by card companies to get us to spend our hard earned dosh but the fact is we still care about it and we still like to receive at least a card from our loved one.
As someone who’s partner has forgotten Valentines Day in the past I can tell you that I was absolutely bloody furious! Not so much because I care about Valentines Day but more that he’d been walking round town the day before through shops which were no doubt overflowing with Valentines crap and still he was totally oblivious, still he hadn’t thought of me for a second. Anyway enough about that he’s dead now…..only joking! It was Andrew (for those of you who know him) and I let him live after a promise that it would NEVER happen again.
So guys! I know what you’re thinking, ‘oh we never get each other anything’ ‘she said not to bother…’. She may have said not to bother, you might well have not bothered with anything more than a card for years and years but i’m telling you that there isn’t a woman in this world who won’t be absolutely over the moon with a surprise gift. Who doesn’t want a surprise gift? It shows you thought of her, it shows you appreciate her and she deserves it, so just get her a bloody gift ok?
Now we’re agreed that you should get her a gift lets get on to the hard bit, what should you buy her and how much should you spend? In my opinion it doesn’t matter what you spend, any gift however small will be a nice surprise. However below I have done a little foolproof guide to perfect presents of varying prices that I believe any woman would be very happy with. I would be totally happy with any of these gifts (hint hint) and if i’m wrong and she doesn’t like it, just keep the receipt – you still get the brownie points for trying!
