February 14th is a high-pressure day for men. You have to deliver big time if you want your lady to be happy, but it can be tough to figure out what to get your girlfriend or wife when it seems like she already has everything. Well, I have some fantastic ideas to help you figure out how to make Valentine’s Day a very special evening for both of you. I say book a reservation at her favorite restaurant or plan a romantic meal at home that you cook or order…and clean up yourself. (The cleaning is a very important part of the romance if you choose to spend the evening at home.) And then top the night off with one of these special gifts.
Not a lot of people think of art as a gift, but it can be a very personal and romantic present. Think about what might mean a lot to her. Maybe you can get an antique map of one of your favorite vacation spots framed. Or you could get a professionally painted portrait of her puppy. What does she love and how that can translate to a custom art piece? Once you figure that out, work with an artist to create the piece of her dreams. Trust me, she’ll love all of the thought and effort you put into this one!
Jewelry isn’t a new idea when it comes to romantic gifts, but it’s an option that always delivers. And when it comes to romance, I think a necklace is as good as it gets. (Well, aside from an engagement ring, duh!) I just love the feeling of a man putting a necklace on me. So sensual! Of course, the right necklace depends on your lady’s style. Personally, I love when romantic jewelry gifts can be worn regularly and aren’t just for black tie affairs. So, I’d suggest leaning towards the dainty side. For example, this Yossi Harari
Lilah Smile Bar Pendant Necklace is perfect to wear any day of the week, but still a stunner with its handcrafting and pavé diamonds.
Now, not every woman would appreciate a gift of lingerie. After all, it’s just as much a gift for yourself as it is for her. So, if you don’t think your lady would be into lingerie, why not combine it with something else on this list? That way, there’s definitely something special and romantic for her, as well as for you! If you’re looking for a specific recommendation, you can’t go wrong with Natori. Check out this Sheer Lace Camisole. Super sexy, right? Put this in a box with black panties, a silk robe and maybe even a pair of heels you know she’s had her eye on and you’ll have a very lovely, and very sexy, package for her.
- Private chef
There isn’t a person on this planet who doesn’t love an evening with a private chef catering to their every culinary need. This type of treatment always feels special. Work with the chef to create a menu that’s centered around aphrodisiacs like chocolate, red wine, truffles, saffron and oysters to make the night heavy on romance.
- Night away
Wisk your woman away for a special night out of town, or even just a night in a really plush hotel. I love the idea of setting up a treasure hunt for your girlfriend or wife to follow until she gets to the plane or hotel room. Make sure that part of the treasure hunt is telling her to pack an overnight bag and what kind of clothing to bring. She’s sure to love something that takes this much thought and planning. You’re going to get a million gold stars for this, and probably a special treat in the sack, too!
Happy Valentine’s Day, my men! Good luck making all of your ladies’ dreams come true on February 14th!
