How to avoid a Valentine's Day present dilemma

Posted on: January 28, 2013 16:58:48

How to avoid a ValentineAs February 14th looms, the difficult decision of what to buy your new partner may be creeping ever closer.

Like the present-buying etiquette of Christmas Day, what you buy for a loved one, or someone you hope to woo, can be tricky to say the least.

Get it right men and it could be your lucky day, but get it wrong and it could lead to a very disappointed other half and a ready meal for one for you.

One of the first things that needs to be taken into consideration when getting something for a special someone is how long you have been going out.

If things are still relatively new and nothing is yet official, striking the right tone has never been more important.

It can be all too easy to lose sight of what the day actually means and frivolously spend too much on grand gestures such as jewellery or expensive meals in the vain hope of impressing your date.

While of course most girls will be flattered by such generous presents, money can't buy you everything. So if you can't afford it, or the relationship is still in its infancy, perhaps focus on something more unique and heartfelt to really impress.

Instead of the predictable bouquet of roses, oversized teddy or box of chocolates - although that isn't to say a girl wouldn't love those - why not try to think of something that breaks the norm.

A personalised gift, or even one you have made, can show there has been thought and time put into it, and proves to them you know what they like.

During the early days it is always best to steer clear of the more intimate kind of gifts as well.

Toys, lingerie or anything that could suggest you are after something in return that night could go down like a lead balloon if the relationship isn't yet at that stage.

According to a survey by Passionista, a massive 68 per cent of women said they wouldn't appreciate their man buying them sexy underwear, Female First reports.

Sandra Dyke, a consultant at the company, said: "The most important thing to remember is that if she doesn't own sexy lingerie, she doesn't want to wear it. So don't buy it as a gift for her. Hopefully she will buy it as a gift for you."
