Gift right....

Valentine Day. It is just a few days away. This is when those in stable relationships reaffirm and express their love. The singles watch the day pass all grumpy as they watch the roses,cards and chocolate exchange.


 Women absolutely love the surprises they receive on Valentine’s day while men on the other hand are typically only surprised to wake up realizing it is a holiday and should have added that on the reminder list in their phones with the big red hearts to remind them. Lest they get the nasty mean stares from their ladies. 


Lovers take a chance to go on exotic trips, host exotic diners thus marking this day in style. A lot of gift exchanging is done all with love. You could, of course, do chocolates. Or roses. Or just stick around home and reflect on each others love milestone with a simple candlelit diner and a simple card!


Last year a friend received a gift well wrapped. It was a set of cufflinks. They were not that classy but they were something. It was Valentine anyway. He smiled but it was not a genuine one. Days later the girlfriend was up on his neck asking why he did not wear the set of cufflinks with his shirts. Men are made of excuses and this was just the perfect time an excuse would resurface.


The cufflinks were made in a shape of a teddy bear with a smile on them. To make the matter worse, they were pink in color with a slashing white color. No man would walk to the bar to meet his boys with pink teddy bear cufflinks . It would be a total joke to crack the boys in the lounge. It would be like missing that favourite rugby game with the aim to cook diner and baby sit rather than hang with the boys.



Men however never go wrong on gifts on any season. All a lady would want is perfume,make up,chocolate and sexy lingerie just to mention a few. They never have much to think about. 



A good gift shows that you know your man or your lady right. The mutual giving deed this Valentine speaks volumes to partners.The trick is to buy something that each of you will always have and that which will make you think fondly of each other even when miles apart. Every time you look at your gift it should remind you constantly of that special moment with him/her.



For the ladies,don't get your man what you would want him to get you - get him something that speaks volumes about his personality. 



This Valentine and every other day let your man know he is loved and that you know him best. Your man brags to his friends that you are one in a million and that he would not trade you for anything.Prove that by gifting him/her right.


 Remember this day is not just for the couples. You could choose to break the tradition approach with flowers, cards and chocolates and show love to those people whom you truly love. You could give that call to your dad and tell him you miss and love him, they don't get that often from you. You could spoil your mother on that lunch treat or even cruise along with the girls or boys for a road trip since the day falls on a weekend. Or better yet treat yourself to that spa moment!Offer yourself the same thing you give to all of the loved ones in your life, and make the effort to show yourself a little love!



From me.... Have a Happy Valentine! Much Love!
