Valentine’s Gifts for Your Sweetheart
Finding the right Valentine's Day gift is probably the most difficult shopping experience in any man's life. It isn't like buying a birthday gift -- choosing a gift for this special occasion won't just show your affection toward her, but your degree of commitment as well.
The simplest gifts that you can get your girlfriend for Valentine's Day are flowers, chocolates and teddy bears. And these are fine because it is possible to make a somewhat generic gift more personal.
This may seem like a cop-out gift, but it doesn't have to be. Flowers can say a million words. Roses are the traditional gift given on Valentines Day, but they're certain to be well-received any time of year. But before you buy roses, know what message you're sending. So you can impress her with your knowledge and high culture by telling her what they mean -- and in case you get one with the wrong message; and she does know what it means.
Here are the different meanings of rose colors
Roses- The Meaning of Each Color
Make sure you are sending the right message when you select roses for someone, else he or she will get the wrong message!
||Love, beauty, courage and respect
||Purity and innocence, silence or secrecy, also reverence and humility
||Appreciation,” Thank you”, grace, perfect happiness, and admiration
||Joy, gladness, friendship, delight, the promise of a new beginning
||Desire, and enthusiasm
|Red and White
||Given together, these signify unity.
||A symbol of purity and loveliness
||Symbolic of girlhood
||Signifies "Love at first sight".
||Express one thing with their passionate color: Desire.
speak of appreciation, gratitude, and also sympathy
Put two or more colors of roses together, and a new rose meaning arises:
|White Roses + Yellow Roses
||A symbol of harmony.
|Red Roses + Yellow Roses
||A message of happiness and celebration
|Red Roses + White Roses
||An indication of bonding and harmony.
Women also love to keep their flowers as a sentimental item, so you can have a bouquet of roses delivered to her, and then give her a beautiful vase, so that she can keep her flowers for a long-time once she dries them (women know how to dry their flowers, so don't even ask).
A teddy bear is always a safe option, but you may want to get her this combined with chocolates or flowers, so that she gets a nice gift that she can enjoy right away, and have something to cuddle with while you're not around. This is a great and original Valentine's Day gift idea that will remind your sweetie of your thoughtfulness long after Valentine's Day is over. The Valentine Teddy Bear is cute, plush, and cuddly! This little guy will warm the heart of the one you love. Sent the Valentine Teddy Bear to her to show how much you care this Valentines Day.
A woman always appreciates a box of her favorite chocolates, so if you do opt for these, get her a flavor you know she likes and would appreciate. Chocolate makes a great gift for any occasion and it’s will put a smile on any chocolate lovers face.
If you know that she has a penchant for fine wine, and then gets her a bottle of her favorite stuff. From Amaretto to Zinfandel, there's sure to be a drink she prefers -- and you can't go wrong with a bottle of French wine.
These are more generic gifts that are perfect for newer couples, when you're really at a loss for what to get her, or if you know she really just appreciates chocolates or flowers.
You can make these even more special by having them delivered to her at work (and make all her co-workers jealous) or send her twelve single roses all day, until she can make a bouquet herself.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you!!!!
