So fella, you’ve just gotten over the drama of buying the right Christmas gift, The Easter egg display at your local Supermarket reminds you that it’s your turn to plan this years Easter vacation and then smack bang in the middle of that, seemingly out of nowhere, comes the not so subtle reminder that Valentines Day is just around the corner and the painful memory that your girl was the only one in her circle of friends that didn’t a gift. You even believed her when she said she didn’t want any flowers.
Cold night on the couch?
It seems harsh to call it a strategy but I thought I’d share a Valentines gift idea with you that will not only cost you very little money but will actually earn you a boatload of brownie points. The items you’ll need for this gift are readily available at your local cheap shop or dollar store.
Step 1 – The Gift – The Jar of Love
This is one of the simplest gifts you will ever give your significant other and yet it will most likely become one of the most treasured.
Start by purchasing from your local cheap shop: One of those multi coloured note blocks, usually $2. Then buy a preserving jar, which is usually not more than $5. All you have to do now is to write short messages of love to your girl and fill the jar.
Your messages don’t all have to be corny. They can be funny, they can be cute or they can be as simple as “I love the way you hug me on a cold night”. Looking for cute messages and quotes on Google won’t help. She’ll know it’s not your thoughts. They just need to to tell her what she means to you.
Step 2 – The Mood -The Music of Love
Some couples don’t already have favourite playlists or CD’s for creating romance in their home. If you fit this category or you’d just like to change it up a bit, why not do a search for a love music playlist on YouTube. Be careful though. This is an easy trap for new players to get in. Some so called love music will make you want to cut your wrists. You want music that will enhance the mood, not kill it. Here’s a playlist that might help get you started.
Step 3 – The Love Game – 20 Questions
Now for the Grand Finale, The piece de resistance that will remind her that you are truly great for her, in spite of all the really dumb things that you do. And let’s face it, if you’re anything like me, there’s lots of evidence for that discussion, but lets stay positive.
The object of the 20 Questions game is simple. Your mission for this game, if you choose to accept it, is to learn as much as you possibly can about the woman you love. You as the host and entertainer are only allowed to ask questions of your partner. And if you mistakenly ask a question that results in the response Yes or No (A closed question) follow up with the question “Why?”
The actual number of questions that you ask will be different for each couple but eventually you’ll get to a point where she’ll probably cry because she’s telling you things she’s always wanted to say but you’ve been too busy to listen. Your only task now is to hug her.
I’ll give you the first question to get you started: “What do you most want me to know about your life?”
Happy Valentines Day Guys.
