Top 14 gifts for February 14

What to give for Valentine’s Day? Every year, thousands and millions of such requests are sent to space and to Google. The statistics is inexorable: for eleven months of the year, men and women (most often men, of course) can call Valentine’s Day a stupid Western tradition, a great way for sellers to cash in on near-by buyers, commemoration of an unknown priest. Equally popular is the phrase that lovers do not need special holidays once a year, and you can and should pamper your loved ones regardless of the date on the calendar. It’s like that. But here’s an amazing thing: around the end of January, literally all the guys begin to think about what they can give the girl on February 14th.

There are special requirements for the present: it must certainly be original and romantic. And here many gentlemen come to a standstill: how to choose a good present for your beloved? What to stop from all the variety that the souvenir industry pleases us with? There is something to think about.

General principles for choosing a gift
It was believed that men are much more difficult to choose gifts than girls. Perhaps you will agree with this. Most likely, this is due to less demanding representatives of the stronger sex. Well, in fact, what is usually given to men? Traditional “men’s” sets, which may include shaving products, other cosmetics, underwear, a belt or cufflinks. Car enthusiasts can certainly be presented with some cool things for the car. “Hand” men – all kinds of tools. Well, headphones, a speaker or a fitness tracker seem to be slowly becoming a universal gift for gentlemen today, regardless of their age and hobbies. Give your beloved something of the above – and the thing is in the hat: he will be happy, happy and will carry you in his arms (unless, of course, he is still wearing it). Is there such a universal gift list for a woman? Oh, how can you even ask such a question!

That is why before deciding what to give a girl on Valentine’s Day, decide on the answers to other questions.

Why are you making a present. Perhaps why – this is the most important. Think clearly what is your goal? Do you want to cheer your beloved, emphasize the romance of your relationship, have you decided to ask her about marriage, or have you realized that it is time to pamper her? Choose a gift depending on your purpose.
What do you want to invest in the present. Think, are you ready to surprise your beloved with a product that you have made with your own hands? Make a cake, write love notes, make an individual Valentine? If so, then you will have to invest in the present not only time and money, but also your own abilities. Of course, a self-made valentine will be appreciated much more than a postcard with printed words bought in an underpass. But at the same time, you don’t have to kill yourself if you don’t have time or you simply don’t know how to do anything with your hands. Just immediately decide for yourself whether you need it or not. And yet … even the little thing that you make yourself will be a pleasant surprise for your sweetheart and will be remembered for a long time.
Who are you giving the surprise to? How many women – so many options for gifts, and reactions to them. Clearly imagine the image of the person whom you will congratulate. Her age, hobbies, dress style, status of your relationship. It is clear that the luminous bear will not be the best gift for the business woman with whom you have been associated for twenty years of marriage, and the gold ring can cause, in your opinion, the emotions of the girl whom you have been dating for two weeks.
Is the girl ready to accept “banal” gifts. It was not in vain that we took the word “banal” in quotation marks. In another way, they can be called traditional, or classic. So, a gift for February 14 to a girl can consist of red roses, valentines, chocolates, jewelry – collect this whole set or limit yourself to just a few of its components. Some girls, however, smile on duty at such a gift and think that you are not a supporter of original ideas. For others, such a “romantic classic” will please: there are other holidays for other gifts. Your task is to find out or understand what type your girlfriend is.
How much do you expect. It is clear that scrambled eggs in the shape of a heart and flying in a balloon are gifts from different price categories. Initially, decide for yourself how much you are willing to spend on a gift. Do not be afraid to cheapen: we do not consider the case when a girl with you, as they say, because of money. And in all other situations, your feelings are much more important: how you present a surprise, what words you say and how you behave. And then, even for a relatively small amount, you can buy a very good gift. You just need to take care of this in advance and spend time searching.
If you have decided on a strategy, you can consider yourself a winner. The main thing you have done.
