a Romantic Gift for Her
Let's face it.
In many ways women are easy to buy for. Most of us love the traditional
romantic gifts including:
- Soft Toys
But on the other
hand we're difficult to buy for. We know what we like, and we don't
want to settle for less. We pay attention to little things, so we
appreciate it when you give us a gift in our favorite color, or
one that has special meaning.
We love romantic
gestures, like poetry, love letters and romantic music. Men often
consider us gullible when they see us being 'taken in' by another
man's soft words and candlelight dinners. The truth is, we often
know when we're being played, but we can't help responding to the
gesture. We'd like it to be sincere so we convince ourselves that
it is. And occasionally, the manipulative male becomes a victim
of his own techniques and falls for the woman he set out to victimize.
for romantic gestures isn't a sign of weakness. A woman can muster
huge wells of strength and resourcefulness when the situation calls
for it. Some women get addicted to this power and let go of the
so-called feminine side of their natures. Others realize that you
can have both.
So what it's
really about is knowing the woman that you're buying for. You know
you're in trouble when you make generalizations like, "Women love
flowers" or "I'm sure she'd like a box of chocolates for her birthday".
She may prefer some clay for her sculptures or some new gardening
tools. Romance is more about the care that went into choosing the
gift rather than the gift itself.
Here's a story
that illustrates this point:
her husband John often talked about their pasts, including their
experiences as young children. In the course of one particular conversation,
Barbara described a beautiful old-fashioned pencil case her mother
gave her when she first started school. She hadn't thought about
the case in years, but at the time it was one of her most treasured
Six months later,
John was browsing in a specialty store when he came across a pencil
case that matched Barbara's description. He immediately bought it
and presented it to her that night.
delighted with his gift and amazed that John had recalled their
conversation. To her the gift was magical. It felt as if John had
restored a little piece of her childhood.
you clues about what they want continuously in their daily conversation.
It's up to you to pay attention and surprise them later with a well-chosen
gift. This type of thoughtfulness works wonders in a relationship.
