Flowers, chocolates, maybe a bottle of wine – do all of the usual presents you surprise your girlfriend with start to sound a little repetitive? Chances are if you’re feeling bored with the same-old gift ideas, then your girlfriend is too.
A gift doesn’t need to be for a special occasion. One of the most romantic things a man can do is surprise their partner for no other reason than to say: ‘I love you’. With this in mind, if you’re looking to show you girlfriend just how much you care, here are four unique gift ideas that are sure to make her smile.
1. An experience
The most memorable gifts are the ones that can be shared. Instead of buying a bouquet of flowers, why not tick something off your partner’s bucket list. Sky diving, wine tasting, ballroom dancing – everyone is bound to have a fun and exciting experience they have always wanted to try. Find out what that is for your loved one and organise their ultimate day as a surprise.
A nice pair of pyjamas is one of those purchases that most girls want but often can’t justify spending the money on. Don’t be tempted to go for a seductive looking corset that she will only wear once. Opt for good quality satin pyjamas that are both attractive and comfortable.
This is a present that shows how much you care about your girlfriend’s comfort, a quality that’s always sure to impress.
3. A pot plant
A unique spin on the traditional flowers that won’t shrivel and die. This is a great project for any couples that live together and isn’t only for people who have a backyard. If you and your girlfriend enjoy cooking, a herb garden is also a lovely idea that fills the house with aromatic smells.
4. Cook her a special meal
This is a particularly good surprise if your partner is usually the one who does the cooking. If you’re really looking to impress her, then it’s time to work your magic in the kitchen.
Don’t try to get too gourmet and ruin the surprise by burning down the kitchen. Have a look online for tried and tested recipes that have a step-by-step process or video. Don’t scrimp on the finer details either – if you have gone to the effort of cooking, be sure to set the table and light a few candles for ambience.
