Top Five Valentine’s Day Gifts

What do women really want for Valentine’s Day? Now that is a question I bet every man wishes he knew the answer to.
Most men run to the store and grab the first thing they see. Price really isn’t an issue. It is a fact that men spend almost twice as much on Valentine’s gifts as women. So what is the deal? Are our guys spending their money wisely or are they just buying a gift because they need to get something for the woman in their life.
Men here are the list of the top five gifts for women on Valentines. So check it out and see if you agree.

FLOWERS All women love flowers and so you can’t go wrong with this one. A plant is also included in this idea. Add a little note or card. A plant is extra fun because it last longer.

JEWELRY Take your time and think about what kind of jewelry she wears. If she does not have pierced ears, don’t buy pierced ear rings. Does she like classical type jewelry such as a strand of pearls or is she more of the trendy type. Just because it looks good on the sales lady does not mean it will look good on her.

GIFT CERTIFICATES How about a day at the local spa? A facial or a pedicure is things most women enjoy. A massage could be wonderful and you might consider joining her.

DINNER AND A MOVIE The trick here is that you need to think of a restaurant that you know she enjoys. If you love Mexican and you know she is on a diet, then think of somewhere she can find something on the menu she would like.  Remember it is Valentine’s Day and this is a gift, so when you choose a movie, make sure it is a girly type romantic and not a Rambo flick.

WEEKEND GET AWAY who would not love this idea. Again the trick is to think of what she might like. Just because you are a back packer who can hike half way up the pacific trail in one afternoon does not mean she would love doing this. How about a get away to the ocean in a bed and breakfast. Talk to her mom or close friends and ask for ideas.
The important thing is that you think of what she would want. Maybe a pound of SEE'S candy is at the top of your list, but not every woman would enjoy that.  So go ahead. Think out of the box and be creative. Happy Valentine’s Day.
