So lovebirds…Valentines Day is almost upon us and undoubtably you will be pondering on what to give your loved on on this the “most romantic day of the year”. According to Wikipedia the U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, behind Christmas. The association also estimates that, men spend on average twice as much money as women. I know there are plenty of men out there that read this blog too so hopefully I can provide some inspired ideas for loverly gifts for her!! Get yer wallets out gents!
Show her your romantic nature with the gift of Romance evocative photos by Chris Craymer. £31.50 from Waterstones.com
Say it with Flowers:
Tried and tested a bouquet of flowers will rarely be greeted with anything but glee by the lady in your life. Flowers.ie have a great selection of Red Roses. I particularly like the “6 Stolen Kisses” and at €35 is a reasonable price for a gorgeous gift.
However gorgeous, lingerie will be wasted if its the wrong size – so check her bra and get it right fellas! Red is the colour requested by 95% of men, followed by pink or burgandy according to top retailer, which advises men to go for “pretty feminine and sexy” rather than practical! Get down to the lingerie dept. of your nearest department store and don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice from the sales people, you won’t be the first man to shop for undies for your partner so get over your blushes and go for it!
Scent for a Woman:
“Rose The One” the latest from Dolce and Gabbana is rosy, flirty and feminine. Available from all good department stores and will set you back about €45.
