Surprises are a no-go, but you’ve made sure to completely clear their schedule. You do the classic candle-lit dinner thing, but the true gift is the garage that you’ve finally cleared out. Is that a tear of gratitude you see?
Jet setting to New York where you’ve reserved a room at a cute boutique hotel. You spend the day strolling the streets together, checking out store or pizzeria that interests you.
A beautiful bouquet of red roses. It’s all about the romantic classics tonight and making sure they know how special they are.
Your S.O. knows the value of a self care time, and gets it whenever they can. They’re the masters of recharging so they can be 100% present when they need to be. But your S.O. is also compassionate, and maybe they need a little help devoting time to taking care of themselves, instead of taking care of everyone else. The perfect gift you can give them is something that will help them practice self-care in a meaningful and luxurious way. If you want to go splashy...You can’t go wrong with gifting them a spa day. Go the extra mile and take care of all of the logistics like getting them to and from the spa, and booking lunch afterwards. You’ll get to benefit by seeing them absolutely glow with contentment. All the points!You can also help them level-up their already existing self-care routines. Do they love soaking in the tub? Get them a set of deliciously scented bath salts, special essential oils, or some waterproof speakers so they can really get into the mood. Remember, with self-care it’s not just about the luxury of taking a bath or going to the spa – it’s taking the time to take care of themselves that’s most important.
Quality Time With YOU
What your S.O. wants above all is to spend some QUALITY time with you. Emphasis on quality. Sitting on the couch and binge-watching Criminal Minds isn’t quality time. Quality time is committing to being 100% present with each other.You should feel honored that above all your S.O. wants to spend time with you! A fun way to spend quality time together is to explore a new place together, or experience something new. With your S.O.’s love of quality time, a grand gesture would be whisking them away to a weekend getaway, just the two of you. You can stay local too, and finally do that wine tasting (virtual options available) you’ve been meaning to do, or do a crafts workshop together, or go see your favorite band playing at the local venue. Whatever it is that you decide to give, the most important thing is you do it together!
Order and Simplification Please!
Your S.O. is truly an organizational powerhouse, but as a consequence they’ve got A LOT going on. Between work/business, home, kids, family, their side hustle, on and on the list goes. How do they manage it all? Organization. Simplification. Please! They crave order and need to plan ahead, so surprising them with a getaway is a surefire way to end up in the dog house. Anything that you can do or give to make their day-to-day easier and smoother will be appreciated above all. Even if that means taking a weekend to finally clean out the garage, so there’s more room for everything to be in the right place.For your order-minded S.O., the most romantic gift is anything that will take the burden off of them, whether it be a meal kit subscription or housekeeping services. Make sure to take the time you’ve freed up for them and schedule in some date nights, otherwise they’ll likely fill the gap with yet another project!
The One and Only
Your sweetheart is a big ol’ romantic, there’s no better way to say it. Red roses, proclamations of love and grand gestures...they’re totally into it. The thing about romantic gestures is that above all, your S.O. wants to feel like the most special person to you. And they are, right? ...Right?! All they want is a little something that says, “I love you”, or like you, or think you're cool. Ya know, depending on what your relationship sitch is. You can’t go wrong with the classics: A bouquet of red roses, breakfast in bed, candlelit dinners. If you’re looking for a more creative approach, go for a heart-felt and handwritten love letter. You get all the extra points. That’s enough to make anyone swoon! Put on some romcoms and start taking notes. What may seem corny to you will truly touch their hearts.
Luxurious and Fabulous
It’s all about that ooh la la! For your special someone: The Michelin star restaurants, the designer handbags, the fancy watches. It’s not that they’re overly materialistic – they would just rather invest in something that is truly exceptional!Don’t worry if you have a limited budget: You can still get something luxurious for your lover. It’s not about how expensive something is, it’s about the craftsmanship and the quality. If you’re looking to make a big impression, then you can’t go wrong with reservations at the best restaurant in town, or a shopping excursion at the high end boutiques. Luxury doesn’t have to mean expensive – it’s also about the things that are rare and priceless. You can wow your S.O. with a one-of-a-kind piece of art, or a hand-crafted piece of furniture for the house. Surround your S.O. with luxury, because they deserve it!
