Make this V-Day spe­cial for your girl with these smart gift­ing ideas

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - LIFESTYLE - IANS (With in­puts from Man­isha Cho­pra)

Adozen flow­ers, a teddy bear or even heart-shaped gifts — for him and her — have be­come passé. If you are a man caught in a V-Day gift dilemma, go for some­thing that suits her taste and pref­er­ences on this Valen­tine’s Day, say ex­perts. Ful­fill her sar­to­rial

de­sires: She loves to shop and can spend hours brows­ing through her favourite ac­ces­sories, clothes, footwear, etc. While you may dis­like spend­ing more than 30 min­utes in a crowded mall or ap­parel store, this V-Day take her shop­ping and gift her a gor­geous dress or a swanky hand­bag. Else, present her with a gift voucher of her favourite brand and let her go crazy shop­ping. Don’t be prac­ti­cal while choos­ing gifts for her: The other day she must have in­formed you about her mix­er­grinder that stopped func­tion­ing. Do not think of buying her a new mixer-grinder be­cause she needs one. Well,

that may be a car­ing ges­ture, but for Valen­tine’s Day she may be ex­pect­ing some­thing more ro­man­tic from you. There­fore, make sure to choose a gift that is ro­man­tic, yet thought­ful. For ex­am­ple, how about gift­ing her a spa ses­sion? There’s noth­ing more ro­man­tic than a spa ses­sion that makes your girl feel re­laxed, pam­pered and re­ju­ve­nated.

Gift your time: You can de­cided to make her happy and spend some qual­ity time to­gether by set­ting off on a hol­i­day. While that is a very ro­man­tic ges­ture, en­sure that you’re not plan­ning the trip to catch up on your favourite sport event hap­pen­ing in the city. In­stead, get tick­ets for a play or an opera, which she will en­joy watch­ing with you. Do not pick gifts that make her feel un­com­fort­able:

You may be long­ing to see your lady love in a cock­tail dress with a plung­ing neck­line on V-Day. While she may ac­cept the gift, do not ex­pect her to wear it and go out with you on the same day. Un­less she is com­fort­able to dress up for you, do not force her or make her feel aw­ful for not wear­ing your 'spe­cial gift' on this ro­man­tic oc­ca­sion Ex­plore your cre­ative side:

In­stead of buying her choco­lates or tak­ing her to the new­est restau­rant in town, why not bake her a cake or cook her a meal.

COOK HER A MEAL, BUY HER A SPA VOUCHER OR SEND HER OFF ON A SHOP­PING SPREE — THIS VALEN­TINE’S DAY GO BE­YOND THE USUAL AND MAKE THIS YEAR DIF­FER­ENT
