Love is not something we study or are ever sat down and taught. Often we learn by example and love is a little more complex than meets the eye. Take a moment to learn what experts have to share on the subject. Give each of you a book on love, try something palatable and easy to read like The 5 Love Languages. It may be a bit cliché, but it became a success for a reason. You don’t know unless you try. And who wouldn’t like to know more about love?
Valentine’s Day - For Her
Sometimes the pressure is on for finding a good gift for your favorite girl, here is my tip for you. Give her something for bath and body with a hint of romance. Things like bubble bath with a few candles are nice. If you are in a more intimate relationship perhaps edible massage oil can be added into the mix. The more senses you can engage the better, so perhaps those chocolate covered strawberries would be nice too or a few candy hearts.
Valentine’s Day - For Him
Man-ly gifts can be hard to come by, but I’ve got you covered. Give him a pair of cufflinks (oh no, you think, not that, too corporate) but here is where it really is personal and fun. There are cufflinks inspired for practically any interest – video games, star wars, gears, lighters with real fire, hidden usb drives (in case your man is into 007) So take a look at a few of the top contenders here. Even if you don’t love the idea, the cufflinks themselves are pretty cool.
