Shopping for Valentines

How hard is it to shop for somebody in Valentines day?

Very hard.

Take it from me. I have been on the constant search for the perfect Valentine date but I always fall short. Don’t get me wrong here. I am really trying my hardest to find the best gift there is but it seems like it eludes me every single time.

So where did I go wrong?

It’s the movies.

Yep. It is definitely the movies.

See, people have been watching all these sappy and heart-wrenching movies about love and they give us this weird and wrong idea of love.

It’s always flowers, chocolates, or other cliche object as gift.

We forget that while these are great gifts, it may not be the one our partners want.

For example, I’ve had a friend who doesn’t give flowers, chocolates, gadgets, or even jewelry to his wife. Every year he gives her a note and that’s all he gives her. His wife won’t tell me what’s on the note but she’s the happiest wife I know.

So when you are getting something for your significant other. Don’t just believe the movies. Be sensitive. Think about what she might need. What she might want. Think about what would really make him/her happy.
