Best Abilene Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Woman, Chosen by Women
Valentine’s Day is coming up pretty quickly. February 14th, in case you didn’t know. Many of you panic the day before to come up with a gift for your sweetie. Sometimes that means you don’t really get the right gift. Flowers, candy and a card are the staples. Those are all great but how about this year you get your girl something she REALLY wants. Not sure what that might be? I’ll help you out. I did a non-scientific poll, in other words, I ASKED. I got some great responses and some are a little more expensive and others just require YOU. So here are some of the top requests from women about what they want this Valentine’s Day.
Ladies want to be pampered. Stress from work, kids, the house and yes you, needs to be wiped away with an afternoon at the Spa. A massage, manicure/pedicure, facial, hair styling...the works. Just a couple hours of alone time to decompress and recharge. I promise this is a gift that will get you brownie points. However, you could always choose the 'couple's' massage option too!
In case you didn't already know this, diamonds are a girls best friend! Yes we love sparkly stuff. Earrings, necklace, bracelets, rings. It doesn't have to be big or expensive just as long as it's something you've picked out for us. Some of my best jewelry is special because it was given to me by someone who loved me. Charm bracelets are especially nice because you can always add a charm for a special occasion.
Gift Card to Favorite Store/Restaurant
If you can't think of gift then the gift card to our favorite store will work just fine. You could even get a gift card to our favorite restaurant too. We love to shop, most of us anyway, and even if we don't need anything right now we can always use it later. This takes the pressure off of you to find the right size, color, style etc. Just let us find something we love.
Time Alone with You
Whether it's a simple few hours alone with you or a full weekend, we do enjoy spending time reconnecting. No kids, phones, neighbors, friends; just the two of you. Maybe rent a movie, have a couple of drinks together over conversation that doesn't consist of kids or work, or a weekend at a bed and breakfast. We will love it. Sometimes we take each other for granted and this is a great time to remind her that she is loved and appreciated.
This was, by far, the most requested from all the ladies who responded to my inquiry. The candlelight dinner was requested to be at home with a homemade meal and a glass of wine. This will take a little work on your part but it will also mean the most. It doesn't cost a lot and is a simple gesture that will make her day. Oh, and actually put some effort into looking nice too....candlelight dinner in sweats isn't romantic!
