As St. Valentine’s Day comes is approaching, Russian Accent asked 100 women from different countries about what their favorite gifts would be and has found out that all of them have quite similar preferences.
Dear men! Here is the list of the top 5 gifts women want to get for St. Valentine’s Day and other festive occasions. Pay attention!
(1) Romantic trip or dinner
A romantic trip to Paris would be probably the best choice, but if you’ve run out of money, a holiday trip to the countryside is also a good alternative. Another possible option is a romantic dinner. It isn’t that important if you take out your girl to a fancy restaurant or impress her with your cooking talents. The key thing is to create a romantic atmosphere for both of you and make this evening unforgettable.
Not without a reason it has been said that “diamonds are a girl’s best friends.” About one in three our respondents confessed that they would be happy to get jewels for this romantic occasion. Many added they don’t expect extra expensive gifts, so the choice is yours, depending on your current financial situation.
7% of women also said they would be happy to receive a golden ring alongside with a marriage proposal. So, guys, if you are ready for a serious commitment, St. Valentine’s Day may become the right time to make that decisive step.
(3) Going to “adventure” or entertainment event together
30% of women surveyed consider going out to an entertainment event the best way to celebrate this romantic day. Many prefer to go to a concert, theater, exhibition or some kind of a show. Others went further and mentioned “joint adventure” gift certificates, such as “SPA visit for two”, a joint photo session, an air balloon flight or a romantic evening in a jazz club.
(4) Sweets and flowers
As cliché as they may seem, sweets and flowers still remain popular among women. Nevertheless, some creativity should be used as advantage. A tasty cake with an “I love you” words and a bunch of your girlfriend’s favorite summer flowers may be a good choice.
And finally, accessories. Handbags, purses and scarfs – all these things women name as a desired present for a festive occasion. However, be careful and try to learn your girlfriend’s taste. You can ask her to choose a gift for your sister’s birthday on an online store website and remember what she liked the most.
The suggestions listed above would do well for any occasion, though you should better keep in mind that women expect something more personal as a birthday present. “I would love to receive something that could show how much the other person knows me or loves me”, one of the respondents told Russian Accent.
“An ideal man should be able to find out what exactly you like, secretly buy it and make a surprise”, echoed another.
Suggestions range from a book to an iPhone, from concert tickets to a small puppy. Here is not much we can recommend you, as you really have to make an effort and learn what your fiancée is fond of. But what we are 100% sure about is that women do expect your full attention and care on this day.
The general truth is well reflected in a respondent’s statement: “For any occasion I just need to feel that my boyfriend cares about me. That he is not busy with himself or his work, but is really interested to know what’s going on in my life.”
