We all have that one special woman in our life, whether it’s our mum, sister, wife, or girlfriend. There are so many different women who can be surprised with a thoughtful gift. It could be a ‘thank you’ for a recent favour or for simply being who they are. The perfect present can make her feel valued, improving her mood and self-esteem in the process.
Sadly, it’s not always easy to know what would make a perfect surprise. That’s why this article has created a list of simple ideas that are guaranteed to provide delight for this special female.
Flowers are a beautiful way to express your feelings, and they can really brighten up someone’s day. One flower people like receiving is roses, and they’re an easy go-to gift for Mother’s Day (or any other day in fact!). Tulips and sunflowers are also popular because they are unique and have a pleasant appearance. Lilies are associated with purity and innocence, making them perfect for a woman you admire and respect.
Also check out orchids, gerberas and daisies. When in doubt, ask the florist for advice. They’ll be more than happy to help you choose a flower arrangement that will make your loved one smile. If you go online you could access quick flower deliveries which could arrive on the same or next day. These specialist websites often display photos and prices, designer’s choice, favourite of the week and helpful FAQs.
Some Chocolates Or A Spa day
Chocolates and truffle gift baskets are always a good option for those with a sweet tooth. There are many different choices available on the market, so it should be easy to find the perfect gift. If you’re looking for something extra special, consider getting a personalized basket containing her favourite chocolates. If she’s on a diet, chocolates without sugar can be a great option. Also, those made with other ingredients such as cocoa butter or dark chocolate have fewer calories.
Spa days are a wonderful way to celebrate women and show them how much you care. The day can include such things as a pedicure, massage, manicure or facial treatments. If it’s a new experience for her, she’ll be keen to repeat it! You can get spa packages at many locations or even make your own spa day by buying a few things beforehand.
A Meal Out Or At Home
One of the best ways to surprise a woman is by taking her out to dinner. A restaurant can provide a romantic and intimate setting that is perfect for a special occasion. Also, it gives you the opportunity to spoil her with one of her favourite meals. If you’re not sure where to go, do some research online or consult with friends who have good taste in restaurants.
Another great option is preparing a romantic meal for your partner at home. This allows you to be in complete control of the atmosphere and menu. Again, do some research online or ask friends for recommendations on recipes. Don’t forget the wine because a nice bottle of red or white can really set the mood. Imagine her face when she walks in after a tiring day at work, only to see the table laid and romantic music playing in the background!
An Unexpected Trip
Why not surprise that special person by taking her to her favourite place, or somewhere she’s always wanted to go. This could be anything from a day trip or weekend break to a full-blown vacation. If you’re not sure what her favourite place is, secretly ask her friends, family or colleagues. It’ll be worth it to see the look of surprise and happiness on her face when she realizes what’s happening.
If she has a favourite band, orchestra or musical, why not book tickets and take her there? If your budget doesn’t stretch to a trip away, you could always take her somewhere special in your own town or city. A walk around a favourite park or a visit to a museum or gallery can make for an unexpectedly wonderful day. Don’t forget the fact that it’s the thought that counts.
Words mean a lot to people, and it could be an amazing way to surprise that special person – especially if you’re not someone who puts these things into words very often. This could be a note to your mom or sister to say how much you appreciate them, or a love letter to your girlfriend, partner or spouse. Not only could it bring this person to tears, but they will put it away and treasure it forever.
It’s not an expensive thing to do, and all it will cost is your time and thought. If you study the five love languages you will discover that words of affirmation are one of them. If this is one of your wife’s love languages, you could be doing something really special for her.
A Day Off
It may be that your special lady has one day in the week where she’s alone because you’re busy working. If you take the day off unexpectedly to be with her, it may be a great surprise. You could take time out of your normal routine to simply spend some quality time together or to do something special. Another day off idea would be to say you’ll take the kids all day, or do the washing, ironing, cooking and cleaning for her. Instead of this lady spending two hours grocery shopping, why not get her to do a list and get it all yourself. It’s a practical suggestion but it could remove some of the drudgeries for her.
Hopefully, you now have a few ideas you can put into place for this special lady. If you choose well she will be bowled over and remember your kindness for a long time. If you share the treat it will become a precious memory for you both, and it’ll be something you love to look back on and savour.
