Roses are red, violets are blue

As Valentine’s Day approaches, couples everywhere are hasting to get everything they need to make that day special. From chocolates to candle-lit dinners, there’s a lot of pressure to make this day perfect. For that reason, some people panic when it comes time figuring out what to get their valentine, so I’ve come up with a few things that might help your decision making.

This first one’s for the guys: you can never go wrong with flowers (unless she’s allergic). Red roses will do the job, but getting a different kind of flower is unexpected and will make you stand out. However, I would advise staying away from yellow roses. Although pretty, they symbolize friendship, and that’s probably not your intention. This may seem excessive, but women read into everything.

Just like thank you cards are always appreciated, Valentine’s Day cards are never out of style. Don’t rush when picking a card. Finding the perfect sentiment is worth the time. It’s always a struggle to locate a card that speaks to you without it being too cheesy, so if you don’t find something you like, I think it’s better to make your own card. The last thing you want to do is get something that sends the wrong message.

Last, but not least, make it personal. Find a gift where you can integrate pictures or engravings. It makes it that much more special when you incorporate things like inside jokes or memories that you both shared. Also, be meticulous when it comes to detail. It’s the little things that go a long way.
