How to Show Your Love Through the Giving of Gifts

Flowers, chocolates, an intimate dinner for two, a weekend getaway in Paris -- these are only a few of the things you can give to the man or woman in your life to express your love and affection.

The problem is that so many people make the mistake of thinking that the price of a gift is the best determinant of whether it will be held in high regard by the recipient. While the price tag does undoubtedly contribute to some extent to a gift's impact, it is not the most important factor when it comes to how well it will be received.

You can buy a perfume gift set that costs more than $500 for instance, but if your recipient is allergic to fragrance, then that gift won't have the romantic impact you were aiming for, would it?

On the other hand, if you bought your wife or girlfriend a bouquet of roses that set you back by only $25 or so, but roses are her favorite flowers, then it is more than likely that she will view and appreciate the gift as a romantic gesture from you.

Another thing to keep in mind when looking for a gift for your beloved is that the most memorable presents are not necessarily material in nature. Surprising him with a trip to somewhere new where the fishing is great (if he is an avid fisherman, for example) or presenting her with tickets to a Broadway play she has been anticipating is also a very romantic gesture. Being there to share in an experience that your man or woman will find pleasure in can be a priceless present.

Some men and women are reluctant to give gifts because of budgetary constraints. They feel they cannot afford to give extravagant gifts to their partner. But, as stated above, gifts need not be expensive to be special.

According to relationship experts, the giving of gifts is an important form of communication in a relationship. Giving the right gift is a way of making your partner feel appreciated and loved. It is a way of saying "You are in my thoughts and I love you." It strengthens the bond between giver and recipient, cementing the relationship even more. Looking at it this way, you cannot afford to NOT give a gift if you want the bond between the two of you to stay steadfast and true.

Ideas for gifts of romance are virtually limitless in number. The right romantic gift basket, for instance, can convey to him or her your love and affection. Visit us today at to find a gift for Valentine's Day or any other occasion that he or she will find a delight to receive.

It's said that for every month you date someone it will take you a week to get over them. So if you were with someone for a year, you'd need three months before the heartache of a break-up subsided. I'm not sure who came up with this formula. It's hardly scientific. But it's something I always keep in mind - not because I believe it's accurate, but because it's nice to have a time frame to work with.... [Read the full story]
