Many men have believed that diamonds truly are a girl’s best friend. This has enabled men to provide women with diamonds for presents, whether in the form of earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets or other forms of jewelry. But while diamonds are beautiful and elegant, they’re not always the best go-to gift to give your woman.
If you truly want to impress the love of your life, you’ll need to think of something other than diamonds, and the following information can help you make a great choice.
Know What She Likes
It’s very important that you pay attention to what a woman says that she likes. For example, she may wear jewelry, but she may prefer garnets or sapphires to diamonds. It’s always best to give someone you love a gift that they will truly enjoy, and knowing what she likes will help.
It’s also possible that the person you’re getting a gift for may not like jewelry at all, and if this is the case, giving her diamonds will not be a good idea. Pay attention to what she wears. If she never wears jewelry, don’t buy it for her.
Know What She Needs
Practical gifts may not sound exciting, but it shows that you’re paying attention and can provide her with something that she needs. For example, a new toaster may not scream romance, but if it’s something that she’s been putting off for years, buying her one will show her that you listen to what she says and that you pay attention to your surroundings.
Take Her Away
Trips can always be a great gift. If you can’t determine what physical gift to buy, try and opt for a getaway instead. Even if it’s just a quick weekend trip to a local bed and breakfast, a trip allows you to get away from your everyday routine and be invested in each other.
If you cannot make a trip happen for the two of you, you can also consider sending her on a trip with her friends. This will give her some much needed girl time, and it will show her that you could handle the house when she’s gone. Just make sure that she doesn’t come up to a sloppy mess, otherwise you’ll be in big trouble.
Women love creativity, and if you can give her a creative gift, it will make it much more memorable in the long run. Maybe you can create a gift basket filled entirely with things she loves, or maybe you can do something extremely special, such as get her an autographed item from her favorite celebrity. There are plenty of creative gifts you can give if you just pay attention to what she wants and what she needs.
If you’re completely out of ideas, break out some craft supplies and make her something. Even if it doesn’t turn out perfect, the amount of thought and time you put into the gift will easily shine through, and she’ll feel extra special that you did something of this magnitude for her—and this is so much better than diamonds.
