One month. That’s all it takes to reach your first big dating anniversary. And while it’s easily a bigger deal for her than it is to you, if you’re hoping to carry this thing forward into Month No. 2, you’d better get her something. But what?
His and hers matching bath towels …
A talking parrot …
A fondue fountain!
If only it were that easy. The trick is you’ve got to pick a gift that showcases your creativity without branding yourself as a complete nutter butter. And without spending a fortune because face it: It has only been one month! Try one of these three fun ideas that will up the odds that she will love you long time.
News flash for you: Girls love flowers. You could play it safe and buy a dozen roses from your local florist. But that’s been done to death, so it wouldn’t win you too many points for originality. Go out on a limb and send your sweetheart a Speaking Roses Video Flower. Watch her face light up with delight as she places her gorgeous rose in front of her webcam or smartphone and views your tender video message. If you have a nice singing voice, this gift idea is solid gold.
Cliché perhaps, and maybe a little childish, but girls love stuffed animals, especially ones that come with some sincerity behind it. You can never go wrong with a teddy bear when it’s early in the relationship. Plus, it’s a guarantee that she’ll be thinking about you every time she snuggles up to go to bed.
It doesn’t have to be just a normal teddy bear, though. Up the ante and add some bling to your bear. For example, at the Serious Teddy Bear, we have personalized teddy bear gift baskets especially for romance and anniversaries that comes with a plus teddy bear and some other gifts and goodies. If you really want to melt her heart, add a personalized handwritten message to her gift basket. Hint: Girls love gushy words.
Cupcakes are all the craze these days. Show your girlfriend you care by giving her a six-pack of assorted cupcakes. Crumbs Bake Shop will deliver a snazzy selection of fancy cupcakes right to her door. Choose from a huge variety that borders on the bizarre, including apple cobbler, blackbottom cheesecake brownie, chocolate sundae, cookies and cream, dulce de leche, milkshake, mudslide and squiggle. For the record, the squiggle resembles a Hostess cupcake. Just thought you’d like to know.
What are some other ideas that you could get your girlfriend on your one-month anniversary?
