Dear Miss Molly,
I’ve been dating my girlfriend for two years. With all the anniversaries and holidays in the time we’ve spent together, I’ve run out of presents to give her. Christmas is coming up and I want to give her something perfect to show her how much I love her. Do you have any ideas?
Your girlfriend is a lucky girl. The fact that you’re so concerned about giving her the perfect Christmas present shows how much you really care. I’ll give you my input, but I guarantee no matter what you decide to give her, you can’t go wrong.
Expensive gifts are not necessarily always the most meaningful ones. The creative gifts are usually the ones that bring girls to tears, not necessarily “every kiss begins with Kay.”
Some gentlemen aren’t the most inclined in the creativity department, but I’m sure doing something for your love will get your creative juices flowing. Make a scrapbook of your time spent together. Documenting all your favorite memories in a book is a gift that is thoughtful and adorable and will definitely make her heart throb. Scrapbooks also take a lot of time and energy to create, so your hard work will show her how much you really care. And even better, it won’t be a big hit on your wallet. What’s not to love?
If you want something a little more extravagant yet still creative, plan a perfect date adventure for just the two of you. Show your girlfriend how well you know her by getting tickets for the two of you to see a musical in the city, a concert of her favorite band, or if she’s more sporty, a game of her favorite team. She will be head over heels that you remember the little things about her, and you two will get to spend a fun day in each other’s company. Your gift will be a memory she’ll have forever.
If you’d rather not spend money and time buying tickets and traveling, plan an extra romantic date night. Dress up in your sharpest outfit and cook her a gourmet meal you know she’ll love. If you aren’t the best in the kitchen, get some tips from someone else so you can really “wow” her. Decorate your apartment with roses, candles and play some sensual music. The two of you can spend a loving night together with conversation, wine and great food. Who knows, dessert may end up being sweeter than you planned.
I’m sure your sweetheart will love anything you come up with. Follow your heart and you can’t go wrong.
