When it come to buying love tokens, often men have it easy don’t they? They can just pop out, or go online and get one of the thousands of heart or love themed objects that are specially designed for women. But when us girls have to do the same for them, it often means putting in a bit more though and work. Luckily we have come up with a guide to help you solve the dilemma of what you get your boo as a token of your love. Just keep reading to find out more.
A lovely way of showing how much room your other half occupies in your heart is by getting them a personalized gift. Happily, there are many shops that now specialize in things like this, so there are no longer difficult to find.
Particularly good ideas include wallets, necklaces, or rings with the coordinates of where you first met, got together, or got married on them.
Or another sweet male focused personalized gifts include cute word pictures containing all the things that they love, or the things that you love to do together.
Or if you prefer more of a scrapbook vibe then why not try a smash book? These are scrapbooks that are designed to be added to quickly and organically to make a fantastic document of a special time in your life. You can really put anything you like in there including pictures, napkins from his favorite restaurants, poems or other ephemera.
Ok, this might sound a bit corny, but you don’t have to start quoting Shakespeare or anything. Instead, you can just write about the qualities that you most appreciate in them. Or a particular time in which they supported you, and you want to say thank you for.
You can even get a whole pack of cards and envelopes and just put one good thing about them on eac. Then send them one by one through the post. Which is not only adorably sweet and romantic, but will also be a lovely treat for their ego as well.
Now, if you would prefer to let the gift do the talking rather than your own words you might want to consider getting your bae some jewelry. Jewelry is a great love token as its expensive, so it shows that you value them, and it made from precious metal which will stand the test of time. Just like your relationship.
Of course, picking of jewelry items for guys can be fraught with difficulties as it is important to get them an item that fits in with their personal style.
So ask yourself whether they wear rings, necklaces, or cufflinks before you spend all of your money on something. Another good test is to see if you can picture them wearing it? If so it’s probably a good bet.
Remember too, that chunky jewelry like the items available on Amazon is always more masculine. So is likely to be received better, and don’t forget; a little bling looks good on men and women alike.
If you are looking for a physical gift that says I love you, but that also doesn’t cost the Earth, then there is nothing better than a gift basket that you have put together yourself.
This works particularly well if you are in a long distance relationship as you can send it to your partner’s location and remind them of you and home.
But what thing should you include in such a basket? Well, first of all, think favorites. Pack it with their favorite candy, chips, and sodas. Then think about things that you can share together like reading a book, or a game that you can both play.
