Giving a Christmas gift to your romantic partner is different than giving Steve a gift at the office Christmas party. A lot more thought needs to go into choosing a gift for your romantic partner.
All too often we see couples not understanding how not to give a bad gift because they’re just following top Christmas gift trends. Yeah, a new expensive phone is cool, but it’s far from romantic, and when it comes to giving a good romantic Christmas gift, most people forget to take the time to make it romantic and special.
Love is love, and all lovers appreciate romantic gifts.
It doesn’t matter if your partner is new or if you’ve known each other longer than you can remember, if it’s a gift for your lover, it better be romantic. And no, we’re not taking cliches like flowers and jewelry.
We’re taking about something that adds to your spark and encourages it to turn into a raging fire instead of snuffing it out. Not flowers from Sobeys.
What are the Best Romantic Christmas Gifts to give your lover?
If you have read this far you’re probably serious about wanting to avoid being the person that gives a bad gift, or at the very least choose a romantic Christmas gift. We don’t want to tell you what to get your special someone, but we can give you the following tips to being a good romantic gift giver. Keep these in mind and you’ll be under the mistletoe before you can say ho ho ho:
- Choose experiences over stuff. Something you can do and enjoy together is better than another item.
- Give a romantic gift experience that makes you feel rejuvenated. It’s not supposed to be stressful.
- Add your personal touches. If you’re choosing an all inclusive getaway at a stargazing hot tub or a trip to a local resort, think about the things your lover likes and make sure they’re part of the experience
- Plan food to be fun. Nobody wants to be hungry so include food and drinks in your experience plan and pack your partner’s favourite snacks. They will see you thought about them and took the time to plan. Food stress can kill the vibe.
- Include something that takes you out of your comfort zone or has an element of adventure. You want to feel alive and invigorated.
Whatever you give your lover this Christmas, make your gift romantic and give them what they really want. We just want you to be happy, and remember, what they really want can’t be bought.
