There are a lot of special occasions and reasons that call for giving a gift to a person. However, one of the most important people that we get gifts for (no matter the occasion or reason) is our significant others.
While it may seem like an easy task (presumably you know your girlfriend quite well,) the actual act of picking out the perfect gift to get your girlfriend can be slightly more difficult than it seems.
The reasons we have for giving gifts range from special occasions, celebrations, apologies, and just a good-old-fashioned show of appreciation, and each of these events have their own special stipulations for gift getting.
Gifts to say you are thinking about them
If your girlfriend is a big reader, chances are you have already exhausted the ideas of raiding her GoodReads list for books, or perhaps you are less adventurous and have already purchased gift cards to her favourite book store for each of the last couple of gift-giving occasions, so why not think outside of the book and look for gifts like a super soft plush blanket – perfect for wrapping herself in and cozying in with tea and a good book. Or, speaking of tea, you can always surprise your girlfriend with a special mug – perfect for saying you`re thinking about them … and respect their need for caffeine and quiet time!
While jewellery might be the cliche cornerstone of special occasion girlfriend gift giving, there is one major underlying reason why we have to give gifts: To show that not only do we care, but that we know the other person. So, unless the piece of jewellery is personalized, or special, maybe skip the cliche and go for something personal like tickets to see her favourite band. Live music is the perfect twist on the classic dinner and a movie date, while also adding a dash of personal flare.
