What To Buy Your Special Someone For Her Birthday

June 13th, 2010 by wys


Depending on the girl, buying presents can sometimes be a stressful and unexciting endeavor. Many people automatically assume that they must buy the most overpriced and exclusive gifts to keep up appearances. Some go out and spend hundreds on cross necklaces for their pious friends or a locket necklace for younger girls. Many people waste much more than they thought they would on these over enthusiastic gifts and overlook the cheaper, sometimes better gifts. Buying gifts for that special someone can be much simpler (and much more frugal).

A fantastic gift that is sometimes undervalued is flowers. Flowers seem to be the cornerstone of all gift giving when it comes to girls. There are very few girls that don’t like getting flowers (unless they’re allergic!) and generally you can get nice, beautiful flowers cheap. Flowers are also flexible in that there’s a type of flower arrangement for every occasion. Valentine’s Day generally warrants red roses while a birthday could include a more colourful, varied bouquet. The other great thing about flowers is that, given the right upkeep, they can last for a long, long time. People can press flowers or let them dry out and keep them for as long as they’re like if they’re cautious with them. Having pressed flowers in a on display or a bouquet of dried roses is a constant reminder of love and admiration.

Another present that’s underappreciated is chocolate. Unless a girl clearly says that she doesn’t like chocolate, chances are she’s got a real love for it. Chocolate comes in differing types and with various price tags but you don’t have to spend a fortune to impress your special someone. Instead, ask what kind of chocolate she likes the best and then go for that. The kinds of chocolate range from milk to dark to white and everything in between so knowing which she enjoys the most is a real time saver. Likewise, chocolate candy can contain other things like peanuts, filling, cookies, etc. Chocolate is a sweet reminder of love but don’t expect it to last very long!

Last, and probably the most thoughtful gift of all, is something created by you. Whether it’s a card or a painting or a game, that special someone will love the creativity put into the gift. Obviously it takes more time to make a present by hand, but the outcome is much more personal and the end result is much more appealing. If you don’t think of yourself as a creative sort of guy, try doing something simple like taking pictures of the two of you and making a scrapbook. Handwriting a letter is appreciated more than most people think.

In the end, there are many types of gifts you can buy that special someone without breaking the bank. From flowers to chocolate to creative, handmade gifts, the possibilities are endless. Whatever gift you end up choosing for your friend, loved one or acquaintance, make sure it’s appropriate and somewhat personal. If the person receiving the gift knows you spent time and effort picking it out, they’re much more likely to love it.
