Regardless of what they may tell you, women love receiving gifts. When you’re married, you may have to actually splurge on gifts for your wife. However, when you’re just dating, you don’t have to worry about spending lots of money on a gift. When it comes to buying gifts for women that you’re dating, it’s more important to focus on the reasoning for why you bought her the gift rather than the gift itself. As a matter of fact, you can buy a woman practically anything and she’ll be happy to receive it as long as you make it seem like you bought it for her to make her life easier.
Bring on the Toiletries
Forget those expensive bottles of perfume and body oils. You can still make a woman fall for you by buying her something as cheap as a bottle of shampoo and conditioner. It’s not what you buy for her. It’s how you present it. The next time you’re in the store, check out one of those body gift sets that they have for women. They’re usually in some type of cheap basket with lined with paper and containing body wash, lotion, and some type of body spray. These types of gift baskets can be ridiculously expensive and you aren’t even able to tell what they smell like until after you’ve purchased them.
Instead of spending your money on something that could possibly stink, make your way over to the heath and beauty section of the store and create your own gift set. You can buy body wash, shampoo, lotion, or whatever you want to add into your custom made gift set. You just have to make sure that you have some type of theme for your gift. Look for bottles that are the same color. Good colors to choose are pink and purple. If those colors aren’t available, try to choose bottles that are closer to pastel rather than something dark. After you’ve selected all the items you want to include in your gift set, grab some clear gift-wrapping paper and a bright ribbon. Throw everything in the paper, add the bow, and you’re done. It may look terrible, but she’ll feel like you put so much thought and effort into it, she’ll be all over you.
Time for Tea
Another great cheap gift idea is to go to dollar store and purchase her a couple of mugs. You should look for the most stylish ones available. Avoid anything too festive like holiday mugs. You can then head over to a nearby grocery store and buy her a couple of different types of inexpensive tea. Make sure you have good reasoning for which tea you’ve chosen to buy. For example, if she’s always complaining about headaches, try choosing Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer Tea. Throw everything in a gift bag with some tissue paper and give it to her. Don’t wait for her birthday or a special day. Just give it to her.
Remember, all women love gifts, especially when the gifts are thoughtful and unexpected.
