Tick tock, Valentine's  Day is just around the corner and your prep time for lover's day wooing is running out. Still, you don't know what to get her!

Asking someone what to get them as a present kills all the romance and getting them something they don’t want is even worse.

It's a hustle.

However, putting together a gift can be the easiest thing to do if you know how to go about it. Here are some tips on how to come up with the perfect gift this Valentines

1. List down what you know about her

This will help you remember her dos and don’ts. Make it as long as possible so as to widen your options. It can also help you remember something she said she wanted that she is yet to buy herself. Buying a gift that’s something she mentioned shows her that you listen when she speaks.

2. Think in past tense

Did she lose her favourite purse? Get her another one. Buying gifts based on past life events shows the importance of those moments to you and that’s a gift in itself.


3. Make her laugh

Indulge her crazy and she’ll be a very happy woman. Ladies like men who make them laugh. Adding a bit of humor to your gift shows a deep level of intimacy.


4. Activate stalker mode

Watch her body language and reactions to things. Most people have a wish list. It doesn’t have to be online. Gifts created from a partner’s statements like, “I need to get myself that phone” shows your empathy to their desires and deep care.


5. Chip in a bit of you

Giving a personalized gift shows that you took your time to think about what to get her and that you are allowing her into our personal space. Also, its way easier to pick something you have an idea about than all the girly stuff.

6. Make it an event

Instead of just handing out the gift, make a big deal out of it. Take her on a scavenger hunt, wrap it up with layers of gift wrapper to increase anticipation. Whatever it is, make it memorable for your lady.
