The right gift for your partner is out there. But where is it and how can you get your paws on it?
Choosing the right gift can be challenging at times, whether it is Christmas, a birthday, or a simple thank you gesture.
These events are the best times to spoil them rotten, but pressure can set it in to make things special.
But fear not, it is possible to turn a difficult buying situation on its head and end up with a great gift that they’ll love and cherish for eternity.
What Do They Like?
This is the most obvious place to start, we think. Does your partner enjoy going to the theatre? Then surprise them with dinner and a show. Sports, then tickets are the way to go. Whether it’s music or food, think about what hobbies they best enjoy and go with your instincts.
Take some time to draw up a list of a few ideas that may work, and then compare them with each other; you’ll be surprised that comparing ideas with each other will give you an idea of which route to go down and which gifts can be saved for a different rainy day.
What Do You Do Together?
Shared experiences might be the way to go.
There must be a number of reasons that you’re together, so think about what you like to do together.
Remember that time you were in Croatia and enjoyed a great glass of wine. Then source out a wine from your local merchants. Or was there a time when you cooked on date night but burnt the potatoes? Enter a new casserole crock pot for the next date.
Moving on, reverting back to pastimes can be romantic, but not always the way for every one.
Chocolates and flowers are great, but perhaps don’t give these on Valentine’s Day and save them for another occasion (Honey-I’m-home-and-it’s-Friday is the perfect time to bring home flowers, just because.)
There’s no need to run the risk of looking like you’ve gone for the easy option when you can take ten minutes to think up a tremendous idea. And what’s the worst that can happen, you get blocked with ideas and there’ll always be a friend or family member who can help you out.
It might not be your fault that you can’t think of things; your partner might not want to appear greedy and has never mentioned any ideas to you.
Where Do We Turn?
At MFM, we’re always looking for inspiration and new places to find exciting new ideas and gifts. That’s why while this exciting gift seems traditional, it’s contemporary in its style.
Look at Eternity Rose, these roses are real and natural. They are picked at the peak of their beauty, and then dipped in pure 24-Karat gold, platinum and silver.
What’s even better, the roses are also glazed as well as there being gold-trimmed roses and rose jewellery.
We’ve had our eyes on this 24-Karat Gold-Dipped Natural Rose.
This is a romantic gift idea for your partner and perfectly combines the beauty of a rose and the majesty of fine gold. What we like is that it’s exquisitely presented in a leather case, and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The fine gold finish is brilliant, and is a symbol of love that will last an eternity.
There’s also a playable deck of poker cards dipped in 24-Karat gold. This is produced to tournament trade standards and, what’s more, the cards are used frequently throughout the world in casino high-roller rooms.
Like the roses, these are equally presented in a high quality case, although this one is made from gorgeous cherrywood, and also contains a certificate of authenticity.
All Wrapped Up
So there we go. A modern alternative to an ever-lasting romantic gift.
This is just an idea for your partner, but what Eternity Rose represents is much bigger than the beauty of the products.
The next time a birthday or Friday night comes along, think of something your partner likes and then think of something similar but alternative that isn’t your run-of-the-mill idea. They will thank you for it in the long run, and after all, the gift of gift-giving is something for you to cherish too.
You love your partner and so this should translate in your gifts.
