“Hun, you remember what today is?”“Um..Wednesday.”“You mean you really don’t remember?”Don’t tell me this has never happened in your relationship. He thinks it’s just a regular day and then he sees his girlfriend and immediately he knows something is up. He forgot to get the lady a gift for the anniversary of…of….the time you guys...? That’s it - he’s toast.
Girls forget things all the time. They forget to pick up the dry cleaning, walk the dog, the dinner date with your parents. But when it comes to special occasions in a relationship somehow she always seem to remember. And don’t just think the anniversary of your first date or when you become official is the only occasion to celebrate. There is the anniversary of your first glance, first kiss, and god forbid he forgets the anniversary of the first time you both said, “I love you.”
When it comes to celebrating special occasions between a boyfriend and girlfriend you know a gift is essential. Gifts are the perfect way to express your love and appreciation. One gift can say a thousand things without speaking a word. As much as we want to convince ourselves that gift giving is just a materialistic expression of our feelings, let’s be honest, that’s you being cheap. Spending money on your girlfriend or the woman you love can make the you feel just as good as she will feel when receiving a gift from you.
A unique couple gift, otherwise known as a “his and her gift”, is the perfect gift to give to a girlfriend on a special occasion. A “his and her” gift is the perfect way to inspire more affection between a loving duo. You and your girlfriend are already attached at the hip so why not a gift that you can enjoy together?
A “his and her” gift doesn’t mean walking around in matching outfits. The thought of that will make her cringe the same amount as the man, if not more. It was cute back in preschool when our moms used to match us with our siblings. After a certain age, let’s face it, it’s tacky. A classy option is personalised boyfriend and girlfriend jewellery.
No matter the occasion jewellery, whether it is a necklace, pair of earrings, or bracelet will always excite the lady in your life. A necklace handpicked by her man shows thought and care. A personalised “his and her” necklace will show the man’s investment (and not just financially) and lasting commitment to the relationship. His and her necklaces engraved with each others names is meaningful to the two of you as well as shows off your love for each other. Or try a ring and necklace set with one accessory for the man and the other for the lady.
Not every man loves wearing jewellery or can pull off the “man-ery” look. A “couple necklace” just for her is the perfect option for the boyfriend who doesn’t wear jewellery. Engrave a necklace with your names or your two initials to create the personalised gift she will love as much as her man. For a creative gift idea she will love, personalise a name necklace with the pet name only you call her (as long as it’s not too embarrassing). Expect a gasp of surprise and joy when presenting to her a sparkling accessory personalised for the two of you.
