Perfumes make a great Valentine gift for women, at the same time very useful and long-lasting, and also very romantic. Not only do most women love to wear perfumes, as they can help boost their confidence and enhance their feminine charm, they also directly convey the message of love.
A lot of perfume ingredients are aphrodisiacs, supposedly possessing magical powers to bewitch and make that special somebody’s amorous feelings increase. So gifting a perfume to your lady can be translated as a direct message of love in a bottle: ‘Bewitch me further, I am all yours.‘ You can gift the perfume also to your sympathy, but be sure it is not a one-way ‘traffic’.
Take some time and go an extra mile this year by following 5 simple tips to prepare your lady a beautiful and memorable perfume gift for Valentine’s Day.
1. Don’t Rush With the Perfume Choice
Do not rush when buying a perfume as a gift for any kind of occasion. Make it a beautiful, not a skunky gift! Start by researching the gift recipient’s perfume preferences. Does she wear a perfume at all? Ask her (in)directly about her favorite (signature) fragrance. Buying her signature fragrance or the fragrance from the same olfactory family is the safest perfume choice.
If you don’t know about her perfume preferences, consult her friends or family if possible, or go to the nearest perfume shop and let the shop assistant help you select the appropriate perfume for her age, personality and style.
Another great help to choose from the numerous women’s perfumes available, is to consult the wealth of the online information. Check out the perfume review websites, where you can get information about the perfume notes, suitability by age groups, occasions and seasons, information about related perfume products (e.g., scented body lotions or shower gels), prices, and most important, customer reviews.
2. Spice up Your Gift with the Words from the Heart
Personally when I get a gift of any kind, it is the words of the gift giver written or said from the heart that touch me the most. Buy or make your own Valentine card and write in it a beautiful love quote or poem. Search books, remember your favorite romantic movie quotes or check out the quote websites. Even better, say or write how you feel about her with your own words, maybe even with your own poem. How? Just think about her, what you value about her, how she makes you feel and what she means to you.
3. Wrap up Your Gift
Buying a perfume (or any kind of gift) and presenting it in a plain plastic bag will ruin the whole gifting experience for the gift recipient. The message of a gift in a plain plastic bag goes something like this: ‘OK, I remembered to buy you something for this occasion, but it took exactly two minutes of my time, as I bought it at a gas station on the way here.’ Further, it also shows the gift giver has a low level of good manners.
So, make sure to put the perfume (or any other Valentine gift) in a beautiful gift bag or wrap it up in a decorative paper or cellophane. A great way to arrange women’s perfume gift is to make a perfume gift basket, which can contain also other gift items, such as sweets or small stuffed toys.
4. Behave and Dress to Impress
More than a monetary value of the gift it will be important how your lady will feel when you will give her the Valentine gift. Make that day special. Let her feel she is the only one, that you’ve prepared and that you care how she feels. So, brush your teeth, cut your nails, put on a nice suit, a red rose between your teeth and present her the perfume at some pleasant meeting place. You will impress her for this year’s Valentine’s Day, be sure of that!
5. Let Cherishing Your Love Bond Become Your Everyday Habit
You can’t buy a true love with money or things, because it is priceless. Therefore, the monetary value of the Valentine gift is the least important. What really counts and what your Valentine lady will value is that you have put some time and consideration into preparing a thoughtful romantic ‘treat’ for her.
Saint Valentine’s Day is just one day in a year and if you want your love to grow, blossom and be fruitful in the future, it needs to be cherished every day of the year. Choosing the right perfume for a Valentine gift for your lady can take some time, but it is worth it. It can be a thoughtful gift that can help nourish your love bond with her.
