Valentine’s day is usually a time when you see people desperately rushing around trying to find gifts for their significant others. The tradition is that it’s the time when you should be spoiling your partner as much as possible to show them how much you love them. And there’s nothing wrong with that, any chance to let the person in your life know that you love them seems like a pretty good thing overall! But what about the other side of it? Why isn’t there more attention paid to doing things the other way round? Why not encourage your partner to do something for you this Valentine’s day? It’s supposed to be about both you after all! To help them figure out what to get you, here are a few hints that you might want to drop for the perfect gift.
If you want to really turn the cuteness dial up to 11 this Valentine’s then why not try something like Valentine’s shirts with adorable and stylish designs? You might even want to get a matching set for the pair of you. Sure, it’s a little bit cheesy but that’s half the fun of celebrating Valentine’s day. Not only that but a lot of the designs you can find are stylish enough that you probably shouldn’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to start wearing them in your day to day life as well.
Everyone needs tools; it’s something of an unwritten law! Why not take advantage of the holiday and encourage your partner to get you a tool you’ve had your eye on for a while? Perhaps there’s a project you’ve been planning for a while or a piece of home improvement that you’ve been putting off for too long? Either way, there are few gift ideas quite so useful for both you and your partner. They’ll probably be more than happy to have a handyman around the house.
We’re living in a bit of a golden age of gaming right now. If you were a big gamer in your younger days but fell out of love with it a bit, or life simply got in the way, then now is the time to jump back in. From the amazing graphical power of the PS4 to the retro nostalgia trip of the Nintendo Classic Mini, there’s never been a bigger selection for you to point your partner towards. Not only is it the perfect gift for you but it’s the kind of thing that you and your entire family can enjoy together.
Of course, the one piece of advice I can’t give you is how to go about hinting to your partner for the right gift. It’s up to you whether you want to just come out and say it, or if you want to be particularly subtle about it. Be careful though, it’s a tricky balance to strike! If you’re too subtle you might just end up with socks again!
