Getting gifts during a holiday, like Valentine's Day, is always nice (and hopefully appreciated).
However, it's the non-holiday days of the year when we receive a little something that really can bring those magic, filled-with-intimacy moments. It takes you back to those nostalgic 'newbie days' when you wrote each other love notes, endless emails and texts, and bought cards and gifts to express your love.
Let's be clear: a gift does not automatically equal sex. Rather it's the thought you put into the gift that get's the ear-to-ear smile, that then creates the intimacy, that can get you a little something.
Buying presents doesn't have to be a big and expensive ordeal. Small gifts are just as good.
Here are some 'girly' ideas to get you started. Buy or make three small gifts
(1) one gift is to nourish the mind
(2) another to nurture the body
(3) the last one to warm the heart
Your gifts can include: their favorite magazine or book; a favorite chocolate; or a CD of their favorite music.
Wrap each one individually and present the gifts to her over dinner. Even better surprise your lover.
More important than the gifts themselves: Tell them why you chose each gift as they unwrap each one.
