REady for Valentines Day?

Valentine’s Day: Take action before 14th February to avoid any discontent!

We thought we would put this little piece together because there may be some of you at a lost as to what to do or what to get your lovely ladies on Valentines Day. If you are not in this category, we apologise and are glad to know you have the matter fully under control.

So how do you choose what is right for the lady and right for the day. Well the first thing that should be obvious is that this is a time for expressing love and affection. Translated, for the lady this means romance.  You need to show her that you care, or at the very least that she is appreciated. Whatever you do, do not ask her what she wants, because it is the fact that you thought about what to get that is important here. Asking would render the whole gesture meaningless, what you are aiming at achieving is delivering something that is personal from you and personal to her.

So to give you a little helping hand, we looked around at some of the options you might like to consider, so let’s swing these ideas by you.

You generally can’t go wrong with chocolate. Of course, not every lady wants chocolates all the time but most women like it.  However, this chocolate offering is a little more special, available from John Lewis.

No long term plans for the relationship…

The other nice thing about chocolate, is that even if the relationship you are in, is not one you have any long term vision for, chocolate works as a great token gesture of appreciation. Don’t give her nothing, that would be hurtful and she would be offended.

You can’t go wrong if you say it with chocolate
