“Guess what today is babe!”
“Uh, It's Tuesday.”
“....Are you serious?”
Nine times out of ten, this may have happened in your relationship at one point. He thinks it’s just another weekday and then he sees the love of his life and immediately knows he's forgetting something. He forgot to get his lady a gift for the anniversary of, you know, the time you both met...? That’s it - day officially ruined.
And don’t get us wrong: Women forget things all the time. From walking the dog, those dinner plans you made with your new friend from work, even the dirty dish with the regrettable chocolate cake slice from last night. But when it comes to special occasions in a relationship, we always seem to remember them without fail. And don’t think the anniversary of the first time you become official is the only occasion to celebrate. There is the anniversary of the first time you laid eyes on each other, the first kiss, and god help him if he forgets the first time you both said “I love you.”
Don’t Forget a Gift
When it comes to celebrating special occasions between lovers, a gift is essential. Exchanging gifts is the perfect way to express your love and adoration. 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.
Not Just For Her
A unique couples gift, or more commonly 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 best way to inspire affection between a loving couple. 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 t-shirts! Trust us, 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 beyond gag-worthy. A classy option is personalized boyfriend and girlfriend jewelry.
Jewelry Made For Two
No matter the occasion, whether it is an engraved bracelet, pair of earrings, or necklace will always excite the lady in your life. A necklace handpicked by her man shows purposeful thought and care. A personalized “his and her” necklace will show your investment (and not just financially) and lasting commitment to your 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 Signature Heart Bracelet if you're looking to wear your heart on your sleeve.
But He Doesn’t Like Jewelry
Not every man wears jewelry or can pull off the look. A “couple necklace” just for her is the perfect option for the boyfriend who doesn’t wear jewelry. Engrave a necklace with your names or initials two initials to create the personalized gift she will love as much as her partner. For a creative gift idea she will love, personalize a name necklace with the pet name only you call her (as long as it’s not too awkward). Expect a reaction of surprise and sentiment when presenting to her a sparkling accessory personalized for the two of you.
