Being in a relationship is by far one of the most happy and emotionally satisfying phases of a person’s life. No doubt other bonds and relationships are important and provide the much required support one needs, the bond that you share with your girl friend or boyfriend is different. You get the companionship you crave and have someone to share the ups and downs of your life with.
But relationships are more than just about being together. They are also about achieving different milestones together and celebrating each of them. Whether it is either of your birthdays, your anniversary, Valentine’s Day or any other. One important aspect of every relationship is gifting.
As much as you may say that gifts do not matter, they do. You can impress your girlfriend with a thoughtful gift or be ready for the consequences. Shopping for a gift especially for your loved ones is often considered a challenge. And so here are a few pointers to bear in mind while shopping:
Start Beforehand: You are hugely mistaken if you think you’ll shop for a gift at the end moment. Planning ahead is like a thumb rule. There may be many things that she likes only from a particular place or of a peculiar kind that might be tough to shop at the end moment.
Keep your ears open: Very often girls drop subtle hints about things that they like or would want to shop for soon. Listen to these hints very carefully.
Shop practically but not too practically: She might be planning on shopping for a pan or pot, does not mean she will be thrilled at receiving it on her birthday. Shop for a gift that will might use or need, and not something that just sits in the corner of her cupboard.
Shopping for the right size: If planning on gifting clothes, try not to goof up the size. Check her size on sly, and buy accordingly. Or at least make sure you have a valid exchange policy on the clothes you buy.
Shop at stores that provide exchange policy: In case your gift isn’t as big a surprise for her, or if she doesn’t like it too much, always leave that window open.
Shopping isn’t something that is easy for all. Worst is when it is someone you love. Follow these tips and improve your odds of being better at the relationship.
