Picking out a creative, meaningful gift is only half the task. Presenting your Valentine's Day present is another bouquet of roses. Here are a few guidelines for a smooth presentation.
Things You'll Need
- Greeting Cards
- Boxes Of Chocolates
- Ball Game Tickets
- Massage Gift Certificates
Determine what your boyfriend's gift-related expectations are for Valentine's Day. If he loves the hype surrounding the day dedicated to love, think about an elaborate presentation - perhaps design a treasure map or riddle that will lead him to his gift. If he considers the day just another display of rampant consumerism, present your gift (preferably handmade) in a low-key way.
Choose a gift that won't make him panic when he sees it, meaning one box that has an unassuming, nonaggressive size. If he sees eight regally wrapped boxes stacked one upon the other, he'll surely become insecure about his one modest gift to you.
Consider asking what he'd like for Valentine's Day to give him a hint that you're planning on giving him something, especially if you're new to the relationship and aren't exactly sure how the two of you might celebrate the day.
Plan an unconventional present, say, a singing valentine sent to his workplace or a surprise lunch at that restaurant he's been dying to try.
Invite your boyfriend over for Champagne before you celebrate the evening. Give your present after you toast your love.
