No matter what the occasion is, getting your loved one a gift will always be sorely appreciated. Maybe this special someone has a birthday coming up, or maybe your anniversary is getting close. Or, it might just be a simple case of wanting to show just how much you love them, and just how much you care. And in case you ran out of ideas, you’re in luck. Below you can find some awesome august gift ideas for your significant other.
A surprise getaway
A surprise getaway can be just the thing you need to break you both out of your routines and get some old sparks going. Now, this may take some planning, like finding a weekend when they are free, while at the same time keeping it a surprise. You can go somewhere romantic, to the countryside, maybe a surprise flight to a nice island, or basically any place that has a beach. In fact, you don’t really have to leave England in order to have some quality time together. Go and find a nice little village in the country, spend a day or two there in bed, visting the local pubs, and watch movies and Netflix.
There is nothing wrong with buying stuff for your loved ones. As long as it’s under control, materialism doesn’t have to be so bad. However, an experience is something that is often quite a bit more valuable than a simple object. So, try to provide your partner with a special experience.
We already mentioned going on a retreat, travelling somewhere, but there are many experiences that aren’t centred on only travelling. For example, you can take your partner bungee jumping, or maybe pay for a round in an escape room. Skydiving can be very fun as well.
For all those people who are not so prone to adrenaline, you can organize a “day of culture”. Namely, save up some money, and buy tickets to as many galleries and exhibits you can for that day. Pay for the hack and lunch, and spend the entire day stress-free, enjoying some culture and art.
Do you know what’s the best thing about sweets? It’s the fact that everybody likes them. They are the perfect gift, you can rarely go wrong with a nice packet of chocolates. And if you want to make it extra special, there are many excellent chocolatiers in London you can choose from. Places that give you interesting options, fascinating decorative styles, or that maybe provide same day gift delivery in London(if you are in a hurry or if you’re forgetful). Couple that with some nice wine and a romantic evening at home, and you get the best gift ever.
Some small luxury items can really show just how much you appreciate your other half. For example, a nice watch can go a long way. Just remember to not buy whatever comes to mind first. Namely, maybe they prefer something sporty, rather than something elegant. Do they like minimalism, or do they prefer a watch that is flashy and a bit out there?
The same goes for jewellery. Find some pieces he or she would like – earrings, bracelets, cufflinks, a nice ring. Gauge their interest, think long and hard about what they truly like in their jewellery.
Perfume is always a good choice as well. A lovely fragrance will make them feel more confident and more attractive, no matter where they are.
Finally, maybe what you’re SO will truly appreciate is a gorgeous piece of art. A sculpture or a painting can truly make their day if they like such things.
A special meal
A restaurant will always be sorely appreciated and approved of. Make it a surprise, dress up, and inform them of the nice meal they are going to have. It doesn’t even have to be fancy, just the fact that you can both have a nice meal in peace, without worrying about dishes or cooking can do wonders for your relationship.
However, if you are so inclined, make them a meal yourself. Get off work early, or maybe send them on some errand and surprise them with their favourite dish. If you really want to go all out, you can even learn how to prepare a very special meal in secret. Read up about it, maybe make it once or twice, just for a test drive, and then surprise them when you are confident in your skills.
And there you have it boys and girls, a couple of special gift ideas you can give to the most important person in your life. Whether it’s a simple home-cooked meal after a long day, or a weekend at a fancy resort, we are certain your loved ones will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
