Valentines Day. The infamous hallmark holiday that you only really like when you have someone to spend it with and sometimes not even then. There's this stigma that says you have to go all out on Valentine's Day and spend loads of money.
Well, I'm here to tell you that you don't have to do that with every girl. You see, I'm what they call a “low maintenance" girl and I agree with that. That also means I'm very easy to please. I don't need a dozen roses or diamonds, I just want something that shows me you care.
So, here are some gifts you can give a low maintenance girl like me:
I don't mean at some fancy restaurant, either. I mean a home-cooked meal. You don't have to spend a ton of money when I much rather sit home and have a nice meal with you.
Okay, so I know this is more of a girl thing, but guys, girls will melt at your feet if you do this. I know it's sappy and not manly but it's romantic and a nice way to show your love.
Something simple with a personal message and maybe a single rose to go with it.
4. A foot rub/back rub
Now, personally I haven't gotten one of these, but my mom swears by them and it's a nice gesture.
5. A movie night
I love movie nights. My boyfriend and I have them all the time. It's a romantic gesture and you get cuddles as a plus.
6. A walk in the park/the beach
Especially at sunset and if the weather is right, this is a nice thought.
7. Bubble bath
A nice hot romantic bath to make all the stresses go away.
8. Do something nice
Clean the house, take out the trash, walk the dog. Do something you normally wouldn't to surprise her.
9. Dance night
If you have a girl that likes to dance, make a playlist, move the table, and make a dance floor.
Maybe before that walk in the park or walk on the beach you can plan a picnic there first and pack all her favorites.
These are easy and cheap gifts that any low maintenance girl like myself would love. However, that being said, if you find yourself alone, ladies, this Valentine's day, don't fret. You don't need a man to celebrate. Make yourself a bubble bath, drink some wine, or go to the spa. You can still be happy loving yourself on the day meant for love.
