found in Lifestyle beauty articles


Because every year on Valentine's Day I have the feeling I choose the wrong present for my wife I decided this year to conduct a simple survey on this.
Thanks to my "subjects", my bellowed colleagues and friends, I've got this list with 41 entries for women and 10 for men.
You can read the "What women want for Valentine's Day" and
"What men want for Valentine's Day" lists below and then let's sum up a little bit.

It is mandatory to bring flowers and not less important to reserve a table to a fancy restaurant (I doubt a cheap dinner will be considered "romantic dinner"). This way you'll perform well enough and wouldn't spend the next 3 weeks begging for forgiveness.

The cherry on top is, nevertheless, a piece of jewelry, probably most desired as the price goes higher. A less expensive alternative, as good as jewelry, is a good perfume. Worst case scenario you can choose some stuffed toys, a trip or a CD.

On the other hand, for a men best gift can be a beer as well as an electronic device.

When it comes about our expectations, most women get "a kiss", "flowers" or, much worst, NOITHING. Men know they will receive sweets, romantic dinners or, best of all, a beer in a pub.

I do not intend to give any advice, but I truly think we should not let this day pass by.

Much love and best Valentine's Day ever,
