Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Women

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic holiday of the year, so it is important for your lady love to know that you care for her with all your heart on this day.

If you can afford an expensive gift, a dinner at your favourite restaurant (perhaps the place where you proposed or got married or had some other significant occasion) would be special. Or you could take her to a romantic destination for a few days or on a short cruise or to see a play or concert that everyone is raving about.

If your desire is to buy her something personal that she will enjoy, in addition to the always-appreciated jewellery or flowers or candy or beauty products or perfume, you can either buy her a negligee or lingerie or give her a gift card to pick the gift out herself. You can take her there to try the items on for you to see and approve, too. You could also treat her to a visit at the spa or beauty parlour.

If she has a special collection, that makes it easy if all you need to do is look for an unusual angel or whatever item she most enjoys. Perhaps she has a favourite colour, and that creates a wide variety of ideas since you can go into a store and look around for that colour in all the different departments.

If she has a hobby, that, too, makes it easy whether she’s a golfer, plays tennis, bowls, dances, does handicrafts, works puzzles, or has mentioned wanting a new book by a favourite author. You could present her with a book of poems and read them to her.

Does she like to cook and bake? That opens the gift buying up tremendously as there are so many presents for all prices that you can find in a store devoted to that type of item or in the housewares section of her favourite department store.

If she works, go to an office supplies store and look around. You will get ideas for gifts in all price ranges depending on what you know she’s been needing whether it is a computer accessory, a new briefcase, a picture frame for her desk in which she can put the new family picture, etc.

The main way to find out what your sweetie wants is to listen ahead of time to what she has to say or what she mentions needing as she works in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, office, or is out with you window shopping in stores. Your buying her something that she has talked about wanting will make her know that you pay attention to her desires and will make you dear to her heart.

Cold snap turns up the heat for online romance

Warm hearts are winning out over cold feet as online dating sites report a huge increase of daytime visitors as people look for romance to fill their time off work.

Singles are turning on their computers instead of daytime TV as two of the dating sites with the most traffic found more people were logging in for love at 3pm rather than the usual busy time of 10pm.

Singles break the ice looking for love

Mysinglefriend.com says web site visits were up 55% on one afternoon, while Singles365.com says visitors were up by more than 25% on the same days last year.

January tends to be busy online as many people make a New Year resolution to find some romance.

TV property developer Sarah Beeny, founder of Mysinglefriend.com, says the snow was “proving to be an icebreaker for singles out there”.

“January has always been our busiest month, but this surge in traffic is unprecedented.”

The big increase in people using dating websites comes at a time when the industry is already booming.

Online dating set to generate £368 million

Forrester Research predicts the number of Britons paying to use online dating agencies is set to grow from 2.6 million people in 2006 to six million by 2012, creating revenues of around £368 million.

This surge is put down to more computer literate adults, the stigma attached to belonging to dating agencies has gone away, and the ease of joining up online makes people more comfortable and confident to take the plunge.

Less traditional dating websites also report more business during the cold snap.

IllicitEncounters.com – a web site for married people to look for an affair – says a record number of new members have joined – mainly from areas worst hit by the weather.

The firm says that in just under a week, 2,567 new members, 37% more than usual, signed up and as a result has needed to take on additional staff to cope with the rush.
