Gifts that Say 'I Love You' (No Gushing)
Buying a gift for your boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse or partner can be like stepping onto a minefield. If last year’s Christmas gifts of socks and wrinkle cream went down like a lead balloon, there is no better way to redeem yourself by showing your love for that special person. A fun and original way to go about it is finding a gift which declares your feelings just the way you want it to.
A gift that cuts out the gooey, overstated love declarations is the Treat Him 'You’re My Cup of Tea' mug from this website. It’s cute, quirky and simple, and it will show your guy how much you love him every time he uses it (especially handy when you're having a snarky day - the mug will be nice when you can't be!). At £9.99, it’s the ideal gift for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or Christmas.
If you’re in search of a perfect gift for him with a playful edge, the Treat Him Personalised Angel & Devil Pillowcase is a great choice. Each night he can let you know whether he’s feeling angelic or devilish before bedtime (you may never see the 'Angel' side), and you can have your name printed on it, up to 12 characters. The name is printed on both sides, but Treat Him can arrange for you to have one each with your own names on if you want. It’s a great flirty present which can add a bit more fun and excitement to the bedroom, priced at £12.99. While particularly perfect for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, the pillow could also make a brilliant Christmas or birthday present.
There are some who are totally suckers for romance and they will go out of their way to ensure that the one they love feels that love every single day. Treat Her have created a brilliantly romantic present that any woman would fall head over heels for: A Year of Kisses, available at £159.99. For any guy who is in love with a chocolate-loving girl, this gift at Treat Her Website will most definitely earn him brownie points. 365 milk chocolate kisses in the shape of lips, one for each day of the year, are specially wrapped in a red satin-lined box with a white bow, acting as a constant reminder that you are always thinking of her. The box also includes a story card to explain your gift. A Year of Kisses is an especially wonderful choice for anyone who works away from home and cannot kiss the one they love each day. It reminded me of all the Army Wives waiting for their partners to return home from fighting abroad. For any couple in such a situation, this could be a way of bringing them closer together in a small yet significant way.
