Customizing a gift for your lady

12 April 2012, 08:01 Philip Kithome

Gentlemen, knowing when to send flowers is almost as important as knowing when not to send them. There’s always a place and time for everything.

A large number of men take for granted the needs of their partners and most of the time just assume that she should be grateful that he bothered to go buying them flowers and even managed to pay extra to send them to her office.

Truth of the matter is that it’s not that simple. Through many observations, giving your potential, girlfriend or wife flowers, may not be the best gift after all.

Actually, come to think of it – a woman will appreciate a simple gift like a scented candle for Christmas.  All woman appreciate the fact that someone is thinking of them whether it’s just a sms or flowers sent to the office which is undoubtedly a great gesture. 

However, if everyone gets flowers, doesn’t the gesture then seem a bit predictable and generic? What if I am allergic to pollen?

Maybe the lady hate roses and love lilies and the man didn’t even bother to get to find this small but important detail, that bouquet of flowers will in such a case end up not serving the purpose it was intend for.

Therefore  gentlemen should always learn to customize their  gifts especially floral gifts, make it personal. Otherwise, the purpose of your gift maybe lost in translation.  Be original and most importantly, be genuine.
