52 Reasons I Love You Deck of Cards: Sweet Apology

This deck of cards isn’t to win a game of poker, but they are an adorable way to win her over. We know you have 52 reasons you love her! Write each one on a card, and put them together like a small booklet for a nice and sweet “I’m sorry.”

Via Pinterest Addict

“Open When…” Letters: “In it For The Long Haul” Apology

This apology says, “I’m in it for the long haul.” Write 5-10 letters that each have “Open when…[your choice]” on the envelope. Inside, each letter has a sweet and comforting note. This way, it isn’t a one-time gift.  This one will last!

TGI Ideas: “Open when….you’re having a bad day…you’re stressed….you’re happy for no reason….you’re exhausted.” These are only a few ideas, and we know you’ll come up with many more!

Via Up To No Good

Date Night Basket: “I Truly Care” Apology

You know this needs to be fixed right now. Fill a box (neatly) with a few romantic items and include a note with an apology. This is an “I’m sorry” that shows you truly care!

TGI’s Perfect Date Night Box: A bottle of wine, a box of dark chocolate, any chick flick or drama and..if it’s really bad, a rose would be nice too!

Via Card Store

All About You Basket: “I Didn’t Mean To Be Selfish” Apology

This basket says a selfless “I’m sorry.” Fill it with small items where you can write a matching complement using a play on words. For example, a flashlight with a note that says “you light up my life” is perfect to show her how much she means to you. Another one of our favorites is “You’re my sweetheart” attached to a bag of candy Sweetarts (Sweet Tarts). This will make her laugh and lighten up the mood!

Via The Dating Divas

With these gifts, we guarantee you will be forgiven in no time! However, we aren’t positive this will work the second time around! Happy gifting!

TGI Tips: How to Find a Great Gift For Your Girlfriend This Sweetest Day

HomepageGiftsforLadies2

 

 

Q. How Can I Make It Special Without Spending a Fortune? 

A. Personalize it.  Give a photo gift, a monogrammed gift or something you’ve made yourself.  Thoughtfulness means more than extravagance.

Q. Do I Ask Her What She Wants? 

A. Some ladies know what they want, and they’ll be happy to tell you.  If you want to keep a little mystery, agree to go shopping with her on a sat and just keep your eye out for things she gravitates to. Or browse her Pinterest page.

Q. Should I go big in the beginning?

A. No! Don’t set the bar too high for what you can actually afford, it will only kick ya in the butt in the end.  Save the expensive jewelry and expensive purses for big milestones and for when you really get to know her taste. Browse some ideas for $100 and under gifts.

We have some other great tips on our What Women Want page on our latest blog post, 12 Romantic Gift Ideas Your Girlfriend Will Actually Want and a whole slew of ideas in our Girlfriend Gift Ideas category. Good luck and feel free to tweet us or comment on out FB page any specific q’s you have.

Happy Gifting!
