Know the Status of Your Relationship
If you are in an intimate relationship, whether that means married, engaged, living together for a while or just committed to each other without dating others, then just about everything is a possibility as a gift. This includes lingerie, silky boxers or any private-themed gifts. However, if it is a new relationship or even a long-term one, but it has not yet become intimate, then these kinds of gifts should be saved for another time.
Learn What He or She Likes
Make sure you know your paramour's favorite hobbies and likes. If you know this, it is much easier to find a gift that that warms the heart. If he's a big sports fan, apparel, sporting event tickets and team-related knickknacks will bring a smile to his face. If she likes to take long baths, a gift set of bath beads and bath soaps make for a luxurious gift. Instead of buying a premade gift basket, find out some of your sweetie's favorite things and put them in a nice gift box. Sweets, movie tickets, makeup (as long as you know what she uses) and trial-size perfumes are considerations for such a box.
