Right now at this precise moment in time, in cities all across America, a large percentage of the male population are simultaneously wondering "What should I get my girlfriend this year for Valentine's day?" You can play it safe and stick with the traditional gifts of long stemmed red roses and a box of Godiva assorted chocolates - which in fact, seldom can you go wrong with those two choices, unless by chance your girlfriend is allergic to flowers or happens to dislike chocolate. But if you're thinking that this year you might want to give her something slightly different than previous Valentine's Days, then why not consider something a little more personal and choose a gift that really says I love you. Here's a few ideas that are sure to be a hit:
Jewelry. We may hate to admit it, but all women love to open tiny boxes on Valentine's Day. That little box can contain something as classic as diamond stud earrings or a more modern piece like a diamond cuff bracelet. We don't care what it is as long as it comes in a little package and has a big bow wrapped around it! For those of you new to this game keep in mind that some women keep score and that by presenting her with a box sporting a Hyde Park, John Atencio or Tiffany & Co. logo you have just elevated yourself to the very top tier on the jewelry gift scale.
A Romantic Night Out. Take her to the ballet, the symphony, or to the theatre. If she's an art lover and enjoys experiencing the creative side of Denver take her to check out a local gallery. The Denver Art Museum even offers two for one tickets every Friday night during the entire month of February. Complete the night with dinner for the two of you at her favorite restaurant.
A Day at the Spa. Most women love to be pampered, and there's no better way to show the woman you love how much she means to you than by treating her to a day at a luxurious spa. Our Mile High city has many to choose from and here is just a sampling of some of the best rated spas in the Denver area:
