Marriage is a very important part of anybody’s life. It is also one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make. Years down the line, when you are happily married, in some quiet moment of your life, both of you are bound to look back at younger days, when the love was young. Happy memories from your time of engagement will definitely bring a smile to the face of your wife and draw emotions from a deep well of feelings and fondness.
Gifts are a beautiful way to show love. They are also extremely memorable and show how much you know and understand your partner. A good gift requires thought and familiarity with the other person’s taste and likings.
Sometimes words are not enough to express your love for your fiancee, for those moments, meaningful gifts will do the rightful, and make love out of nothing at all.
Choosing a gift though is a different ball game altogether. Some of us have a hard time choosing, not because we don’t know our partners well enough, but because we are spoilt for choice.
You don’t have to worry anymore.
Here is a choice of 5 gifts, which combined with your love, affection and attention will create memories that will last a lifetime.
1. Handwritten Letters
Letters, though a medium of communication, have come to be the language of lovers.
“Writing to someone, taking the time to craft each letter, to buy a stamp, to select an envelope, to travel to the post office—none of this goes unnoticed. A letter, before the content is even read, has already said, ‘I care about you. You’re someone special.”
Lovers have always found recourse in the written word more than others. It is a place where your soul connects through the paper and when your lover reads the letter they don’t see just words, they see your heart. Unlike text messages or emails, there is a certain honesty in the words and feelings those words express. Write letters to your fiancee and pour your heart out. Many years down the line she will perhaps take out an old box from her attic and find scores of letters written by you and her heart will fill with love and memory and nostalgia of the yesteryears.
Though most modern women are not the biggest fan of jewellery or the traditional values it is said to have, aesthetic value has come to be the only value associated with jewellery. Some women though have a special emotional tryst with jewellery. Jewellery can be a good gift because after all “A Diamond is Forever” and can be a metaphor for the endless and undying love and companionship the two of you are going to share. Daily wear jewellery is a great gift, something your fiance can wear to work or parties, something that will remind her of you.
3. Personalised photo frame
If the both of you have known each other for a long time and travelled a long road with pit stops at friendship, lovers and now engagement, you will have had a lot of sweet memories that the both of you have built; the first meeting, the first smile, the first kiss and the list goes on.
A personalised photo frame is a perfect way to capture those days in a frame. Choose from memories that are significant in your life and this will definitely make her giddy or blush.
4. De-stress kit
We all have stress in our life. It might be work or even our daily responsibilities. If something is bogging the love of your life down, gift her a de-stress kit. The importance of mental wellbeing is unparalleled in this modern socio-industrial complex. You can definitely be a support system for her. Help her, be there for her, motivate her and to show that you care send her a de-stress kit that will relax her body and mind, and prepare her for days of slogging.
5. Long drive
Long drives are a bonding experience. In this author’s candid opinion, long drives bring you closer to your loved one. There is nothing as peaceful as nature and nothing as tempting as the open road. The roar of the car engine and the wind in her hair is perhaps a scene from a Nancy Mayers novel. Enjoy a beautiful road and a vermilion sky set ablaze by the last rays of the sleeping sun.
If she is your fiancee and she is definitely a great lady then you should do all that you can to make her happy and show her how special and important she is. Love and its labour is the stuff of legends. Wars have been fought over love. It is of utmost importance to show your lady how much she means to you. You need to show your effort and you need to show how much you care. Gifting is only one aspect of showing your love. Simple gestures, kind words and acts of kindness can go a long way. Love comes in any form you can dream of.
If this is a long-distance relationship then you need to put in the special effort. Send her gifts anywhere in the world and if you are an NRI missing your fiance in India; call her, send her letters or send flowers to India using the website giftstoindia24x7.com. No step is small and your gestures will be appreciated as a token of your love. It is always important to make you’re beloved feel special.
“There is no better life than a life spent labouring at love—exerting effort not because we have to, but because we believe that what we are bringing into being is valuable and we want it to exist.”
― Moira Weigel, Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating
Love like the world ends tonight because love is beautiful and your lady deserves all the love in the world.
