5 Tips for Valentine’s Day [4 the fellas]

love-u-valentines-day-19080940-1024-768

We are all aware that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday. Not to mention, this holiday is definitely more geared toward women. Regardless of what we might think of the holiday, it’s not going anywhere. It’s here to stay. Now, I know there are a lot of men who are scrambling, trying to get things in order to show their woman that they get it. So, I’ve decided to help those who are hopeless, and don’t get it. Below, I’ve outlined 5 Tips for Valentine’s Day.


roses1. Flowers & Card

If you don’t do anything else, please send/give flowers to your woman. Nothing says “I love you” like a nice bouquet of  red roses, and a card from the heart. For those who aren’t in-love just yet, send/give pink roses instead. I personally don’t know a woman who doesn’t like flowers, or reading a card that is sentimental. This will be the setup for whatever else you have planned for your lady.

2. The Gift gift

The gift(s) you choose are very important. The gift will show how much thought you put into making sure you’re woman is happy. Fellas, do not, I repeat, do not, get your woman a practical gift. Get her something she wants, not needs. If you were thinking about buying her a coffee maker or a pot set, forget about it; unless she specifically requests something practical. Gift baskets, spa treatments, and jewelry always make great gifts. However, you know what your woman likes. So, get something you know will make her happy. And no, it doesn’t have to be super expensive.

3. Plans picnic

Do something memorable. That’s what these Hallmark holidays are about. Don’t just settle for the old dinner and a movie Valentine’s Day. There are so many things you two can do; try something new. Depending on your budget, you can go on a helicopter ride, or setup a picnic in the park. Whatever you decide, you should try to top the plans you had last Valentine’s Day.

4. Look the Part idris

This should come as a no-brainier. Fellas, when it’s time to go out, make sure you look dapper. I know a lot of women like when their men make a point to look good for them. Whether it be a fresh haircut, or a nice shirt, do come dressed to impress (your woman that is). You already know that your woman is going to look fly, so make sure you do too.

5. Show emotion hands

While, gifts, flowers, and cards are all very nice things. Nothing tops off a romantic evening like passion and heartfelt gestures. I’m not saying you should be a total sap, but you should express your feelings through words, and physical gestures, like hugs and kisses. Little compliments go along way. Trust me on this guys!

Follow these 5 Tips, and you will not fail this Valentine’s Day! Who knows; you might even get lucky. 😉

***NOTE: I know some of you may have just started dating the woman who you’re with. Please don’t think that you should skip out on spoiling your woman on Valentine’s Day. I’m not saying that you have to be as elaborate on your first Valentine’s Day together as you would on your 5th. However, you should do something that is memorable, and shows that you look forward to your future together.

Here’s a couple of links to give you ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts and dates.

FOW

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the Fit Of the Week. I like this look, again, because I so comfortable. I fell in love with this shirt the moment I tried it on, and I like to pair it with things you wouldn’t normally see. That’s exactly what I did here. I am really into colored jeans that are flattering of course. Since, I am able to wear them to work, I definitely stray away from colors that are too bright and look child-like. I love these boots! I actually have them in black as well. Cognac or camel, whatever you want to call it, can be paired with a lot of colors, and different styles.

Fit of the Week (FOW)

For those who know me, it is a known fact that I have a shoe fetish! I LOVE shoes!!! My favorite style is the wedge heel. For me, they are the most comfortable and are a lot easier to walk in. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’ve been dying to wear the wedges featured in the picture below. I have been looking for an orange pair of wedges, and I am too happy that I finally found what I was looking for. This particular color can be worn in the spring, summer and fall. I don’t think this is a winter color, but to each his or her own. These wedges have a mustard sole that can be seen at the peep-hole. I really like the color mustard, so that was definitely an added bonus. I love this outfit because I am completely comfortable, and it captures my personality.
