You don’t want to spend thousands of dollars to impress a girl. Just a small, thoughtful gift will do the job.
A user asked the forum, “Girls, what small gifts would make your heart melt?”. Here are the top responses.
FLOWER AND A HANDWRITTEN NOTE
“A single flower (preferably stolen from a neighbor’s front garden), a short handwritten note, and your social security number.”
HAND CRANK MUSIC BOX
“My husband got me a small hand crank music box that I casually mentioned I liked while window shopping the prior year. The fact that he cared so much to remember that specific music box meant so much and made me cry.”
“I love wearing worn hoodies and receiving gifts when I least expect it.”
MAKING A DISH OR A MEAL
“An ex-boyfriend once learned to make a dish from my culture that he isn’t from. It wasn’t even the easiest thing to cook; honestly, it was the sweetest thing anyone had ever done for me.
I didn’t want any other gift after that; that was enough.”
“Music. If someone buys me a song I like on a phone or sends me a gift card, I love it. That kind of gift will last a long time, and while it may hurt after a breakup, it shows just how much the other person cares about you, that they pick something you will cherish more than its value.”
” I enjoy receiving something handmade or snacks that I like.”
“Baked goods. Especially when someone bakes it for you.”
“A stuffed animal or something small I could carry around is a great gift.”
“Mostly food; give me a donut or my favorite pizza, and my heart will melt like butter on a hot day.”
CARDS AND CHOCOLATE
“When I was in college, my boyfriend bought me a card and some chocolate, and he cleaned my room while I was in class. It was the best small gift I’ve ever been given.
SOCKS AND NAIL POLISH
“Fuzzy socks and nail polish in a color he likes; that way, whenever I use it, it’ll make him a little bit happy, too!”
“Something thoughtful. It could be a cozy blanket for cold winter evenings, a small piece of jewelry (it does not have to be expensive), a good book, food, little handwritten notes, a playlist made for me, and your sweater (assuming you’re my boyfriend). I could go on for ages writing about these ideas.
“While it’s not something you can buy, my heart would melt if a guy would surprise me with a Play Station 1 gaming date.”
“Bath stuff. I love fancy soaps, bath bombs, lotions, scrubs, and salt soaks. It’s saying, ‘Please take some time for yourself and pamper yourself.'”
BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES OR EXPERIENCES
“A beautiful memory I will never forget. It could be a funny joke or a nice dinner where we got to know each other so well, maybe that one time we cried laughing or when you sang the song you wrote about me.
I don’t want anything to hold in my hands. Give me experiences and memories that will make me smile when I think about them 50 years from now.”
A CALENDAR OF DOG PICTURES
“It would be amazing for a boy to remember me saying something like, ‘I adore dogs’ and get me a calendar of dog pictures.
I don’t expect much, but I know that he is paying attention to what I say and listening, and doing something sentimental makes me melt like ice cream in Arizona’s summer.”
PEN OR A SKETCHBOOK
“Getting a pen/sketchbook. I’m a passionate artist. I’d like it if you gave me both.
