When I opened my first restaurant, I realized that the food needed to be impeccable. Instead of worrying about food costs, I zeroed in on the best vendors and gave them my business. The rewards were incredible. Customers absolutely loved the food, and they just kept coming back. Five years later, my business is running strong, and I owe it all to those initial business relationships with vendors. Check out this blog to learn why food vendors are so important, and how to choose between multiple businesses. You never know, it could transform your restaurant for the better--so that you can protect your investment.
Celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or holiday with the special woman in your life is all about showing her how much you care. Choosing the perfect romantic gift for the occasion will let her know how much she means to you.
You could just buy her a gift card or ask her what she wants, but that certainly isn't very romantic. Taking some time to select the perfect gift will be worth it when you see the expression of joy on her face.
A weekend getaway
You can't go wrong when you plan a few days away together. The fact that you took the time to make all of the arrangements and travel plans will earn you extra points in the romance department. Make it even more special by keeping the location a surprise until you arrive.
If you have children, don't forget to make arrangements for the kids to spend the weekend with friends or family.
A wine gift basket
Wine and romance go hand in hand. A lovely basket with a few bottles of wine and some specialty food items will win her heart. Look for baskets containing fine wine, gourmet cheeses, fruits, summer sausages, and gourmet pretzels or crackers.
If she loves to cook, you may want to choose a wine gift basket that contains red wine, dried pasta, tomato sauce, a wooden spoon, and a block of aged parmesan cheese. Instead of the typical basket, a colander could be used to hold the items.
A pair of beautiful long-stemmed wine glasses will make a perfect companion to go along with your wine gift basket. Talk to a professional like Sand Castle Winery to get your wine basket put together.
A day spa visit
A gift card for a day spa visit is one example of a gift card that is still romantic. Many spas offer day sessions for a complete treatment regimen. These often include several massages, a manicure, and a pedicure. Some spas have salons and the package deal includes a shampoo, cut, and hair styling.
You could also inquire about a couples massage. Most spas offer these special treatment sessions where couples can enjoy a massage together in the same room.
Romancing her on a budget
Creating a romantic gift doesn't have to be expensive. What could be more romantic than a gift straight from the heart? Write her a poem or a letter. Don't worry if you're not good with words. Poems don't have to rhyme. Simply write what is on your heart and write about how much she means to you.
If desired, you can type the poem or letter and frame it before presenting it to her.
Make her a nice dinner at home. Don't forget to play her favorite music and add some candles to the table. After dinner, draw a hot bubble bath for her complete with candlelight and soft music.
Again, if you have children, make arrangements beforehand for the kids to spend a few hours with friends or family.
Birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays are memory making occasions. When you take the time to choose the perfect romantic gift for the special woman in your life, you will be helping to create memories she will treasure for a lifetime.Share
