It’s the season again for flowers and chocolates and perfume. Those at least are the cliché gifts of Valentine’s Day, and while you might pass on the chocolate and flowers for the umpteenth time if you’re getting married soon you should definitely consider perfume. Perfume is absolutely one of the best gifts for a bride-to-be, and I’m going to tell you exactly why.
I’ve written about this before, but it’s helpful to bring it up again because I think it is that important. You simply pick out a new fragrance that you really like and drop some handy hints that that’s what you would like for Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect holiday to make such a purchase because often there are lots of fragrance deals at department stores (you might end up with a tote bag, too!) and it kills two birds with one stone. You get a really nice gift for Valentine’s Day, and you also check something off your wedding supplies list. Easy.
Oh, but the benefits don’t stop there. The real beauty of this gift is that you can’t use it until your wedding day. That doesn’t seem so fun, but trust me. Wear it on your big day and wear it on your honeymoon and then set it aside for a few months. Then, maybe for a special occasion or maybe for no reason at all, wear it again. Here is the magical part. As soon as you spritz it into the air you’ll instantly be reminded of your special day. Even better, you’re spouse will be reminded of it, too. They might not even realize why these wonderful memories have come flooding back, but you’ll know. You’ll know that you have been able to brilliantly tie a specific scent to a very precious memory and that years and years later you will still be able to. That’s so smart, they’ll say.
Aren’t you so smart?
Happy Valentine’s Day
