Gifts girls really want for Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s Day again! That time of year couples show each other love leaving all the single folks in the dust. Just kidding. We’re Strong Independent Women who don’t need no men, right?

Regardless, a lot of talk has been going around about how flowers and chocolates are rather pointless especially now that there are just so many other things girls want in their lives. Here’s a list of what girls really want for Valentine’s Day.
A lot of food

Who cares about flowers? Chicken is where it’s at. If you’re at a loss at what to get for her, go the safest route and buy her a big fancy dinner!
Eat and not get fat

A wedding against the white and blue backdrop of Santorini sounds great and all, but what every (okay fine, most – some really lucked out in the metabolism department) girl wants is to eat and not get fat. If you’re more than three months into the relationship, you’d realise that the girl with bird-like eating habits is a complete and utter myth. And if you did get her that large meal mentioned above, she would’ve polished it off then get angry with you after for feeding her too much (or maybe I’m just projecting myself onto others here).
Unless you have friends in very high places, though, getting her this ability is rather tough. But we’d give you some suggestions.
Read carefully if you don’t want to get slapped: 1. Buy it for her only if she wants it OR 2. Buy a gym membership for the both of you and suggest it as a weekly couple activity! You can’t give her a higher metabolism naturally but you can make the work seem like fun.
Slimming treatments that work
Approach this delicately: it’s not that she’s fat, but since she thinks she’s fat, you decided to get the gift to end all such arguments. Forget detox teas, get her something that would reduce fat permanently with no effort on her part (but also non-surgical) like a Lipo Light or Coolsculpting treatment.
As famous Instagram Husband Jeff Houghton once said, “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me. And a brick wall.” Since being a cute girl on Instagram is sought after, every girl needs a guy like Jeff. And a brick wall. Singapore, and most of the world really, has the brick walls covered, so what about the Instagram husbae??
Most guys are absolutely hopeless at taking photos, but a little goes a long way, so practice more! We’re sure your girl will appreciate it. There are other alternatives, of course. You could always get one of those new-fangled photo-taking drones so she can control the angle and comes in especially handy if she wants a photo or two with you. You could also get a photographer to follow you around – we hear it’s all the rage these days.
Less time spent on makeup
The only thing better than looking on point is getting more sleep, and that’s what you should give her!
No, we don’t mean you should do her makeup for her.
There are plenty of ways to save your girlfriend some time on her makeup. From eyebrow embroidery to eyelash extensions, there are many beauty innovations these days that can cut your girl’s makeup time in half or more. In fact, with eyebrow embroidery and eyelash extensions, she probably just needs foundation and lipstick before heading out! She could even skip the foundation if she’s confident about her complexion. If she’s not, get her a Laser Skin Quickie treatment as a cherry on top of her Makeup Hack Kit gift.
Girls (and boys too, we’d imagine) just want to feel great and be taken care of really, really well. Why not treat her to a total spa day involving a massage, facial, and a long bath complete with a hair scrub? You can even add in a manicure and pedicure session to sweeten it. If that sounds a little too heavy for your wallet, you can even do it yourself (but please practice) (and not on your other female friends)!
To look like their post-Meitu/Snapchat self

Ah, technology. Ain’t it great? You don’t even have to accept how you look like anymore with photoshopping apps like Meitu and the auto-filters on apps like Snapchat and Snow. Sadly, now that girls realise what they can look like with a slimmer face and bigger eyes and a smaller nose, they want to look like that all the time. Sadder still, the effect does not carry over to real life, prompting memes like:
If you want to ensure you can find her whenever she goes missing, there is a simple answer: fillers. Well. I guess you could teach her to love herself because you love her just the way she is too.
Endless source of wealth
If worst comes to worst and you really have no idea/time/opportunity to get something for her, shower her with tons and tons and tons of money. After all, girls just want to have fund$.
We guess if you reallyyyyyy want to, you can just get her flowers and chocolate, but we assure you, she’d prefer our suggestions more.
