Valentine’s, gentlemen, what do we know? Here are the facts. In the third century, a gentleman named Valentin
apparently is martyred, and he is buried on February 14th in Northern Italy. Two centuries later, he’s made a saint. In the 14th century, Geoffrey Chaucer used
poetry and associated Valentine’s Day with love. And then, in the 18th century, what we see
started to happen gifts, people are giving each other love letters, aka Valentine’s, and we
see the tradition start. Gentlemen, those are the facts. Why does this matter? Because Valentine’s Day is here to stay,
you might as well crush this holiday, and that’s what I’ve got for you. Five gifts you can give her to make sure that
you get lucky. Gift idea number one, flowers, and I know
you’ve heard that one before; you sound pretty obvious. But, how are you giving the flowers? What’s the thought that’s going into them? Did you actually research and figure out which
flowers are her favorite, or did you happen to grab something on the way home? Did you think through this? Did you look at the presentation? Did you maybe spend a little bit more? Maybe
time may be money, but you actually put together a great presentation? I know one time I gave a gift of roses, actually
had them wrapped in a really nice luxurious type of fabric, it just put the level up, and
it’s those small details.
Another one is that you can give somebody flowers
or say, you know, I’m giving you these nine white roses because I remember the first
time I met you that you love the color of this particular type of rose, nine roses
signify eternal love. Now, you say it’s a totally
different presentation to a woman than if you give her the flowers. So, gift idea number two, gentlemen, upgrade a
practical tool that she’s already using. So, I love this one because she’s already
shown a history of using this, so you know you will get your money’s worth. But you’ve got to be careful. This one can
come off as very unromantic.
So, you can’t give her a brand new dishwasher
and say, hey, honey, I hope you use this more. Good luck on that, guys, because you’ll end up in a dog’s house. No, take a step back and look at something
that if you gave her a luxury version of it and you present it in a way, maybe with some
of the other items I’m going to talk about, it would come off as like, wow, this is great,
I’ve wanted this.
That is one of the best gifts I think you
can give just because she’s going to use it again and again throughout the year and get
a lot of value out of it, which brings me to the sponsor of today’s video, Amope, and they’re
Pedi perfect. Guys, I am excited about this because
my wife, so she uses a callus shaver and a callus file, and I know when I saw this, this
company reached out to me because this is a paid sponsorship. I was like, I’m going to easily talk about
this because I will give this to my wife, and I tested this on myself. Guys, these things work. They’re really cool, and basically, it’s got
a file. Yes, you can hear the noise right there. But, this film goes along, and it removes the
calluses from your feet.
It’s a handy tool for anyone who has suffered from this, so definitely go check it out. Another thing I love about this last-minute
the gift so that I can go into Target, I can go to Wal-Mart, I can go into a pharmacy, I can
go to the foot care section, and I can easily find this, or I can go to Amazon.com. Guys, it’s easy to get. So, all right, gentlemen. So, I’m pulling up their website right here, and I want you to check it out at www.amope.com/vday. And when you go there, what they’re going
to have is great information on how to create a pampering experience this Valentine’s Day.
And they’ve also got some coupon codes that
you can use. So, for the $10 off to Pedi perfect or some
additional codes off other Amope products, go to coupons.com/amope. And that’s spelled A-M-O-P-E. So, Valentine’s gift idea number three, gentlemen,
treat her to a spa, take her to a sauna, treat her to a massage. The point here is that you want to get close. You want skin-on-skin contact, which is
legitimate very, you know, if you don’t really know the person too well, maybe this isn’t
going to work. But, for those of you that have maybe been
with your wife for a decade, make time because I know with my wife, it’s straightforward for me
to buy the certificate and say, hey, here honey, here you go. But, what’s harder is actually to say, I’m
going to watch the kids, I’m going to stay with all four. So, you go off, spend the afternoon pampering
yourself, or better yet, I got a babysitter, or I get her parents to come in. They’re
going to watch the kids for half the day. We’re going to do this together because
when you’re in a room with your, you know, with someone that you wanted to get closet,o and you’re both just wearing towels, let’s say it can put you in a great mood, put
you in a playful fun mood and that’s what we’re shooting for here.
Valentine’s gift idea number four is dinner. I know that one sounds obvious, but we’re
going to change this up just a bit. It’s going to be the dinner that’s all about
her, the dinner that will show that she matters that you care. And you do this by paying attention to the
small things. Let’s say you go out to eat, well, you make
sure to go to the restaurant before. You know the waiter, you know the table you’re
going to sit at, you have all of these reserved so that you know it’s not going to be overcrowded, that you know the food is going to be good and that you know it’s going to be a great
experience that she’s going to remember. You guys are going to talk about it.
Maybe you go out to eat all the time. Well, about bring it at home because a lot
of you guys, maybe you can’t afford a fancy restaurant, but you can always afford you
can learn how to cook, you can learn how to present the food, you can learn how to put
together a great dish. You can spend the time months ahead learning
those small details getting everything ready so that she’s just blown away because she
didn’t even know this side of you, especially if you’re getting to know somebody, this
is a great way to show some of the skill sets, everything that you can bring to the table
and at the end of the day, what you do is you make the person you’re with, you make them
know that they matter and that you care about them. Valentine’s gift idea number five, gentlemen,
have a shared fun experience with this person.
You want to find an experience; I’m not talking
about dinner and a movie; I’m talking about you may be going go-kart riding, you finding
some bungee jumping to do depending on how adventurous she is. I know personally that my wife and I have gone
shooting, and for years, I have wanted to get her to go shooting, and this is something going
out for target practice. I’ve always thought it is enjoyable. She is not really saying she’s not into
it; as soon as she did, I can tell you that it was just something she enjoyed. She thought it was a lot of fun. It was something that she had never done before. And by getting someone outside of her comfort
zone, getting something that gets their heart rate up a bit, they suddenly
associate that with you.
So, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been with that person for a
decade or dating them for ten minutes; it doesn’t matter. You want to get them to feel,
okay, I like I feel good, and I’m around this person, and they associate that together. All right, gentlemen. So now, it’s your turn. I want to hear from you down in the comments
the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve given that you’re going to give, maybe an idea of
something you have wanted to give.
This is something that if you pick up nothing
else from my video, gentlemen, understand that the gift that you give it’s the emotion,
it’s the time, and it’s the preparation; it’s you showing that the person you’re giving
it to matters and that they are, you know, whether you spend a dollar or whether you
spend a thousand dollars, and you want to show that the person matters. Now, I do want to thank Amope again, great
gift, great like I said, I am actually giving this to my wife with flowers with I write
a little bit of poetry.
But, something like this is practical use, and I know that she will love it, and it works well. I did; I tested this on myself. This thing works really well on your calluses,
so why not give a gift like this. But, again, you can get it a Walmart, and you can
get it at Target. You can go; here is their website speedy,
www.amope.com/vday. And, when you get here, they’re going to have
more information so that you can create a great Valentine’s Day experience. Gentlemen, that’s it. Have a great Valentine’s Day, and I’ll see
you in the comments. Take care.
