Anyone that doesn't even know her can buy her a dozen roses or a generic box of candy. And what does that say.
Add something to those roses that says you listen. Show her you pay attention to her, let her see that you put a little thought into a gift that's tailored to her.
Pair the chocolates up with a candy dish that's in a pattern, or era, or color, or style she likes.
Give those flowers with a vase that she pointed out, and you remembered.
It doesn't have to be expensive or difficult. Just think about the things she's shared, like that her favorite animal is the seahorse, or that she loved Scooby Doo as a kid. Imagine how happy she'd be with a vintage Scooby Doo lunchbox filled with candy. Or a seahorse Beanie Baby.
A gift like that says you listen. That's what she wants.
Come to Scranberry Coop and have a look around. See what makes you think of her. A Currier and Ives winter village house, a little Buddha, a teacup with a dragon on it. A guitar, a retro desk phone, a vintage radio, and antique chair.
There's lots of things here to inspire you. You may walk in unsure of what she'll like. But you'll know it when you see it. Something will remind you of a story she told you, or something she said or something you know she'd appreciate. You'll look at something and think: that's it. That's her.
And that's Romantic.
