Best Gift This Valentines

In my opinion, the best gift this Valentines is a set of professional makeup brushes. It is not only because I am looking to purchase one, but they are something that any girl will appreciate. Compared to the popular Valentines gifts, these are perfect.

Just to explain my point, let us look at the common Valentines gifts.

Chocolates. Chocolates are fattening. It doesn't matter what color they are or where they come from. Chocolates are high in calories. There is no other way around it. I am currently on a diet, looking to shed a few pounds. If you give me chocolates knowing the effort I'm putting into losing weight, I would be offended. If you didn't know, I will say thanks but will definitely not appreciate it that much.

Flowers. I don't really like dead plants regardless of how they are arranged. They usually end up in the trash bin. Any gift that ends up in the trash bin is no good. I would like it more if you give me a potted plant. However, giving someone something that requires caring can be inconsiderate. I am already busy as it is, now you want to give me something that requires my time, effort, and attention?

Sex. Who do you think you are? Adonis? Are you implying I don't get enough? Good sex is very nice.

However, it is something that can be had any time of the year.

A fancy romantic dinner. I actually kind of like this. But feeding someone doesn't seem like much of a gift unless someone was dying of starvation beforehand.

See? That is why you give someone a set of makeup brushes.

Gifts For Girls This Valentines

Finding the right gift to give someone is always difficult The charge of finding the right gift becomes even more difficult when the recipient is a girl. Girls are finicky and difficult to figure out. At least, girls are definitely more difficult than guys. I know this because I am a girl and I have many girlfriends. I don't really know a guy who says he wants a nice girl and then proceeds to date a bad girl. If a guy is dating the someone wild, it is usually because that is the way he wanted it. There is a reason why "girl wants a nice guy but dates a bad boy" has become a popular movie plot. Anyways, enough with girls this and girls that. Let's get back on topic.

Choosing gifts for girls is difficult. Especially when you are a guy. Your mind just doesn't work the same way as ours. You cannot be too practical. Think instead of what the girl is interested in. Now, if you are still trying to get to know the girl, this can be difficult. So stick to things that girls generally love.

So, my first recommendation for items to gift to girls this Valentine is a set of professional makeup brushes. Every girl can use a makeup, even those who don't like wearing them. There are days when you need to hide something. A good makeup brush can make all the difference between looking good and looking rugged.

Second is a trip to the spa. We like to be pampered and beauty spas are the perfect locations for that pampering. A trip to the spa can also be relaxing to you. Alternatively, a holiday trip is also a good idea. I want to note that you have to be at a certain relationship level to make this work.

That's it. Simply add some other details like chocolates and flowers if that fits the girl's taste. The two gifts I recommended I chose for being budget-friendly and easy to do while providing great satisfaction.

Does Price Really Make A Difference?

If you search for eye make brushes on Amazon, you will see that prices vary from single to triple-digit dollars.  Yes. That is, up until a certain point. Quality materials are more expensive. So are skilled workers and manufacturing equipment. If you want high-quality brushes, you are going to have to pay more for it. However, there is a certain point when spending more will not give you better quality.

We have to look at what dictates the price. In the ideal world, the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution cost should be the driving forces behind the price. If you based it only on these three, you will get affordable sets. However, just like all things on earth, makeup products are subject to branding. Just by virtue of having a certain brand printed on the package, the price can jump over three times of the actual cost of making, marketing, and distribution of the product.

You might be wondering. "I being played when I spend for the more expensive ones?" Not really.

If you have the money to splurge, there is nothing bad about buying the luxury brands. There is some joy in owning something expensive. However, if your wallet is getting squeezed out by buying that certain brand, then you are getting played. Not by the store or manufacturer, but by yourself.

"Why?" You asked.

It is your decision to make. Nobody is forcing you. The thing I mentioned about the joy in owning something expensive and exclusive is negated when you have to sacrifice in order to make your budget work.
