No one absolutely needs these everyday luxuries, but they sure would be nice to have!
Like many women, I often say that I don’t want or need anything when it comes to birthday or anniversary gifts. But are there luxury items or convenient services that I would love to have if I could afford to spend money on everything I wanted? Of course!
Next time you hear your girlfriend say she doesn’t want anything, think about the kinds of practical luxuries or expensive items that she wouldn’t normally buy for herself but would love to have. Here are 5 indulgent services I would love to buy if I was willing to spend a little extra on myself.
Membership to One Medical
For $150 bucks a year, you get a membership to One Medical, a high-end exclusive primary healthcare network that allows you to book same-day appointments on your iPhone and never wait for another doctor’s appointment again. You can also make live video calls to nurses to ask any health questions you want 24/7. If your girlfriend hates wasting time going to the doctor and waiting for appointments 2 months out, this is a really nice luxury to have. You can buy a membership in 5 minutes online.
I love massages but never get them because they’re expensive. I would love to be gifted an hour long massage at a decent massage place – it doesn’t need to be a fancy spa! It’s easy to go on Groupon or Yelp, find a reputable massage spot near you, and buy a gift certificate for your girlfriend. She will love the hour of relaxation.
Michelin Star Reservation
I don’t have Michelin star meals very often, but I sure do enjoy them when I have the chance! And lunch reservations are a lot less expensive than dinner reservations if that’s an option. Make a reservation online, and you’ve got a thoughtful gift and an exciting evening planned in under 5 minutes. Check the Michelin website for Michelin star restaurants in your area. If there aren’t any near you, search Yelp for any nice restaurants with tasting menus you could try.
House Cleaning Service
I rarely pay for housecleaning, but if I wasn’t so frugal, I would definitely hire a cleaning service more often. I hate cleaning but I love living in a clean place. If your girlfriend is a neat person who often spends a lot of her own time cleaning, a gift certificate for house cleaning will be useful right away. You can find great deals on Groupon or Angie’s List.
New Experience or Extreme Sports
Has your girlfriend ever expressed interest in skydiving, chocolate-making, bartending, salsa dancing, hiking, or jet skiing? Groupon offers lots of local adventures and experiences in your city. Scroll through the list for fun activities that you can do together. Experience gifts are unique and show that you put more thought into her gift.
Do you often talk about traveling more or going on more adventures but always end up hanging around at home instead? It’s easy to surprise your girlfriend with a weekend trip somewhere nearby. All you have to do to show that you put thought into it is to make some quick hotel reservations online.
