5 Things To Surprise Your Girlfriend With To Make Her Head-Over-Heels Happy And Thankful

5 Affordable Things To Surprise Your Girlfriend With That Will Make Her Head-Over-Heels Happy

It's the little things that count.


You may have heard about the fact that women love expensive things. Diamond rings, 3-course meals, nail appointments, shopping, etc. But I have a question for you:

Are you with the right woman?

Here it is my guys - the things that we, as women, appreciate the most. It doesn't have to be an expensive gift for it to mean something. I promise you.

We're more about gestures and the true meaning behind a gift. It can be a cheap gift, but if it has significance to it, we'll cherish it forever. Stay tuned.

1. Flowers.

The most stereotypical gift for a woman would be flowers and chocolates. The chocolates don't really mean anything though - it's food. We can go out and buy chocolate anytime we want it.

We can also equally as likely buy ourselves flowers when we feel like treating ourselves, but when we get surprised with them for no reason at all, we're flattered. Really, flowers can flatter us and make us smile so big. It doesn't have to mean anything either; flowers are beautiful and temporary, but the fact that a man takes time out of his day to think twice about grabbing flowers for his girlfriend is where they went right. Take notes.

2. Dinner.

This one might also seem stereotypical, but for the most part, we aren't expecting this type of treatment. When my boyfriend decides to take me out to dinner, it's a bonding experience and a coming together moment for us since we only ever cook or eat out and stay in all day.

Going out, getting dolled up, and having dinner with our significant others is truly an unforgettable time just because we aren't expecting it firsthand. Surprise a woman with this and she'll remember it for a much longer time.

3. Visiting her unexpectedly.

A surprise visit is the life of the party. When women aren't expecting it, it's an eye-opener. If you're texting her and you don't mention that you're popping in to say hi, cook dinner or to hang out, she'll be sure to smile and appreciate you more.

Surprises are the most fun part, though we women sometimes hate being surprised because we want to know what's going to happen.

4. Cards.

Taking the time to find a card, write a message inside of it, and hand-deliver it to your girlfriend is a gesture in itself. Reading a message that someone wrote directly toward us that has inside jokes, gestures or questions are intriguing and super cute. You can't go wrong here. Even handmade cards would work; if anything, those are better.

5. Coffee.

This one is such a good example.

For me, at least, I love having coffee in the mornings to start my day. I normally make my own coffee and make it iced.

But lemme tell you fellas - make or buy coffee for your girl, and you've earned her heart. Especially if you can get her order 100% accurate without needing to ask her for clarification.

I hope you take these examples and run with them. Happiness isn't at the tip of a dollar bill. Money isn't always necessary to make women happy; all that we ask is that you be yourselves and look out for us. Stay loyal, crack jokes, watch movies with us, and most of all, love us. We're usually happy if you're happy.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
