5 Things you can do to surprise her
This article tells you the ways in which you can surprise your girlfriend. It gives you tips that you can follow to pleasantly surprise her

A surprise has the power to liven one’s day.

A good surprise on the other hand can brighten one’s week. When you surprise someone with a gesture, a gift, a kind word you not only make them happy, but you show them how much you love and care for them. This is after all Valentine’s month, so you should shower her with the following surprises to tell her how much she means to you.

1. Cancel a boy’s night out

You may find this to be the most difficult thing you have ever had to do. But if you want her to drop her jaw in amazement and shock, cancel a night out with the boys and spend that time with her instead. It does not matter if you’ll go for an expensive dinner or simply spend the time talking/watching a movie. Your gesture is sure to please her and make her want to shower you with attention.

2. Prepare a mix-tape

Unfortunately, mix-tapes have been forgotten thanks to newer technology options. But if you wish to bring some innocence and old school charm into your relationship, prepare a mix-tape for her. Record her favourite songs and you can add a special message in your voice for that personalised touch. The fact that you spent so much time and made this effort for her is going to get her teary with happiness and joy

3. Call back after 5 minutes

It is said that a man’s ‘call you in 5 minutes’ equals a woman’s ‘I’ll be ready in 5 minutes’. For a change, surprise her by actually calling her back after 5 minutes. Do this regularly and she will be just too surprised to talk for the first 30 seconds of the phone call.

4. Watch Oprah with her

For most women, Oprah is akin to Fairy God Mother. For once, you can get away by talking bad about your girlfriend’s mother, but you will not escape her wrath if you say a word against Oprah. On those calm afternoons that you are lazing around together, catch up on some Oprah. She will be so pleasantly surprised and happy that you might just get a treat while the episode is running!

5. Know the difference between mauve and lilac

For men, colours are classified as blue, red, black, white, purple, yellow, green. On the other hand, colours like lilac, mauve, turquoise, peacock green are abstract words with little or no meaning. Surprise her by buying her a lilac dress or by gifting her a turquoise saree. The fact that you can tell your colours apart is sure to thrill her way more than the gift does.

Surprise does not equal expensive and ostentatious. At the end of the day, it is the little things and small joys that you can bring to her and the relationship that count. (Dating, MensXP.com)
