Most guys in the dating league have been down this lane. Time is fast-running out, the clock is ticking away to that special, memorable occasion, yet still, you have got no clue as to what to buy that special someone for a gift.
Should you find yourself in this kind of situation, all you may have left to fall back on is your knowledge of her colour preferences and fashion sense.
Generally, our women are such a colourful lot; their clothes will resemble a flower garden in full bloom on a really good day. Then on another day, she will crave a blue shade over red. When you get to know your woman, you will notice that she wears some colours more often than others, regardless of seasonal fashion trends.
Here’s how to charm your way into her heart using nothing but her choice of colour.
The colour for the impulsive, sexy, athletic and exciting woman. A woman whose favourite colour is red is one that literally cries out to be looked at. They are usually bold, confident, and this confidence may come with a hot temper. A shopping voucher from Simba or Nakumatt is her likely kind of thing.
She is a people-person who likes to be the centre of attention. What she wants, she believes she can get, and usually does. She is the adventurous type. Take her bungee jumping, or gorilla tracking in the national parks. A lingerie set is something she will cherish, provided it is not bought from a street vendor.
She is an optimist. Her future is so bright, she needs shades. Idealist, imaginative and creative, she fancies herself as an intellectual. Take her out to a mentally challenging sport like chess. A Chessboard is likely to appeal to her strategic instincts. If you want a woman who finely juggles career and family, a yellow is the real deal.
She is a nature lover. Secure, nurturing, sensitive, moral and honest. She has self-contained thoughts and therefore is a natural counselor. Buy her a plant she can love to distraction. And if you are the type of man who believes that making a baby with a woman is equal to giving her a gift, then look no further.
The blues are women who avoid conflict, are conservative and care for others. They tend to be loyal and emotional, and simply feel their surroundings. These women appreciate order. Take her schedule seriously when you plan something. Simple, traditional gifts are favoured here.
Forever the perfectionist and puritan, she expects exceeding standards from everyone. She is a natural at analyzing, and has a sense of self-importance. Inflate this ego if you want to impress her. You could try snow-white bed linen or scented soaps for her.
The girly colour. She longs to slap her happy face on everything and watch the world through rose-tinted shades. Comb the bookstores for the latest gardening book, a porcelain tea set or a collection of her favourite comedians on DVD.
Black is the ultimate power colour; the height of sophistication. These usually come across as witty and clever in public. They are all about putting a barricade between themselves and the world. Look, but don’t touch. Allow her to vent her escapist tendencies with lots of independence while doing it. Get this one a jigsaw puzzle, or a well-written book she can disappear into, anything that acts as a buffer between her and the world.
