Thinking of Sending a Gift This Valentine’s Day?

24. January 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Valentine’s Day is three weeks away, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start planning. Here are three FAQ about V-Day gifts and HotRussianBrides, as well as some basic advice to help members make a decision.


Should I Send a Lady a Gift?

The ladies, of course, like to receive gifts, but members are not obligated to send anything. Though men feel a lot of pressure to give women presents on Valentine’s Day, a gift is basically a worthless trinket if there is no feeling behind it. If you sincerely want to wish a lady a happy Valentine’s Day or make her feel special, then by all means send a gift. However, don’t feel forced. The decision, ultimately, is up to you. Just keep in mind that ladies in more serious relationships may be hurt if a suitor doesn't acknowledge Valentine's Day at all.


What Should I Send?

Gentlemen who do decide to buy gifts will then need to decide what to send. Not sure what to give a special lady? If you and a Russian woman are just starting to build a relationship, you may want to select a small, yet thoughtful gift like flowers, candy, or a stuffed animal. In a more serious relationship? Consider jewelry or English lessons. You can also, of course, ask a lady what kind of gifts she prefers, though she may wish to be surprised. Although the ladies are strictly forbidden from requesting gifts, gentlemen are free to inquire about personal preferences. If none of the gifts in the HRB shop appeal to you, consider writing a love letter or poem. There is, however, one gift you shouldn’t send a woman on HotRussianBrides.com and that’s cash (unless the two of you have completed the Intimacy Request process, and even then it’s iffy).


How Do I Send a Gift?

Sending a gift from the HotRussianBrides gift shop is surprisingly easy. View the video tutorial below for a step-by-step guide.



Good luck gentlemen!
