Forgive me for how awful this might sound, but sometimes you fellas are a little lame when it comes to that whole gift giving thing. It seems like, more often than not, a lot of guys steer towards the flowers, candy, jewelry, coupon book, and stuffed animal route when it comes to getting a gift for a gal. And, I don’t really blame you. I mean, after doing a little research for this article I see that’s the advice from a lot of articles out there. But gals don’t always want the overly cliché things. We also don’t always want something extravagant and romantic. A good gift should show that you pay attention to who your gal truly is (and not like you just Googled “what to buy your lady for her birthday”). So, here are 10 things your girlfriend actually wants for her birthday.
Now, I know at first glance this kind of thing might not seem like it’s a birthday gift but trust me it is. The good thing about places like this is you can make a whole afternoon or day of it. You can splurge and buy her a few things she fancies while you’re wandering around. You can also usually get some kind of treats to eat and drink. And, if it’s a farmers market then you can surprise her by grabbing some ingredients to cook dinner or make something tasty later that night.
Tickets to a play, museum, etc. she’s always talked about
Most plays, museums, and other cultural things are just pricey enough that sometimes you toss it aside when splurging on yourself, but inexpensive enough that it’s not too over the top as a birthday gift. So, if there is something she’s mentioned wanting to see definitely go grab the tickets and take her.
Something that helps her work on a hobby or interest
I had just started dating my fiancé around my birthday last year. He ended up getting me this really nice notebook as a gift. I swooned. A lot. It was one of the best gifts ever. I still have it and I still use it.
Dinner at a restaurant you know she’d never take herself to (but that you know she really wants to go to)
This kind of works the same way as the whole play and museum thing. Maybe it’s something she saw on Food Network or just something she thinks would be really cool. Either way, it could be the perfect spot for a present (and celebration).
Some type of food she loves that’s really hard to get
Has she traveled to Europe? Or did she once live in a different city? If so, there’s a good chance there might be something really tasty that she can rarely find. It could even be something as simple as Cincinnati Chili or a Chicago dog. Find out if you can get it or maybe there is a good recipe and you can make it.
Something to remember where she’s from (assuming she likes where she’s from)
Maybe it’s the fact that I have lived in a city of transplants for so long, but a lot of people I know don’t live in the place where they grew up. Sites like Etsy have lots of pictures, jewelry, and other items from various places that will totally throwback to her childhood.
A funny t-shirt to remind her of an inside joke between the two of you
My fiancé once bought me a Soul Glo shirt. (If you don’t know what that is Google it and go watch Coming to America immediately.) It wasn’t for any special occasion, but still applies here. It’s from a movie that we both quote religiously and it makes us laugh. It also gave me the warm fuzzies.
Some kind of experience that you wouldn’t normally do
If you’re gal is a little adventurous then take a walk on the wild side. It could be fun for both of you actually. It doesn’t have to be something traditional like sky diving or bungee jumping though it can be. You could also try something out of the box like taking a pig butchering class.
Hand crafted/unique jewelry
OK, I can openly admit that jewelry is pretty awesome and most gals like jewelry. But that doesn’t mean you have to go with a heart shaped diamond pendant. You can also look for something that’s a little more unique and one-of-a-kind. Again, check out Etsy.
Who says that you can only do birthday related things on your birthday? You can also do something that’s fun and seasonal. Is it fall? How about a pumpkin patch? If it’s winter you could go sledding. If it’s summer you could go catch a baseball game or watch some fireworks.
Relaxation Of CBD In NFL – An Insight
There has been a lot of buzz around CBD in recent years, especially in the health and wellness industry.
Many sports associations and players around the world have also recognized CBD as a pro sports
However, one of the most coveted associations- the National Football League, more popularly known as
the NBD had been quite strict in its ban of cannabis related products, including CBD. But in recent times,
there seems to be some good news in store both for eh players and every CBD shop as the association is
considering lifting the blanket ban and allowing players to use CBD, which has become popular for its
What Is CBD?
Before we proceed to understand the decision of the NFL, it is important to understand what CBD is and
how it is different from the other cannabis product. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the primary chemicals
found in the cannabis plant, the other being THC. However, contrary to common beliefs, CBD is not
psychoactive in nature. It does not cause the user to feel ‘high.’ This is because high quality CBD does
not contain even trace amounts of THC, which is responsible for these reactions.
In fact, many recent studies indicate that CBD is an excellent medicine to cure several physical and
mental conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and depression.
Why Do Sportspersons Recommend CBD Use?
If you are into sports and athletics, avoiding injuries is almost impossible. While painkillers may be
helpful in managing the pain, they have numerous side effects on the other organs of the body. That is
why many players and athletes are now in favor of using CBD to manage their pains and injuries.
Sourced from organically grown hemp, CBD helps in alleviating the pain without injuring any other
organs of the body. It is no wonder that players are in favor of using CBD in place of the synthetic drugs
that are available in the market.
CBD For Sleep
For your body to perform its best, it is important for it to be well-rested and rejuvenated. This can only
happen through sound sleep. For many players, who suffer from muscle cramps and injuries, getting
proper sleep becomes a challenge. CBD can be very helpful in those circumstances as well. By soothing
the nerves, CBD helps the body to fall asleep faster and also the quality sleep that it needs.
Good sleep can also help the body in replenishing its worn and torn tissues faster.
The Changes Anticipated In NFL
The NFL, which has one of the strictest policies regarding drug testing, is now considering changing its
policies, especially the ones that are related to CBD. The players who test positive for cannabis will not
be directly suspended from the team. Rather a fine will be imposed on them as per the number of times
that they test positive.
The threshold for testing has also been changed as the players now will only be tested during the first
two weeks of the training camp, in place of the April- August testing policy that was followed earlier.
These progressive changes seem to be a direct result of the changed perception that most people have
regarding CBD today.
It is also worthy to note here that CBD is legal in all the American states, with minor restrictions on the
amount and the concentration of the product. Players are the happiest with this new move as they are
of the opinion that CBD works much better and is far less addictive than the painkillers that are given on
prescription. Even the sports associations around the world are also likely to reconsider their policy on
CBD after this change.
