It may be one of the toughest gifts a man has to purchase, the Valentine's Day gift.  And it may be one of the most important.  If the relationship is just beginning, you don't want to push it past where she thinks it is, and if you've been married for 20 years, a toaster or vacuum will put you right in the ol' doghouse.  Here's some tips on what she really wants from Cupid.

Our friends at the Daily Mail surveyed two thousand women to find out what they really wanted and it's somewhat surprising.  Comfortable underwear came up at number 2, ahead of wearing sexy ones.  Having a bubble bath beat out a day at the spa (way down on the list at 31).  It seems the ladies like things that aren't necessarily related to dollars and cents.  Number 1 on the list was getting spontaneous cuddle.   Here's the top 10.

  1. A partner giving you a spontaneous cuddle
  2. Comfortable underwear
  3. Someone telling you they think you’ve lost weight
  4. Buying a present for someone which they’re obviously pleased to receive
  5. Wearing sexy underwear
  6. Finding a bargain
  7. Receiving flowers
  8. Being bought a present
  9. Someone saying you look younger than you are
  10. A stranger complementing you on your style

Check out the complete list of 50 things women want most here.

So my take away on the perfect Valentine's Day gift would be to pay her a compliment, get her some flowers, chocolate and cheese.  And if there's a "must-see" game on, at least draw her a bubble bath and give her a book.
