The White Day, one of the most romantic days of the year, is on the horizon. And as the dawn breaks, oriental men everywhere will be seen devising strategies to impress that special someone with something extraordinary.
Just for the record: White Day is an oriental equivalent of the Valentine’s Day.
Contrary to popular practice, Valentine’s Day in China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea is celebrated by women instead of men. You’d see women passing out chocolates, flowers and other gifts to express their emotions.
On the 14th of March, the White Day, men would be seen reciprocating those efforts to express their love. This is also where the concept of sanbai gaeshi comes in; men’s “answer” needs to be two to three times more valuable than what they received on Valentine’s Day.
It is absolutely natural for men to be worried about making the right gesture on White Day. So if you’re one of them, you need not worry.
Here are 8 tips to impress her this White Day. You can follow all of these tips or pick a few of them; she’ll be amazed at your thoughtfulness.
1. Wake up early
This may strike as weird but getting up early in the morning will actually give you more time to plan the day. So be the early bird for once and set your alarm a few hours earlier.
2. Dress to impress
The way you dress up says a lot about you. Well-dressed men get more attention and are twice more likely to win her heart without doing much. Remember when she said she liked your attire? Pick out the exact same combination to wow her.
3. Get a grand white day cake
It all starts with a white day cake. Most confectionery stores will have a special variety prepared for White Day. Pick a nice cake with white frosting. You might want to get her name lettered on it; it makes it more personal.
4. Book a bouquet of white flowers
Regardless of whether she admits it or not, she LOVES flowers! Every woman does! Pick a classy bouquet of white flowers for this day to convey the right message.
5. Get some classy White Day Jewelry Gifts
Flowers are going to die and the cake will eventually be gone too. You need a souvenir that outlives these presents. This is where White Day Jewelry Gifts come into play. Diamonds, Sterling Silver, White Gold and Clear Cubic Zirconia are top picks for the day. Get some awesome jewelry that goes with her everyday attire. Give her a reason to remember you 365 days a year!
6. Pick a nice spot
Whether it’s a private lunch date or a more elaborate dinner, you need to pick a secluded silent spot to celebrate your love. Look for restaurants that’ll be kind enough to make special arrangements, or pick a spot away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. It has to be about you two, your commitment, your love and your passion.
7. Forget your phone at home (or in the car)
Let’s face it, no one likes getting interrupted by phone calls no matter how important they are. To make this day extra special for her, deliberately forget your phone in the car or at the home. The fewer distractions you have, the more romantic it will be.
8. Remember to order desserts
End your day with something sweet, preferably chocolate. It gives oxytocin levels a boost, making you (and your loved one) feel happier and in love. It’s a good old way of making memories to cherish.
