They say “to err is human, but to forgive is divine”. Increase your odds of receiving forgiveness, with gifts that say I’m sorry. If you’re wondering how to say you’re sorry, consider using a gift to get your feelings across. Browse our I’m sorry gifts for wife and I’m sorry gifts for girlfriend to find a bevy of ways to beg for a pardon! Classic I’m sorry gifts of flowers and gourmet desserts are great for small errors, while jewelry and spa baskets are appropriate for bigger transgressions. Get out of the doghouse a little bit faster when you select I’m sorry gifts from RedEnvelope!
Generally speaking, issues like working late every night or forgetting to fill up the tank are small mistakes – unless they happen on a regular basis. Similarly, forgetting her birthday – or your anniversary – one time can be forgiven. If you consistently forget, though, she’s sure to become increasingly upset. Big transgressions – flirting with another woman, spending shared money without telling her, or spilling private secrets to your friends and family – only need to happen once. Hopefully she has a three strikes rule, but a huge mistake might be a deal breaker. Mitigate the fallout with a prompt – and impressive – apology gift or two. Our romantic gifts for her might be a good starting point…
These gifts – and the errors that make them necessary – come in varying levels of intensity. The first step in selecting an I’m sorry gift is to determine how upset she is. You might think that you’ve committed a minor offense, but she could see it as a huge betrayal. Select a gift that corresponds with her level of anger, and not your perception of how angry she should be. Otherwise, it might just make things worse. It’s better to err on the side of big apology gifts – yes, that means roses and jewelry for her! – than to offend her more with an unimpressive present.
Flowers for her are a reliable choice for saying you’re sorry. Roses are a classic way to send regrets, and the various hues express different sentiments. A dark red rose, for example, symbolizes shame. Dark pink roses can express thankfulness, which tells your wife or girlfriend that you truly appreciate her. If you’ve been falsely accused, you might opt for flowers that represent innocence, like white roses, freesia, gerbera daisies, and baby’s breath. Up the ante by purchasing a two-day delivery set, and send her a double-dose of I’m sorry. One such gift delivers potted pink roses the first day, and six giant dipped strawberries on day two. She might be able to resist roses, but our fancy dipped berries are another story entirely! Boxes of chocolate truffles, bouquets of flower-shaped butter crème cookies, and whimsical brownie pops will also help her to move on.
Some apologies aren’t complete without something sparkly, and we have the perfect gifts in mind. Our “diamonds” and roses bouquet combines two dozen elegant, long stem red roses with five sprays of glittering rhinestones. If that isn’t enough, perhaps a piece of diamond jewelry will assuage her anger? Anything that represents your devotion to the relationship, like an eternity band or infinity symbol pendant, will send the right message. Diamonds tend to speak for themselves, but we suggest preparing an apology speech just in case. Heart jewelry, and personalized engraved jewelry, will also lift her spirits. Hopefully the corners of her smile will lift as well!
Make amends the best way you can, with I’m sorry gifts for girlfriend and wife. It is the thought that counts, and your efforts will be recognized. She might not be ready to forgive you just yet, but at least you’re making progress! RedEnvelope’s full selection of apology gifts for her is the best way to show your regret to the one that you love.
