So, you’ve forgotten your anniversary. You are well aware this could mean actual physical pain or some kind of silent treatment and a combination of facial expressions that you never realised were possible that will leaving you wishing it had been physical pain. So, is there any way to salvage the situation?
Yes, there is, but the first step is to never admit that you have forgotten such special occasions. If she gives you a present and then accuses you of forgetting, a simple ‘maybe I have, maybe I haven’t’ will often suffice, followed by a trip to the computer, the first moment you get alone. This is made easier by the fact that most phones now let you access the internet which means you should be able to get online to rectify the situation even if she is next to you. Although if this will be your best bet, it may be worth having a flower delivery company that has your details already in their system so you don’t have to give the game away by reaching for your credit card.
Now, all you need to do is get the right bouquet created and flower delivery arranged to your house or her place of work and you have suddenly averted a major crisis. With many companies able to offer anniversary flowers delivered in a very short turn around, she will almost certainly believe that you had the gesture planned all along.
There are other items you will no doubt be able to have delivered if you feel a floral arrangement alone isn’t enough, but getting floral delivery will almost certainly be enough to put her off the trail whilst you spend the day buying a range of other presents that will be ready and waiting for her when she gets home. If that’s not your style, by having dinner ready and waiting for her and a nice warm bubble bath at the end of it, you may well find that what was damage control suddenly seems like a very romantic gesture indeed.
