Making a gift to Ukrainian / Russian girl
First thing to be mentioned here is that the best present you could ever make a girl (just like, in fact, to any possible person), is sincereness and pure, kind attitude. Relationships, of course, is not a market place, where you can buy somebody’s attention or favor with the way you treat them. And still, positive regard is a pledge for a person to like you in return. You know, why Ukrainian girls are the best for relationships?
It is all good and right about the attitude, but returning back closer to the topic we’re about to discuss, we shall mention that presents are very important element of the Slavic culture. Russians and Ukrainians use most of the occasions to make presents, whether it’s some kind of holiday (no matter, whether it is civil, religious or family one), party, birthday, simple home visit or date – there are lots of reins for people of this culture to make or receive presents. As this kind of attitude slightly differs from Western and European mentality, we, hereby, are going to give you some short and useful tips how to make your present-giving successful and pleasant for both - you and the receiver (ie your Russian or Ukrainian girlfriend).

Here we’re not going to mention this and move straight to the actual point – what are the best gifts for Russian and Ukrainian women.
Making a gift for Russian or Ukrainian girls is not a hard thing to do at all, as long as the intention goes straight from your heart. If you were attentive enough while your previous, virtual communication, you will probably face no difficulties at this point as you have surely discussed things you both like and this is a fruitful field for your action. This is an important tip to be given since the very beginning: be perspective since the time you start your conversation, as in it you may not only find plenty of hints on your girl’s true obvious or hidden desires, or longings, or preferences (which will definitely help you in the process of choosing a present) but also, simply, help you to know your partner better and give you a chance to get into her world.
Before going to your Russian woman, find out something about who she lives with and her family, as Russians and Ukrainians have a tradition of the gift-making to the family members as well, especially if you’re coming from the different country. The first and the easiest present for you to make is a souvenir. As far as you’re coming from another country, there are a lot of variants for you for a present. You can bring memento that reflects whether your cultural or national species, or some local customs and traditions, or something that is connected to the social or family group you belong to. Whatever that may represent you in some way will do, especially if it looks cute! :)
The next big advice concerning making gifts for Russian / Ukrainian woman is its value. If it’s not an out-of-row situation or something you’ve discussed beforehand, I would surely recommend your gift to be moderate. Whatever is that you are presenting, especially at the first stages of communication, you better do the accent on the present’s meaning then its price. You see, it is both risky and inappropriate to make it expensive as, firstly, you may stress the girl with an awkwardness as costly gift is a serious input that may cause her thinking that you expect something from her and, saying frankly, it may be simply left disappointed and empty if things between you will not turn out well. So just be honest about what you’re ready to give to a girl without consciously or unconsciously expecting something in return, and stick to it. Best things to pick here would be soft toys, flowers, sweets, tickets to some event or entertainment, something beautiful and memorable, something she told you she wants. Do you have questions?

And the last important tip on a present-making to your Slavic girl is its perceptiveness. As my grandfather was paying attention to my grandmother, he presented her a big Russian dictionary (she was a Russian language teacher). When she asked him why he made her such an expensive present (this kind of dictionaries were very pricy at that times), he answered that he already then knew he was going to marry her. So if you are sure about your feelings to the woman you are attending, feel free making some useful presents that will not only please your companion, but will also make an input in her personal development or may simply be useful in everyday life. For example – you can bring dvd with movies or books in English, so it would help her to improve her language or take her to a trip around her own nearby places she haven’t been to, or somewhere you both will be new at – this would be an amazing experience that will not only leave a good memory, but also give many pleasant impressions.
