How come some people have life handed to them on a silver platter? Those who were born into extravagant wealth or people who hit the jackpot investing in Uber at the right time – for some reason they get to take unearned, undeserved shortcuts. Life isn’t fair, and money is one of those things that feels particularly not fair. But you’re smart. You’re savvy. You’ve figured out a #lifehack on how to spend more money without making any more money (and no, we’re not talking about racking up credit card debt). You decided to find a sugar mama.
There are many reasons to search for one of these mutually beneficial relationships—companionship for the sugar mama, sponsorship for the sugar baby—and getting to experience the world in good company. Believe it or not, there are a plethora of websites and apps designed to help you find that person. If you’re looking to find a sugar momma, make sure you do some research on the legitimacy of the site. With the increasing popularity of sugar, dating comes the increasing possibility of scams, which is why it’s so important to find a reliable website. You can also use these websites and apps if you’re a sugar momma or sugar daddy in search of younger men or women to take on adventures. Once you’ve done your research, you’ll find that the process of sugar dating is as easy as it is fun. And while sugar dating is good fun, it’s still good to put in a bit of effort and try to impress your sugar mama now and again. Here are some tips for romantic gifts your momma will love.
1. Houseplants and Greenery
Nothing says “I can take care of you” quite like showing that you can take care of something else. Remember that scene in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days when Kate Hudson finds out that Matthew McConaughey killed their love fern? Don’t be that guy. Commit to taking care of something as simple as a houseplant, and then follow through.
Perhaps you already take care of another living organism. Perhaps you have a furry friend. Then think of this as an opportunity to make your living space homier as well as more stylish. Can you think of a single room in a house that wouldn’t look cuter with a houseplant in it? Didn’t think so. Try some aloe vera in the bathroom, which thrives in high humidity. Set some succulents in the direct light of a windowsill if you’re afraid you’ll forget to water your new houseplants more than once/month (which is about all they need!). You can even buy pet safe house plants, like spider plants or prayer-plants. It’s the easiest upgrade you can give your home to impress anyone you’ll have over. And who knows? You might even make a hobby out of it.
2. Cruise Adventures
Everyone loves being treated. Even though you’re the sugar baby, you can still pay the tab every once in a while. It’s classy, and it’s a great way to show that you care (especially if it’s your sugar momma’s birthday. Nobody should pay on their birthday). Take them on a date they’ll treasure for a lifetime: a trip on a private yacht. Type “boat hire Algarve” in a search engine to find the Portugal-based company that’s right for you. Whether you’re looking for a private yacht, a luxury cruise, or a boat trip that only lasts a few hours, there is a wide range of cruise options to match your romantic plans as well as your budget.
What does your sugar momma most appreciate? Is it the chilled bubbly, snacks, and charcuterie boards on the deck of a boat as it sails the North Atlantic? Is it seeing the sights and being held in your arms as you look at the Algarve coastline’s incredible rock formations? Or does she want to dive into the action and swim, snorkel, or kayak to see famous caves and secluded beaches up close? You know your cougar better than anyone. Take her on an unforgettable trip to the sea, and she will laud your adventurous spirit, your classy taste, and your extensive experience as a world traveler.
3. Unforgettable Gift Ideas
You might think it’s your momma’s job to buy the gifts, but what better way to show your appreciation than to return the favor? When considering giving a gift to a woman, there is one luxurious category that should always pop into mind first: jewelry. It’s beautiful, it’s luxurious, it’s personal. A delicate necklace, some stylish earrings, a bracelet—jewelry is the perfect gift. Unfortunately, that may not be the best option for your wallet. Don’t worry, there are many other romantic gifts for your girlfriend that will show your sugar mama how much you value her.
The best gift is the most thoughtful gift, so think of what it is that you love the most about your lady. Or think of what makes her, her. Simple, daily acts are a great place to start. Leave a bar of chocolate in the kitchen or a new book on her pillow. Get creative. Write her a song, or give her a massage at the end of a long day. Cook her favorite food for dinner. The more personal the gift idea, the more impressed she’ll be, and your relationship will deepen as a result.
4. New Clothes
Dress yourself up. If you have a sugar momma who has been generous enough to buy clothing for you to wear on your lavish dates, the best way to impress her is to show that you’ve learned something. Take the style tips you’ve gotten, consider the fit of the ‘fit that your momma likes to look at, and put your spin on it.
If you go to a lot of expensive restaurants, buy a new button-down shirt with a fun pattern. Pair it with a complementary tie. No need to buy a new sport coat when the one you’ve got is already perfect. You don’t have to break the bank to show your sugar momma that you are absorbing her lessons in style – and that you’ve learned enough to develop your own taste. Pro tip: if you’re having trouble with this task, watch a couple of episodes of Queer Eye for inspiration. We’re not crying, you’re crying.
5. Education and Knowledge
Your sugar mama is looking for lively companionship. That usually includes conversation, wit, and playful banter. The easiest way to spark an interesting conversation is to know what you’re talking about. Take a topic she knows a lot about, say fine wines. You could fill an entire library with knowledge about wine, from different grapes to regions to vintages and the specific varietals that your woman loves. No need to learn everything, just take a sampling of knowledge and show it off.
For instance, you could research the noble grapes. These are probably the wines you’ve heard of before – chardonnay, riesling, cabernet sauvignon, e.g. You can memorize a few tasting notes for them (“tart,” “juicy,” or “tannic”) and casually toss them in the next time you two are enjoying a glass. Not only will you impress your sugar mama with your knowledge of the finer things, but also you’ll better enjoy wine tasting the more you improve your palate. Whatever your woman is passionate about, take the time to learn more about it. It can only improve the quality of your relationship—and your life.
