Scarlett Lounge Translation: What She Really Wants This Season!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Guys, Scarlett Lounge is here to save your Holidays! , Scarlett Lounge's Splurge vs. Steal Holiday Guide has gifts for her and everyone on your list. You can ask her what she wants for the Holidays but what she tells you will probably throw you completely off-track (remember the unfortunate toaster incident?). Lucky for you, we've translated the five most common things that women say.

1 - When she says she "wants nothing": This is a serious warning! You should heed this warning as your last chance to make up for a previous year's failings or for something that may be completely unrelated (don't worry about that now). When she says she wants nothing, it means you should get her the most extravagant gift possible, go for a Scarlett Lounge splurge.

2 - When she says she "wants something homemade": She's probably trying to be frugal, given the economy, but unless you're a skilled artist or craftsmen, leave the homemade stuff to the experts. Get her something comforting like handmade specialty soaps and candles (in her favourite scents), or homemade treats (a box of fresh cookies can go a long way).

3 - When she says she "wants something small": She means she wants something in a small box, NOT socks! Simple and inexpensive jewelry is the way to go. Lingerie/Loungewear is another good option but tread carefully, you don't want to come across as sleazy; if you're not sure what she likes go for fuzzy PJ's.

4 - When she says she "just wants gifts for the kids": Sure this is a practical thing to say, but unless you want to spend New Year's Eve in the dog house, you should get her something. She might be in a selfless kind of mood but indulge her instead with a spa service, something fun like dance lessons or something you know she's been eyeing for a while.

5 - When she says she "wants something meaningful": She wants something she'll remember for years to come. Set up a studio session for family portraits, get her that favourite childhood movie, or take her on a weekend getaway to your favourite romantic destination. You can even cook her favourite meal (and clean up!).
