Not every woman wants to go to Macy’s on a shopping trip. Depending on the married woman that is on your arm, she might have some pretty distinct preferences that you don’t need to ignore. Just because she’s a hot sexy young thing doesn’t mean that she wants to shop at Forever 21, and just because she’s an older woman doesn’t mean she wants to go to Chico’s. There are a lot of great options out there that are a bit more unconventional about shopping dates, and the two of you can enjoy yourselves a lot more if you figure out what pertains to your actual interests.
Knitting Or Fabric Stores
A lot of women–and men–actually have knitting as a hobby, and taking her to a really nice knitting shop can really make her day. They’re actually pretty few and far between, so good luck finding one that will suit her tastes. If you’re not sure, you can always ask her if she’s ever been to the store that you’re eyeing. If she dismisses it with disdain, then don’t bother. If she seems excited, then take her to it. It might be a couple of hours away, but the two of you can make a day trip out of it.
There’s also the option for fabric or even just craft stores. There are a lot of ladies out there really into sewing or scrapbooking, and these are the kinds of places that they really want to blow their paychecks at. Take her shopping there and let her go to town. You’ll really win her affection after that!
A Farmer’s Market
A large, well-stocked farmer’s market can be a goldmine of fun for the both of you. We’re not talking a corner store; we’re talking a sprawling bazaar that is full of different farmers and crafters in the area that are selling their wares. These places usually don’t just have produce. They have flower vendors, cut flower vendors, koi fish, soaps, wines, ciders, and they usually even have baked goods and candy shops. A farmer’s market can be a lot of fun for both of you to explore, and make sure you bring your own bags to fill them up and take home.
Why take your fashionista girlfriend to just one department store? There are a lot of outlet stores that are all around the USA, and they are usually situated in big strips containing lots and lots of them. Make a day out of traveling to an outlet mall and letting her go wild. There are shops there that aren’t just clothes, but perfume and accessories as well. There are even Yankee Candle outlet stores, so her whole house can smell great the next time you pop by.
Obviously, there are a lot of other places to take her shopping, and it all depends on what she’s into. Talk to her about where she’d like to go, and make it happen. She’ll really love you for it and your relationship will flourish.
