“Some things make women feel nice about themselves!” says supermarket pandering to women

Attention all men! If you were wondering how to make your woman happy on Valentine’s day, why not take heed of some advice on offer in the media recently?

Why simple things like cuddles and kind words put a smile on our face

FORGET diamonds – a spontaneous cuddle is the best way to make the lady in your life smile.

When 2,000 women were quizzed, they said getting a hug from their partner was the number one thing to make them feel good.

They also got a warm glow from wearing comfortable underwear – and not just when it’s cold outside.

But men need not worry that their other half is planning a lifetime of wearing big, Bridget Jones-style knickers. The women said they also got the feel good factor from wearing sexy lingerie.

And in the Daily Mail:

What do women want? Cuddles and compliments according to a list of 50 things that make a lady feel good

It is said the best things in life are free.

And it would appear that still rings true for many women.

Cuddles and compliments are at the top of a list of 50 things that make a woman feel good.

But splashing out on a lady won’t go amiss; being bought flowers and presents are some material things that they enjoy.

They also get a buzz from treating themselves to a bargain, or pushing the boat out for new perfume or sexy underwear.

Women, it seems, are pretty simple folk, with simple tastes. A quick cuddle, a chocolate bar, a bubble bath, a little camembert and a good book are all rated among the 50 most pleasurable experiences in a woman’s life. Who would have thought that something as readily available as cheese, chocolate and bubble bath would cheer a woman up so much? Well, I can think of someone…

A spokesman for Sainsbury’s, which commissioned the ‘feel-good factor’ poll of 2,000, said: ‘In January, we all need a pick-me-up but as this survey shows, it doesn’t need to cost the earth.

‘With the average female stating she feels good in what she is wearing for just three days a week perhaps a few more surprise compliments, alongside tucking into a good camembert and a good book could brighten the winter months no end.’ 

Odd, then, that a supermarket which sells all manner of fairly everyday items might find – via a poll they commissioned through 72 Point’s OnePoll – that those everyday items are some of the things that make women feel best about themselves…
