It doesn’t matter if she’s your sister, wife, girlfriend, or friend. If you have a girl in your life, at one point or another, you’re going to want to help her get through that time of the month. Bear in mind that this only works depending on how close you are, the last thing you need is to come off as a creep by sending a period care package to a girl who barely knows you.

If you’re thinking of what to get a girl or your woman when she is on her period, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Let this be your one-shop-guide for exclusively brilliant items you could put in a gift box to make a girl feel loved on days that are not so lovable.

When it comes to menstrual period, the trick is to think of things that could lessen the discomfort a woman has to go through, the last thing we need is for her to experience more pain and discomfort, so there’s a thin line between treating her to all her favorites and making her forget about all the discomfort she’s feeling. 

Dark Chocolate

You may be skeptical about this one because of the connection between menstrual cramps and anything that might be put under the sweet tooth category. But we’re here to tell you that dark chocolate is actually known to have some benefits, it helps relieve cramps by relaxing the muscles, thanks to its magnesium properties.

So one item on your list should be dark chocolate, make sure you go for the good stuff, and if she isn’t a chocolate girlie, don’t worry, there’s more items on the list.

Teas For Menstrual Cramps

Warm drinks are known to help take the load of pain away when experiencing cramps, but you can’t go for just any type of tea, so listen up. You need to look out for certain flavors like ginger tea, chamomile tea, peppermint tea, green tea, cinnamon tea, and so many others. You don’t want to get confused by the endless options, so stick to these for now. 

Teas are a suitable alternative to period pain killers, if she’s known to prefer pain killers, you could go for those instead.

Go For Period Products

To be fair, period products cost a few extra bucks these days, so it will be helpful if you take one thing off her list of things to buy during this period (pun intended). Period products such as Sanitary pads, tampons and so on, are super essential, so you’d basically be a lifesaver. 

Scented Candles/Facial Scrub

A spa date is an ideal form of spoiling your girl, but not everyone would feel comfortable in that setting during their period, so you could go for the next best thing. If you know a thing or two about relaxation and self-care, then you’re in luck. All you need to do is find a plug for the best scented candles, the best facial scrubs to help her get through all the annoying acne that comes with periods, you could even go for favorite skincare products.

If you’re confused on what to get, it helps to go for brands that are known and have great reviews. 

Healthy Snacks and Food

It’s not all types of food or snacks that go well with having a period, especially in those first few days of a period that are the absolute worst, so you need to stick with options that are healthy. A good rule of thumb is to go for food and snacks that are rich in fiber, so there’s brown rice, raspberries, pears, apples, oats, bananas, sweet potatoes, popcorn, and so on.

It’s also best to make sure she stays away from alcohol and salty meals during this period, so if you happen to be the in-house chef for the day, make sure you lean towards healthy food options.

Stuffed Animals, Flowers, Handwritten Notes

There’s nothing more cliche, yet totally romantic than these three items, you could go for more or less, depending on the type of person she is. Ideally, a cuddly stuffed animal, beautiful flowers and handwritten notes will do the trick. At the end of the day, it's the thought that counts, and from our calculations, these items will go a long way.

Physical Presence/Touch 

What could be more pleasing than a man who is there for you at all times? Probably a lot, but this is the icing on the cake. Your presence will surely go a long way, and whether you just lay in bed with her, cuddling or not cuddling, that will certainly be a breath of fresh air that takes her mind off everything else. 

Take care of her, giver her a massage, go on a walk together, ensure she stays hydrated, get her a heating pad that could be placed over her lower abdomen to help ease the pain, there’s so many things to be done, but trust us when we say, you’re winning the best man of the year award if you show how much you care for her, it’s really the little things that go a long way.
