And sometimes we screw up in a big way.
It may seem like they'll never speak to you, ever again.
But I would strongly advise you to try the following – as someone that can hold a good grudge, I can guarantee you that these would melt my cold heart.
1. Send them a Hippenings balloon
If you've only fucked up a wee bit then a balloon might be all it takes to get you back in the good books.
I mean who could refuse this cute thing?
2. A steak on a stone
Nothing says sorry like a big hunk of meat from Rustic Stone.
Unless you've fucked up in a major way.
Then perhaps this steak could be the first leg of your apologetic journey?
3. Grovel in front of a crowd
Pop The Cherry Comedy is for people who want to pop their literal comedy cherry.
However that is not your priority, but is your opportunity.
So if you think making a show of yourself and grovelling on a stage is what will make your angered other half accept your apology then get onto these lads.
It's on every Monday evening in Whelan's so you've no excuses.
4. Take them for a bottomless treat
Because food is the best way to the heart.
5. Get drunk with them in XICO
The scowls will turn into smiles after two or three margaritas.
I promise you.
6. Take them on a surprise trip
Although they may seem pissed off at the time – they will later thank you.
Just gonna leave this here for some inspo.
7. Fill their fridge
To the brim with all of their favourite foods and drinks.
Honestly, who could stay mad with a fridge of happiness?
8. Buy them a puppy
The DSPCA are always looking for people to adopt dogs, and if a dog is something they've always wanted then you might never fight again.
But be sure to think this one through and remember, puppies are forever – not just to say sorry.
A goldfish is also a good alternative.
9. Buy them a subscription
To Netflix, Spotify or a monthly, themed subscription box.
Not overly costly and honestly a sound gesture.
If all else fails...
