For many men it takes several years and sometimes more than one wife to learn how to buy a Christmas gift that a wife will actually, really and truly like getting. This is no small thing of course because wives tend to remember what they get and from whom, and quite often equate the gift they get with how they view others feelings for and/or about them. This is why it’s critical for men to figure out just what exactly their wife wants and then to move heaven and Earth to get that thing for her for Christmas. Below are the secrets for doing just that.
The first thing is to start listening to your wife when she talks to you; and not just when she’s telling you about stuff she wants. More often than not a woman, especially a wife will not just come right and tell a husband what she wants for Christmas; instead, she will dish out clues; clues that any good husband would not only pick up on, but would use as information that helps lead him to what she truly desires. So, start listening to pretty much everything she has to say to you, pretty much all the time. Besides helping you figure out what to get her for Christmas (or her birthday, your anniversary, etc.) you might also find that she starts to like talking with you again, not something to be overlooked in a marriage where two people have promised God and everybody else that they will cherish one another for so long as they both shall live.
The next thing is to enlist the aid and support of others; likely targets would be your kids, especially if you have daughters, and especially if they are over the age of fourteen. Friends are good resources too as are parents or pretty much anyone your wife is reasonably close with. Don’t be coy with these people, get right to the point and be prepared to dole out cash or other prizes for good answers.
Something else you might try is looking around your home and noting the things that your wife has bought herself over the years, or even those things that other people have given her that she clearly likes. You may start to notice some patterns, if so, that’s a good sign; it means you’re looking at her as a real human being with wants, desires and needs; instead of as, well, your wife. Use that information to ask yourself, what other new thing you buy might fit with the patterns you are seeing; these kinds of things are likely to produce very good results.
And last, but certainly not least is the old tried and true standby that goes by the name of, ASK HER WHAT SHE WANTS YOU IDIOT!
