Christmas time is a time of sharing not only gifts but love and emotions. So make sure the gift that you give your wife or loved one this Christmas says what you mean and not the wrong thing.
Just because an item is on sale at this time of year doesn’t mean that it makes a wonderful gift. It does mean that the stores are trying to sell any and all of their merchandise and this brief but desperate attempt gives consumers buying advantages where previously there may not have been one. So while the new refrigerator might not make a great present that says how much you love and respect them, it might be the best way to help set the Christmas mood of giving and happiness.
Still, a Christmas gift to your wife or special loved one should convey meaning, anything from deep love to loyalty. Unfortunately there are a good many more things that can be conveyed. That is why it is usually a bad idea to buy gifts from the following Christmas sale categories.
Cleaning Equipment. If you are considering buying that priced just right carpet cleaner, steam mop or vacuum cleaner as a gift for anyone other than yourself forget it. A gift that requires work to use it is probably not going to be received well- not by the cleaning lady and not by most mates. However, it is a good time to update the household’s cleaning utilities. If you can afford to buy the carpet cleaner and are aware that the house needs it, then buy it not as a Christmas gift but as a needed household utility.
Intimate apparel. In giving intimate clothing, you are making a bold statement. There are an uncountable number of ways that can go wrong. But only you can know what your mate will think of this as a Christmas present, so if you know that there will only be happiness at the receipt of such an item then by all means go for it.
Large appliances. Some large appliances also go under cleaning equipment but I am talking about cook stoves, refrigerators and such. Some woman might want a new cook stove for Christmas but most aren’t. Most would be depressed that their husband would put them in the same category as house needs.
So take advantage of this year’s Christmas sales and buy the perfect gift for your wife. A gift that says all the right things and none of the wrong things to the woman you love.
