Keeping up to date with what your sweetheart wants can be daunting. Especially if you’re like me and your wife wants so many things. However there are ways you can keep tabs on what your sweetheart wants so that when the time comes for giving gifts, you have pulled off the impossible and appear with the perfect gift for your wife. It’s not the easiest thing to do, tracking the likes of your wife takes time, diligence, and a good memory. However there are cheats you can use to be able to be present with the perfect gift when it’s time.
Listen to Your Wife: It was recently my wife’s birthday. I took great occasion to really listen to her when we were out at different places. I also made occasion to take her out and around shopping so that she could be in the position to tell me what she might like. Innocuous comments like, “Aren’t these great?” led to my next step in this delicate dance.
Catalog Your Wife: I had to remember all these things she was telling me. I did what any good husband would have done and I cataloged what she told me. How did I do that, you ask? Well, when she would say she’d like something (and after vetting her baser instincts from things she actually wanted) I would either take a picture or scribble something down when she wasn’t looking. I now have a smart phone so I’d probably just dictate it or jot it down in my notes on there now.
Question Your Wife: Of course you do need to be sure that these things she’s picking up or mentioning are something that she really wants. You can start to solve this riddle by asking her. “Gee honey do you really want that?” or how about “What makes you want that thing so much?” or the even more direct, “Are you sure you want that?” All wonderful questions leading to answers you want to hear.
Love Your Wife: Of course you need to get your wife things which will make her happy, which are things that she really wants, and that lead you to a greater understanding of her and vice-versa. You don’t want to go through your marriage as casual acquaintances, the discovery doesn’t’ stop at dating. You should be saying all the time, “Well I never knew that!” even if secretly or subconsciously you did!
If you’re able to do these four things then you’ll be able to pull off the perfect gift for your sweetheart or wife anytime gift giving is called for.
