Christmas is near; I can already here the bells! Now if you are a loving husband and care enough for your wife and her feelings, then you are definitely thinking what to give her this Christmas, right?! Well, here is what to do. Go through the following ideas and make up your mind to whatever suits you. Trust me, they are all tried and tested and will work wonders for you. Merry Christmas!!
Pampering /Spa gift basket
Love is a gift. You can’t buy it, you can’t find it, and someone has to give it to you. Learn to be receptive of that gift.
Now when I say a basket, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a real basket. One could use a list of items as a basket/box/case. It is basically all about using your imagination and creativity in order to make even a simpler gift look great to eyes and doubling the happiness of the taker. So what we can do is, if you don’t actually have a basket, you could use large/medium (depending on the number of items) ladies hand bag, a huge mug/pot, a large picnic basket, baby bath tub, a cowboy hat, a laundry basket or a large cosmetic bag! Not bad eh? Now before I give you the ideas for the items to select, do remember to put scented candles, chocolates and flowers to go with either anyway. Here is the list of items you can select for a pampering or a spa basket – bubble bath, bath crystals, an exotic sponge, relaxation eye mask, massage creams, aroma therapy oils, various bath accessories, scented soaps, perfumed powder, perfume, a new set of towels, bath gown/slippers… and it won’t cost much if you could add a few sweets to sweeten your effort a little more.
Take her for a surprise outing/trip
If you give what can be taken, you are not really giving. Take what you are given, not what you want to be given. Give what cannot be taken.
It is always the best decision to take your wife out to either an exotic scene or an extravagant place for dinner once in a while. But when it comes to once a year occasions, it is most sensible to go to a distant place/location to spend some quality time with your partner. It shouldn’t be a problem to decide a place if your wife has shared her desire with you sometime ago. But even if she hasn’t, you could do it yourself by doing a little research. Make sure you know your budgets and are able to find the best travel agent. When reserving a place, you could ask the staff to keep it a secret until the right time. Do not forget to carry with you some of the most important things you and your partner could need like your partner’s carry-on bag, a travel box/bag which could contain extras like champagne, chocolates, picnic lunch etc.
It isn’t the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it.
It might sound a common idea, but believe you me, gold works wonders no matter how many ever times you use it as a gift item; your wife is going to treasure it every time. And nowadays, gold makers have made the items in such a way to fit for every kind of budget. All you have to do is act smart, and choose whatever suits your pocket. You should be able to find ‘gold plated’ items as well. And for gold plated items, there are so many offers these days you will just have to spend time and think as to what she would prefer! As for real gold item suggestions, I admit there won’t be countless options. But for a start you could choose from – a ring, a light bracelet, a chain, a pendent or a chain and a pendent both, a broche, earrings, tops, a gold pen and even a gold case. A gold ring is a really nice option. You can make your mind up for a simple band or the one with stone. Remember – if it is gold, it should better be in your partner’s hold!
A whole new wedding gown
You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.
Yes! That’s what you just read. Imagine the look of surprise and pleasure on your her face. Why not surprise her this Christmas with a brand new wedding gown/dress for her to wear it for you to re-live a moment dear to both of you. This special gift and the celebration should be kept between the two of you, so that you two are able to make the most of it by sharing not just your love but the enjoyable nostalgic memories related to it. Some special memorable moments can definitely be celebrated at a surprising time, if not every time. It all depends on how special they are for you and how much you both value them. If you think your wife would be happy to dress up for in a wedding dress once again, then it is worth a try. You can choose a dress of your choice, or secretly, long before the time to come, could take her and make her show you the one she might desire. And then, Surprise!
Spend time with her – make her feel special
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
Spending time together is of different types. And here what we are talking about is a special gift for her to make her feel very special. If you think it has been a while since you spent some quality time with your wife, or did something surprisingly pleasing for her, then I guess it is time you choose this one for her. To help you make this easier let’s consider a few options – if it’s just one day then you could start off by not only waking up early, but preparing her breakfast and cleaning up before she wakes up. You could do all the little things she would least expect from you to be doing up so early.
But if it is about spending quality time with her and for long then it would be worth it if you could take your vacations early this year. That way, you could do a lot more things for her and with her. There won’t be any suggestions required, but you will have to make sacrifices and a few compromises to make it all happen as not just a surprise, but a total package full of surprises!
May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
