Even though I’m happily married, I still get confused when it comes to buying a gift for my significant other. Girls always seem to have everything they want, and when you ask them, they get stuck for ideas! But then her smile sinks when she opens the present on her birthday or Christmas, and it’s not what she wants. One thing you should know is household items, underwear, and perfume are no-no’s when it comes to your other half’s present! In fact, according to this study, one in six couples admitted arguing over a poor present. Therefore, before you hit the shops, here are nine unmissable tips for men on what women really want this year.
A piece of jewellery that’s beautiful
It always scores highly on the list of ideal presents for ladies, so you should head to the jewellery store to find her something she will love. The good thing about buying a piece of bling for your other half is that it’s hard to go wrong with jewellery. As long as it’s beautiful, she is bound to appreciate the effort you make and will love to wear it out and about. Of course, you need to make sure you do get the right size for her when it comes to rings. But most other jewellery you can buy from stores comes in one size, so you can’t go wrong unlike when you buy her clothes. Remember to look at the jewellery she wears before making a decision. That way, you will choose something that’s perfect for her style! And don’t go cheap when it comes to buying your significant other jewellery. You don’t want her to get an infection as that £10 bracelet irritated her skin!
A gift that they will remember
When it comes to buying gifts, it’s easy to go for a gift such as a funny game or a makeup set that she will like. But she really wants something that she will remember forever. Otherwise, the gift isn’t very special, and she will forget what you got her. Therefore, choose her something unique that will stay in your mind. A photo album full of pictures of the two of you would always go down a treat. Or perhaps a show or cinema ticket that the two of you can go to in the not-so-distance future would be a memorable gift! Therefore, don’t make a quick decision that you will regret when they open the gift. Spend a little more time choosing something that’s perfect and the smile on her face will be rewarding!
A declaration of love
It’s easy to wonder when the last time was that you said I love you to your partner. But believe us, she will likely know the exact date and time it was. Therefore, for a perfect gift, you should make some form of a declaration of love for her. It might be that you write her a poem with a list of all your favourite things about her. Or you might want to pick her out a CD with your wedding song on it. It’s a great way to rekindle the love and remind each other why you got together in the first place. And remember to make sure you write I love you on the card that goes on her present!
