So many of my friends are asking what to buy husbands for Christmas? What gift should I get my husband? Is there a gift guide for husbands?
Every November, wives and girlfriends stress over what to get for their significant others. It's hard to pick a good gift.
The struggle is real.
Sure, you could buy another tool set, but that shows you are thinking about, well, you...instead of HIM. Unless a tool set is on his wish list and he specifically asks for it (in which case you should RUN to the tool store), the best gift isn't something you found by Googling "gift guide for husbands."
A thoughtful gift should:
1. demonstrate appreciation for him over convenience to you (yes, that does mean that instead of buying jumper cables, suggesting that his only role is to rescue you on the side of the road, you buy something he wants), and
2. let him know that you understand him beyond his work life and truly get the special something that creates joy for him.
The answer to the question of what to give, dear ladies, is that your Christmas gift to your husband really depends on what he enjoys, rather than what he does.
For the man who needs an escape from the office, instead of getting the perfect work bag, pick up a travel bag and a travel notebook for a weekend getaway.
For the slightly geeky sort of guy, consider a top-of-the-line Surface Pro 4 tablet, a gravity-defining bluetooth speaker, or the voice-controlled Amazon Echo for the home.
Have a gamer? An Xbox One is a great gift. Don't forget the Xbox LIVE account.
So I know you are wondering what I am getting for my husband this year.
Obviously, I can't tell you, as he reads my blog. But he is a gamer, so last year, I got him these wife-cancelling headphones for gaming.
Seriously, with these on, he cannot hear a single thing that I say. He seems to love them. Hmmph!
