Buying a gift for your wife can be daunting. Any gift needs to show that there was thought put into it – that it’s no easy box of chocolates or all-purpose gift card. If you show that you spent time and energy on her gift, your wife is sure to love whatever gesture you make.
A book of memories
One thoughtful and touching gift is to buy or make a book of memories. You can find books like these with suggestions already made for you, or you can make it yourself. Be sure to talk about all the happy times you’ve had together and the way you’ve impacted one another!
This one may seem fairly obvious, but it’s a thoughtful way to acknowledge all the hard work your wife puts in. Let her know you think she deserves to be pampered with a set of soothing lotions, bath salts, candles, and other accoutrements for a bit of self-indulgence. For a personal touch, you can include a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates that she can enjoy while relaxing.
A coupon for an outing
If your wife has a particular hobby she enjoys, why not pay for a day trip to do just that? Maybe she’s an avid rock climber and would love a day at the local climbing gym. Or maybe she’d enjoy a few hours on a local horse riding trail. It’s also an opportunity for the two of you to spend time together doing something fun.
Though candles are sometimes seen as a lazy gift, these take it up a notch. Aromatherapy is a way to relax through soothing scents, like peppermint and lavender. These are perfect for a wife who sometimes needs a break from the outside world.
If your wife loves a morning cup of joe, consider getting her a French press or a drip coffee machine. Coffee gourmands find brewing coffee a ritual, so having the right equipment means a lot. If she already has all the things she needs, you can also sign her up for a coffee subscription to her favorite company.
The next time a touring company makes its way close to you, take your wife out for a night on the town. This is another memorable way to spend some time together and make memories. Just make sure to buy well in advance so you get some good seats!
When buying a gift for your wife, the old saying is true: it’s the thought that counts. Showing her that you put consideration and effort into deciding what she’ll like will go a long way. Ultimately, she’ll love what you give her, since it’s from you!
