Only you know your spouse like you do. Granted, her family and his friends may understand the types of hobbies ahe enjoys or the types of events she enjoys in her free time. However, as the spouse and the love of her life, only you know the way to her heart.
With that in mind, you want to get her the perfect give for her birthday (or her special day, whatever it may be) and you don't want to have to guess at what the best ideas will be. For a complete list, trying to click here and get some ideas.
If those ideas don't do it for you, here is a sure-fire way to figure out exactly what she wants wrapped up for her this year on one of her MANY special days!
1. Listen to her share her dreams with you
She comes home from a long day at work each day and settles down at dinner (after making and preparing it for you most likely!) to tell you all about how her boss made some odd decisions today. However, are you listening to her when she tells you her life goals for what she really wants to do? Are you hearing her when she speaks of that special someday and what she really wants out of life? Take a good listen to her next time she chooses to share her hopes and dreams for the future and you may just get a glimpse of what she'd love to see on her birthday list...really LISTEN this time!
Here are some great places to start for an anniversary specifically:
2. Figure out what gets her excited...AKA: what gets her talking
Sure, she has the friends over on a weeknight to watch a sitcom or just hang out and talk over dinner. Sure, they choose to sip on some drinks and talk about the ups and downs of life. But listen carefully; when you least expect it, you may get a subtle comment about a product or service they seem to think worth speaking aboutl. Listen for certain criticisms of the products and also for admiration. When you hear admiring remarks, take out a piece of paper and a pen and write it down: you may just stumble across something that she's always wanted when you'd least expect to hear it!
3. Ask her what she wants: straight-up
Forget setting a budget and forget being practical: you can always scale down to reality once you learn what she'd really like for a gift this year. This time, just come right out with it and ask her what she wants! Sure, you may ask what she'd like to do most this summer and the answer may be a very expensive item. However, you could either scale down the request to include a smaller fulfillment of that same item, go in with a couple friends in regards to a time-shared typed of deal; or even rent her something nice for a day to fulfill that larger gift idea. When all else fails, there are similar gifts to what she wants that exist as well and don't necessarily have to be the entire deal of buying a massive new toy! Get creative and show your woman you've been listening to her most desirable gift ideas this year!
