Christmas Gifts for HerPosted on September 21, 2010
Buying for your wife, fiancée or female partner at Christmas can be at best nerve-wrecking and at worst the deciding factor in the entire relationship’s future. Well, that might be a little dramatic, but you get the idea. If you buy vouchers she’ll think you couldn’t be bothered putting thought into the gift buying process, if you buy her a present you run the risk of getting something she doesn’t like and have to witness that look upon her face of sheer disappointment mixed with fake gratefulness. This is a dangerous path for whoever takes it, so tread carefully. Here are a few ideas to point you in the right direction at the very least.
The most important thing you could do when in the predicament of choosing a Christmas gift for your partner is to steer conversations in your favour then listen intently. Before all the tricks begin, have a clear idea of the style of present you would like to get, for example, perfume, clothing, music, concert tickets, electronics etc. Always have a few alternatives for the plans that are perfect in theory but turn out to be more difficult to fulfil when it comes to the shopping trip. Please note that you will need at least a couple of months to fully exploit this method without being found out or left standing at the shops with bare shelves on Christmas eve.
Once you know the kind of gift you want to get for her, begin leading conversations in a direction where you find out a selection of options she would be happy with. Questions such as: What do you think of…..If you were to choose one which would it be and why…I’ve heard that item is really good, what do you think? Make sure, once you have discovered her true feelings about certain items you have been enquiring about, write it down somewhere safe and secret. A word of warning, if you start this line of questioning in December, she will see straight through you and know exactly your intent. Try to be clever when disguising this intent, or at least do this part as far in advance of Christmas as possible so she may even forget about it by the time Christmas day comes around.
Now that you know what you need to get, it’s time to go shopping. In most instances, this can be done online as well as on the High Street. When it is something very specific you are looking for, do not be tempted to look in bargain buckets. You may find something very close to what you’re looking for but at half the cost. Under no circumstances must you take this course of action. A cheap alternative is most certainly not what your wife or fiancée will appreciate when she unwraps that special gift. Do not take chances; proceed with purchasing the item only when it is exactly what you have been looking for.
It may seem like a long and difficult process, but it is definitely a worthwhile venture. The joy of witnessing your partner’s facial expression change from excited to anxious to exhilaration when she realises that you have given her a gift that she truly wants is prize enough for all your hard work and determination.
