The Thinking Man’s Guide to a Stress-Free Christmas, hinges on three key rules: 1) Do what you’re told; 2) Don’t ask why; and 3) Execute the task fully. ~ GRAHAM OSTEEN
As men, we simply do not naturally get a lot of things. Regardless of any advice I could give you, I would say that you need to know your woman better than I or anyone else and your key to survival this Christmas is directly tied to your ability to think about your wife first.
In looking around the Internet, I found some very awful tips about what to do for your wife or girlfriend for Christmas – awful because Steph wouldn’t appreciate them. Perhaps for someone else, the idea of planting a flower or putting together a basket of soap is considered romantic – but doing these as a Christmas gift wouldn’t be welcomed in my house.
In any event, you need to make it custom.
Here are some tips I can attest are quality stuff, however, that I found on Winifred’s website. She is 66 years old, so you can probably trust the information:
1. It’s About Her, Not You! This has to be the cardinal rule: Do not, under any circumstances, buy her something that’s on your own wish list. This goes for electronics, guns, sports equipment, etc.
3. Look and Listen. If you want to survive, just do it. Ask around. If she has girlfriends, sister etc check with them. They usually know what’s suitable.
5. Big Pants or Black Lace? I think underwear and appliances follow the same rule. Good to have, but not appreciated as a Christmas present.
6. Don’t Attempt to “Do” Fashion. Unless she has shown you the exact belt or handbag of her desires and you are 100% you won’t screw it up, wait for another time to surprise her.
