When there is a special occasion such as your husband’s birthday your anniversary then it is important that you spend time and do a lot of thinking before you actually race down the street to buy him a gift. A thoughtful gift is an ideal occasion for both of you to remember of the relationship you are having. 

Get to know him

Rather than just deciding on something off the top of your head, why don’t you do some research first? For example, you can go to the mall with him and casually start a conversation to see if there is something he was waiting to buy. You can also think about his hobbies; if you know that he loves to walk around in the summer, take hikes, walk your dog in the sun etc. you can buy him a pair of sunglasses and a sunglasses case. If he loves music or playing guitar, you can present him an autographed guitar by his favourite player. All in all it is the length you would go to get to know about him that matters. if you are facing an important milestone such as a significant anniversary or his 40th birthday, you can even go for a personalised gift like a piece of jewelry with his initials or the relevant year.

Don’t go for generic gifts

We see most of the time guys getting gifts such as shirts, wallets, pens and keychains. But it is well known that these are quite generic. When you have a male to give something to, the first option pops in to your head is a clothing item. So you will definitely drift towards buying a shirt or a tie. However those generic items might give the message that he is not important enough for you to spend time to get to know, or to find out what he really wants. So always ask after his preferences and keep an eye on what he chooses at a store. Even if you have been married for some time, it is not uncommon for a wife to not to know what the husband prefers at all times. It could also be that he has changed his views and opinions. Or, his preferences are updated; for example, if he is a car fanatic, with each new model that comes in to the market there will be changes in which brands he like to associate with.

“Time spent with you…”

Gifting a watch to your husband can signify a lot. It says that you are prepared to spend each passing minute with him. Or something like we are together, each passing second. Every time he wants to know the time, he will remember you and think of you. Choose a good branded watch and you should look for the best watch winder you can find. How much you care speaks volumes when a gift is a complete set of everything someone wants. A well thought out gift can bring long lost feelings; it can remind you of the better times you spent together. Most couples tend to forget the times when there was only the two of them, when kids come in to the family. But love and care for your spouse is something that should never die.
